We’ll Help You With Your Sleep Disorder

A sleep apnea disorder is more than just an annoying problem of snoring too much. It can lead to serious health issues too. People who suffer from sleep apnea increase their risk for heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and more. If you recognize symptoms such as snoring, daytime sleepiness, dry mouth, headaches, and bouts of waking up gasping for air, you’ll need our help.

First, we’ll make sure you a diagnosed properly and send you out for a sleep test. Once your sleep apnea condition has been confirmed, we’ll fit you with a custom oral appliance. This offers benefits that you won’t find with CPAP machines:

  • Comfortable Fit – Your oral appliance will be custom designed just for you. It will gently shift your jaw forward, so your airways won’t close while you sleep. You’ll barely notice you have it on during the night!
  • Easier to Wear – Many patients find they can’t use a CPAP because it dries out their throat too much or keeps them awake. Our oral appliances are more comfortable and won’t require you to plug anything in during the night.
  • Portable – A CPAP machine is an awkward thing to pack, but a small oral appliance is easy to take with you. You won’t have to worry about plugs or anything else when you travel. Just pack your appliance and go!

If you are struggling with sleep apnea in Oakland, we can give you relief. If you’re a new patient, call 510-983-7444 for an appointment. Existing patients can call 510-240-7264. You can also request an appointment online. We’re open on Saturdays to fit in with your busy schedule!

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when you repeatedly stop breathing while sleeping. It is caused by your air passages becoming blocked by your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat. When they block your airway, you stop breathing for a few seconds before waking up briefly to take in more air. The sleep apnea cycle can repeat itself hundreds of times per night in severe sleep apnea sufferers.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Sleep apnea is harmful because it blocks your oxygen supply while you’re sleeping. This interferes with your sleep and leaves you feeling weak and tired the next day. Sleep apnea has also been linked to serious health concerns like heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression. Treating sleep apnea can improve your quality of life as well as your life expectancy.

Why does sleep apnea cause high blood pressure?

Sleep apnea increases your blood pressure because it puts stress on your body. When you have sleep apnea, you stop breathing dozens or hundreds of times each night. This reduces your oxygen levels and puts added strain on your heart and your cardiovascular system. When you are getting healthy sleep, your blood pressure goes down. Sleep apnea can prevent that from happening, since it raises your normal blood pressure over time.
