Hospital Sleep Dentistry
Hosptital sleep dentistry is a comfortable, safe, and painless way for patients to receive dental care. Dental procedures are performed while the patient is in a sedated state that can range from a drowsy, sleep like state to full sedation. The level of sedation depends on the needs of the patient and the procedure performed.
Dr. Kurtzman performs dental procedures under general anesthesia in specially equipped surgical suites in a hospital. The anesthesia is administered by a qualified anesthesiologist and Dr. Kurtzman is assisted by surgical nurses. The patient is fully sedated and feels no pain or discomfort during the procedure.
Hospital Dental Care
Hospital dental care is the best solution for many patients. For others, dental procedures can also be performed while the patient is under milder, conscious sedation in Dr. Kurtzman’s modern dental office. These patients are very relaxed and drowsy and often fall asleep during the procedure. Again, the patient feels no pain or discomfort and usually does not remember the procedure.
