Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a condition that makes it hard for the body and brain to get the oxygen they need during sleep at night. OSA can interrupt your sleep, waking you from restful sleep and leaving you tired the next day. At Sterling Plaza Dentistry, Tom Alexander, DDS, we evaluate individuals and families in Irvine, California, and the Orange County area for this condition. We can work with you or a family member to develop an effective treatment plan for obstructive sleep apnea.
Like other medical conditions, obstructive sleep apnea can present in a variety of ways. Some of the most typical symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include the following:
If you have any of the symptoms above, reach out to us, your local dentist, who can talk with you to see if you need a comprehensive evaluation. This is a condition that should be treated to improve your overall health and quality of life.
If you feel you may need treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, there are a variety of ways that a dentist can help you. First, Dr. Alexander will thoroughly evaluate your symptoms and examine your oral and physical situation to figure out exactly how sleep apnea may be impacting your quality of life. Dr Alexander and his team are able to help set up at-home sleep testing for patients and work with Medical doctors to diagnose the best course of treatment.
Once your treatment has been agreed upon, our team will work with you to customize an oral appliance that is recommended for you. Oral appliances aim to help keep your airway open. It is similar to a mouthguard or a retainer, but you will wear it at night when you sleep. These work to mechanically help open the airway allowing better night breathing. A CPAP machine may be recommended for severe cases.
