While CPAP can be a literal lifesaver, many patients just don’t like it. They find it uncomfortable, awkward, annoying.
Fortunately, new treatments have emerged that have proven just as effective as CPAP and are vastly preferred by patients. Providing these is a specialty of Dr. Angham (Ann) Abdulla, a holistic dentist who has over 25 years of experience and is specially certified in dental sleep medicine. It was what led her to establish the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance, where she and her team pride themselves on offering real alternatives for treating sleep apnea.

A recent article on the side effects of CPAP masks has underscored the importance of having such alternatives. According to the Sleep Foundation, the side effects of CPAP can be wide-ranging and include aerophagia, which means swallowing too much air – an action that typically leads to abdominal discomfort. Ongoing CPAP use can lead to sores, rashes, pressure ulcers, and upper respiratory tract infections. It can also contribute to dry eyes, nose, and mouth.
Dr. Abdulla and her team at the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance know that even though sleep apnea can be deadly and CPAP can be a literal lifesaver, CPAP can’t fulfill its promise if a patient doesn’t or can’t use it.
This makes them proud advocates for new treatments such as oral appliance therapy that uses lightweight, comfortable devices to keep the airway open so a person can sleep peacefully through the night and wake up feeling rested and refreshed. Additional therapies may be incorporated, as well, to get to the root of the sleep breathing disorder.
All the alternative therapies proposed by Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance are non-surgical and holistic. All treatment plans are customized to each patient’s specific needs, for Dr. Abdulla considers sleep apnea as the result of a complex intertwinement of dental and medical factors.
Ultimately, what the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance has to offer for those whose sleep breathing disorders are keeping them from getting the restorative sleep they need for good health is summed up in their slogan: Call Today, Sleep Tonight.
