Say Goodbye to Sleep Apnea Symptoms

We have a long list of patients who have been able to avoid using a CPAP machine because they’ve instead used a custom-fit oral appliance to minimize or eliminate their sleep apnea problems. If you are a sleep apnea sufferer, we’ll be glad to help you as well.

Here’s how episodes of sleep apnea occur:

  • Your air passages become blocked by your tongue or other soft tissues in your throat.
  • You’ll usually wake up just long enough to take a few normal breaths before dozing off.
  • Most of the time, you won’t even be aware this cycle is happening, although it can repeat itself dozens of times per hour.

A specially made oral appliance will help keep your airway open by adjusting your lower jaw slightly forward. Our appliances are comfortable, plus they’re easy to travel with, unlike a bulky CPAP machine. As a result, you’ll sleep better and snore less, as snoring occurs when air passes across those soft tissues.

With sleep apnea treatment, your overall health will also improve. Obstructive sleep apnea (the most common type) has been linked to serious health issues including heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, and depression

Getting treatment now can improve your quality of life as well as your life expectancy. For help with sleep apnea in Harlingen, call Sabal Dental today at 956-275-7596. You can also schedule online for a sleep apnea consultation or for a routine checkup.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common kind 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 stop you from breathing. You’ll wake up long enough to take a few breaths just before you fall back asleep. This cycle can restart dozens of times an hour.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Not only will sleep apnea interrupt your sleep to the point that you feel fatigued and are unable to focus during the day, but this condition has also been linked to a number of other severe illnesses. Sleep apnea can contribute to hypertension, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. Treating your sleep apnea now will enhance your life and potentially help you live longer.

How is sleep apnea treated?

Those with severe sleep apnea may require a CPAP machine that blows a constant 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 carefully move your lower jaw forward to keep your airway unblocked. Many individuals have benefited from this kind of treatment.
