Sleep Apnea Dentist Los Angeles

Sleep Apnea Dentist Los AngelesOur Los Angeles sleep apnea dentist is committed to providing you with the personalized dental care you need in a comfortable, relaxed environment. We offer extensive treatment solutions that include treatments for sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is most closely identified with snoring but may have other symptoms as well. While not all snoring is associated with this common sleep disorder, extremely loud snoring or snoring that is interrupted by pauses in breathing or choking and gasping may indicate the presence of obstructive sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea occurs when the airways become obstructed and breathing is interrupted. This can occur hundreds of times during sleep, and the patient may not even be aware of it. Unfortunately, these breathing pauses prevent patients from slipping into deeper stages of sleep and can leave them feeling sleepy, irritable and fatigued during the daytime. If our sleep apnea dentist in Los Angeles suspects sleep apnea, we may recommend further testing, particularly if you have other symptoms of sleep apnea, including:

  • Dry mouth and throat
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Morning headaches
  • Irritability
  • An inability to concentrate
  • Increased blood pressure

Los Angeles Sleep Apnea Dentist

Sleep apnea treatments can include lifestyle changes, oral appliances and other adjustments. Our Los Angeles sleep apnea dentist will make customized recommendations based on your symptoms, the possible causes of your sleep apnea and your needs. Our goal is to alleviate your symptoms and enable you to get a better night’s sleep. We may recommend:

  • Adjusting any medications you are taking that could be worsening your symptoms
  • Avoiding alcohol and tobacco, which can exacerbate symptoms
  • Losing weight if necessary
  • Exercising, which can improve muscle tone in the throat and across the body
  • Oral appliances, which maintain the proper jaw position to promote more comfortable breathing

In some cases, a CPAP machine, or machine that maintains positive airflow during sleep, or surgery to remove excess throat tissue may be recommended if more conservative measures fail or if there is an abnormality causing the apnea. Contact us today to learn more or to schedule your sleep apnea consultation with our sleep apnea dentist in Los Angeles.
