Full Text

In the article titled, “Bioadhesive chlorhexidine gel for reduction of alveolar osteitis incidence: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials” published in pages 35-40, issue 2, vol. 5 of Dental Hypotheses[1], the sentence under the heading “Data analysis” is written incorrectly as “Inverse-variance weighting was implemented to calculate the random effect summary estimates and to produce a forest plot using the number of participants with events and total number of participants in experimental and control groups of each study”. The sentence should be read correctly as “We used Mantel-Haenszel test to estimate odds ratio (OR) by the number of participants with events and total number of participants in experimental and control groups of each study.”
