Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep Apnea TreatmentSleep apnea affects millions of people around the world. While many people think of sleep apnea as a condition that causes loud snoring, it can be far more serious. If you have sleep apnea, our expert in sleep apnea treatment in Westlake Village can help.

Symptoms of sleep apnea can include:

•    Loud snoring
•    Choking or gasping while asleep
•    Waking with a dry mouth or sore throat
•    Waking with a headache
•    Waking frequently throughout the night
•    Daytime sleepiness or fatigue
•    Falling asleep unintentionally
•    Irritability or anxiety

These symptoms can be associated with numerous other health issues, so it is important that you discuss your concerns with our Westlake Village sleep apnea treatment expert. Tests can help you identify the cause of your symptoms, and if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can recommend several treatment options.

Sleep Apnea Treatment Westlake Village

Sleep apnea is generally caused by the obstruction of the breathing passages. Patients can stop breathing hundreds of times a night, which prevents them from falling into a deep, restful sleep. It can increase their risk of developing other serious health problems, and it can even interfere with their partners’ sleep.

In many cases, patients have lifestyle factors that can be interfering with their sleep. Excess weight, tobacco use, excessive alcohol use and certain medications can all worsen sleep apnea symptoms. Addressing these issues often results in decreased episodes. However, sleep apnea may still need further medical treatment, particularly for those with cardiovascular disease who may be at an increased risk of severe complications.

Our expert in sleep apnea treatment in Westlake Village can use specially made oral appliances that move the jaw forward to open the airway. The appliances are comfortable and easy to use, and many patients prefer them over the bulkier, noisier CPAP machines.

Each patient is different, which means that treatment recommendations can vary widely. Our Westlake Village sleep apnea treatment expert will work with you to identify the source of your sleep difficulties and create a treatment plan that helps you get a better night’s sleep with fewer interruptions.
