Sleep Therapy Specialist Dr. Vickie Greenberg

If you’ve ever experienced insomnia you know how tough it is to stay alert and focused the next day. If you suffer from Sleep Apnea and snoring, then you know how detrimental consistently poor sleep is for maintaining an active and productive lifestyle.

If you or your partner has been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, or your snoring has become an ongoing in issue in your household, read on to learn more about Sleep Therapy Specialist Dr. Vickie Greenberg and how she uses orthodontics to improve the sleeping patterns of her patients every single day.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea is a condition marked by consistent disruptions in breathing during sleep. This results in snoring, meaning not only does the patient experience poor sleep, but their partner as well.

When you don’t sleep well it’s really hard to stay focused on your daily activities. Your work may begin to suffer, as well as your relationships. There is a cumulative effect to poor sleep, and it’s best to take action sooner rather than later so that you can get back on course before your life becomes unmanageable.

Dangers of Sleep Apnea

Not only are these constant disruptions annoying and bad for your concentration the next day, they can also be dangerous for your health. It’s really hard on your heart to continuously stop and then restart breathing like that-some people experience hundreds of disruptions per night!

Ongoing untreated Sleep Apnea can lead to more serious consequences, such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes.

Maybe you’ve heard of or had experience with a Cpap machine. It is apparatus that you wear during the night to force air into your lungs so that you don’t stop breathing. This treatment works well for some, but others find the machine cumbersome, loud, and sometimes even more annoying than the snoring itself.

Orthodontic Care for Sleep Apnea

Dr. Vickie Greenberg understands the importance of good sleep. She has dedicated much of her 25 years of experience as an Orthodontist learning to treat sleep disorders using non-invasive and non-surgical techniques.

Dr. Greenberg will conduct a thorough examination and interview to understand exactly how your sleep problems are presenting and design a treatment plan that will work for you and your lifestyle.

Dentofacial orthodontics uses Palatal expanders to widen the airway so that the passageway is no longer obstructed while you sleep. These are specifically designed to fit inside your mouth, so no noisy appliances or excess apparatus to deal with.

She also utilizes the Fotona Laser for Sleep Apnea patients; safe, gentle, painless laser technology used to tighten the palate and make for an unobstructed airway.

These are just 2 of the methods Dr. Greenberg uses to treat Sleep Apnea and snoring, that don’t involve surgery or intensive long term treatment. She enjoys a challenge, and thrives on creatively discovering ways to improve the sleep of her patients without surgery or extractions.

Many of her patients have come to her after being told surgery was necessary-and she found a way to avoid it.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign Clear Aligners consist of clear aligners that are tailored to fit perfectly over your teeth. In this way they slowly shift your teeth into the desired position.

Invisalign Teens Pasadena

If you have kids, you know that life is about to get hectic. The school year tends to get busier and busier as time rolls on, so get your appointments set up for orthodontic treatment soon so that you don’t have to worry about it later!

Orthodontics for Kids

It is recommended that kids see an orthodontist by the time they are 7. That may seem young, but an orthodontist may be able to spot potential problems before they become more serious. Even if your child’s teeth look straight and even, there could be unseen issues that can be addressed sooner rather than later.

The best thing about preventative care is that it tends to be easier and therefore less expensive! So don’t wait…get your kids in to see an orthodontist as soon as possible. Technology has come so far in such a short period of time that all aspects of orthodontia are easier than ever before-especially if you catch the problem early!

Orthodontics for Teens

When you think of teenagers and orthodontics you may be picturing metal braces. Nowadays Invisalign® aligners are accessible to patients of all ages, and that includes your selfie-happy teenagers!

Teenagers tend to perform very well with Invisalign, better than their parents expect much of the time. They are virtually invisible, so that goes over well for self-conscious teenagers, but there are other benefits as well.

Invisalign aligners can be removed for the sake of eating and cleaning your teeth. They also consist of less hardware than metal braces, so there is less potential for damage or breakage, meaning fewer appointments with the orthodontist!

If your teenager needs orthodontic care, and you wonder if Invisalign might be an option, schedule with Dr. Vickie Greenberg today! She is a Diamond Status Invisalign Provider, and the best in the business!

Orthodontics for Adults

And last but not least, orthodontic treatment for you! More adults are seeking out orthodontic care every year, and it’s not just for the sake of vanity. A healthy, straight, even smile goes a long way towards preserving the longevity of your overall health.

Using Orthodontics to treat Sleep Apnea

Sleeping is one of the most important things we can do to keep our bodies and our mind functioning properly. Disturbances in sleep can be caused by Sleep Apnea, and Dr. Vickie Greenberg in Pasadena is on the forefront of using Orthodontics to treat it.

Read on to learn more about Sleep Apnea, and if an orthodontic approach may be right for you.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea causes difficulties in breathing during sleep. The person suffering may wake up several times during the night without being aware of it, and the condition is usually accompanied by snoring.

Sleep Apnea can be dangerous to your health. You won’t necessarily be aware of the sleep disruptions, though your partner probably will be. You will notice the affects the next day because they lead to drowsiness, irritability, difficulties with concentrating, and all of the other not so fun things that go along with poor sleep.

Waking up several times a night can cause your blood pressure to rise, which can lead to more serious consequences, such as heart attack or stroke.

It’s not healthy in the long or short term to have your breathing interrupted like this. Snoring is tough on a relationship, and the repercussions can cause many undesirable consequences to your lifestyle and health. Fortunately there are a number of treatment options available for Sleep Apnea.

Dr. Vickie Greenberg embraces a holistic approach to her Sleep Apnea cases. As with any health problem, each person is different.  Dr. Greenberg understands that different treatments work for different people, and is passionate about some new options available such as the Fotona Laser.

Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea

One option for sleep apnea that you’ve probably heard of is the CPAP machine. It consists of a mask and  wear while you sleep, connected to a breathing. It works by increasing the air pressure in your throat so that the airway doesn’t collapse upon exhaling, which is what causes the snoring.

Another treatment option is a fitted mouthpiece, also to be worn during sleep. They work by repositioning the jaw or tongue so that the airway is not obstructed. These can be effective also. They may be more desirable than the cumbersome mask and tube and machine that a CPAP consists of, and may be sufficient for many cases.

One approach Dr. Greenberg uses for treating sleep apnea is the Fotona Laser. This is a non-surgical “rejuvenating” laser, which tightens the tissue in the palate by enhancing collagen. This widens out the airway, lessening the source of the airway obstruction that causes the snoring.

Which Option is Best for You

Dr. Greenberg looks at each Sleep Apnea cases individually. Every patient is different, with different lifestyles, and different consequences as a result of their Sleep Apnea. A treatment that works beautifully for one patient may not be desirable or effective for another. And every patient deserves the personalized and unique care that is necessary to improve the quality of their sleep and lives.

There is no reason to keep suffering with difficulties in sleeping! Snoring can be difficult for entire families, and so can constant fatigue, which leads to other health issues.

If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, or think you may have a Sleep Apnea Diagnosis, make an appointment with Dr. Vickie Greenberg today! She offers free consultations to first time visitors. She is located in Pasadena, and serves patients from Altadena, and all over the San Gabriel Valley. So call today at (626) 798-7645, and start sleeping better tomorrow!

Summertime Invisalign for Your Teen

Summer is here and school is out! It’s a busy time for orthodontists, since families typically have more free time to juggle appointments and medical services.

Summer is a great time to get your teens started in Orthodontic care, not only because you have time now, but because it gives your child time to adjust to wearing orthodontic equipment before returning to school.

Read on to learn more about Invisalign, and if it may be right for your teen.

What is Invisalign?

Back in the day, metal braces were the first treatment option for misaligned teeth, and until fairly recently, the only option. Now we can offer different types of braces, including Invisalign® Clear Aligners.

Invisalign works best for mild to moderate misalignment cases. If your teen has a more severe case, metal braces may be a better option. Your orthodontist will do a careful analysis of your childs case before determining a treatment plan.

Invisalign consists of clear plastic aligners that are specially designed to fit perfectly over your child’s teeth. They slowly shift the teeth into their desirable positions. As one set of aligners finishes their job, a new set of aligners will arrive to replace them. Often you can arrange for the aligners to be shipped to you, minimizing your trips to the office.

Is Invisalign Right for My Teen?

Quite often parents are pleasantly surprised with their teens performance with this treatment option. Compliance is really important with Invisalign-they only work when you wear them!

They can be taken out for the purpose of eating and cleaning your teeth, but must be replaced as soon as possible. They should be worn for up to 22 hours a day in order to work effectively.

If your teenager is fairly well disciplined, this shouldn’t be a problem. Many parents report being surprised and pleased with their kids compliance. In the age of selfies and social media, the threat of replacing them with chunky metal braces often does the trick!

For more severe cases of malocclusion, Invisalign might not be appropriate. You and your orthodontist can determine what treatment is best for your teen.

Schedule with Dr. Vickie Greenberg Today!

Dr. Vickie Greenberg has been practicing orthodontics for over 25 years, and is a Diamond Status Invisalign Provider. She has a warm and welcoming demeanor that puts the most anxious of patients instantly at ease.

Dr. Greenberg favors a holistic approach to her practice-she takes into account your entire lifestyle and desired outcomes for treatment, not just the state of your teeth.

She also avoids surgery whenever possible, believing that even the most severe cases of orthodontic needs can be treated with non-invasive techniques.

Cutting-edge technology is another reason to visit Dr. Greenberg. Gone are the days of icky, gag inducing impressions. She uses the i-CAT FLX imaging equipment, making diagnosing even really tricky cases a breeze.

Located in Altadena, patients come from Pasadena and all over the Los Angeles area to visit Dr. Greenberg. Make an appointment today at (626) 798-7645, and get your teen started on Invisalign before summer’s over!

The Fotona Laser-A Non-Surgical Approach to Orthodontics

A wonderful thing about being an Orthodontist is getting to use all of the latest and best technological advances!

Surgery is scary for many, and it’s great being able to offer my patients the opportunity to fix orthodontic problems without the using surgery. Fear of surgery prevents many people from receiving the care they need to ensure their oral health. By offering non-invasive Fotona laser treatments, we can avoid surgery and improve the quality of our patient’s lives.

Fotona NightLase for Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a condition which causes the sufferer to struggle with breathing during sleep. It can wake you up several hundred times a night without you even being aware of it. But your partner probably is- because most notably it causes snoring. This can be disruptive to the snorer and their partners.

There are treatment options available for sleep apnea. The CPAP machine is the most well-known treatment. It is apparatus that connects a breathing machine, through tubes, into the airway of the patient. It forces air into the lungs, which diminishes the sleep disruptions.

The machines can be loud and cumbersome though, not to mention expensive. People often have trouble falling asleep while being hooked up to it.

Other options include custom made mouth guards, or surgery. The mouth guards can also hinder sleep, and people try to avoid invasive surgery, which can involve bleeding and scarring.

It is very exciting to offer the Fotana NightLase to my patients. It is a non-invasive option that can last for up to a year. The procedure is simple and effective, but still very gentle on the patient’s mouth.

The Fotona laser works by applying lasers to the soft tissues of the palate. This contracts the collagen, making for a firmer palate and therefore less obstruction in the airway.

The procedure is done 3 times over the course of six weeks. The affects last for up to a year, and the treatment can be repeated. It is safe, gentle, and highly effective. Best of all, it involves no invasive surgery, chemicals, or annoying breathing machines.

Fotona Laser for Tooth Whitening

Another exciting aspect of the Fotona laser is its ability to aid in tooth whitening procedures. It is the quickest, gentlest, and least invasive of teeth whitening options currently available.

It uses a unique wavelength (Er:YAG) that has a high absorption rate in water. This means the gel used for whitening your teeth does not heat up enough to cause damage to your tooth or the pulp.

It is extremely effective, minimally invasive, and causes no damage to your teeth or the pulp of your teeth.

Cutting Edge Technology in our Office

We pride ourselves for being able to offer our patients non-invasive and painless treatment options for their orthodontic needs. We know that any surgery can be scary and painful, and many people avoid it altogether.

You deserve to have a healthy and functional mouth and smile! If you’re suffering with Sleep Apnea and snoring, and are hesitant to purchase a CPAP machine, or simply want a brighter whiter smile without any damage to your teeth, make an appointment with our office today!

We offer free consultations to our first time patients. Call and schedule today at (626) 798-7645. I am Board Certified and have over 25 years of experience. My number one priority is providing successful treatments, with the maximum level of comfort possible to all of my patients. Our office is located in Altadena, and we serve patients from Pasadena and all over the San Gabriel Valley.

Pasadena’s Leading Sleep Therapy Specialist Dr. Vickie Greenberg

Pasadena Orthodontist Dr. Vickie Greenberg, specializes in TMJ Jaw Pain and Sleep Therapy. Issues with sleeping can be catalyst for a diminished healthy lifestyle, and that is why she has made sleep therapy a focal point of her orthodontics practice.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea is a condition which causes difficulties in breathing during sleep. The sufferer can wake up several times during the night, sometimes 30 times an hour without being aware of it, and the condition is often accompanied by snoring.

Sleep Apnea can be detrimental to your health. The patient isn’t often aware of these sleep disruptions, as they happen so quickly. These disruptions become more obvious the next day, since they lead to drowsiness, irritability, difficulties with concentrating, and other life interruptions caused by constant fatigue.

Waking up several hundred times a night, even if you’re unaware of it, can cause your blood pressure to rise, which can lead to more serious consequences, such as heart attack or stroke.

It’s unhealthy to have your breathing interrupted like this. Snoring can be difficult for a relationship, and the repercussions can cause many undesirable consequences to your lifestyle and health. Fortunately there are a number of treatment options available for Sleep Apnea.

Dr. Vickie Greenberg prefers to look at the big picture in her Sleep Apnea cases. As with any health problem, every case is different.  She believes that different treatments work for different people, and is excited about some new options available, like the Fotona Laser.

Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea

The most commonly known treatment option for sleep apnea is the CPAP machine. It is a mask and apparatus that you wear while you sleep. It works by increasing the air pressure in your throat so that the airway doesn’t collapse upon exhaling, which is what causes the snoring.

CPAP machines can be quite effective for snoring and sleep apnea. Some people find the apparatus cumbersome and noisy, and it may difficult to fall asleep with the mask and machine attached. For light sleepers, this solution may not be a solution at all, but more of a hindrance. They can be very effective for those who can adjust to them however.

Another treatment option is a fitted mouthpiece, also to be worn during sleep. They work by repositioning the jaw or tongue so that the airway is not obstructed. These can be effective also. They may be more desirable than the cumbersome mask and tube and machine that a CPAP consists of, and may be sufficient for many cases.

A newer approach to treating Sleep Apnea is the Fotona Laser. This technology is cutting edge, and Dr. Greenberg utilizes it for several procedures in her practice. This is a non-surgical “rejuvenating” laser, which tightens the tissue in the palate by enhancing collagen. This widens out the airway, lessening the source of the airway obstruction that causes the snoring.

Which Option is Best for You

Dr. Greenberg looks at each Sleep Apnea cases individually. Every patient is different, with different lifestyles, and different consequences as a result of their Sleep Apnea. A treatment that works beautifully for one patient may not be desirable or effective for another. And every patient deserves the personalized and unique care that is necessary to improve the quality of their sleep and lives.

There is no reason to keep suffering with difficulties in sleeping! Snoring can be difficult for entire families, and so can constant fatigue, which leads to other health issues.

If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, or think you may have a sleep Apnea Diagnosis, make an appointment with Dr. Vickie Greenberg today! She offers free consultations to first time visitors.

Best Orthodontic Technology in Pasadena

Orthodontics is so much more than metal braces on a teenager. With advances in technology, and a deeper understanding of how the body works in synergy with itself, orthodontics can be used to treat a myriad of issues other than crooked teeth.

Dr. Vickie Greenberg works passionately to improve not just the smiles, but the lifestyles of her patients. She is a Diamond Status Invisalign provider, having completed thousands of Invisalign cases in her impressive 25 year career.

She specializes in TMJ and Jaw Pain, as well as Sleep Therapy, and she credits much of her success in these specialties to the superior technology she invested in for her practice.

Here is an overview of some of Dr. Greenbergs technology, and how she uses it in her orthodontics practice for issues other than straightening teeth.

Technology for TMJ and Jaw Pain

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) or Jaw Pain is one of those things that you don’t truly understand until you’ve experienced it yourself. It can be extremely painful, making it difficult to chew, swallow, or speak, and can decrease the quality of your life.

The i-Cat FLX, amazing imaging technology, can detect the issues that are causing your jaw pain more efficiently and accurately than older imaging technology ever could. The images are clear, precise, and extremely detailed. This makes it much easier for Dr. Greenberg to create a very specific and detailed treatment plan to eliminate your TMJ effectively, and for good.

Technology for Sleep Therapy and Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a condition marked by difficulties with breathing during sleep, and it is often diagnosed because of excessive snoring.  Snoring is joked about in comic strips and sitcoms, but it’s actually a serious condition that can be detrimental to one’s health.

Sleep Apnea is usually caused by an obstruction in the airway, making it difficult to breathe. When this happens during sleep, the patient will stop breathing altogether momentarily, sometimes as often as hundreds of times a night!

The patient may not be aware of this happening at the time, but will feel the results in the form of fatigue, inability to concentrate, irritability, and all the other things that can happen when you don’t get a good night’s sleep.

Dr. Greenberg specializes in sleep therapy, and she uses the Fotona Laser for many of her cases. It’s a laser gentle enough to use on the soft tissues of the mouth, and she can tighten the skin in the soft palate in order to reduce that constriction of the airway. It is safe, painless, and the results can last for up to a year.

Dr. Vickie Greenberg-The Best Orthodontist in Pasadena and Altadena

When it comes to technology in the Orthodontics profession, Dr. Vickie Greenberg has raised the bar. She is constantly looking out for the cutting-edge equipment that is going to make her job easier, and her patients lives better.

Why Do Adults Need Orthodontics?

When one hears the word “orthodontics” they tend to conjure up an image of a teenager with a mouthful of metal braces. Teenagers wearing braces is still a common sight to see, but Invisalign is rapidly catching up as a sensible, convenient, and safe way to effectively straighten teeth-for adults too!

Dr. Vickie Greenberg was recently awarded the title of Diamond Status Invisalign Provider, and she successfully completes hundreds of Invisalign cases every single year for patients of all ages. If you or somebody you know is searching for the best Invisalign Doctor in the San Gabriel Valley, then you’ve come to the right place!

Adults and Orthodontics

Your teeth have a lot to do with your overall health. When your teeth are straight and your bite is even, it’s easier to keep your teeth clean and properly cared for.

As you get older your teeth start to shift around. That’s why it’s important to schedule regular visits to your dentist and orthodontist in order to stay on top of these changes and to get the treatment you need before your case becomes more complicated, and therefore more expensive to treat.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking pride in your appearance, especially as you get older. Your smile is one unbeatable way to retain a youthful appearance no matter how old you are! When your teeth are properly aligned, and your bite is even, that means your jaw is strong. When your jaw is firmly in place, it holds up your face, minimizing a slackening jaw line.

It’s not just about appearances though. As you age, it becomes increasingly important to eat the right foods and get enough sleep. A healthy smile will enable you to eat the foods you need to stay healthy, as well as facilitate a healthy airflow so that you’re getting the proper oxygen needed to sleep deeply at night.

It’s never too late to get the orthodontic treatment you need in order to make aging a little bit easier, and to do it feeling healthy and strong.

Best Technology in Orthodontics

Dr. Greenberg makes it a priority to always provide her patients with the best of care, and that means using the latest cutting-edge technology.

Dr. Greenberg uses the Fotona Laser for snoring and sleep apnea treatment. It is a safe and painless way to tighten up the tissues of the soft palate, which are often responsible for obstructing the airway, causing snoring or difficulty breathing during sleep.

The procedure is safe and painless, and the results often last for up to a year!

The Fotona Laser can also be used for teeth whitening. It is the quickest, safest, and most effective teeth whitening procedure currently on the market. It uses a unique wavelength that doesn’t heat up your teeth (causing damage) like other whitening procedures do.

When it comes to the health of your teeth, and your safety and comfort, Dr. Greenberg will only settle for the best technology and equipment.
