ORAL CONSCIOUS (MINIMAL or MODERATE ORAL) SEDATION ("OCS")
INFORMED CONSENT FORM
The purpose of this document is to provide an opportunity for patients to understand and give permission for oral conscious (minimal or moderate oral) sedation ("OCS") when provided along with dental treatment. Each item should be initialed after the patient has the opportunity for discussion and questions.
1. I understand that the purpose of OCS is to more comfortably receive necessary care. OCS is not required to provide the necessary dental care. I understand that OCS has limitaions and risks and absolute success cannot be guaranteed. (See #4 options.)
2. I understand that OCS is a drug-induced state of reduced awareness and decreased ability to respond. OCS is not sleep. I will be able to respond during the procedure. My ability to respond normally returns when the effects of the sedative wear off.
3. I understand that my OCS will be achieved by the following route:
Oral Administration: I will take a sedative(s) approximately
minutes before (and possibly again during) my appointment. The sedation will last approximately
4. I understand that the alternatives to OCS are:
a. No sedation: The necessary procedure is performed under local anesthetic with the patient fully aware.
b. Nitrous oxide sedation: Commonly called laughing gas, nitrous oxide provides relaxation but the patient is still generally aware of surrounding activities. Its effects can be reversed in five minutes with oxygen.
c. Anxiolysis (or minimal) sedation: A pharmacologically induced state of consciousness where an individual is awake but has decreased anxiety to facilitate coping skills, retaining interactive ability.
d. Oral conscious (minimal or moderate oral) sedation: Sedation via pill form that will put me in minimally to moderately depressed level of consciousness.
e. Intravenous (I.V.) conscious () sedation: The doctor could inject the sedative in a tube connected to a vein in my arm to put me in a minimally to moderately depressed level of consciousness.
f. General anesthesia: Also called deep sedation, a patient under general anesthetic has no awareness and must have their breathing temporarily supported. General anesthesia is more appropriate for longer procedures lasting 3 or more hours.
5. I understand that there are risks or limitations to all procedures. For sedation these include:
(oral sedation) Inadequate sedation with initial dosage may require the patient to undergo the procedure without full sedation or delay the procedure for another time. Likewise, in compliance with state regulations, an additional dose or doses may be required to complete the procedure.
Atypical reaction to sedative drugs that may require emergency medical attention and/or hospitalization such as altered mental states, physical reactions, allergic reactions, and other sicknesses.
Inability to discuss treatment options with the doctor should circumstance requires a change in treatment plan.
6. If, during the procedure, a change in treatment is required, including abandoning the original treatment plan if medically/professionally necessary, I authorize the doctor and the operative team to make whatever change they deem in their professional judgment is necessary. I understand that I have the right to designate the individual who will make such a decision.
7. I have had the opportunity to discuss OCS and have my questions answered by qualified personnel including the doctor. I also understand that I must follow all the recommended treatments and instructions of my doctor.
8. I understand that I must notify the doctor if I am pregnant, or if I am lactating. I must notify the doctor if I have sensitivity to any medication, of my present mental and physical condition, if I have recently consumed alcohol, and if I am presently on psychiatric mood altering drugs or other medications.
9. I will not be able to drive or operate machinery while taking oral sedatives for 24 hours after my procedure. I understand I will need to have arrangements for someone to drive me to and from my dental appointment while taking oral sedatives.
I hereby consent to OCS in conjuction with my dental care.

Date of Birth
I hereby authorize
and whomever he/she designate as his/her assistants, to perform upon me the following operation and/or procedures:
I request and authorize him/her to do whatever he/she deems advisable if any unforeseen condition arises in the course of these designated operations and/or procedures calling, in their judgment, for procedures in addition to or different from those now contemplated.
I consent to the above treatment after having been advised of the risks, advantages and disadvantages of the treatments and the consequences if this treatment were withheld.
I consent to the above treatment plan after having been advised of the alternate plans of treatment available and the known material risks, advantages and disadvantages of the alternative treatment.
I further consent to the administration of local or general anesthesia, antibiotics, analgesics, nitrous oxide or any other drugs that may be deemed necessary in my case, and understand that there is a slight element of risk inherent in the administration of any drug or anesthesia. This risk includes adverse drug response (e.g., allergic reactions), cardiac arrest, and aspiration, and thrombophlebitis (e.g. irritation and swelling of a vein), pain, discoloration and injury to blood vessels and nerves which may be caused by injections of any medications or drugs.
I am informed and fully understand that inherent in any type of surgery are certain unavoidable complications. In oral surgery, the most common of these complications include post-operative bleeding, swelling or bruising, discomfort, stiff jaws, loss or loosening of dental restorations. Less common complications can include infection, loss or injury to adjacent teeth and soft tissues, nerve disturbances (e.g., numbness in mouth and lip tissues), jaw fractures, sinus exposure and swallowing or aspiration of teeth and restorations, and small root fragments remaining in the jaw which might require extensive surgery for removal.
I realize that in spite of the possible complications and risks, my contemplated surgery/treatment is necessary and desired by me. I am aware that the practice of dentistry and surgery is not an exact science and I acknowledge that no guarantees have been made to me concerning the results of the operation or procedure.
I have provided as accurate and complete a medical and personal history as possible including those antibiotics, drugs, medications and food to which I am allergic. I will follow any and all instructions as explained and directed to me and permit prescribed diagnostic procedures.
I have had the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers to and responsive explanations for, all questions about my medical condition, contemplated and alternative treatment and procedures, and the risk and potential complications of the contemplated and alternative treatments and procedures, prior to signing this form.
