Georgia Dentist for Patients with Complex Dental Care Needs
When you need a Georgia dentist for patients with complex dental care needs, call Dr. Kurtzman. Sedation dentistry can really benefit patients who require longer dental procedures or a combination of dental procedures. One of the advantages of sedation dentistry is that it enables patients to have a series of procedures performed in one day that would normally require several visits to the dentist.
Many patients who fear the dentist avoid the dentist and put off needed dental treatment. This can lead to serious dental problems such as decaying teeth, gum disease, impacted teeth and tooth loss. Fixing these more serious problems often requires multiple procedures and a lot of time. For these patients, sedation dentistry is a great solution.
Experienced Dental Care for Difficult Cases
Dr. Kurtzman specializes in providing Atlanta dental care for diffucult cases. He uses oral sedation and Nitrous Oxide “laughing gas” to sedate patients for dental procedures performed in his office. Patients who require really long procedures or a deeper level of sedation may be sedated using intravenous medications administered in a specially equipped operating room at Wellstar Windy Hill or Kennestone Hospitals. In a hospital setting, Dr. Kurtzman is assisted by surgical nurses as well as a trained anesthesiologist.
Using sedation dentistry, Dr. Kurtzman can many times fix a patient’s entire mouth in one day. This may include performing root canals, filling cavities in decayed teeth, fitting crowns, placing dental implants and more. The length of time required for treatment is determined by the number of procedures required and the number of teeth being restored. Most patients return home the same day as their treatment.
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 requiring longer procedures that will forever change the way they feel about visiting the dentist and will hopefully prevent them from avoiding the dentist in the future.
If you or a patient in your practice requires a longer dental procedure please contact our Dentist for Patients with Complex Dental Care Needs at David Kurtzman, DDS today to get more information about sleep/sedation dentistry. We look forward to hearing from you.
