I understand that unless both steps are completed, the tooth can become reinfected which can lead to general health complications and the loss of the tooth. Therefore, it is essential that I complete the tooth. therefore, it is essential that I complete the root canal once the treatment is initiated in a timely manner (usually 1 to 4 weeks); OTHERWISE, THE FIRST STAGE OF TREATMENT MAY NEED TO BE REPEATED, INCURRING ADDITIONAL FEES. 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 individual patient differences there exists a risk of failure, relapse, selective retreatment, or worsening on my condition would occur sooner without the recommended treatment. 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.
