Do we need a randomized controlled trial to assess trivial, albeit standard used, clinical steps in bonding? The answer is yes, but there are some interpretation issues


Eliades, Theodore (2015). Do we need a randomized controlled trial to assess trivial, albeit standard used, clinical steps in bonding? The answer is yes, but there are some interpretation issues. European Journal of Orthodontics, 37(2):156-157.

Abstract

The feasibility of generalizing and extrapolating the results of the RCT assessing the necessity of a bonding stage to the routine clinical situation is discussed in this commentary. The lack of difference in failure rate between the two procedures followed may not receive the dimensions of a directive to alter a step of the bonding process, before other factors related to the performance of the materials are considered.
