You’ve come to the right place if you continually feel tired despite getting enough sleep or if you’re a chronic snorer. These are both symptoms of sleep apnea, a condition that can cause more problems than just disturbing your sleep. Using a custom oral appliance, Sabal Dental offers relief from your Harlingen sleep apnea. Many patients have our team to thank for helping them:Get a Better Night's Sleep Read Transcript
Sleep apnea is often overlooked. It can be very dangerous. It increases the likelihood of strokes, the likelihood of heart attacks. Here at Sabal Dental, we work with several sleep doctors in the area where they can do a sleep test for them.
Sometimes, you know, the gold standard is what's called a CPAP, so continuous positive air pressure, and that's at night. It's hard for a patient to wear that because it really is almost like a Darth Vader mask and it's loud, so the partner isn't really happy sleeping next to them. Sometimes when we're talking with their doc and their sleep doc, we can treatment-plan an appliance to have them not have to wear the CPAP machine. All that does is position their jaw forward a little bit, and that's going to open up that airway, and it's going to help them breathe at night.

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
- High Blood Pressure
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 for sleep apnea or for a routine checkup.
