  • Exposure of a tooth
  • Removal of labial frenum (frenectomy)
  • Aid to root canal therapy

This leaflet can be a useful tool for patients considering surgical treatment as the benefits, risks and limitations of surgery are discussed in detail. The possible complications of surgery are listed on page 4 to assist the informed-consent process.

Mi-tec publishes 8 patient education pamphlets for The Australian And New Zealand Association Of Oral And Maxillofacial Surgeons (ANZAOMS). The objective of each pamphlet is to assist oral and maxillofacial surgeons with their informed consent process, reduce the medico-legal risk of failure to inform and improve patient outcomes. The pamphlets serve as valuable resources for surgeons in establishing a process of communication with patients.
