Georgia Dentist for Medical Conditions that Require Sedation Dentistry
When you need a Georgia dentist for medical conditions that require sedation dentistry, call Dr. Kurtzman, the Georgia dentist who specializes in sleep and sedation dentistry. For patients with certain medical conditions, being seen in a dental office is extremely difficult. For others, it is virtually impossible. Medical conditions that make it difficult or impossible to been seen in a dental office include the following:
- Severe heart conditions
- Physical injury or deformity including chronic pain or brain stem injury
- Developmental Disability
Developmental disabilities that make it difficult or impossible to be seen in a dental office include autism, cerebral palsy, Fragile X Syndrome, moderate to severe retardation, seizure disorders, Down’s Syndrome and others. For these patients, receiving dental treatment in a dental office may even be dangerous to their health. Unfortunately, for some patients, the very same medical condition that makes it difficult or impossible to be seen in a dental office makes them more predisposed to certain dental problems.
Experienced Sleep Dentist
Dr. David Kurtzman is one of the few elite Atlanta sleep dentists. He has worked hard to create a practice that provides personalized, pain free dental care for patients who have medical conditions that make it difficult or impossible to be seen in a traditional dental office. His office is specially equipped to handle patients with special medical conditions. However, for some patients with severe medical conditions, it is safer to provide dental treatment in a hospital setting. He treats this special group of patients in specially equipped operating rooms in Wellstar Windy Hill and Kennestone Hospitals under general anesthesia.
General anesthesia is administered by trained anesthesiologists. To ensure patients’ safety, their breathing and vital signs are monitored for the entire time that they are unconscious, and their specific medical conditions are monitored closely.
Whether he treats them in his office or a hospital operating room, Dr. Kurtzman provides patients with medical conditions with the extra care that they need and deserve. Dr. Kurtzman has the patience, the experience, the expertise and the resources to provide patients with medical conditions 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 with medical conditions that will forever change the way they feel about visiting the dentist.
