Rest easy with sleep apnea treatment in Beverly Hills, CA

Countless men and women in the Beverly Hills, CA area don’t get a good night’s sleep. Loud snoring disrupts the body’s nocturnal regenerative processes. It can also indicate a serious health disorder called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Effective treatment begins with a consultation at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills.

Understanding OSA

An episode of OSA triggers complex changes in your body, with long-term impact to cardiovascular health, emotional wellness, and more.

  • You take a few normal breaths and relax into sleep.
  • Tongue and soft tissues begin to collapse at the back of the throat.
  • Flow of air is constricted, causing tissues to vibrate. Snoring ensues.
  • Breathing becomes shallow or ceases entirely, for several seconds or minutes.
  • Oxygen levels drop dangerously, placing tremendous strain on the heart and lungs.
  • The brain senses danger, and sends a rush of adrenaline.
  • You jerk, choke, or snort into wakefulness.
  • The cycle repeats many times per hour.

Snoring and sleep apnea dental treatment

Historically, OSA was treated surgically, or with use of a CPAP machine and face mask worn at night. Unfortunately, CPAP compliance is low because treatment is sleep-invasive. A sleep apnea dentist takes an entirely different approach.

Dental sleep apnea treatment involves wearing a comfortable, custom-fit oral appliance. It is about the size of a retainer. It seats snugly over teeth, depressing the tongue, and holding the jaw slightly forward and open. The airway stays clear naturally for deep rest. The sleep apnea dental device is discreet, simple to insert, and easy to clean. The small carrying case slips into pocket, handbag, or briefcase for portability.

A recent study led by the University of Wisconsin indicates a triple mortality rate for those with untreated OSA. In the Beverly Hills, CA area, call Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills for a sleep apnea consultation. The number is (310) 692-7855.
