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. Please contact the Dental Care for Patients Unable to Get Numb Specialists at David Kurtzman, DDS today to schedule a consultation. 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
