If you are suffering with sleep apnea, you should come in and visit us at Chu & Yang Dental. Our expert dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Josephine Yang, can provide you with help for your Irvine CA sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a very serious medical condition that can go on to cause other health problems for the individual who suffers with this problem. When a patient has Irvine CA sleep apnea, they actually stop breathing many times during the night. This will often cause them to abruptly wake up, catch their breath, and immediately fall asleep again. Generally, this occurs so quickly that the patient is not even aware that it is happening. Sometimes the patient can be heard gasping for air or snorting while they are sleeping. Patients with sleep apnea often wake up feeling exhausted even though they think that they have had a full night’s sleep. However, in truth, the patient’s sleep is continuously disrupted by the sleep apnea episodes. Our dentist is able to provide you with oral appliance therapy that will help you with snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Our dentist will be able to have you custom fit for an oral sleep appliance that will not only improve your sleep but it will also help to revitalize your health. Patients with sleep apnea can suffer with many other types of medical conditions including depression, high blood pressure, and many other serious medical problems. By wearing this sleep apnea device, you will be able to once again have a good night’s sleep. Your oral appliance will fit into your mouth much in the way a sports mouth guard would. It will keep your jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open airway while you sleep.
