I understand that there are risks and complications associated with the administration of medications, including anesthesia, and performance of the Recommended Treatment. These potential risks and complications, include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Drug reactions and side effects.
- Damage to adjacent teeth or tooth restorations.
- The necessity for root canal therapy is due to injury of the pulp tissue.
- Breakage or dislodgement in buildup failure of restorative material.
- The necessity for a more extensive restoration, such as a crown, than originally diagnosed, due to additional decay or unsupported tooth structure found during preparation.
- Inability to exactly match tooth coloration.
- Changes in the shade of the composite restoration over time as a result of the oral environment.
- Sensitivity of teeth.
- As a result of the injection or use of anesthesia, there may be swelling, jaw muscle tenderness, or even resultant numbness of the tongue, lips, teeth, jaws, and/or facial tissues, which is typically temporary, but in rare instances, may be permanent.
