Sleep Apnea Treatment

Dr. Amanda Juarez on Sleep Apnea Read Transcript

Do you wake from a full night’s sleep still feeling tired? Do you experience chronic snoring? You may have sleep apnea. If you think you could benefit from a sleep apnea treatment, contact Houston Uptown Dentists today!

At our Houston, TX dentist office, Dr. Amanda Juarez has been treating sleep apnea since her husband was diagnosed with it. Since then, she has undergone extensive training in sleep apnea treatment, founded Sweet Dreams Sleep Solutions, and has also become Board-eligible for the American Sleep and Breathing Academy.

Sleep Apnea Explained

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 and can lead to a number of additional issues, including health and concentration problems.

Diagnosing Sleep Apnea

To properly diagnose sleep apnea, other dentists would most likely refer you to an overnight observation and testing by a sleep specialist. For your convenience and comfort, our Houston, TX dentist offers a special take-home sleep test system called ARES.

Using the data provided by ARES, a Texas boarded sleep physician diagnoses your particular sleeping issue and recommends customized treatments.

Sleep Apnea Treatments At Houston Uptown Dentists

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

  • Custom-made oral appliances that shift your jaw and help open up your airway
  • CPAP machines that assist patients with breathing throughout the night
  • NightlaseTM lasers to tighten tissue in the back of your throat, preventing airway obstruction

If you want to relieve your snoring and sleep better, call our Houston, TX dentist – Dr. Juarez at 832-463-1021 for a sleep apnea treatment. You can also use our online form.
