What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a potentially life-threatening breathing disorder that occurs during sleep. OSA is when your airway is blocked by the soft tissue in your through causing airflow to stop for 10 seconds or more. While you sleep, the tissues relax, they fall back and collapse, blocking your airway. The most common treatment for OSA is to prescribe a CPAP apparatus which needs to be worn throughout the night. Many people find that using a CPAP apparatus hinders their ability to have a comfortable sleep. The Sleep Apnea Center of Los Angeles uses a small Oral Device to achieve the same benefits as a CPAP mask. Allowing you to get a Good Night’s Sleep…unmasked.
