Dr. Scott E. West Helps Patients that Suffer from Sleep Apnea by Providing Alternative Treatment to the CPAP Mask
If you snore and have trouble sleeping, it might be due to abnormal restrictions in your airway, which affects your breathing and limits your oxygen intake when you are asleep. This condition is called sleep apnea (http://www.cannotusecpap.com). It disrupts your rest throughout the night, causing snoring, choking or gasping during sleep, as well as irritability and exhaustion while awake. For millions of individuals, sleep apnea affects their day-to-day life and overall health in many ways. For sleep apnea sufferers who are aware of the condition and have sought treatment, the foremost option they're given is the CPAP based therapy, or continuous positive airway pressure therapy. This method isn't always a practical solution for some sleep apnea patients. Many find that they have intolerance for the CPAP mask, or at the very least, find the nightly treatment uncomfortable, claustrophobic and inconvenient. Lake Forest, CA dentist, Dr. Scott E. West has focused his practice on helping such patients and providing them with an effective and successful CPAP alternative.
With personalized treatments for snoring, mild to severe sleep apnea, and CPAP intolerance, Dr. West has achieved a markedly high success rate in providing patients with relief. As Dr. West and his patients can tell you, relief means a lot of different things for sleep apnea suffers. For some it means being able to comfortably share a bedroom with their partner, to no longer be tethered to a machine and be stuck behind a mask each night, to go about their day feeling alert and energized, or to experience peace of mind in knowing their condition is no longer increasing their risk for stroke, heart attack, E.D, Alzheimer's disease, and other serious health issues that have been linked to sleep apnea.
A thirty-year veteran of general, cosmetic, family and biologic dentistry, Dr. Scott E. West, five years ago, made the decision to provide treatment that's exclusive to the field of dental sleep medicine. His practice is focused on treating patients with snoring and sleep apnea problems and helping them get a good night's sleep. The individual needs of each patient are determined and considered. He does not prescribe to the one size fits all treatment, but works to provide each patient with options which are most effective to their unique case.
For individuals who regularly snore, are affected by sleep apnea and who are dissatisfied with or intolerant to the CPAP mask, Dr. Scott E. West invites you to his Orange County office in Lake Forest for a complimentary consultation on dental sleep medicine. The sooner you get a good night's sleep, the better you ensure a long, healthy life.
