The Effect of Consent Form on Anxiety in Oral Surgery


In our study, it was aimed to investigate the psychological and physiological effects of the medical information in the consent forms prepared for the impacted third molar tooth extraction on the patients.

This study was carried out on a total of 100 patients, 50 women and 50 men. The patients do not have any physiological or psychological diseases. The patients were selected from those who had not had impacted third molars removed before. The Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Modified Dental Anxiety Scale (MDAS) were used to determine the anxiety scores of the patients; blood pressure, oxygen saturation and pulse values were measured to determine vital values.
All patients, before and after reading the consent forms; MDAS and VAS scales were directed twice and vital values of the patients were measured. According to the answers given by the patients to the scales and their vital signs, the effect of the information in the consent forms on the patient's anxiety was evaluated.
Results: As a result, when informed consent is given adequately and clearly; It is seen that the anxiety scores of the patients decreased significantly and their vital signs became stable.
Conclusions: The patient's reading of the detailed consent form before the operation provides a safer environment for both the patient and the doctor.
