  • Abstract

    We live in an era of evolution. Conventionally, clinical decisions in dentistry have been based on the experience of the dentist. If a given treatment seemed to work, it was utilized again; if the results were disappointing, the procedure was deserted. Evaluating clinical treatment in this fashion is difficult because it is hard to know which factors are important for success and which ones contribute to failure. This lead to a new model called evidence-based dental care. A great effort and research are currently being directed at developing an evidence-based approach. This paper aims to give an overview of the evolution and importance of evidence-based dentistry.
