Low intensity pulsed ultrasound has been a therapeutic modality in various fields for many years. LIPUS has shown to have beneficial consequences on treatment of fractures, treating mal union and non-union of bone, condylar growth, repair and regeneration. LIPUS is one of the methods of tissue engineering which can help in the repair and regeneration of tooth supporting tissues. The aim of this paper is to enlighten and make clinicians aware of this newer modality and it’s and uses. Also it aims at addressing the need for more research in this area for promising results.
