Authors' objectives:

The purpose of this report is to provide a foundation for reviewing the scientific literature concerning the methods used in dentistry.

Authors' recommendations: This report does not represent a systematic, scientific review. Rather, it identifies the opportunities for assessing the scientific literature on methods in dentistry and describes several contexts in which assessments may play an important role. As highlighted in the report, the scientific evidence is deficient as regards most of the methods used in dentistry. This does not mean that the methods are necessarily ineffective, or that they should not be used. It is the hope of the authors that the upcoming reports on dental treatment methods, in addition to supporting the clinical work of dentistry staff, will also stimulate clinical research in priority areas.
