Sleep Apnea Gardena, CA

If you stop breathing, gasp, or choke while sleeping, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. At Gardena Dental Group, our dentist can provide sleep apnea appliances that keep your airways open during sleep. Untreated sleep apnea can contribute to several serious health conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and liver problems, so it is important to get treatment as soon as possible.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder marked by interruptions and pauses in breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as the tongue rolling back in the throat or collapsed tissues in the air passage.

Sleep apnea treatment may depend on the severity of the condition. If you suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, our dentist may recommend an oral appliance. The oral appliance works to treat obstructive sleep apnea by fitting over your teeth and keeping your airway open while you sleep. It can work by preventing the tongue from blocking the air passage or by holding your jaw in a position that prevents airway blockages during sleep.

What are the Signs of Sleep Apnea?

If you think you may be experiencing sleep apnea, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with your dentist, as well as a follow-up with your doctor. Common signs of sleep apnea include

I really want to share my wonderful experience with this dental office because it was fabulous from start to finish and quite unexpected to be honest. This was my first time coming to this office and I was a bit nervous because I have had not so good experiences with dental offices persuading me that I needed dental procedures that I didn’t need and this is not what happened here. Upon arrival I was greeted by a very polite young lady that showed me the paperwork that needed completing. It was about 2-3 minutes and I was whisked into the X-ray/exam room. The lady taking my X-rays was super gentle and Dr. T was extremely knowledgeable about what to expect and the procedure I needed moving forward. I do not currently have dental insurance, but Leslie, which happens to have the same name as me, is absolutely amazing and very professional. She was the highlight of my visit for sure. Unlike other dental offices, she truly cares and she sees me, not the dollar signs. I appreciated that the most. Leslie worked the numbers to where she could give me a discount rate and worked out an affordable payment plan. I am over 60 and have had a lot of dental work done in the past by different dentist and this was a much different experience I love this place so very much and thank you to ALL of the staff for making me feel so special. You are all awesome!

I usually do not write reviews whether they’re positive or negative but I am making an exception this time. I went to Gardena Dental Group for x rays and a cleaning. I was treated so great by the hygienist Kaily. She was so kind and very patient with all my questions. I loved how she answered my questions with details. When it came to the cleaning she gave me tips in how to floss and brush my teeth, she was very gentle too. She was literally amazing, I have never had such a great experience with a hygienist.

After my teeth cleaning was done, it was time to pay and Jessica helped me with that she was also very kind and made sure I had a great experience.
