Dental phobia is a very real condition that goes beyond finding dental visits inconvenient. It causes many to avoid dental care altogether, which is a huge mistake. Dental care is vital to healthy living, and we accommodate patients who suffer from dental phobia. We not only offer special care, we introduce a new way to think about dental care. Our goal is to make every patient comfortable, and we are proud to say that we have helped many people overcome their fear of dental care.

At our dental practice, we are proud to offer treatment for sleep apnea. This sleep disorder can cause a person to stop breathing for short periods of time during sleep, leading to fragmentation of sleep and daytime fatigue. In some cases, sleep apnea can also lead to more serious health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Our team of experts is dedicated to helping patients get the treatment they need to get a good night’s sleep. We offer a variety of options for treating sleep apnea, and we will work with you to find the best option for your individual needs.
There are several ways to treat sleep apnea, including dental nightguards and airway therapy. Dental nightguards are worn during sleep and help to keep the airway open. Airway therapy uses a mask that is worn during sleep and helps to deliver air to the lungs. These treatments can help to improve sleep quality and reduce the risk of health problems associated with sleep apnea. Our experienced professionals will assess your current condition and create an appropriate treatment plan.
Garfield Dental Group is committed to providing high-quality dental care to all patients, regardless of their circumstances. We understand that some patients may have special needs that require special accommodations, and we are more than happy to provide them.
