Sleep apnea is recognized as persistent pauses in your breathing while you sleep. This is the result of your muscles relaxing and gravity pulling your airways closed. The momentary suffocation that results creates excessive strain on the body, which may lead to health complications, such as memory loss, mood change, weight gain, fatigue, and hypertension. There are many sleep or snoring apnea treatments available, ranging from airway surgeries, such as a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, maxillofacial surgery, or a CPAP machine. Sometimes people aren't satisfied with these solutions. In these situations, they might turn to dental options to help solve the problem. At The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery in Pasadena, CA, we produce customized night guards to offer relief to our sleep apnea patients. Dr. Husam Elias is proud to offer you this easy, reliable service to help you attain better health and wellness.

Sleep apnea treatment with Dr. Elias at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery is treated with a variety of therapies. The first is oral appliance therapy (OAT), which can be quite an effective therapy for sleep apnea. It is a customized device that fits in your mouth at night, like a mouth guard for sports or a retainer. The main difference is that rather than guarding your teeth against injury, it softly places the jaw into a forward position to continue to keep your airway open. You will also have digital x-rays performed so that Dr. Elias is able to create detailed impressions of your teeth for your dental appliance. After your dental appliance has been made at the technologically advanced dental lab, you will return to our office for a fitting. The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery will contact you to set up a follow-up appointment. Dr. Elias will adjust and fit it according to your needs to get it as comfortable as possible. Dr. Elias will want you to bring your device to checkups and return it every year to examine it for wear and tear. Your quality of life should dramatically improve if you adhere to our instructions properly.

Another option is a nasal CPAP machine. This may be recommended to be worn as you sleep, delivering pressurized oxygen through a nasal mask to limit the obstruction of the passage.

One of your surgical options includes uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), which will remove or remodel excess tissue in the throat. The surgery is performed in the back of the soft palate and the throat, often containing excess tissue that when cleared may open up the airway and make breathing less labored. Similarly, a laser-assisted UPP (LAUPP) uses a radiofrequency probe in the hopes of achieving the same results. In more complex cases, a UPP may be combined with jaw surgery to reposition the jaw in order to widen the airway.

I was recommend by a friend who got her breast and BBL done by Dr. Elias and I’m so glad I found him! Dr. Elias did such an amazing job with my lip fillers giving me natural results I wanted. I was debating getting them done for over a year because it was hard to find a trusting doctor and a great price. From the moment I walked through the door the staff was very kind and did not feel pressure at all to make any decisions. They took their time explaining to me my different options and made sure all my questions were answered. But not only is he the best cosmetic surgeon, he’s an oral surgeon as well which is perfect because my wisdom teeth need to be removed! We all want the natural results and if your looking for a Doctor who can do that for you, look no further Dr. Elias is the one!

His artistry speaks for itself, and he did a beautiful job on me.It is almost 4 months, and even with his booming business, I have never once felt dismissed when reaching out to him, or his lovely team, about anything big or small. I will forever remain grateful for my results.

My first procedure was Facetite with Dr. Elias. I was able to do the procedure awake on a Friday & was back to work on Monday! I was still swollen but not in pain at all. It’s a minimum invasive procedure to tighten the skin & gets rid of the fat. The staff was really friendly and was able to answer all my questions. I’ve been back many more times for Botox & fillers. Dr. Elias is such a perfectionist and that is exactly what I’m looking for in a Cosmetic Surgeon!
