ICCMSTM and ICDAS can be used in every area of dentistry
To support a shift toward a more preventive and outcomes-focused philosophy, the ICCMSTM group developed a framework that synthesizes risk assessment data with caries classifications.
The aim is to help clinicians systematically identify patients at risk of caries detect initial and treat them non-operatively wherever possible and, where surgery is needed ICCMS provides guidance on healthy tissue preservation.
As a result this framework will deliver health maintenance, disease control, patient-centered quality metrics as well as the wider impacts of using the system.
Our Core Training elearning programme is structured to reflect these elements and is tailored to your specific field of dentistry. So, for example, in the ‘Classification’ module, you will see that the caries codes have been collapsed to align with treatment options to make their usage more relevant to you in general practice.
