Huntington Beach Dentist Treats Snoring and Sleep Apnea for Improved Patient Wellness
November 19, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsNovember 19, 2014 - Huntington Beach, CA – Dr. Dang, a family and cosmetic dentist, treats patients suffering from sleep apnea and chronic snoring with a comfortable oral device.
Titi Dang, DMD, is a Huntington Beach dentist who is helping patients with disruptive sleep patterns attain better quality of sleep and overall wellness with help from a custom-made oral device.
Chronic snoring and sleep apnea are health problems that can have a significant, negative impact on total health. People who snore experience blocked or restricted airways while they sleep, cutting off air intake for several seconds (or even minutes) at a time. Those with sleep apnea may wake themselves out of a deep sleep repeatedly throughout the night as they struggle for breath. For those suffering from snoring and sleep apnea, these conditions (at minimum) mean excessive sleepiness and inability to focus from lack of quality sleep; at maximum, these sleep disorders can mean high blood pressure and elevated risk for other serious health conditions.
Dr. Dang explains, "As a dentist, there are other ways I can help my patients feel healthier that don't involve teeth cleanings. Many patients may not know this, but dentists can help treat sleep apnea by prescribing a special appliance that looks like a mouth guard and helps them to breathe more easily while sleeping."
For patients in her community who are suffering from sleep disorders, Dr. Dang recommends the use of a night guard; she uses the trusted Silent Night brand snore guards. This oral appliance is set of clear trays that are custom-made for each patient and are worn during sleep, like a retainer or other dental device. They hold your jaw at a comfortable angle, allowing free flow of air and uninterrupted sleep.
"The Silent Night snore guards have proven to be a popular choice for many of my patients, as they can effectively address snoring and sleep apnea symptoms without the bulk and hassle of more conventional treatments, like a CPAP machine. I love that I can help patients achieve better quality of life with a mouth guard that allows them to breathe more easily," Dr. Dang explained.
