Background : The goal of evidence-based dentistry is to help practitioners provide their patients with optimal care. Dentists need to make clinical decisions based on limited scientific evidence. In clinical practice, a clinician must weigh a myriad of evidences every day. Evidence-Based Periodontology aims to facilitate such an approach and it offers a bridge from science to clinical practice. This article will review the concepts of Evidence-Based Periodontology and implantology. Providing the most appropriate periodontal treatment requires an accurate diagnosis, performing optimum treatment, and monitoring the patient. Keeping up to date with current information, having a system for properly evaluating it, and using the knowledge to help make treatment decisions improves the opportunity for successful outcomes. The Evidence-based (EB) approach is a straightforward, systemic process which helps the clinician and researcher evaluate the relevant information regarding diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and experimental decisions. Applying the Evidence-Based process to the periodontal literature will improve periodontal treatment.
