Once the initial treatment has been completed successfully or the first recall session has been completed, the patient can be motivated for more long-term cooperation. The treatment provider could offer a warranty for the durability of the treatment result achieved, a warranty, however, that could be invoked only if the patient him- or herself does everything to perpetuate the favourable status quo:
Now that the initial treatment has been completed successfully and a stable state has been achieved, you might ask yourself what you need to observe while living with dental implants. First of all, it may be useful to re-read the section entitled “Life with Implants” of the Informed Consent form you signed before treatment. You thus already know about the importance of regular check-ups, recall sessions and possibly corrections performed by qualified dentists. We would like to invite you to appear for these regular appointments, and we would also like to give you an idea of the cost of these appointments. At the same time, we would like to offer you a warranty, based on regular and positive patient cooperation, which will help you ensure the preservation of the treatment result achieved so far.
24.5 Dentist’s Warranty Offer
The dentist offers the patient a seven-year/unlimited comprehensive warranty of the durability of the treatment result obtained with regard to the implants and prosthodontic work in the region of tooth …………………. (work covered by the warranty), provided the patient shows, in the event that he or she makes any claims under this warranty, that he or she has appeared for at least two annual recall appointments (more if required and if so ordered by the dentist) with a BOI-certified dentist.
I hereby give my dentist’s office permission to remind me of impending recall appointments. The extent of the examination and any diagnostic or therapeutic measures will be determined by the dentist at the recall session. The seal of any certified BOI dentist (see sample overleaf) serves as proof that the respective recall session was completed.
I agree to be invoiced according to the following staggered price list published by the European Academic Society for Implantology (EASI e.V.) (valid as per 4 February 2004):
