Charleston SC Sedation Dentists

Do you need a Charleston SC sedation dentist? Modern dentistry uses techniques and practices that make getting dental work done much more comfortable than ever before, but there are still millions of Americans who avoid going to the dentist due to dental anxiety or who are unable to tolerate traditional dental care for a variety of reasons.

Fortunately, sleep and sedation dentistry is an excellent alternative for patients who can’t get the dental care they need through traditional dentistry. There are only a few dentists in the southeast who have the qualifications to practice true sleep and sedation dentistry. Dr. David Kurtzman has the advanced training needed and devotes his practice to serving special needs dental patients through sleep and sedation dentistry.

Hospital Sleep Dentist

Dr. Kurtzman is an experienced and skilled hospital sleep dentist. He and his caring team are committed to ensuring that each patient has a safe, comfortable dental experience free of pain and anxiety. The appropriate level of sedation varies depending on the needs of each patient. Conscious sedation is achieved by intravenous sedatives that are monitored and adjusted to ensure patient comfort. The patient is very relaxed and drowsy. Depending on the level of conscious sedation, the patient may fall asleep during the procedure and most have no memory of it upon awakening.

For patients who need unconscious sedation under general anesthesia, Dr. Kurtzman uses a surgical suite equipped for dentistry at a nearby hospital. An anesthesiologist administers the anesthesia and surgical nurses assist with the procedure.

Hospital Dental Care

For difficult to treat patients such as those who are developmentally or physically disabled, hospital dental care is the safe, humane, pain free dental care alternative. South Carolina sleep and sedation dentistry is not just for patients with dental anxiety. It is an excellent alternative for patients who need extensive dental work that would normally require numerous appointments to complete. With sleep and sedation dentistry, the work can be completed in one or two appointments.

Children are also good candidates for sleep and sedation dentistry as is anyone who cannot remain still long enough to safely complete their dental treatment. Patients who are allergic to novocaine or who do not get numb from Novocain and patients with a servere gag reflex can benefit from sleep and sedation dentistry.

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.
