The potential risks and complications of the planned procedure and the resulting treatment have been
discussed in depth, especially the possibility of:
General Side Effects/Complications:
After the procedure, pain may persist. Generally, it will wear off within a few hours after the
procedure. Bleeding or prolonged hemorrhaging are very rare but can occur, especially in patients
with hemorrhagic diatheses. Existing allergies or sensitivity (for example, from the anesthetic,
disinfectant, latex) may lead to transient swelling, itching, sneezing, skin rash, dizziness or other
related reactions. Severe complications affecting vital functions (heart circulation, respiration,
kidneys) or permanent damage (for example, organ failure or paralysis) are extremely rare.
Specific Side Effects/ Complications:
 Root damage due to proximity of the mini-screws
 Soft tissue injury during placement
 Fracture, loosening or premature loss of mini-screw
 Inflammation of the soft and hard tissues surrounding the mini-crew
 Individual risks:
Post-operative Care Instructions:
 For 24 hours after the procedure, please refrain from smoking, drinking alcohol or exercising
 Do not eat while the area is still numb
 It is very important to include the area surrounding the mini-screw into your daily oral
hygiene routine according to the instructions received from your doctor. In the first days
following the insertion, the application of a disinfecting agent (mouth rise) may be required.
Regular recall of appointments will be necessary as part of the post-operative care.
 Please immediately contact your doctor if you experience one of the following symptoms:
continuous hemorrhaging, severe swelling, throbbing pain or other later discomfort at the
insertion site.
