Over the past half-decade, the realm of dental research has experienced a remarkable surge in growth. The fundamental objective of research remains twofold: to forge new insights and to devise inventive avenues for enhancing the accessibility of existing knowledge to those in need. The bedrock of clinical practice should be firmly rooted in scientific evidence. While material and laboratory research hold significance, there exists an underutilization of clinical research to underpin its translation into tangible clinical applications.
Research stands as a systematic approach, aimed at comprehending, documenting, scrutinizing, and articulating the uncommon clinical occurrences that dentists routinely encounter. It is not an isolated specialty reserved for a select few; rather, it operates as a comprehensive methodology woven into the fabric of everyday clinical practice.
