For a Restful Night’s Sleep!
If you suffer from loud snoring or sleep apnea, Las Vegas dentist Dr. Azimi can help!
Obstructed Sleep Apnea (OSA), is a potentially serious condition and one that Dr. Azimi has treated successfully for hundreds of patients here in Las Vegas. It is a condition in which the patient stops breathing during sleep, even for as long as two minutes. In severe cases, sleep apnea can occur up to one hundred times per hour.
Dr. Azimi explains that sleep apnea occurs when muscles and soft tissues around the airway relax and collapse while sleeping, thus creating a blockage in the airway. People with this condition often snore loudly and sleep restlessly resulting in a poor night’s sleep for them and their spouse. With that, the effects of OSA can contribute to increased risks associated with diabetes, stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure, brain injury and dementia.
With proper sleep apnea treatment provided by Dr. Azimi at his dental practice here in Las Vegas, these risks can return to normal levels. He will evaluate the severity of the condition, then create a custom dental appliance to be worn during sleep. The appliance is comfortable and has been proven effective in treating mild to moderate cases of OSA.
