Georgia Dentist Who Treats Patients with Physical Injuries
If you need a Georgia dentist who treats patients with physical injuries, you have come to the right place! Physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain and brain stem injuries can make it uncomfortable, painful or even impossible for patients to sit in a dentist’s chair, even for short periods of time. This makes it difficult or even impossible for these patients to receive dental care in a traditional dental office setting.
Patients with brain stem injuries have difficulty with movements, swallowing, breathing and performing other functions controlled by the brain stem. For these patients, receiving complex dental work in a dental office may even be dangerous for them as well as the dentist providing the treatment.
Many traditional dental offices are simply not equipped to handle patients with physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries. Most dentists do not have the time or resources required to provide care for these hard to treat patients.
We offer the high quality comprehensive dental care previously available in a dental office only to able bodied and minded inviduals to “Special Needs” clients and their families in the safety and security of the hospital operating room. Our care extends from the oral care and dental care structure of the families and caregivers.
Dental Care & Physical Injuries
Dr. Kurtzman has worked hard to create a practice that provides safe, effective, pain free Atlanta dental care for patients with physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries. Our office is specially equipped to handle patients with some types of physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries. However, for many patients with these problems, 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.
In a hospital operating room, patients with physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries are either sedated or placed under general anesthesia by a trained anesthesiologist. Their heart rate, breathing and vital signs are closely monitored for the entire time they are receiving treatment. This enables Dr. Kurtzman to ensure patients’ safety while providing effective and pain free dental treatment.
David Kurtzman, DDS accepts referrals for patients with physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain, or brain stem injuries from other dental practices. Patients travel from as far as South Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama to be treated by a dentist with Dr. Kurtzman’s level of expertise. By sending these patients to Dr. Kurtzman, dentists can best meet the needs of “hard to treat” patients and free up their time to treat the patients they serve best. This also removes the liabilities that these special care patients tend to bring with them from their practices. Once these patients are effectively treated, they are sent back to their referring dentist for recall and recare.
If you or a patient in your practice suffers from physical injuries or deformities, chronic pain or brain stem injuries and is in need of sleep/sedation dental care, please contact our Dentists Who Treats Patients with Physical Injuries at David Kurtzman, DDS today to schedule a consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.
