From a young age, many of us have negative associations with dentist visits. We have images in our minds of uncomfortable chairs and stressful procedures. However, modern techniques allow patients to have almost any procedure in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Even root canals have little more than mild discomfort at most.

We use only the latest techniques and technology for all of our treatments and procedures. Whether you need a root canal or an extraction, you can count on having a safe, effective, and relaxed experience. As a top-tier endodontist in Beverly Hills, you can count on Dr. Maz to keep your smile healthy.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
In general, sedation dentistry refers to using anesthetic to ease your comfort during your treatment. You can have light sedation or heavier sedation, depending on your needs. During your initial appointment, you will have a chance to discuss what kind of sedation is best for you and your procedure.
