SAC Assessment Tool

Developed by the International Team of Implantology (ITI), the SAC Assessment Tool is an online risk evaluation instrument which classifies restorative and surgical cases.

SAC classification system

The SAC Assessment Tool is based on guidelines developed at an ITI Consensus Conference in 2007 and classifies cases as Straightforward, Advanced or Complex (SAC).

The SAC classification system helps dental practitioners to identify the degree of complexity and potential risk involved in individual cases. Accordingly, they can match cases to their skills and level of experience. The system also develops their theoretical knowledge.

This SAC Assessment Tool is provided free of charge to the dental community on the ITI webseite ( It is now also available as an iPad app and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store. ITI members also benefit from additional features.
