It is the aim of this paper to give a few examples of dogmas related to prosthodontics and oral implants and to discuss the controversial role of occlusion in the aetiology of temporomandibular disorders. New knowledge is developing at a rapidly increasing rate in dentistry, as in other areas of society. Our lecturers at university taught us many useful things. But, as time goes by, what is still relevant? Some methods are so well established that they deserve to be called dogmas. It is implied that a dogma is not supported by strong evidence, even though it has existed and been practised for a long time. In the era of evidence-based dentistry it is appropriate to scrutinize such issues. A review of the current literature indicates that conflicting opinions exist concerning a number of common procedures in clinical dentistry, mainly due to a scarcity of good studies with unambiguous results. There is therefore a need for more high-quality clinical research in attempting to reach the goal of evidence-based clinical practice. The dental community should take an active part in this process.
