To support a shift toward a more preventive and outcomes-focused philosophy, the ICCMS™ group developed a framework that synthesizes risk assessment data with caries classifications.
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 lesions and treat them non-operatively wherever possible and, where surgery is needed ICCMSTM 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 are shown to you at their most granular level. This gives you as a researcher the ability to more accurately assess dental caries - measuring from an initial white spot lesion only seen on a dry surface to the most severe lesions.
Since 2004, ICDAS has been cited in 119 peer reviewed papers by authors from 22 countries.
Over the last decades, the ICDAS measurement and staging of caries has become a very well-used method of measurement in research studies and communication of their results around the world.
