Dental Office Informed Consent
It is important to us that you fully understand the treatment we are recommending and allow us to perform. We want to involve you in all decisions concerning any invasive (under the gum line and/or soft tissues) procedures you may need. We take informed consent very seriously in our office. Therefore, this form should be signed by you only when you understand that there is risk associated with dental procedures, and that all your questions have been answered. Dental treatment is not to be taken for granted as being routine or without risk for complications. As with all medical treatment, including dental treatment, there are no guarantees that the results will be as planned and to each individual’s satisfaction. When dealing with the human body there are potential variables which may or may not be predictable. Complication rates in dentistry are low but do exist. Even a minor procedure, like a “filling”, can lead to an unforeseen complication. For example, a routine “Novocain” injection could lead to an allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, facial hemorrhage, swelling, bruising, and even hospitalization or death. Granted these are exceedingly uncommon, individuals who are about to have dental treatment should be made aware of this prior to consenting. For example, whenever tooth preparation or drilling is involved, the decay could lead to pulpal (nerve) exposure, fractured tooth, and/or post treatment pain to biting and to thermal sensitivity. Most post-operative discomfort is transient, but some may persist and necessitate further treatment. The above examples are possible complications with dental treatment.
I have read, understand and consent to dental treatment:
