Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Snoring and Sleep Apnea Dentist in Long Beach, CA

Are you struggling with Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Dr. McBride treats sleep apnea with state-of-the-art oral appliances!

Sleep Apnea is a disruptive and surprisingly common condition, most always accompanied by snoring, that can have serious health consequences for the sufferer. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when a patient experiences a pause in breathing during sleep; these “apnea events” can last anywhere from several seconds to several minutes.

Chronic, untreated sleep apnea prevents your body from getting enough oxygen during the night. Your body needs oxygen to function well and repair itself. Emerging research shows that sleep apnea can actually increase your likelihood of suffering from a number of whole-body health issues:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer

The traditional treatment for Sleep Apnea is the CPAP machine. CPAP stands for “Continuous Positive Airway Pressure,” and this machine delivers a steady stream of forceful air to the patient’s airway, either through a mouth or nose mask apparatus. Unfortunately, this treatment method has a high rate of intolerance due to many factors such as bulk of the mask, restricted movement during sleep, drying out of the mouth and airway, claustrophobia, air,/gas in stomach, etc.

There are also sleep apnea mouthpieces available including Tongue Retaining Devices (TRD) and Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD). These devices have a number of drawbacks, respectively, including discomfort, problems swallowing, and TMJ issues.

At the Dental Wellness Center, we offer an innovative alternative to these traditional treatments. Dr. Bryan Keropian has developed an oral device that is designed to lower the patient’s tongue during sleep. Embedded in this oral appliance are small tubes that gently deliver 93% oxygen from an oxygen concentrator. Our sleep apnea team has found that this oral appliance is truly transformative to many sleep apnea sufferers.

Why do so many patients choose Long Beach dentist Dr. McBride for sleep apnea treatment?

I looked high and low for a Holistic dentist to remove my Amalgam fillings. Finding Dr. McBride was the perfect solution as the driving distance was only 1/2 hour. The whole staff was terrific. They took the time to explain the procedures and treated me with the upmost respect.
Dr. McBride has a great system to protect both the patient and the staff. He has a great chair-side manner and really made sure I was comfortable and informed. I felt very confident in his expertise and my teeth look beautiful.

I would go to him for all my dentist needs but I prefer a closer location for the routine stuff.

My first experience with holistic dentistry. I learned so much about why dental health is important and not just getting the procedures. Each experience is specialized and tailored to each patient. One procedure does not fit all at Dental Wellness Center.

This office is one of the only Holistic dental offices around. The dentist is very knowledgeable, the hygenist is too and the rest of the staff is very helpful. You can trust them to put you first.

I would never go to another dentist after experiencing Dr McBride and his merry team. Dr McBride has pioneering knowledge and abilities way beyond the competition. I fully trust his work and enjoy his authentic, jovial nature, which makes “going to the dentist” a comfortable, friendly and priceless experience.
If anyone is seeking the best, look no further!
Thank you to all at Dr McBride’s.

Dr. McBride is the best. I’ve gone to him for years. He’s a master at his work. When your dealing with your teeth, you want a perfectionist. He’s all that and more. Dentistry is his passion. Always has been, always will be. There’s no better!

Extremely Friendly staff. I felt very comfortable everytime I came in. I have already recommended the Dental Wellness Center to my wife and a friend. I went in for mercury amalgam removal and its was all removed with any pain. Mr. McBride took all the right precautions and teaches you whats going on in your mouth and what they can do to fix it. It was just a great experience and the staff is so amazing!!

This office is a class act. It is clean. Everyone is friendly. Dr. McBride is the best I’ve ever seen or met in dentistry. He knows what proper health-full dental work is and isn’t, and has been a pioneer and champion in fighting for the truth about what is really going on in our mouths. I feel good every single time I am in his office. For years I’ve known how rigged modern dentistry is. Right here, in our community, is a real life hero bringing solutions to serious problems that modern dentistry has caused. I loved my old dentist but he lied to me. Flat out lied to me. And the dentist before him also did me no favors. I know I’m getting the best care in this practice and I would encourage anyone who cares about truth and health to choose Dr. McBride and his team of qualified professionals.

I just can’t enough wonderful things about Leanne, Rachel, Julie and the amazing Dr. McBride! They are all such caring and comforting people.

I had full dentures done about which I was nervous, due to all the extractions needed and then just the thought of dentures.

Dr, McBride took so much time educating me on the process and I immediately felt at ease.
The thing that impressed me so much to proceed was that he is well-known as an artist in this field and takes great care and time to build them himself.

They fit perfectly without adjustment an hour after all my extractions. And I only took a Tylenol post-surgery! Dr. Telles was his referral for the surgery and I could not have been more pleased with Dr. Telles either.

It’s been about 4 months now and I could not be happier with my decision to go with perfect-fitting dentures from Dr. McBride. And saved $40k over implant costs.

Dentures may not be for everyone, but neither are implants! You owe it to yourself to talk with Dr. McBride before making a final decision.

Dr. Robert Mcbride is one of the best dentists I’ve ever had the privilege to meet and I come from a family of dentists! I recently had a bike accident and he, not only made himself available and fit me into his busy schedule, but he also made himself available over the weekend while he was traveling to make sure I had all the necessary care and information to support me while I was going through the motions after my accident. He gives you 100% of quality time and attention to your needs. I would recommend him to anyone who really wants the best for their oral needs Thank you, Doc!.

I was very impressed with how thorough Dr. McBride was on the first 2 hour exam and how much information he gathered concerning my oral health. He and his staff imparted this information to me and mapped out a treatment plan. Over the course of several months of treatment he has restored my oral health and given my life back with more energy and no pain. I highly recommend Dr. McBride and the Dental Wellness Center.
