If You Suffer from Sleep Apnea, Find Relief With An FDA-Approved Oral Appliance

Sleep apnea afflicts more than one in five adults, though 90% don’t even know they have it, despite its main symptom being loud snoring. As many as 92% of middle-aged men and 83% of middle-aged women may have a moderate to severe case of this life-threatening disorder that has been undiagnosed. Sleep apnea not only interferes with your own sound sleep, but can keep your partner awake.

Other signs can include:

  • Insomnia.
  • Frequent need to urinate during the night.
  • Obesity and inability to lose weight.
  • Migraine headaches in the morning.
  • Waking with a “choking” sensation, “cotton mouth,” or a sore throat.
  • Inability to concentrate and poor memory.
  • Drowsiness during the day.
  • Depression, anxiety, or irritability.
  • Reduced reaction time.

 

Sleep apnea can also be a factor in the risk for diabetes, weight gain, high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, Alzheimer’s disease, erectile dysfunction, and lowered sex drive. It impairs driving ability and is a major cause of car accidents.

An apnea is a “pause” for one or more breaths, lasting as long as 90 seconds or these may occur as many as 100 times an hour, depriving the body of the oxygen needed to regenerate cells. There are two types of sleep apnea and some people have both:

1) Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is most common and is due to a physical block of the airway. The lung muscles work properly, but the blockage is due to a large tongue or increased soft tissue in the upper throat that has collapsed when the throat muscles relax during sleep.

2) Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) is due to lack of respiratory effort when the brain fails to transmit proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.

The body’s reaction to both types is to get more oxygen by partially waking up and gasping for air. The sufferer goes back to sleep briefly, unaware of what happened.

The conventional medical treatment is wearing a device called a CPAP with a mask, which would require you to lie on your back all night and is not easily tolerated by most patients.

Fortunately, Wilshire Smile Studio has experts who can provide you with a much more comfortable and less expensive alternative. Every sufferer can benefit from a dental appliance that is a custom-made, FDA-approved type of treatment which helps keep the jaw in a position to prevent apneas. This is usually covered by Medicare and insurance plans. If minor surgery is required for OSA, it can be performed by our oral surgeon.

Client Testimonials

I recently got dental implants and I've never felt more confident than ever. I was very hesitant to get them at first since I wasn`t sure about how much they would cost. So I decided to get a consultation, I first went to a different dental office in Westwood but they weren`t very accommodating to my needs. Then with my second try, I found Wilshire Smile Studio. They helped me with everything-they explained the process to me, how many treatments I`m going to need and how much my insurance will cover. Top patient care, I`m one satisfied customer.

A few weeks ago when I was out to dinner with a few friends, I felt a slight pain on the left side of my jaw when I chewing. I didn’t think much of it until the pain started getting really bad. I looked on Yelp and decided to go with Wilshire Smile Studio due to their wonderful reviews. When I called in I explained that I was in pain and wanted to be seen as soon as possible. They were very accommodating and was able to get me in at my convenience. Dr. Torsky was very nice and professional. He found a cavity on one of my tooth and was able to fill it. The whole process took less than 20 mins and I am extremely happy with the results. I am glad I used Wilshire Smile Studio and I will be back again if I need any dentistry work.

I recently came into Wilshire Smile Studio for my cleaning. I had been referred to them by a mutual friend. Its been a while since I’ve had my teeth cleaned and I figured if I don’t do it now I would probably delay it for another few years! Gabi, the lady at the front desk help me schedule an appointment fairly easily. When I got there, their facility was nice and clean. Looks like they have all modern equipment. Dr. Shabou, my hygienist was very nice and made the process very easy. Overall I am very pleased with the results I got after my cleaning. I can actually feel that my teeth are cleaner. Maybe its because I haven’t clean them in many years. Haha. I highly recommend Wilshire smile studio!

It’s always a pleasure to come down here and visit (Dr. Yashari and the team)! I call them my friends because not only are they professional but they are so nice and welcoming in my every visit. I come here for my routine cleaning and boy can I say it’s always a job well done! I don’t know how else to show my gratitude to Dr. Yashari and the employees but to simply write a wonderful review. I want to show viewers that this dental office is no where near the past dentists I’ve come across because this place can be trusted. Trusted by means of payment, procedures, and teaching from the dentists. They only prescribe you the things needed and the payment is manageable. Thanks Dr. Yashari! You deserve these 5 stars!

My treatment at Wilshire Smile Studio consisted of teeth cleaning & whitening and two implants. The process was quick and painless. The dental hygienist who cleaned my teeth took enough time to explain the procedures and complete my case to my satisfaction. My teeth are stain free. I also learned how I can take care of my gums better to avoid bleeding gums. I would also like to thank the dental assistants, Cris and Gladys, who helped with the teeth whitening. This office has the nicest staff, they do smile all the time. The specialist called me in the evening, after the procedure, to check on me. They text you as a reminder for appointments which is very cool. The office is very comfortable. They called in my pharmacy for my prescription as well.

This is one of the nicest dental offices I’ve been to. It’s clean, beautiful, super nice staff and very efficient. I am very happy with the quality of care I have gotten in Wilshire Smile Studio. I see the hygienist every three months and my gums feel so good. I am not sure how a dental office can be more pleasant. Everything is always explained to me very thoroughly. A few times that I had billing issues, Charlyn was very helpful. They take pictures of the problem areas on big screen TV, it’s very cool and educational. I have referred all my friends and co-workers to this office and everyone is very happy. I can’t imagine going to another dental office for dental care.
