If you’re tired when you wake up, feeling drowsy throughout the day, and having trouble with your memory, are you just trying to deal with it the best you can? You may try to combat your tiredness with extra-large cups of coffee or energy drinks – yet don’t experience much improvement to your alertness or energy levels. You may have accepted this as normal for you. But these symptoms may be caused by the common condition of obstructive sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea, also known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), results from an OSA sufferer’s own anatomy. Sleep apnea can cause disrupted sleep night after night. According to this article published by the New York Times, at least 22 million Americans struggle with sleep apnea. Leaving this condition untreated can have seriously negative effects on your health and well-being. Let’s take a look at three ways your untreated sleep apnea may be hurting you.
Dr. Atul Malhotra, the director of Sleep Medicine at the University of California San Diego, says that with sleep apnea “you get sleepiness, lack of energy and an inability to concentrate.” These detrimental effects of sleep apnea can have consequences at work, school, and in every aspect of your life. Treating sleep apnea in Miami can help you reclaim your energy levels and get restful sleep.
Sleep apnea causes your oxygen levels to decrease during the night. Instead of resting and restoring itself during sleep, your body becomes stressed because of OSA and your vital organs receive less oxygen than they need. These decreased oxygen levels can affect your brain, your heart, and every other major organ in your body. Keeping your airway open throughout the night lets your oxygen levels remain stable and helps prevent the unwanted effects of sleep apnea.
At Yazji Orthodontics, we help our patients with sleep apnea get the rest they need using personalized OAT treatment. Oral Appliance Therapy for obstructive sleep apnea from the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics is an alternative to CPAP machine treatment and low-quality over-the-counter appliances for sleep apnea. Contact our Weston, Brickell, or Miami office today to schedule an OAT treatment consultation with Dr. Yazji. Don’t let obstructive sleep apnea harm your health – get OAT treatment from Yazji Orthodontics.
Time is precious, I think we can all agree on that. There are never enough hours in the day to complete all those tasks we keep adding to our to-do lists. Still, we must prioritize and make decisions about what we will spend our time doing and which tasks we can put off for another day. An average day generally involves exercising, commuting, working, lunch, networking, dinner, time with friends and family, errands . . . the list goes on and on. So, where does that leave you and the things you do for YOU? Like getting your teeth and smile in tip-top shape? Learn more about Orthodontic Miami.

Loud snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment in Miami – They’d only been married for two weeks and he was already sleeping on the couch. No, it wasn’t something he said. There wasn’t an argument. He didn’t still have a dating app on his phone. It was his snoring! The newlyweds thought they knew what to expect from marriage, but sharing a bed with someone who snores loudly can make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep. It wasn’t the start to married life the couple in downtown Miami had expected. But there was a solution — after a trip to the doctor and a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea, he found out how to get help for snoring in Downtown Miami with OAT Treatment.
Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is a common problem for many people in the US. When you have OSA, lying down can cause your airway to become partially blocked by the soft tissue in your throat. When you have OSA, you may wake many times throughout the night. And though you may not be aware of these disturbances in your sleep, disrupted sleep can have a serious effect on your health. OSA can contribute to weight gain, high blood pressure, mood disorders, and other conditions. And then there’s the snoring. Loud snoring is often a sign of obstructive sleep apnea and can disrupt the sleep of your spouse and leave you sleeping on the couch. Treating OSA in Downtown Miami can help you get a better (and quieter) night’s sleep.
A CPAP machine is often used to treat sleep apnea. This machine and mask keep the airway open while the patient sleeps. But many patients give up on this method of OSA treatment in Miami because they find the machine is noisy, bulky, and embarrassing. But there’s a better option – OAT treatment. OAT (oral appliance therapy) treatment from Yazji Orthodontics is a customized approach to sleep apnea management. Like a CPAP machine, an OAT device helps keep your airway open. But unlike a CPAP machine, an oral appliance therapy device from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics is quiet, unobtrusive, and easy to use every night.
If you’re considering an oral appliance to manage the symptoms of your sleep apnea, get one that’s made for you. Like an over-the-counter ZYPPAH device for sleep apnea, an OAT device fits right into your mouth. Nut, unlike a ZYPPAH device, an OAT device is made to fit your unique mouth, for more comfortable and effective OSA treatment in Downtown Miami. Don’t settle for an OTC device, get a custom OAT device for sleep apnea from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics in Miami.
Loud snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment in Miami. Your sleep, and the sleep of your spouse, is important. Don’t keep them up with your snoring, and don’t sleep on the couch anymore – treat your obstructive sleep apnea with OAT therapy from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics. Schedule an OAT device consultation today. Get the restful sleep you need with the help of a convenient, comfortable oral appliance therapy device when you get OAT treatment in Downtown Miami from the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics.
Do you wake up feeling tired? Have you been told that you snore? These signs and symptoms may point to obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea, also known as OSA, is a common condition that impacts the sleep — and health — of many adults. But with the right OSA treatment in South Florida, obstructive sleep apnea won’t be a problem for you.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea means that your airway becomes partially blocked when you sleep, causing you to briefly stop breathing. This can happen many times each night and compromise the quality of your sleep.
What causes Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
The soft tissue in your throat that isn’t a problem while you are upright reposition when you lie down, causing your airway to become blocked. OSA can be the temporary side effect of a cold and can become a problem during pregnancy. OSA can develop due to allergies or weight gain. Smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking some prescription medicines may worsen obstructive sleep apnea. In some cases, genetics are thought to play a role in OSA.
What are the risks associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
If obstructive sleep apnea is a persistent problem for you, your health is at risk. OSA disrupts sleep, which can have negative effects on health and well-being, including:
And other health risks.
Your body needs deep restorative sleep to rest and heal. Your organs need oxygen. OSA can cause poor sleep and decreases oxygen levels, leaving you tired and less healthy every morning.
How is Obstructive Sleep Apnea treated?
Treatment of OSA involves keeping the airway open continuously during sleep. A CPAP machine, over-the-counter oral devices, and oral appliance therapy are popular obstructive sleep apnea treatment methods.
A CPAP machine requires the OSA patient to wear a mask throughout the night. Many patients stop using their CPAP machine, saying it’s too loud or too inconvenient. Without treatment, their sleep apnea continues.
An over-the-counter appliance for OSA fits into the mouth and keeps the airway unobstructed during sleep. There’s no mask, no machine, no noise. But OSA patients have found that these boil-and-bite devices lose their shape after being boiled a few times, and can be uncomfortable. When a patient stops wearing their OTC sleep apnea device, their poor sleep quality returns.
OAT treatment from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics is a good way to correct obstructive sleep apnea. An OAT device is custom-made for the OSA patient at one of our three South Florida offices. This device is worn every night, keeping the airway clear and letting the OSA patient get the restful sleep they need. An OAT device is made to comfortably fit each patient, retain its shape, and conveniently treat obstructive sleep apnea. Contact our Weston, Brickell, or Miami office for an OAT Treatment consultation with Dr. Yazji. Don’t let the risks of OSA harm your health — get treatment for your obstructive sleep apnea at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics.

Some people believe that communication begins with your words, but it starts much earlier than that. According to psychologist Albert Mehrabian’s communication model, only 7% of what we communicate is actually verbal, yet 55% is body language which encompasses your smile. Statistically speaking, your smile delivers a powerful message when you choose to send it. It says so much about yourself that you don’t realize, even the length and width of your smile and most certainly your teeth and whether they are cared for or not.
Every single time you smile you activate the messaging system in your brain that sends a neural text for some serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins to throw your body a party. This all happens within moments of you deciding to smile.
According to a university in Minnesota experiment, there are 19 different types of smiles but only 6 are due to happiness. Let Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics help you to make each of those 6 smiles outstanding! A study by a UC-San Francisco researcher found that these different types of smiles can be placed in one of two categories: polite or sincere smiles and can use up to 53 muscles in your face. If that isn’t enough, read these interesting facts?
Your smile sends out the most basic human communication that says, “I’m worth getting to know.” It also says, “I’m open to new experiences, outgoing and fun to be around.” Believe it or not, your smile is also thought to regulate blood pressure and improve your moods.

Do you struggle with sleeplessness and snoring then you might want to call your orthodontist? There are many people who refuse to stay the night with their partners because of the embarrassment of snoring. There are couples who haven’t shared the same bed for years because of his or her snoring. There is something you can do to treat this embarrassing problem. Disturbed sleep and snoring are just some of the signs of Obstructive Sleep Apnea and believe it or not, your teeth could be to blame. Many people are really surprised when they hear this. The National Sleep Foundation estimates that 22 million Americans suffer from Sleep Apnea and 80 percent of these cases are undiagnosed.
If you think you or your loved one may suffer from this, then you might want to have it checked out. Obstructive Sleep Apnea can cause repeated breathing interruptions throughout the night, these pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes and may occur 30 or more times per hour. Gasping for breath can cause you to wake up repeatedly through the night which contributes to fatigue and drowsiness during the daytime hours. This lack of restful and uninterrupted sleep can greatly affect your daytime activities and concentration. Sleep apnea is also linked to a higher risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. Some evidence suggests that if you get your sleep back, it can help you to lose weight and this could change your love life. Everything counts when you’re trying to get to sleep.
Sleep Apnea can happen for various reasons, the muscles in the back of your throat are soft, your tongue might be too large or even your jaw could be too large, and all these things can cause obstruction to your airways. You have a few choices to help you resolve this problem. You can choose surgery which includes:
The easier, simplest, and better option is to simply call Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics because they know something that you might not. Many times, the first sign of sleep apnea is tooth grinding, which is called bruxism. Grinding your teeth can cause breaks and inflamed and receding gums. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics can fit you with an oral appliance and you will find that you don’t need surgery at all. You can choose an over-the-counter appliance that never quite fits properly and can cause more problems than they fix, or you can get a custom fit appliance designed for your mouth by an experienced orthodontist trained in this type of correction and who will provide you with a comfortable night’s sleep. Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) has been proven to be an effective treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics will take impressions of your teeth to make sure that your appliance is absolutely right for you.
Don’t wait until you have to come to see your orthodontist. Take control of your sleep and call to book an appointment today at any of our convenient South Florida orthodontics offices. It really is as simple as: do you want a better night’s sleep?
