We offer all levels of sedation in our clinic to relax even the most nervous patients, from young children to the elderly, Dr. Tung is one of a few dentists in Calgary with general anesthetic privileges at the Riverview Surgical Center. We offer three types of sedation dentistry:
Oral Sedation - This is a simple, safe option for people who are anxious about dental appointments and involves various sedatives that are given to the patient for oral intake. Patients may sleep or doze off during the appointment but they are conscious and responsive.
Nitrous Oxide – Commonly known as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is inhaled, making the patient more relaxed and free from anxiety during their appointment.
General Anesthetics for Children - Dr. Tung has special privileges to a general anesthetic surgical suite at the Riverview Surgical Center where he can perform many dental procedures under general anesthetics for our young patients.
