Consent for Dental Implants

After a careful oral examination and study of my dental condition, Dr.______________ has advised me that my missing tooth/teeth may be replaced with artificial teeth supported by dental implants as follows:


Anesthesia: 1) __ Local Anesthetic, 2) __ Oral Sedation, 3) __ Conscious Sedation.

All risks/benefits and instructions pertaining to sedation and surgical complications appear on the “Surgical Consent” sheet. I have selected the above treatment and have read and understand all items pertaining to the “Surgical Consent” sheet.

  • In order to treat this condition, Dr._______has recommended that my treatment include dental implant(s) to be implanted into the jawbone. I understand that this surgical phase is followed by a prosthetic phase where artificial dentures, bridges or crowns are placed by the dentist/prosthodontist.
  • I understand that sedation may be utilized and that a local anesthetic will be administered to me as part of the treatment. My gum tissue will be opened to expose the bone, implants will be placed and the gum tissue will be sutured during the healing phase.
  • I understand that the healing phase of surgery varies from patient to patient and case to case, but typically last between 2-6 months. I understand that dentures or partial dentures that place pressure on the surgical site are to be avoided for 1-2 weeks following surgery.
  • I further understand that if during surgery the clinical situations turn out to be unfavorable for the implant, Dr. _____will make a professional judgment to manage this. This includes canceling the procedure, supplemental bone and soft tissue grafting to allow placement, gum closure and security of the dental implants. These procedures might be done in conjunction or separately from the implant placement.
  • I understand that some implants require second stage surgeries. Overlying tissues will be opened at the appropriate time and the stability of the implant will be verified. If the implant appears satisfactory, an attachment will be connected to the implant. The artificial crown fabrication may begin after healing of this soft tissue. I understand that I will be referred back to my dentist/prosthodontist to have this artificial crown/denture treatment.
  • Expected benefits: The purpose of dental implants is to allow me to have more functional artificial teeth and an improved appearance. The implants provide support, anchorage and retention for the artificial replacement.
  • Principal risks and complications: I understand that a small number of patients do not respond successfully to implant placement. In such cases, implants may have to be removed and replaced. Because each patient’s conditions are unique, long-term success may not occur. I understand that complications may result from the implant surgery, drugs or anesthetics.
  • There is no method that will accurately predict or evaluate how my gum and bone will heal. I understand that there may be a need for a revision procedure if the initial results are not satisfactory. In addition, the success of dental implant procedures can be affected by medical conditions, dietary and nutritional problems, smoking, alcohol consumption, clenching and grinding of teeth, inadequate oral hygiene and medications that I may be taking.
  • To my knowledge, I have reported to Dr.______any prior drug reactions, allergies, diseases, symptoms, habits or conditions which might in any way relate to this surgical procedure. I understand that my diligence in providing the personal daily care recommended by Dr. _____and taking all medications as prescribed are important to the ultimate success of the procedure.
  • Alternatives to suggested treatment: I understand that alternatives to dental implant surgery include: No treatment, removable appliances and other procedures depending on circumstances.
  • Necessary follow-up and self-care: I understand that it is important for me to continue regular visits to dentist. Implants, natural teeth and appliances must be maintained in a clean, hygienic manner. Implants and appliances should be examined by the dentist or Dr.______ periodically.
