We Treat Brentwood Los Angeles Sleep Apnea Patients
At the dental office of William D. Harrison, DDS we help sleep apnea patients reduce snoring and enjoy a restful night’s sleep. With the use of a comfortable and compact oral device, our Brentwood, Los Angeles sleep apnea dentists help you find effective and affordable solutions to the health complications caused by sleep apnea.
Why Treat Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea produces problematic symptoms for patients, such as loud snoring, fatigue, and restless sleep. These problems can lead to much greater health issues, including increased likelihood for heart disease and obesity.
Patients with sleep apnea start and stop breathing many times throughout the night, causing them to choke and startle themselves out of deep sleep repeatedly; sleep apnea is treatable, however. Seeking sleep apnea therapy is essential for restoring quality of life and improving overall wellness.
Sleep Apnea Therapy in Brentwood
Patients may be surprised to learn that dentists are capable of effectively caring for sleep apnea sufferers through the use of an oral appliance, which looks similar to a retainer or mouth guard. While a sleep apnea patient's air passages close off and prevent them from breathing normally while asleep, our oral appliance holds the jaw in a comfortable position that keeps air passages clear and facilitates easy breathing.
If you are concerned that you may have sleep apnea, it’s important to contact your primary physician for an official diagnosis of your condition. Once a diagnosis has been made, our Brentwood dentists are here to help you with comfortable sleep apnea therapy.
How Do I Get My Sleep Apnea Mouth Guard?
The first step in the sleep apnea treatment process involves taking impressions of your smile and bite alignment; this initial step is a quick visit to our office —usually only 15 minutes. Once your impressions are complete, the molds will be sent to a professional dental lab so that your appliance can be created to fit comfortably.
This plastic device for sleep apnea treatment is affordable, and prevents the need for conventional treatment, like the bulky CPAP machine. You won’t have to work with any other specialists for complete care; we facilitate all parts of the appliance creation process.
We welcome you into our Brentwood dental office to see how we can help you overcome troubling sleep apnea symptoms. Our oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea is an affordable and convenient way to reduce the effects of your sleep disorder.
