Daly City asks, “Can I find sleep apnea treatment near me”

Only a few dental professionals are trained in the control and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring. Daly City residents are fortunate; when they do an internet search for “sleep apnea treatment near me.” They will discover that a nearby dentist, Dr. Leo Arellano, located at 3030 Geary Blvd. San Francisco, CA 94118 has extensive experience in successfully treating snoring and sleep apnea.

The importance of treatment

Seeking treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is crucial to patients’ health, safety, and wellbeing. This condition causes the body to be deprived of sufficient oxygen to supply the vital organs while sleeping. The following are just some of the health concerns associated with this condition.

Heart disease – Those who have OSA are more likely to suffer fatal heart attacks during the night. This could be due to the system stress of insufficient restful sleep, or low blood oxygen levels. Atrial fibrillation (abnormal heart rhythm) and strokes have also been linked to OSA. The lack of oxygen makes it difficult for the brain to regulate blood flow to the arteries and brain.

High blood pressure – The frequent waking at night causes an increase in activity of the hormonal systems, resulting in higher blood pressure levels at night in individuals with hypertension. Insufficient levels of oxygen in the blood can contribute to high blood pressure as well. Some patients who receive treatment for their OSA are able to reduce the amount of medications they are taking for their blood pressure.

Diabetes – Up to 80 percent of all people with Type 2 diabetes have some level of OSA. Although research has not discovered the direct link between diabetes and OSA, it is known that insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes, can be caused by sleep deprivation.

Asthma – Although the connection between asthma and OSA has not been proven, many patients find they suffer from fewer asthma attacks after receiving sleep apnea treatment.

The most common physician prescribed treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is the use of a CPAP machine, but patient compliance with this method is low. CPAP is very effective when used, but many patients discontinue the therapy due to discomfort and inconvenience.

Dr. Leo Arellano and his team have achieved great success treating mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea with comfortable dental appliances and coaching on simple lifestyle changes. They can help people in Daly City and across the Bay Area enjoy restorative sleep once again. Call 415-881-4343 to schedule an appointment.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
