INFORMED CONSENT FOR CROWN AND BRIDGE PROSTHETICS

Consent For Crown And Bridge Prosthetic
I UNDERSTAND that treatment of dental conditions requiring CROWNS and/or FIXED BRIDGE WORK includes certain risks and possible unsuccessful results, with even the possibility of failure. I agree to assume those risks, possible unsuccessful results and/or failure associated with, but not limited to the following; (even though care and diligence are exercised in the treatment of conditions requiring crowns and bridgework and fabrication of same, there are no promises or guarantees of anticipated results or the longevity of the treatment).
  1. Reduction of the tooth structure: In order to replace decayed or otherwise traumatized teeth, it is necessary to modify the existing tooth or teeth so that crowns (caps) and/or bridges may be placed upon them. Tooth preparation will be done as conservatively as practical. In preparation of teeth, anesthetics are usually needed. At times there may be swelling, jaw muscle tenderness or even a resultant of the tongue, lips, teeth, jaws and/or facial tissues which is usually temporary, or very rarely, permanent.
  2. Sensitivity of teeth: Often, after the preparation of teeth or the reception of either crowns or bridges, the teeth may exhibit sensitivity. It may be mild to severe. This sensitivity may last only for a short period of time or may last for much longer periods. If it is persistent, notify us in as soon as possible, as this sensitivity may be from some other source.
  3. Crowned or bridge abutment teeth may require root canal treatment: Teeth, after being crowned, may develop a condition known as pulpitis or pulpal degeneration. The tooth or teeth may have been traumatized from an accident, deep decay, extensive preparation, or other causes. It is often necessary to do root canal treatments in these teeth. If teeth remain too sensitive for long periods of time following crowning, root canal treatment may be necessary. Infrequently, the tooth (teeth) may abscess or otherwise not heal which may require root canal treatment, root surgery, or possibly extraction.
  4. Breakage: Crowns and bridges may possibly chip or break. Many factors could contribute to this situation such as chewing excessively hard materials, changes in biting forces, traumatic blows to the mouth, etc. Unobservable cracks may develop in crowns from these causes but the crowns/bridges may not actually break until chewing soft foods or possibly for no apparent reason. Breakage or chipping seldom occurs due to defective materials or construction unless it occurs soon after placement.
  5. Uncomfortable or strange feeling: This may occur because of the differences between natural teeth and artificial replacements. Most patients usually become accustomed to this feeling in time. In limited situations, muscle soreness or tenderness of the jaw joints (TMJ) may persist for indeterminate periods of time following placement of the prosthesis.
  6. Esthetics or appearance Patients will be given the opportunity to observe the appearance of crowns or bridges in place prior to final cementation.
  7. Longevity of crowns and bridges: There are many variables that determine “how long” crowns and bridges can be expected to last. Among these are some of the factors mentioned in the preceding paragraphs. Additionally, general health, good oral hygiene, regular dental checkups, diet, etc., can affect longevity. Because of this, no guarantees can be made or assumed to be made.
  8. It is a patient’s responsibility to seek attention from the dentist should any undue or unexpected problems occur. The patient must diligently follow any and all instructions, including the scheduling and attending all appointments. Failure to keep the cementation appointment can result in the ultimate failure of the crown/bridge to fit properly and an additional fee may be assessed.
INFORMED CONSENT: I have been given the opportunity to ask any questions regarding the nature and purpose of crown and/or bridge treatment and have received answers to my satisfaction. I voluntarily assume any and all possible risks including those as listed above and including risk of substantial harm, if any, which may be associated with any phase of the treatment in hopes of obtaining the desired results, which may or may not be achieved. No guarantees or promises have been made to me concerning the results. The fee(s) for service have been explained to me and are satisfactory. By signing this document, I am freely giving my consent to allow and authorize my Doctor to render any treatment necessary and/or advisable to my dental condition(s), including administering and prescribing all anesthetics and/or medication, making of photographs and radiographs, and any treatment deemed needed.

I went to Stroud dental on monday for the first time in 13 years..... I was so afraid to go. The experience was amazing. They made me feel comfortable. Jess is very good at her job and gentle. I didnt feel embarrassed or shamed at all. They made sure I got my x Ray's up to date and informed me, my old x Ray's had baby teeth in them. Very good team! Happy I went in and faced my fears.

We highly recommend Stroud Dental!

My husband is terrified of going to the dentist and after convincing him to go to Stroud Dental for the first time he has now been 3 times! The staff is absolutely amazing and made him feel safe and comfortable! He actually looks forward to going to the dentist now. Dr. Peleg rocks and the girls are a hoot. We highly recommend Stroud Dental!
