FOUNDER + DIRECTOR OF

MAXIMIZING  BREATHING,  BEAUTY + FUNCTION

“There are many modalities being used worldwide to address dentofacial disharmonies, sleep-disordered breathing, apnea, and other airway conditions.

 

Although the success rates of some of these procedures are high across the field, the actual cure rate is shockingly low.

 

That is why I am so excited to be a part of  this amazing team at

The Breathe Institute to improve the outcomes through innovative, safe,

and effective solutions for our patients worldwide."

CARE MODEL

 

MINIMALLY-INVASIVE MAXILLARY EXPANSION (MSE)

Practicing out of The Breathe Institute in Los Angeles, CA, Dr. Coppelson is a global leader in minimally-invasive techniques for maxillary expansion. He regularly lectures and performs research on the most cutting-edge and minimally-invasive techniques in maxillary expansion. Our goal is to provide effective and safe surgical adjuncts to improve your nasal breathing and expand your tongue space.

CORRECTIVE JAW SURGERY (MMA)

Dr. Coppelson brings you a comprehensive dental education, medical education, 6 years of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery training, and a fellowship in Advanced Maxillofacial Surgery to every case, offering the highest quality of care in corrective jaw surgery with a discerning focus in esthetics, facial balance, occlusion, and most importantly your airway. We only use the most state-of-the-art tools and custom titanium hardware- ensuring optimal results with a more comfortable post-operative healing period. 

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth. They're a long-term solution that is imbedded in your jawbone, just like your natural teeth. Plus, unlike fixed bridges or removable dentures, dental implants will not affect neighboring healthy teeth or lead to bone loss in the jaw. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime. Dental implants are typically made of titanium, however, based on your case and preference, Dr. Coppelson is proud to offer metal-free implants in his practice. 

ANESTHESIA

Dr. Coppelson is highly trained and certified by the State of California to administer all forms of anesthesia. Pain and anxiety control, using various techniques of regional (local) anesthesia, all forms of sedation, and general anesthesia. For most patients, these forms of anesthesia can safely be performed for in-office surgical procedures. 

DENTAL EXTRACTION

In certain cases, wisdom teeth- also known as third molars- should be removed. These cases, along with other oral surgery procedures, can be performed under a variety of anesthesia techniques. Dr. Coppelson is extensively trained to safely provide local anesthesia, all forms of sedation and general anesthesia. 

TEMPOROMANDIBULAR

JOINT DISORDER (TMJ)

Once TMJ disorders are correctly diagnosed, treatment may range from conservative dental and medical care to complex surgery. Depending on the diagnosis, treatment may include botox injections, short-term drugs for pain and muscle relaxation, bite or splint therapy, and even stress management counseling. Surgery can involve either arthroscopy or repair of damaged tissue by a direct surgical approach.

Surgery can involve either arthroscopy or repair of damaged tissue by a direct surgical approach. 

EXPOSE + BOND

Orthodontic treatment typically involves placement of brackets on to teeth and moving them into alignment.  Sometimes a tooth may be stuck or buried underneath the gums and require surgery to place a bracket on the tooth to pull it into place over time.  This procedure is called an expose and bond because the tooth is first exposed by an incision through the gums, and then a bracket is bonded or glued on to the tooth.

New Research

Dr. Coppelson has a keen interest in research. He has published book chapters and research articles in the most prestigious journals in his field. He maintains ongoing research related to sleep-related breathing disorders.

Sam Franklin Before and After

"I was so used to sleeping...just slackjawed...but now it's no problem, there's no restriction for air through my nose, so I can just keep my lips closed at night. That has been massive in my sleep quality. Less anxiety throughout the day in general. That's been the most significant improvement in my quality of life, and it has been very significant!"

"I had a procedure done with Dr. Coppelson a few months ago and it was by far the best care I've ever had the privilege of receiving from a doctor. Not only was he extremely attentive and knowledgeable, but for someone like myself who's never undergone a procedure before, Dr. Coppelson made me feel comfortable and prepared from start to finish. Not to mention, the procedure went by in a flash! I was back at home recovering before i even realized that it was over!

I had absolutely no issues with the surgery itself nor the recovery. It was quick, easy and PAINLESS. When i think back to my surgery date, I only have fond memories of Dr. Coppelson's kind-hearted personality and overall impeccable care."

"I came to see Dr. Coppelson to remove my wisdom teeth which were causing me some pain/discomfort and my dentist recommended I get then removed ASAP. Dr. Coppelson met with me, thoroughly went over my medical history and CT scan, answered all my questions, and calmed my nerves. 

On the day of the procedure, Dr. Coppelson made me feel safe and supported. He has incredible bedside manner and he is so knowledgeable and attentive. The procedure was seamless and went by so fast. I barely needed any pain medication and felt amazing soon after the procedure! Everything healed perfectly and he made himself available for any follow-up questions I had."
