EBD summaries posted on

For help with clinical decision-making, the ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry website offers critical summaries that provide concise analysis and appraisals of evidence-based systematic reviews from other publications. The appraisals are prepared by experts working with the ADA EBD Center. 

Here are some of the newest critical summaries posted on the website:

  • Limited evidence for single-dose flurbiprofen for acute postoperative pain;
  • Limited evidence on the effectiveness of mini-implants as orthodontic anchorage;
  • Inconclusive evidence for the accuracy of implant impressions;
  • Limited evidence suggests that starting the use of fluoride toothpastes in children under 12 months of age increases risk of dental fluorosis.
