Diagnosis, Implant Removal:
After a careful oral examination, Dr’s Abron, Jose, or Miller has advised to me that my implant (s} needs to be removed.
In order to treat my condition, Dr’s Abron, Jose or Miller has recommended the removal of my dental implant (s). I understand that the procedure involves removing the implant (s) from the jaw bone or sinuses. I understand that a local anesthetic will be administered to me as part of the treatment and sedation may be utilized.
My gum tissue will be reflected to expose the bone. Implants will be removed from my jawbone. There is a potential risk of jaw bone fracture with this type of procedure. The soft tissue will be stitched closed over or around the surgical area. Healing will be allowed to proceed for a period of 4 to 6 months or possibly more.
I understand that during surgery, clinical conditions turn out to be unfavorable for the replacements of implants. Dr’s Abron, Jose or Miller will make a professional judgment on the management of the situation. The procedure may involve supplemental bone grafts or other types of grafts to build up the ridge of my jaw lo facilitate the replacement of the implants.
Alternatives to Suggested Treatment:
I understand that alternatives to this procedure include: no treatment. However continued wearing of ill-fitting appliances and or not treating recurring infections can result in further damage to the bone and soft tissue of the mouth.
Primary Risks and Complications:
I understand that a small number of patients do not respond successfully to surgery, and in such cases, the involved teeth may eventually be lost. Because each patient’s condition is unique, long-term success may not occur. I understand that complications may result from the surgery, drugs, and anesthetics. These complications include, but are not limited to:
– Bleeding, swelling and pain
– Allergic reactions
– Post-surgical infections
– Impact on speech
– Facial discoloration (bruise)
