Information for Patients Undergoing Dental

Treatment

Please   note   that   there   are   certain   potential   risks   with   ANY   dental   procedure, these are not probable results but statistical possibilities (read below).    1. DRUGS, MEDICATIONS & MIS-INFORMATION                                 Medications    may    be    required    and    can    cause    allergic    reactions.    Please disclose     all     pre-existing     allergies     and     diseases     to     the     dentist.     Any complications    arising    out    of    mis-information    of    any    pre-existing    allergies, diseases or conditions are your own responsibility.    2. CHANGES IN TREATMENT PLAN During   treatment   it   may   be   necessary   to   change   or   add   procedures   because of   conditions   found   while   working   on   the   teeth   that   were   not   discovered   during examination,   the   most   common   being   root   canal   therapy   following   routine restorative   (fillings,   crowns,   bridges,   gum   surgery)   procedures.   The   additional cost of these, is your responsibility.    3. REMOVAL OF TEETH Alternatives   to   tooth   extraction   may   include   RCT,   crowns,   and   gum   surgery, etc.   Removing   teeth   does   not   always   remove   all   the   infection,   and   it   may   be necessary   to   have   further   treatment.   There   are   risks   involved   in   having   teeth removed,   some   of   which   and   not   limited   to,   are   pain,   swelling,   infection,   dry socket,   numbness   in   the   teeth,   lips,   tongue   etc.   (paresthesia)   which   can   last for   days   or   months,   or   fractured   jaw/teeth/restorations.   You   may   need   further treatment   by   a   specialist   or   even   hospitalization   if   complications   arise   during or following treatment, the cost of which is your responsibility.   4. CROWN, BRIDGES, AND CAPS Sometimes   it   is   not   possible   to   match   the   colour   of   natural   teeth   exactly   with artificial   teeth.      Temporary   crowns   may   come   off   easily,   please   ensure   that they   are   kept   on   till   final   crowns   are   cemented.   The   final   opportunity   to   make changes   in   your   new   crown,   bridge,   or   cap   (including   shape,   fit,   size,   and colour) will be before cementation.   5. DENTURES, COMPLETE OR PARTIAL Full    or    partial    dentures    are    artificial,    constructed    of    plastic,    metal,    and/or porcelain.   The   problems   of   wearing   these   include   looseness,   soreness,   and possible   breakage.   Some   patients   are   extra   sensitive   and   may   have   problems wearing   dentures   altogether.   The   final   opportunity   to   make   changes   in   your new   dentures   (including   shape,   fit,   size,   placement,   and   colour)   will   be   the "teeth   in   wax"   try-in   visit.   Most   dentures   do   normally   require   relining   months after   initial   placement.   The   cost   for   this   procedure   is   not   included   in   the   initial denture fabrication/insertion fee.        6.   ENDODONTIC   TREATMENT   (ROOT   CANAL   TREATMENT   -   RCT)   & POST/CORE The   purpose   of   this   procedure   is   to   retain   teeth   that   may   otherwise   have   to   be extracted.   RCT   has   a   very   high   success   rate,   but   there   is   no   guarantee   that   it will   save   your   tooth.         Complications   can   occur   during/from   the   treatment, including   but   not   limited   to   calcification,   unique   curvature,   perforation,   fracture, tooth/instrument      breakage,      infection,      which      may      require      additional treatment(s),   like   extraction,   re-treatment,   apicectomy,   etc.   (Refer   Paragraph #2).   Occasionally   objects   (Posts/Pins/Crowns)   are   cemented   in/on   the   tooth or   extend   through   the   root,   which   does   not   necessarily   affect   the   success   of the   treatment.   These   are   not   included   in   the   initial   RCT   fee.   Once   treatment   is begun,   it   is   absolutely   necessary   that   RCT   must   be   completed.   It   may   involve one or several appointments.     7. PERIODONTAL LOSS (TISSUE & BONE) / PYORRHOEA This    condition    causing    gum    and    bone    infection    can    lead    to    tooth    loss. Alternative    treatment    plans    include    gum    surgery,    replacements    and/or extractions.   Any    additional    dental    procedures    may    have    a    future    adverse effect on your periodontal condition.   8. NO TREATMENT, INCOMPLETE TREATMENT You   have   been   explained   all   treatment   options   including   the   option   of   no treatment.   The   consequences   of   no   treatment   or   partial/incomplete   treatment have   also   been   explained   to   you.         Any   complications,   dental   or   medical, arising   out   of   no   treatment,   incomplete/partial   dental   treatment   are   your   own responsibility. 9. CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL Natural   calamities,   political   uncertainties,   prolonged   electricity   failures   or   any other    circumstances    beyond    our    control,    before    or    during        your    dental treatment   may   delay   or   hamper   the   scheduled   treatment   protocol. Any   delays or   complications   arising   out   of   non-delivery/incomplete/partial   delivery   of   your scheduled    dental    care        for    reasons    beyond    our    control    is    your    own responsibility.
