Sleep Apnea

Snoring is often used as a punchline on TV, but for those who snore or the people who love them, this late night noise may not be as funny. Snoring can keep you from getting the sleep you need, and it may be a symptom of a more serious problem called sleep apnea. If you or someone you love snores, it may be time to talk to our Los Angeles sleep apnea dentist.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects millions of Americans of all ages. Although it is most common in older overweight men, it can occur in women, children, and people of all shapes and sizes. Sleep apnea occurs when breathing stops briefly during sleep. This causes blood oxygen levels to drop, which puts strain on the cardiovascular system. When the brain becomes starved for oxygen, it rouses briefly and just long enough to restart breathing. Sleep apnea puts strain on your cardiovascular system and deprives your body of much-needed sleep. Our expert in sleep apnea in Los Angeles can help you determine why you have sleep apnea and find the treatment that helps you manage your symptoms.

Most people with sleep apnea have obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when the tissues around the throat collapse during sleep. This can happen when the throat is narrow, the tongue is large, or when there are excess tissues around the airway. Oral appliances can be helpful for these patients. Oral appliances work by moving the position of the lower jaw. By moving the jaw forward, the airway is gently widened, and this prevents it from collapsing. The airway stays open while you sleep, and you have fewer apnea episodes. Our Los Angeles sleep apneadentist custom-fits the oral appliance to ensure optimal relief. Oral appliances are easy to use and comfortable to wear, and most patients adapt quickly. They are highly effective, and they can be used alone or with other treatments to achieve maximum relief from symptoms.

If you have sleep apnea, an oral appliance can be a great option for you. Without treatment, patients with sleep apnea may be more likely to suffer long-term complications, which can include weight gain, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and heart attack. Call us today to schedule your appointment with our expert in sleep apnea in Los Angeles.

A+ Experience

The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
