Treatment of Sleep Apnea

Treatment of Sleep ApneaTreatment of sleep apnea is critical to symptom management. Because sleep can be interrupted hundreds of times a night, sleep apnea sufferers often find it impossible to get a good night’s sleep. They may also suffer from an increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and other health problems due to inadequate blood oxygen levels. Our Los Angeles center can offer you the treatment you need to restore healthy sleep patterns and enjoy a healthier night’s sleep.

The goals for treatment of sleep apnea are to relieve symptoms and restore proper breathing patterns during sleep. Treatment can often not just relieve the noticeable symptoms, such as loud snoring and frequent waking, but can also reduce medical problems that may be worsened by sleep apnea. Our Los Angeles sleep apnea expert can help you explore your treatment options.

A multi-pronged approach may be necessary for proper treatment of sleep apnea. Alcohol and certain medications, such as antihistamines, may make it more likely that your airways will collapse, so you may need to avoid them. If you are overweight or obese, weight loss may offer significant relief. Because smoking can be a major risk factor for sleep apnea, we may recommend that you cut back or quit to ease your symptoms.

Oral appliances are often appropriate for patients with mild or moderate sleep apnea. Our Los Angeles dentist can customize a mouthpiece that will adjust your jaw to keep the airways open as you sleep. Periodic adjustments may be necessary, and we may recommend follow-up care to ensure continued relief. Some patients may also benefit from CPAP therapy. CPAP uses continuous positive airflow to keep the airways open and ease breathing during sleep.

Because the repercussions of sleep apnea can be serious, treatment is critical. We will perform a careful evaluation of you and your medical history, and we will discuss your symptoms to develop the most appropriate treatment. If you have symptoms of sleep apnea and would like to learn more about the treatment of sleep apnea, we can help. Contact our sleep apnea dentist in Los Angeles to schedule your consultation.
