Georgia Dental Care for Patients Unable to Get Numb
Dr. Kurtzman offers Georgia dental care for patients unable to get numb. There is a small population of people who are unable to achieve local anesthesia or “get numb” using local anesthetics such as Lidocaine, Novocaine, Articaine or Prilocaine. For these patients, local anesthesia does not work and they are able to feel everything that is being done to them in the dentist’s chair. This can be a very frightening and painful experience!
Patients who have been through the terrifying experience of being in a dentist’s chair and feeling all the pain associated with dental treatment often avoid the dentist for fear of the same experience happening again. Patients who are unable to get numb using local anesthesia or who are allergic to anesthestics cannot receive dental treatment in a dental office due to the pain and danger involved. These patients are best treated in a hospital operating room under general anesthesia administered by a trained anesthesiologist.
Dentist for Unable to Get Numb Patients
Dr. Kurtzman is the Atlanta dentist for unable to get numb patients. He treats patients who are unable to achieve local anesthesia in specially equipped operating rooms at Wellstar Windy Hill and Kennestone Hospitals. The patients are placed under general anesthesia by a trained anesthesiologist and monitored during the entire time that they are asleep. This enables these special care patients to receive the complex dental work they want and need without experiencing any pain.
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 cannot get numb that will forever change the way they feel about visiting the dentist. Our hope is that their positive experience will alleviate their fears and prevent them from avoiding the dentist in the future.
If you cannot get numb using local anesthesia or if you have a patient in your practice with this problem, sleep/sedation dentistry may a good solution.
