Our Effective Sleep Apnea Solutions Help You Sleep Better

Depending on your situation, we can relieve sleep apnea in several ways. In mild cases, you may have success with simply sleeping on your side. For patients who require treatment for relief, we can provide:

  • Custom-made oral appliances that shift your jaw and open up your airway so you’ll be able to breathe easily
  • CPAP machines that assist with breathing throughout the night
  • Nightlase™ lasers to tighten tissue in the back of your throat, preventing airway obstruction

Take a Sleep Apnea Test in the Comfort of Your Own Bed

Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that results in interrupted breathing during sleep. In severe cases, some people stop breathing multiple times a minute throughout the night. This prevents proper, restful sleep. It can also lead to a number of health and concentration problems.

To properly diagnose sleep apnea, most dentists would refer you for overnight observation and testing by a sleep specialist. For your convenience and comfort, we offer a special take-home sleep test system called ARES™. Using the data provided by ARES™, we work closely with a Texas-boarded sleep physician who diagnoses your issue and recommends customized treatments.

If you want to sleep better, call us today at 832-463-1021 for sleep apnea treatment in Houston. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea Treatment

What is sleep apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type of sleep apnea. It occurs when your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat temporarily block your airway during sleep. They relax enough to cut off your air supply and cause you to quit breathing. You’ll wake up long enough to take a few normal breaths before you fall back asleep. This cycle can repeat itself dozens of times an hour.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Not only will sleep apnea disrupt your sleep to the point that you feel fatigued and are unable to concentrate during the day, but this condition has also been linked to several other serious health problems. Sleep apnea can play a role in high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. Treating your sleep apnea now will improve your quality of life and potentially help you live longer.

How is sleep apnea treated?

Sufferers of severe sleep apnea may need a CPAP machine that blows a continuous stream of air through the nose or mouth to keep the airway open. For mild to moderate sleep apnea, we can fit you with a custom oral appliance that will gently move your lower jaw forward to keep your airway unobstructed. We also offer Nightlase treatment that shrinks the soft tissues in the back of your throat to improve air flow.

How does sleep apnea affect the body?

Besides disrupting your sleep patterns and leaving you exhausted during the day, sleep apnea has been linked to several major health concerns. Sleep apnea contributes to heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, and depression. Getting help for sleep apnea now can improve your health and potentially help you live longer.
