If you suffer from sleep apnea, you probably know how difficult it is to get a good night’s sleep.
The lack of sleep not only drains your energy and leaves you feeling tired, but sleep apnea can also prevent your partner from getting a restful sleep. Dr. Greg Rubin, who operates a cutting edge sleep apnea treatment facility in Calabasas, California, can help you get control of the sleep disorder.
There are two main types of sleep apnea: Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common form which occurs when the throat muscles relax; and Central sleep apnea, where the brain fails to send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.
If left untreated, sleep apnea can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.
There are several treatments available such as weight loss or using a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) sleep machine which delivers air pressure through a mask while you sleep. The air pressure helps keep your upper airway passages open, preventing apnea and snoring.
Other machines can be used for treatment such as an Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) machine or oral devices. There are nearly 200 different oral appliances that can be used to treat Obstructive sleep apnea and studies suggest that 2/3 of sleep apnea cases can be treated with dental devices, which help increase the airways in the throat by re positioning the lower jaw.
That’s where Dr. Greg Rubin’s expertise and personal experience comes in.
Dr. Greg Rubin uses several new oral dental appliances to treat patients who have Obstructive sleep apnea.
Dr. Rubin and his team of dental experts and specialists will help find the oral device that will fit your needs. They will also fabricate, fit the device and make any necessary adjustments at his Calabasas Dental Institute office so you can finally get some shut eye.
