Proper sleep apnea treatment can provide dramatic relief from symptoms and help patients enjoy a better night of sleep. Dr. Bijan Afar, Los Angeles sleep apnea doctor, offers evaluations, resources and treatments that can help patients manage their symptoms and reduce their risks. Proper treatment can include both lifestyle changes and the use of a sleep apnea mouthpiece.
Snore guards are customized for each patient. This allows them to better meet each patient's needs. They can keep the lower jaw in the proper position, which helps keep the airways open, and they can stabilize soft tissues to prevent them from collapsing into the airways. Both of these actions can prevent the incidence of sleep apnea and obstructed breathing.
Along with chronic daytime sleepiness, headaches and irritation, people with sleep apnea who are chronically sleep deprived may also be more likely to have motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents and difficulty performing basic tasks. They may also be more prone to high blood pressure, obesity, depression, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. This makes sleep apnea more than just an irritation; it is a potentially deadly sleep disorder.
