DENTAL SLEEP MEDICINE / CRANIOFACIAL PAIN
Sleep Apnea is a condition that affects 1 out of every 12 Americans and the dentist should be the first place you book an appointment for diagnosing and treating sleep apnea. Dr. Farshid Ariz, DMD is a part of our team at Northridge Dental Group and is expertly proficient at diagnosing and treating sleep apnea with non-surgical treatment. A good night’s sleep is essential for optimal performance at work and school. Sleep apnea, unfortunately, makes it impossible to get a good night’s sleep and the consequences of that go beyond feeling tired; sleep apnea can lead to mood disorders and heart disease.
In addition to treating sleep apnea, our team of highly-trained and experienced doctors can also treat craniofacial pain. Craniofacial pain can be characterized by headaches, migraines, or other types of pain that ultimately diminish your quality of life. In many cases, craniofacial pain is caused by a TMJ disorder or a related condition. At Northridge Dental Group, we can diagnose and treat TMJ conditions to subside or eliminate the symptoms so that they no longer prevent you from living your best life.
