Ready To Start Sleeping Soundly?

Sleep apnea is a serious condition where you stop breathing while you sleep. What’s often not recognized, is that sleep apnea causes a lack of oxygen to the organs and brain, and in severe cases may result in death. As a leader in neuromuscular dentistry, Dr. Santucci provides Orinda sleep apnea treatments that can add years to the lives of guests in his dental office.

An orthotic is used by Dr. Santucci in order to treat sleep apnea in the East Bay area. Sleep apnea is caused by a blockage in the back of the throat, which is the cause for the inability to breathe while you sleep. With an orthotic that’s custom fit just for you and worn at night, you’ll be able to maintain proper airflow and significantly reduce apnea episodes. This type of sleep apnea treatment is much more comfortable and convenient than any CPAP machine.

Orinda dentist, Dr. Santucci urges you to recognize these common sleep apnea symptoms:

  • Snoring
  • Waking during sleep due to interrupted breathing
  • Constant fatigue or sluggishness
  • Headaches
  • Severely dry mouth upon waking up
  • Loss of short-term memory

Don’t ignore the signs of sleep apnea in yourself or a loved-one. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Santucci for the best solutions in treatment for sleep apnea in the East Bay area.
