Georgia Dental Care for Patients Allergic to Anesthetics

Dr. Kurtzman provides safe, comfortable Georgia dental care for patients allergic to anesthetics. Lidocaine, Novacaine, Articaine and Prilocaine are local anesthetics that are used by dentists for patients receiving dental treatment. They are injected directly onto the site where the patient is receiving dental treatment to numb the area. This enables the patients to stay conscious during dental treatment without feeling pain and helps patients who suffer from severe dental anxiety or severe gag reflex. However, a small percentage of the population is allergic to these medications or has a dangerous reaction to them.

Patients who are allergic to local anesthetics such as Lidocaine, Novacaine, Articaine and Prilocaine may experience nuisance symptoms such as rashes or more dangerous symptoms such as passing out or the inability to breath. For these patients, dentistry can be dangerous and even life threatening!

Dentist Anesthetic Allergies

Dr. Kurtzman is the Atlanta dentist for patients with anesthetic allergies. If you are one of the patients in this small population, you know how dangerous receiving dental treatment can be. You may have even avoided going to the dentist in the past due to the fear associated with receiving complex dental work without local anesthesia. Fortunately, there is no need to avoid the dentist any longer!

Dr. Kurtzman treats patients who are allergic to local anesthesia in specially equipped operating rooms at Wellstar Windy Hill and Kennestone hospitals under general anesthesia. Patients are placed under general anesthesia by a trained anesthesiologist and are monitored for the entire time that they are unconscious.

Using general anesthesia in a hospital seeting enables Dr. Kurtzman to safely and painlessly provide these special care patients with the dental treatment that they want and need. Dr. Kurtzman and his staff personally make sure that each patient is completely at ease before, during and after any dental procedure. We strive to create a great experience for patients who are allergic to local anesthetics that will forever change the way they feel about visiting the dentist.

If you are allergic to local anesthesia, you do not have to endure pain while receiving dental treatment. Instead, contact our Dental Care for Patients Allergic to Anesthetics Experts at David Kurtzman, DDS today to find out more information about sleep/sedation dentistry. We look forward to hearing from you.

Dr. Kurtzman was professional and friendly as he and his staff always are. He explained everything clearly and provided steps for me to follow through. I have been seeing Dr. K for over 20 years and would not go to anyone else.

They work with you to find an appointment time that’s convenient. They send timely reminders. You’re welcomed and any needs are met. Dr. Kurtzman explain what the plan/procedure is for the appointment. He explains what he’s doing and answers questions. He discusses next steps or followup. He never makes you feel you’re asking dumb questions or rushing him. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Having recently moved to Marietta we were most concerned about leaving our medical professionals behind. Dr. Kurtzman and his team quickly allayed all our concerns. From simple cleaning to complex implant procedures they made it all seem effortless. Loved the atmosphere of the office and the people were truly cheerful and friendly and skillful.

I came to see Dr. K to fix a filling done by another provider. The filling had caused pain ever since it was done eight months prior and the other provider was unable to figure out why even after two follow-up visits. Dr. K determined that the filling was loose and replaced it. The replacement process was almost spa-like thanks to the relaxing gas and deft skills of Dr. K. Now, this filling fits perfectly and I can chew on that side of my mouth for the first time in eight months. Thank You, Dr. K!

I have been a patient of Dr. David Kurtzman for years, even before he opened his current office in Kennesaw. He and his dental hygienists provide professional and friendly service. Dr. Kurtzman is the best!

Great dentist and oral hygenist Laurie. Visits are almost fun. Have been going to Dr K for over 30 yrs. Where one dentist told him many years ago it was not worth trying to save my teeth Dr K ignored, worked with me, and I still have my teeth.

Hello all, Zanifer's family are all pleased with the care and results of her last visit. I am even more happy to receive confirmation that we are doing a very good job in maintaining her oral hygiene. My wife, even with her medical condition acknowledges the kindness from each of you. Thanks again and a Very Happy Mothers day to all the Mommy's. Kris
