This 2018 surveillance review has taken into account 4 NICE guidelines on the theme of oral health:
Dental checks: intervals between oral health reviews (2004) NICE guideline CG19
Oral health: local authorities and partners (2014) NICE guideline PH55
Oral health promotion: general dental practice (2015) NICE guideline NG30
Oral health for adults in care homes (2016) NICE guideline NG48
We will not update the guideline on dental checks at this time.
During surveillance editorial or factual corrections were identified, which will be addressed through editorial amendments.
No new evidence was identified which suggested NICE guideline CG19 should be updated. An important ongoing trial was identified – Investigation of NICE Technologies for Enabling Risk-Variable-Adjusted-Length Dental Recalls Trial (INTERVAL Dental Recalls Trial). We will monitor the progress of this trial and assess the results for any impact on the guideline when available.
