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.
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
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.

Been researching a place to get the Air-Flow teeth cleaning near Beverly Hills and found Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness.
This is the very first time i tried the air flow polishing method and found that it is 100% better and faster than traditional polishing.
My teeth felt smoother and appeared whiter. Sandra, my hygienist at the office did a fantastic job. By the way, the dental chair gives you a massage while you are getting your teeth cleaned.
The staff is super friendly. I highly recommend this place!
I don't even know where to begin. This is an exceptional dental office that utilizes methods and equipment in a holistic manner that one can't find anywhere else. From the beginning, Leeshane answered all of my questions and explained the procedure from start to finish. She really eased my fears about everything which pushed me to finally schedule an appointment that I had been putting off. Not only was she professional, but also personable. I felt her positive energy as soon as she answered the phone. It was like I had known her for years! Leeshane really went above and beyond for me. Contact her for any questions or to schedule an appointment. The dentists and staff do an excellent job. I highly recommend!
The office staff is extremely friendly and helpful, Dr. Kanter is very knowledgeable and personable. She did a 3D scan which identified problems areas that are impossible to detect with the standard X-ray. Very happy with my visit and will be returning to the office and following up with a review post-procedure.
