Interactive assessment tool to evaluate the risk and complexity of individual dental implant cases.
The SAC Assessment Tool reflects the normative guidelines developed by the ITI at a Consensus Conference in 2007 for various types of restorative and surgical cases based on a classification system referred to as SAC (Straightforward, Advanced, Complex). The results of the conference proceedings were then published in 2009 in cooperation with the Quintessence Publishing Group in a book entitled "The SAC Classification in Implant Dentistry". The SAC Assessment Tool distills the content of this book in an easy-to-use process that takes the user through each step necessary to identify the degree of complexity and potential risk involved in individual cases. Dental practitioners can thus better match cases to their skills and level of experience at the same time as developing their knowledge at a theoretical level.
By making this tool publicly available, the ITI underlines its commitment to quality assurance in implant therapy with the objective of ensuring best-possible treatment for patients.
