Suffering From Sleep Apnea In Los Feliz?

If you cannot sleep thru the night, come see us at Inspired Smiles

If you cannot sleep at night and find yourself waking up gasping for air, choking, have dry or sore throat, and morning headaches, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. This is a threatening condition, because it means you actually stop breathing momentarily several times during the course of the night. Snoring is one of the common indicators that you might have sleep apnea. The snoring phenomenon, while trying to sleep, is typically caused by relaxed throat muscles, allowing the tongue to obstruct the airway. This means that you are not getting enough air to your brain and heart while you sleep. Overtime, this malady can lead to high blood pressure, heart failure or stroke. At Inspired Smiles in Los Feliz, Dr. George Hanna is compelled by the threat of sleep apnea to discover the cause of this disorder in his patients, so he can make the necessary corrections in their sleeping habits. He knows that inadequate breathing patterns must be eliminated in order to protect his patients. Sometimes, sleep apnea can be positional based on sleeping positions. Sometimes it is genetic, caused by a brain injury, or influenced by life style habits. No matter the cause, Dr. George Hanna will find it and make a factual determination based on the evidence. Then he will devise a treatment plan to help you sleep and be fully oxygenated while doing so. For more information on sleep apnea, make an appointment and come to see Dr. George Hanna. Do not ignore the symptoms of sleep apnea, because the consequence can be dangerous.

Sleep Apnea Is More Common Than Most People Know

The cause of your sleep apnea will dictate the treatment approach to be used

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Do you toss, turn and tumble? Do you constantly snore and waking up at night with a dry mouth or sore throat? If so, visiting with Dr. George Hanna at Inspired Smiles in Los Feliz will be time well spent. He will arrange for you to have a sleep study test to see what is happening and how it can be treated. As mentioned earlier, this is a serious condition. If left untreated, the body will be robbed of oxygen during the night due to a lack of respiratory effort. Many serious medical conditions are associated with sleep apnea from heart disease to diabetes and even depression. If you or one of your family members is experiencing inadequate sleep, come see Dr. George Hanna at Inspired Smiles in Los Feliz for evaluation and consultation. A simple solution for sleep apnea is a dental appliance that is placed in the mouth to keep throat tissues and the tongue from obstructing the airway. This helps keep the body oxygenated and the respiratory effort at a normal level. Another device that can help with more serious cases of sleep apnea is the C-PAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine that continually pushes oxygen into the lungs. This medical device is very effective but requires the patient to utilize a mask, which some patients cannot do. Whichever device is recommend by Dr. George Hanna, your inability to get enough oxygen for vital organ systems will become a thing of the past. Do not hesitate, call today and schedule a consultation with Dr. George Hanna.

"Sleep Apnea Can be Cured!"

"Sleep Apnea Can be Cured!"

At Inspired Smiles in Los Feliz, we will successfully treat any sleep disorder that you have, so that sleepless nights will no longer be an issue

“I can help you be free of sleep apnea. As always, it is important to understand the causes of your sleep apnea. From there, specific treatment protocols and devices can be successfully applied to the cure. Obstructive sleep apnea is the usual culprit for causing sleepless nights. Obstruction takes place when your tongue hinders your airflow while you are trying to sleep. Central nervous system sleep apnea, however, is a more serious problem. It takes place when the respiratory center of your brain stops sending constant signals to the lungs to maintain a normal respiratory rate. This results in a lack of oxygen to the heart, which can cause an arrhythmia or irregular heart beat. Some irregular heartbeats can be life threatening. However, no matter the cause of your sleep apnea, I am here to make sure that your airway stays open and that your flow of oxygen is high enough to protect you from harm."
