Evidence Based Dentistry™

Evidence-based dentistry™ (EBD) is based on three important domains: the best available scientific evidence, a dentist’s clinical skill and judgment, and each individual patient’s needs and preferences. Only when all three are considered for each patient is EBD actually being practiced.

The first domain, evidence, is there to inform dentists and patients, but never to mandate a specific course of treatment. In the diagram to the right, three circles (Evidence, Clinical Judgment, and Patient Needs and Preferences) are used to illustrate the EBD process as being in the center where the circles overlap.

EBD uses a systematic approach that includes a four-part series of questions with the acronym, PICO: (P) patient/problem, (I) intervention, (C) comparison, and (O) outcomes.

Analyzing Outcomes

PnP-separator-v1

Drs. Parker, Pennington and Greer evaluate cases based on four components of dental treatment: periodontal, biomechanical, functional, and aesthetic analyses.

Periodontal analysis

Periodontal analysis is the evaluation of the existing bone structure and potential for developing gum disease. Some of the factors that influence the predisposition for gum disease are chronic inflammatory diseases such as diabetes and habits such as smoking.

Biomechanical analysis

Biomechanical analysis is the evaluation of the tooth structure, past decay, and/or erosion. When teeth are severely decayed, dental implants may be recommended to replace teeth that cannot be salvaged.

Functional analysis

Functional analysis is the evaluation of occlusion, how the upper and lower teeth meet when chewing or at rest. Balancing your bite is an important factor for lasting treatment, as a misaligned bite can lead to wear and tear on natural teeth as well as restorations. Temporomandibular (jaw joint) issues may also be caused by a poorly aligned bite.

pnp-check-icon

Aesthetic analysis

Aesthetic analysis is subjective, and the patient’s opinion plays a large part in this evaluation. Considerations include recessed gums, stained or crooked teeth, and how teeth fit in proportion to facial shape.

Your doctor will use these evaluations to provide treatment options, which you will review together and determine a course of action that suits your needs and budget.
