Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease of multifactorial origin that represents the destruction of periodontium due to the upregulation of immune response and in the presence of disease-causing pathogens, resulting in loss of attachment and bone loss. Advances in periodontal disease control cracked wide open various therapies that will successfully arrest periodontal infections. One such new technique is bone one session treatment (BOST) for the treatment of periodontal disease without an invasive procedure. BOST is an aerobic treatment that eliminates the periodontal disease in the deepest pockets and supporting alveolar bone. This technique predicts the same phenomenon in periodontal diseases healing and repair, works by influencing the disease etiological factors and aiding healing by three immune phases. This plays a role in altering the pathogenesis and disease progression by changing the defensive phase against bacteria and other microorganisms into a regeneration phase to achieve a new attachment. We conclude that a noninvasive technique (BOST) can alter the pathogenesis by removing the etiological factors as well as guide the tissue for regeneration and new attachment.
