Sleep Apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a patient has disrupted breathing while sleeping that can cause snoring, or cause you to jolt awake. When your breathing is affected in this way, it causes a lack of continuous oxygen to the brain.
25% of normal adults are habitual snorers, while 45% of people snore at least occasionally. Dr. Kam will be able to detect what is the source of your snoring and provide you with various solutions. There are a wide variety of treatment options for sleep apnea that we are able to offer at Agoura Advanced Dentistry such as:
- CPAP appliances

It is important to note that sleep apnea treatment is very often covered by health insurance plans. We are able to help both children and adults suffering from this disorder. We aim to improve more restful sleep and improve the airflow for your health sake.
