Montgomery AL Sedation Dentists
Is a Montgomery AL sleep and sedation dentist right for you? Sleep and sedation dentistry is a specialized area of dentistry that provides a painless, anxiety free, comfortable dentistry experience to millions of Americans who cannot tolerate traditional dental care and those who desire the most comfortable dental care possible. Patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety, severe gag reflexes, and special needs patients are just a few of the many patients whose oral and overall health is compromised by a lack of dental care.
Dr. David Kurtzman is one of the few dentists serving the Alabama and the Montgomery area who practices sleep and sedation dentistry. He uses intravenous sedatives to sedate the patient to the appropriate level which varies depending on the needs of each patient. For patients who are comfortable with moderate, conscious sedation, the patient is put in a very relaxed, drowsy state and maintained at that level throughout the procedure. The patient can communicate if needed, but most patients are so comfortable that they sleep through the dental procedure.
Hospital Sleep Dentist
Hospital sleep dentistry is safe, comfortable, and stress free. From start to finish, Dr. Kurtzman and his staff are committed to providing the most pleasant, painless, anxiety free dental care possible. They want every patient’s sleep and sedation dentistry experience to change the way they think about dental care.
Patients who need deeper sedation are fully sedated with general anesthesia by a qualified anesthesiologist. Dr. Kurtzman completes the dental work while the anesthesiologist monitors the patient. Dr. Kurtzman uses a hospital operating room with special dental equipment for full sedation procedures.
Hospital Dental Care
There are many people who can benefit from hospital dental care. It is a safe and humane way to provide dental care to special needs patients that most dentists consider to be “difficult” patients. Young children who cannot sit still long enough for traditional dental care are also excellent candidates for sleep and sedation dentistry.
Many Americans suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia that is so severe that they avoid all dental care, placing their oral and overall health at risk. These patients can comfortably get the dental care they need through sleep and sedation dentistry. If you or someone you care for are a candidate for sleep and sedation dentistry, call today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kurtzman.
