Sleep Apnea for Adults & Children

The Types of Sleep Apnea SDB and OSA

Dr. Eng has completed intensive coursework in sleep apnea in both adults and children. Doctors have found that SDB(Sleep Disorder Breathing) often goes undiagnosed because it is masked by a diagnosis of ADHD or hyperactivity, and then treated with drugs. SDB is a generalized term in which subcategories of mild SDB and OSA(obstructive sleep apnea). SDB and OSA can have very similar symptoms and can only be truly diffentiated with sleep study data. The traditional option is to go to a Sleep Clinic where you go to a clinic to sleep for 2-3 days where someone watches your sleep pattern and takes informational data. We are offering a more relaxing option with a home monitor alternative.

At East Lake Advancing Dentistry, Dr. Eng will complete a thorough history and clinical exam, and then may recommend using the Cutting Edge Technological Home Monitor device for patients to take home which will collect sleep study data in the comfort of your own home. Once the data is taken, Dr. Eng will analyze the data to see if there are any signs of possible sleep apnea.

If your Yorba Linda dentist suspects sleep apnea may be present, he will refer you to your physician for full diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Depending on your physician's full diagnosis and treatment recommendation, sleep apnea treatment may be referred back to our office at East Lake Advancing Dentistry. In severe to moderate levels of sleep apnea, the physician generally recommends a CPAC appliance. In mild to moderate cases, an oral appliance is a treatment choice. On average, 60-70% of the patients using a CPAC, stop after 6 months. Most end up not using an appliance and thus the treatment stops. For these patients they can seek an oral appliance that can be professionally fabricated in a dental office. In our practice, Dr. Eng treats patients with an oral dental orthotic appliance. When treating children we use either an appliance to open the airway or we work with you and a specialist to prepare the best treatment plan for your child.
