In the last five years, the field of dentistry research has grown at an exponential rate. The basic goal of research is to generate new knowledge or to find innovative ways to make existing knowledge more accessible to people who require it. Clinical practise should be established on the basis of scientific evidence. Although material and laboratory research are important, clinical research is not being used to support its translation into clinical practise. Research is a methodical strategy to understanding, documenting, analysing, and reporting uncommon clinical observations that dentists encounter in everyday clinical practise, not a discrete specialty practised by a few.
