4.4.3 Complication Rates (Table 4-31) Complication after restoration: A single treatment complication following restoration placement was noted for one adult at one site from among 29 eligible restorations evaluated in the audited records. None of the 25 eligible restorations among children were associated with any complication. Complication after extraction: No complications following extractions were recorded from among 30 eligible extractions in adults and 7 eligible extractions in children evaluated in the audited records.
