Jacksonville FL Sedation Dentists
Are you looking for a Jacksonville FL sedation dentist? The sleep and sedation dental practice of Dr. David Kurtzman, DDS, offers dental patients a comfortable, painless and anxiety free way to get the dental care they need. Few Americans look forward to a visit to the dentist, but millions of Americans suffer from such severe dental anxiety or dental phobia that they avoid going to the dentist at all. Millions more have physical, emotional, or medical conditions that make it difficult or impossible to tolerate dental care in a traditional dental care setting.
Regular dental care is very important for not just oral health, but for overall health too. In addition, poor oral health can lead to lowered self esteem and decreased social interaction. If you are one of the millions of Americans who avoid dental care due to dental anxiety or any other reason, now you can get the dental care you need through sleep and sedation dentistry.
Hospital Sleep Dentist
Dr. Kurtzman serves the southeast by offering a complete range of modern hospital sleep dentistry and sedation dentistry. Getting the dental care you need has never been so comfortable! Dr. Kurtzman offers a range of sedation levels to fit the needs of each patient from conscious sedation to full sedation under general anesthesia. Whatever your needs, our caring staff is dedicated to making your dental treatment comfortable, painless, and free of anxiety.
Conscious sedation is administered in Dr. Kurtzman’s modern dental office. Using IV sedatives, the patient is put into a dreamy, sleep like state and feels no pain during the procedure. Novocain or other local anesthesia is also used, but it is given after the patient is sedated. The patient can respond to questions, but most patients drowse through the procedure and do not remember it afterwards.
Hospital Dental Care
For other patients, hospital dental care is more comfortable. Dental care is performed under full general anesthesia in a specially equipped surgical suite in a local hospital. A qualified anesthesiologist administers the anesthesia and monitors the patient while Dr. Kurtzman takes care of the patient’s dental care needs.
