South Carolina Sedation Dentists
Sleep and sedation dentistry is a specialized type of dentistry practiced only by a few select South Carolina sedation dentists who have received advanced training in sedation techniques. Most dental patients can comfortably have routine dental care and most dental procedures performed with standard anesthesia such as novocaine. However, some South Carolina special needs patients cannot tolerate a dental procedure with just standard anesthesia.
In many cases, these special needs patients simply forgo dental care and their oral health suffers unless they can find a dentist who practices sleep and sedation dentistry. Dr. David Kurtzman, DDS has been serving the southeastern states by providing top quality painless dentistry for almost 30 years. Dr. Kurtzman’s practice specializes in sleep and sedation dentistry and he has helped thousands of special needs patients throughout the southeast get the dental care they need.
Hospital Sleep Dentistry
In hospital sleep dentistry and sedation dentistry, there are varying levels of sedation used depending on the needs of the patient. These range from full unconscious sedation using general anesthesia to a mild, drowsy sedation. Dr. Kurtzman performs all dental procedures that require full unconscious sedation at a hospital in a specially equipped operating room with the assistance of a trained anesthesiologist and surgical nurses.
Sleep and sedation dentistry provides an opportunity for many patients to get much needed dental care comfortably. These patients include developmentally and physically disabled patients, patients with mild to severe dental anxiety, and patients who have allergic reactions to traditional analgesics.
