What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly, and you feel tired even after a full night’s sleep.

The main types of sleep apnea are:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea, the more common form that occurs when throat muscles relax.
  • Central sleep apnea, which occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.
  • Complex sleep apnea syndrome, also known as treatment-emergent central sleep apnea, occurs when someone has both obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.
 

If you think you might have any form of sleep apnea, contact San Mateo Dental Arts Dentist Dr. Sheena Phan today. Treatment can ease your symptoms and may help prevent heart problems and other complications.

Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health.

About Oral Appliance Therapy

Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway. Research shows that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

If you and your doctor decide that oral appliance therapy is the best treatment option for you, then your San Mateo Dentist Dr. Phan will create a custom-made oral appliance. San Mateo Sleep Apnea Specialist Dr. Phan will recommend the oral appliance that is best for you. Oral appliance therapy is covered by many medical insurance plans.

Sheena is a skilled, efficient dentist with state of the art equipment and employs friendly front office staff and gentle-on-the-mouth hygenists. I drive 40 minutes from Saratoga to see them and it is well worth the commute.

Needed an appointment for a cracked filling and Dr. Phan was very accommodating to open her office to see me during the shelter in place. She and her staff have always been very helpful and do a great job not just for emergencies but with regular dental check ups. Thank you!
