Prosthodontics like many other clinical procedures lacks support of good evidence. The main aim of this paper is to check current evidence for selected procedures. A MEDLINE/PubMed search was conducted for articles on the selected items. Many opinions are based more on belief rather than scientific evidence; hence, many "old truths" regarding prosthodontic interventions can be called dogmas. Many common clinical procedures lack scientific support; this is one of the observations revealed while inspecting prosthodontic literature.
