Sleep Apnea Woodland Hills Questions & Answers


What are the signs of sleep apnea?

Snoring is the number one sign of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition where there are breaks or pauses in your breathing while you sleep. It is caused by the soft tissues in your palate or throat relaxing into your airways when you sleep, as well as the general narrowness of the airways and other similar abnormalities. Obstructions are often caused by the soft palate relaxing and descending into the throat during sleep. They are also common in people who are overweight or who have a short or thick throat. Oversized tonsils and adenoids can also cause the obstruction. In many cases, the obstruction is not visible when looking into the patient’s mouth or by feeling their throat, so the detailed images provided by Dr. Shokri and her 3D imaging technology are much more effective at identifying any obstructions to diagnose sleep apnea and determine the best course of treatment.Other signs of the condition include daytime tiredness, weight-gain, difficulty concentrating, and moodiness.

What is the treatment for sleep apnea?

Dr. Shokri will suggest the most effective form of treatment to address your particular case of sleep apnea Woodland Hills. A common treatment for sleep apnea includes dental appliances that gently hold the jaw in a forward position which prevents the soft palate from relaxing into the airway.

Had gum surgery that seemed less like surgery and more like a regular teeth cleaning visit. Could not have gone better and more smoothly. The doctor and her staff work flawlessly together.
