State-of-the-Art Sleep Apnea Treatment in Moorpark, CA
Your Health & Well-Being Are Our Priority at Moorpark Center for Dentistry
Did you know that an estimated 25 million Americans live with sleep apnea, yet 80% of cases of moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea are undiagnosed? Our multispecialty dental practice sees patients for sleep apnea treatment in Moorpark CA, as well as throughout Ventura County.
Sleep apnea can cause serious or even life-threatening consequences – much more than simply a poor night’s rest. Complications from sleep apnea can include:
- Daytime fatigue
- Morning headaches
- Heart attack
- High blood pressure
- Heart problems
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Metabolic syndrome
What Causes Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disruption of the body’s ability to breath properly while sleeping, most often because the tongue slips back and blocks the airway. Patients with certain risk factors have an increased chance of developing sleep apnea, such as:
- Being overweight or having a thicker neck
- Males and post-menopausal women
- African Americans
- Older people
- A family history of sleep apnea
- Alcohol, sedative, and tranquilizer users
Sleep Apnea Is a Treatable Condition
At Moorpark Center for Dentistry, our experienced oral health team provides effective sleep apnea treatment. Although the CPAP machine is the most common treatment for sleep apnea, we offer custom-fitted dental sleep appliances as effective and comfortable alternatives to the cumbersome and noisy CPAP machine.
