Fearful woman surrounded by dental instruments | Elgin IL DentistIf you have dental anxiety or phobia, you are not alone.  Dr.Sung can help you stay relaxed and comfortable during your dental appointment whether it is a simple teeth cleaning or an extensive treatment such as oral surgery or implant dentistry.



There are various forms of sedation our Elgin office can offer

  • Local Anesthesia - Unless declined by patients, Dr.Sung always uses local anesthesia to numb your teeth or gums to give more comfort during every dental procedure.Child in dental chair with sedation dentistry | Elgin IL Dentist
  • Nitrous Oxide - This is an inhaled form of sedation, also known as “laughing gas”, which is administered throughout your dental treatment to keep you calm and relaxed.  Dr.Sung can control the amount of sedation and its effects last only for the duration of your dental appointment.  
  • Oral Conscious Sedation - Dr.Sung can prescribe oral sedatives such as Halcion, Valium or Ativan to create a very comfortable dental experience for patients with dental anxiety or a severe gag reflex. The pill is usually taken about an hour before the procedure.
