Evidence-based decision-making in endodontics

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Evidence-based dentistry may be defined as an approach to oral healthcare that integrates the best available clinical evidence to support a practitioner’s clinical expertise for each patient’s treatment needs and preferences and should be routinely adopted by practitioners. The goal of endodontic treatment is to eliminate a bacterial infection inside the root canal system and to prevent the invasion of bacteria and their by-products from the root canal system into the periradicular tissues in order to preserve natural teeth. Modern endodontic technologies improve the ability to treat and retain teeth, resulting in a predictably favorable long-term outcome and allowing retention of the natural dentition.
