Holistic Sleep Apnea Solutions in Lake Forest
The Alternative You’ve Been Seeking
Have you been living with a condition like sleep apnea because you just didn’t like the standard treatment – or found it uncomfortable or not especially effective?
Or maybe you’ve been newly diagnosed and are exploring options beyond CPAP for apnea.
Here at the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance, we take a holistic and personalized approach to treating OSA. Instead of managing symptoms, we strive to address root causes to bring long-term relief – and to do so in gentle, minimally invasive, and cost-effective ways.
Frankly, we think it’s a better way to support our patients’ oral AND whole body health and well-being.
A Better Night’s Sleep – No CPAP Required
Obstructive sleep apnea is like drowning in your sleep. This puts an enormous amount of stress on your body, both from oxygen deprivation and your body going into “red alert” mode each time it senses you’ve stopped breathing. Feeling tired when you get up in the morning is just one consequence. You also have a higher risk of conditions like hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, and more.
For years, the only real solution has been “continuous positive airway pressure,” or CPAP, which keeps the airway open with a steady stream of air. It’s extremely effective. It’s been a real lifesaver for many.
But some find the breathing mask uncomfortable. Or they hate the hassle of hauling their equipment whenever they travel. Or they just don’t want to be dependent on a machine to get a good night’s sleep.
Oral Appliance Therapy to the Rescue!
Today, a wide range of FDA-approved oral appliances are available, scientifically proven to be just as effective as CPAP, even for severe cases of OSA. Most work by simply holding the lower jaw or tongue in an optimal forward position during sleep, so they can’t fall back and block your airway as you relax. Your airway remains free and clear.
The advanced oral appliances we use at the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance are lightweight and custom-fitted to your teeth. Our patients find them comfortable and convenient in a way that CPAP can never be, and they love working with Dr. Ann Abdulla, one of the only dentists in Orange County trained and board-certified in dental sleep medicine.
Oral appliance therapy can help you sleep – and breathe – easy, so you can look, feel, and be your best every day. It’s a simple solution with whole body benefits.

Get to know Lake Forest
is a city in Orange County, California. The population was 85,858 at the 2020 census.
Lake Forest incorporated as a city on December 20, 1991. Prior to incorporation, the community had been known as El Toro. Following a vote in 2000, Lake Forest expanded its city limits to include the master-planned developments of Foothill Ranch and Portola Hills. This expansion brought new homes and commercial centers to the northeastern boundary of the city.
Lake Forest has two lakes from which the city gets its name. The lakes are man-made, and condominiums and custom homes ranging from large to small line their shores. Neighborhood associations manage the lakes (Lake 1, known as the Lake Forest Beach and Tennis Club, and Lake 2, the Sun and Sail Club.) Each facility features tennis courts, gyms, basketball courts, barbecue pits, volleyball courts, multiple swimming pools, saunas, hot tubs and club houses for social events.
The “forest” for which the city is also named lies in the area between Ridge Route, Jeronimo, Lake Forest and Serrano roads, and consists mostly of Eucalyptus trees. It is also man-made, and was created in the first decade of the 1900s when a local landowner, Dwight Whiting, planted 400 acres (1.6 km2) of Eucalyptus groves in the vicinity of Serrano Creek as part of a lumber operation intended to draw development to the area. In the late 1960s, the Occidental Petroleum company developed a residential community in and around the Eucalyptus groves, which had long since expanded and grown much more dense.
