If you suffer from sleep apnea, it is likely that the condition is having a negative impact upon your health, your work, and your personal life. The ongoing pauses in breathing over your hours of sleep leave a person feeling dull and tired. Many people are unaware that they suffer from sleep apnea unless they share a bed with a partner, who is often awakened by the snoring, coughs, and snorts as the breath starts and stops, which can occur many times every hour.

Treatments for Sleep Apnea

If you suspect you have sleep apnea, your first step is a full examination to determine the correct treatment for the condition. Sleep breathing masks that push air into the airways were once the standard treatment, but are uncomfortable and unwieldy.

Dental Devices to Resolve Sleep Apnea

Dental devices are now available to treat sleep apnea, and are far more gentle, easy to wear, comfortable, and can resolve the condition without the need for invasive surgery. In some cases, surgery may be necessary for cases in which the lower jaw is misaligned. At our practice, we seek out the most effective, non-invasive treatments for sleep apnea. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, contact our Pasadena dentist today.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Due to the increased health concerns regarding COVID-19, we are now scheduling Virtual Consultations.

The virtual consultation can help answer questions, provide guidance and help ease your mind. This is an area recently approved by the American Dental Association. During this process you become a patient of our dental practice by filling out new patient forms. This process is to familiarize the doctor with your Medical and Dental history which will be reviewed before your virtual appointment. The insurance portion will be used for billing purposes.

Depending on your needs you can schedule for one of the two types of consultation

Consultations:

1. Limited Visual Consultation: Limited to one tooth or one area of concern. (10minutes)

2. General Visual Consultation: Answers to your questions to more than one area of concern. (20 minutes)

What we need from you prior to your Consultation time:

1. X-rays that you have from previous dentists up to five years old.

2. Pictures of the area taken by your smart phone from different angles. Take as many from different views as possible. Including pictures of your smile and bite. We have found using your flash on your phone and focusing will help.
