The capacity of contemporary scientific literature directed at dental practice sometimes creates problems and questions that the dentist needs to find an answer. Often, contradictory informations are placed in terms of which technique to apply and which one is useless.
The implementation of contemporary scientific dental advancements are always a guide in the policies and plans of the dental industry, which will then suggest good practice which is in line with the ultimate goal: improving the solutions for better oral health and at the same time, ensuring good access to a favorable dentist protection.
Most authors define Evidence Based Dentistry (EBD) as '' integrating individual clinical expertise with best available external clinical evidence from targeted systematic research ''. At the same time, the EBD provides guidance to help dentists to make an intelligent decision. In short, evidence-based dentistry is an attempt to ensure the patient's right to receive an appropriate procedure, for the right condition at the right time.
It is generally accepted that the doctor or dentist with a long-term experience achieves better quality of health care. However, recent studies have shown that there is in fact an inverse relationship between the number of years of practice and the quality of health care provided.
Evidence-based dentistry is a process that reconstructs the way we think about clinical problems. At the heart of the definition of a WBD is the patient, which includes a reasonable integration of systematic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence. The lecture will describe together, the advantages and problems of introducing an evidence-based approach to dentistry from the aspect of everyday oral surgical procedures.
