Charlotte NC Sedation Dentists

If you have been unable to find a skilled Charlotte NC sedation dentist, we have good news for you. Sleep and sedation dentistry is now available for Charlotte patients who were previously unable to get traditional dental care. Dr. David Kurtzman, DDS, and his compassionate staff offer a complete range of sleep and sedation dentistry to patients throughout the southeast.

Sleep and sedation dentistry is a highly specialized type of dentistry in which the dentist uses an appropriate level of sedation to provide the patient with a comfortable, pain and anxiety free dental care experience.

Hospital Sleep Dentist

Many dentists advertise “sedation dentistry”, but only a very few hospital sleep dentists like Dr. Kurtzman who have received extensive training in advanced sedation techniques can offer a full range of sedation options from mild conscious sedation to full unconscious sedation.

Mild sedation is achieved through oral sedatives that relax the patient and reduce the level of anxiety many patients feel. Intravenous sedation provides a deeper and more controlled level of sedation. Dr. Kurtzman can control the amount of sedative delivered to the patient and keep the patient at an even level of sedation for the duration of the procedure.

Both IV and oral sedation are conscious sedation. The patient is in a relaxed, drowsy state, but can respond to questions. Some patients are so relaxed that they doze off during the procedure, but they are never unconscious. Dr. Kurtzman usually treats patients under conscious sedation in his modern dental office.

Hospital Dental Care

Dr. Kurtzman uses a specially equipped surgical suite at a hospital for hospital dental care under general anesthesia. Fully unconscious sedation using general anesthesia is the deepest level of sedation

There are many different types of special needs patients who can benefit from sleep and sedation dentistry. These include patients with mild to severe dental anxiety, severe gag reflex, or who need extensive dental treatment. Any patient who has trouble keeping still during dental care is an excellent candidate for sleep and sedation dentistry including small children, patients with developmental or physical disabilities, or patients with illnesses like Parkinson’s or Muscular Dystrophy.

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
