2021 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session

The 99th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 45th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from July 21-24, 2021 as a Virtual Experience.

The recordings in this library from the meeting are a selection of the science that was to be presented as part of the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, the IADR Academy and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.

This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles

Session Description 
CariesCare International-CCI (based in ICCMS™) promotes a dental-practice friendly patient-centred, risk-based approach to caries management. It comprises a health outcomes-focused system that aims to maintain oral health and preserve tooth structure in the long-term.

The COVID-19 pandemic current restrictions to dental care due to the risk of transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus via aerosols generating procedures (AGP), together with the higher likelihood to children’s untreated caries progression, the higher complexity and costs, led us to conduct a multicentre series of cases to implement CCI without AGP and replacing -when possible- on-site care activities with remote ones during the COVID-19 era.

This multicenter project involves the four-step structured process (4-D cycle) of the CCI system adapted for the pandemic, minimizing AGP and number of on-site appointments: 1D - DETERMINE caries-risk, 2D - DETECT & ASSESS lesions, 3D: DECIDE a personalised care plan, and 4D: DO Preventive and tooth-preserving care. It includes a major component of short oral-health change behaviour tool (based on the COM-B behavior model) to improve toothbrushing and diet behaviors and a 'How to' non-AGP CCI designed e-learning.

Outcomes include caries progression, caries risk, oral-health behavior, caregivers’ and dentists’ acceptability through treatment efficacy inventory, and cost aspects.

The symposium introduces the viability of a clinical non AGP multicentre project in children with CCI as a four-step structured process (4-D cycle), following with the design and implementation of a toothbrushing and diet short change behaviour tool. It shows up-to-date results and challenges in Latin American, European and USA centers and concludes with non-AGP CCI implementation during the pandemic.

Learning Objectives
  • Attendees will be offered best practice and evidence based guide on caries management to change their attitude and approach within the practice focusing on health outcomes.
  • Attendees will be provided new knowledge in the patient caries management cycle supported on oral health change behavior.
  • Attendees will be offered an alternative CariesCare adapted for the COVID-19 pandemic minimizing AGP and on-site care.
