INFORMED CONSENT FOR ORAL SURGERY AND ANESTHESIA

I understand that the purpose of the procedure/ surgery is to treat and possibly correct my diseased oral/ maxillofacial tissues. I have been advised that if this condition persists without treatment or surgery my present oral surgery will worsen in time and the risk to my health may include, but are not limited to the following swelling, pain, infection, cyst formation, gum diseases, dental caries, malocclusion , premature loss of teeth and or premature loss of bone. I have been informed of possible alternative methods of treatment, if any.

The Doctor has explained to me that there are certain inherent and potential risks in any treatment or procedure-which include, but are not limited to:

1. Postoperative discomfort and swelling that may necessitate several days of recuperation.
2. Heavy bleeding that may be prolonged.
3. Injury to adjacent teeth and fillings.
4. Postoperative infection requiring additional treatment.
5. Stretching of the two corners of the mouth with resultant cracking and bruising.
6. Restricted mouth opening for several days or weeks.
7. Breakage of the jaw.
8. Decision to leave a small piece of the root in the jaw when its removal would require extensive surgery.
9. Injury to the nerve underlying the teeth resulting in numbness or tingling of the lip, chin, gums, cheek, teeth, and/or tongue on the operated side: this may persist for several weeks, months, or in some remote instances, permanently.
10. Opening of the sinus ( a normal cavity situated above the upper teeth). Possibly requiring additional surgery.

If any unforeseen condition should arise in the course of the operation, calling for the Doctor’s judgement or for procedures in addition to or different from those now contemplated, I request the Doctor to do whatever he/she may deem advisable.

No guarantee or assurance has been given to me that the proposed treatment will be curative and/ or successful to my complete satisfaction. Due to the individual patient differences ? exists a risk of failure. Relapse, selective treatment, or worsening of my present condition despite the care provided.

However, it is the doctor’s opinion that therapy would be helpful, and that a worsening of my condition would occur sooner without the recommended treatment.

I have had an opportunity to discuss and have made a full disclosure of my past medical and health his tory including any serious problems and/ or injuries. This includes any past or present substance abuse.

Because successful treatment often depends upon compliance with a Doctor’s instructions, I agree to cooperate completely with the recommendations of the doctor and/or his/her assistant while I am under his/her care, realizing that any lack of same could result in a less than optimum result.
