  33. 34. 根管治疗知情同意书   请阅读以下同意书,若您同意下列内容,请在治疗开始前签字。 本人因诊断为 ­_____________, 同意授权 _________ 医生进行 ________ 的根管治疗(镍钛机动预备 / 手动预备,热牙胶充填 / 冷侧压充填)。同时我也同意上述医生在他 ( 她 ) 认为必要 ( 或按治疗计划认为必要 ) 的情况下照 X 线片,使用药物治疗、麻醉以及相关设备或处理措施。 本人已充分理解根管治疗是保留患牙的最佳治疗方法。完善的根管治疗较其它牙髓治疗难度大、费时,需要精良的器械和技术,费用也较高。根管治疗需要去除牙内感染的牙髓组织(含血管、神经),然后用充填材料封闭根管。根管治疗成功率较高。但少数患牙因牙齿本身的情况较复杂,也可能需要再处理、根尖周手术甚至被拔除;在治疗过程中,可能出现器械折断于根管内、根管壁侧穿或髓底穿以及牙体折裂。治疗之后,患牙通常需要以桩核或全冠修复来保护和恢复患牙功能,否则易发生牙体折裂。 根管治疗与麻醉的常见并发症包括:疼痛、肿胀、牙关紧闭、感染、出血以及唇、牙龈或舌的麻木,但麻木极少持续。 我已了解了根管治疗的情况 , 就诊医生已向我介绍了根管治疗(镍钛机动预备 / 手动预备,热牙胶充填 / 冷侧压充填等)具体步骤及相应特点。我的疑问也已从就诊医生处得到满意的回答。 本人同意医生采用 _____________________________ _______ 治疗方案,具体治疗费用约 ________ 元。 患者姓名: ____________ 时间: ____________ 患者签名(若患者为未成年人则由监护人代签): ____________ 主诊医生签名: ____________ 时间: ____________
