Breathing and airway problems are a growing concern. According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, more than 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. Adults and children are experiencing the negative effects caused by disturbed sleep.

Dr. Hakimi is dedicated to a holistic approach for treating her patients. She knows her patients' quality of life is affected not just their oral health, but their whole-body health. Helping her patients find effective solutions for their breathing problems is vitally important to their overall well-being.

Dentists have become the primary providers when it comes to treating airway and breathing problems. Opening the airway by means of a custom-created orthotic is the most effective and comfortable solution for many patients

What are the benefits of orthotic treatment?

  • No noisy CPAP machine disturbing everyone's sleep
  • It's custom created for your mouth, and it's very comfortable to wear
  • It effectively moves the jaw forward and opens the airway for better air flow
  • Stops snoring, teeth grinding, gasping for breath, and disruptive sleep apnea.
 

‘‘Wonderful experience, and yes at the dentist's office! Dr. Hakimi is very down to earth; she spends time explaining everything that her office can do for you. Dr. Hakimi and her team of ladies were professional and made you feel as relaxed as you could be in a dentist's chair.‘‘
