Special Medical Situations at the Dentist
Dr. Kurtzman's dental office is equipped to handle patients with special medical situations at the dentist. Some medical conditions make it dangerous for patients to be treated in a traditional dental office setting. In cases where an increase in stress and anxiety aggravates a medical condition special care is required. If the attempts at treatment can cause harm to the patient or dentist, special treatment is likewise indicated.
Conditions requiring special care include:
- Serious heart disease
- Adrenal insufficiency
- Developmental disabilities
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Brain Stem Injuries
- Dangerous reactions to local anesthetics
In these cases it is often necessary to use Oral Sedation to control anxiety and stress or General Anesthesia in the Hospital operating Room to make treatment possible.
