Knoxville TN Sedation Dentists

Is a Knoxville TN sedation dentist right for you? Sleep and sedation dentistry is a special dentistry practice area that only a few dentists have the training, skills, and experience to perform. Dr. David Kurtzman, DDS is one of the leading dentists in the southeast offering sleep and sedation dentistry to Knoxville dental patients.

Several levels of sedation are available for patients who are uncomfortable with traditional dental procedures and for special needs patients who cannot safely be treated in a traditional dental office.

Hospital Sleep Dentistry

Hospital sleep dentistry is the ideal solution for many patients including:

  • Patients with dental phobia; moderate to extreme anxiety about dental care;
  • Patients with developmental disabilities;
  • Patients with physical disabilities;
  • Patients with medical conditions that preclude them from traveling to the dentist’s office or sitting comfortably in the dental chair,
  • Patients who are allergic to novocaine, or who do not get numb with novacaine;
  • Patients who need extensive, lengthy dental procedures;

Hospital Dental Care

Dr. Kurtzman and his staff practice hospital dental care tailored to each case with the appropriate level of sedation for a painless, anxiety free dentistry experience. Some patients have an excellent experience with conscious, intravenous sedation. They are drowsy and often fall asleep during the procedure, but they are conscious and can be awakened and respond to questions. This level of sedation is heavier than nitrous oxide (laughing gas), but lighter than full unconscious sedation.

Other patients will have a better outcome under general anesthesia. In these full sedation cases, Dr. Kurtzman performs the dental procedure in a hospital surgical suite specifically equipped for dentistry. A qualified anesthesiologist administers the anesthesia and monitors the patient during the procedure.

In every case, the caring staff at Dr. Kurtman’s sleep and sedation dental practice are committed to providing the highest quality dental care that is pain free and anxiety free. Sleep and sedation dentistry by Dr. Kurtzman is a safe and effective solution for Tennesse patients with dental phobias and other difficult to treat patients. Call Dr. Kurtzman’s sleep and sedation dentistry practice to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kurtman to learn more about comfortable sleep and sedation dental care.

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
