ratio between filling and extraction that government stated

2003 were 1:5,9. Informed consent was given to patients
before the actions, consisted the diagnoses, procedures, the
medical purpose, alternative actions, risks, possible
complications and prognoses.
In Indonesia, there were not the rules yet that regulated the
informed consent before dental extraction. The law of
Indonesian Medical Practices No. 29/2004 has described the
responsibilities to do the informed consent for the actions that

rehabilitative. So, a dental extraction which is the teurapeutic
prosedured needs the informed consent. After all, the informed
