Learn About Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea in Westlake Village is best treated if first understood

You may have heard of the term sleep apnea, but never really quite understood what it is all about. Sleep apnea in Westlake Village is a sleep disorder that disrupts your breathing patterns causing you to snore and other symptoms. The importance of treating sleep apnea comes from its ability to interrupt your breathing by making it very shallow or stopping it completely. These interruptions in your breathing patterns usually happen hundreds of times during the night, and last around 10 to 20 seconds. However, the good news is that our team at Westlake Village Dentist can help you stop your sleep apnea in its tracks by providing you with appliances and treatments to make sure you return to your natural, deep sleeping habits. If you are waking up with less energy during the day, daytime sleepiness, poor concentration and other symptoms, it is probably time to get yourself tested for sleep apnea. Don’t get caught in an emergency, let our team at Westlake Village Dentist help you feel refreshed, alert and focused in the morning by treating your snoring in Westlake Village.

Know If You Are at Risk

Here are some of the more common risk factors leading to sleep apnea in Westlake Village

“She sees the needs”

“What helps is to have a doctor like Dr. Looyzadeh that sees your teeth and sees the needs for improving your smile. You could go to another dentist and just have your procedures done, nothing done to the cosmetics of your teeth. She took an interest in my teeth and told me that she could do something for my smile. I always talked to a lot of people about it, especially at work, everybody knew me. The transition between the way I used to look and now, since it was very natural, very fast and quick, it’s almost like nobody ever knew. It’s almost like in the back of their minds, I’ve always had this smile, that’s how natural it is.”

Sleep apnea in Westlake Village can be something serious if not treated
