It’s more serious than you think
During sleep, some people experience interrupted sleep caused by gasping, loud snoring, and momentarily stopping breathing. The sleep disruption is due to not getting enough oxygen while sleeping — which causes other mental and physical issues from lack of sleep. There are a variety of issues that may contribute to your sleep apnea. Non-medical factors may include stress, lack of proper nutrition, poor sleeping habits, and lifestyle factors. Medically, sleep apnea can be caused by a deviated septum or polyps in the sinuses, making it difficult to breathe while sleeping, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, or clinical depression.
Most importantly and in the majority of cases, sleep apnea is caused by the position of the tongue causing an obstruction of the airway. A correct diagnosis is the first step in resolving your condition. If the sleep apnea is in a milder phase, your doctor will suggest changes to your lifestyle, like quitting smoking, losing weight, avoiding tranquilizers and sleeping pills, and regular exercise. Your nasal cavity must be examined to eliminate any contributing allergy or other blockages. If these conventional methods are not helping, there are other methods for relieving this medical problem.
Dr. Eddie Siman provides his patients with painless, non-surgical, proprietary holistic therapies. Unlike other medical professionals who treat TMJ, such as orthodontists, ENTs, and neurologists, Dr. Siman’s approach to treating sleep apnea puts him in a class all his own. He utilizes advanced technology to get to the root of your problem and help alleviate your sleep apnea.
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a machine that delivers high-pressure air through a mouthpiece that covers your nose and mouth. The more considerable air pressure assures constant opening of the upper part of your lungs. The patient wears the mask throughout the night. This method effectively prevents and eliminates apnea and snoring for patients suffering from mild to moderate sleep apnea.
However, more severe sleep apnea symptoms may require patients to have more invasive procedures to find relief. However, the major obstacle of using the CPAP is the lack of proper fitting, constantly adjusting the mask, and portability or indiscretion of wearing the CPAP. In addition, this breathing device is costly, and the costs of replacing parts every three months like tubing, filter, and chamber replacement can add up — not to mention the constant need to clean the machine properly. Most recently, numerous manufacturers of CPAP devices have recalled their machines because these devices were causing respiratory infections due to bacterial accumulation in the masks and hoses that patients could not sterilize adequately. This is a serious factor for patients with respiratory problems and may be life-threatening, especially in the elderly population.
Many patients may also find relief using oral devices to eliminate sleep apnea. These hygienic and comfortable devices keep the airway open by bringing the jaw forward and holistically preventing the tongue from blocking the throat. These devices are very easy to use, and Dr. Siman uses his advanced equipment for the optimum fabrication of a device, making sure that the muscles of your face, neck, and jaw are in a relaxed position while you wear the device. In Sherman Oaks, we offer the following sleep apnea solutions:
Dr. Siman’s clinical examination includes a diagnosis of your sleep apnea-related symptoms, including migraines, headaches, ringing in the ears, neck and shoulder pains, snoring, sleep apnea, and more. Dr. Siman will evaluate your airway through the analysis of your CT scan and schedule you for a sleep study that will be done in the comfort of your own bed through the most advanced technologies available. The obtained data will be reviewed by a board-certified sleep specialist that will determine if you are a candidate for an oral device. In diagnosing sleep apnea, you as a patient play a significant role in presenting all of the symptoms — when they began (even those that seem unrelated to the problem), critical personal information, any sleeping disorders, any medicines and supplements, and recreational drug use.
Our state-of-the-art in-house CT Scan will help Dr. Siman determine how your Sleep Apnea-related issues impact your body.
Dr. Siman wants to give his patients the best chance to overcome their sleep apnea, even if it means creating the device himself.

Dr. Siman’s device is comfortable, adjustable, and tolerable to wear for long periods compared to traditional CPAP machines. It also requires no electricity or batteries. The device fits like a retainer with the help of dental pictures and muscle testing for optimized placement. Experience a restful sleep with no noise, no discomfort, and less infection risk.
Dr. Siman uses physio-therapeutic equipment, such as TENS, to relax tense jaw muscles. The transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS) delivers pulses of electricity to your body’s neurotransmitters, so the neurons release endorphins and signal your muscles to relax. Tongue movement can be controlled with a nerve stimulator implanted under the skin on the right side of the chest. The hypoglossal nerve is stimulated and prevents the tongue from blocking the throat.
