Say Hello to Sleep Apnea Relief

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Sleep apnea is a common disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. While continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is the most common treatment for sleep apnea, there are alternative options that may be effective for some patients. Our Texas Dental Sleep Services team is here to help you find the proper treatment you need. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_single_image image=”1411″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle” el_class=”reverse”][vc_column][vc_row_inner content_placement=”middle” el_class=”reverse-children”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_single_image image=”1433″ align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

CPAP Therapy

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP therapy), is the most commonly prescribed treatment for sleep apnea. It’s a machine that works by delivering a constant, steady flow of air to your nasal passages through a mask that’s worn while you sleep. 

Though effective, many patients complain that their CPAP machine is loud, uncomfortable, and awkward to use. The mask also needs to be removed and reattached each time you get up during the night. The number of restrictions produced by the machine often causes patients to stop using their CPAP altogether.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row color_scheme=”alternate” el_class=”reverse-children”][vc_column][vc_row_inner content_placement=”middle” el_class=”reverse-children”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Oral Appliance Therapy

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Research and clinical experience have confirmed that customized oral appliances are an appropriate alternative treatment for a significant number of patients afflicted with sleep apnea. These devices gently shift your jaw forward, keeping the airway open while you sleep to provide relief from sleep apnea symptoms.

Oral appliances are custom-made to fit your mouth and can be used to treat snoring, sleep apnea, and upper airway resistance syndrome. They’re silent, discreet, and easy to use for maximum convenience.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_image_slider ids=”1819,1415″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle” el_class=”reverse”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_single_image image=”1432″ align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Frequently Asked Questions

[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title=”Does a CPAP machine really work?” tab_id=”1600201469757-62cd4b84-4982″][vc_column_text]Yes, CPAP therapy works! When fitted and used correctly, CPAP is an effective method of treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It will only work if the mask and air pressure are properly adjusted to your individual needs. CPAP must be worn every time you sleep, and removed and reattached each time you get up at night.

However, many patients dislike their CPAP and stop using it altogether because it’s awkward and uncomfortable. Several sleep dentists offer oral appliances as a small, quiet, and more convenient alternative to CPAP therapy. These appliances are a great way to tackle sleep apnea symptoms, allowing you to get the good night’s rest you deserve.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Are there any side effects to using CPAP?” tab_id=”1600201469785-a2cca7f9-1bc2″][vc_column_text]Yes, there are several minor and short-term side effects of CPAP therapy, but they should subside within a few days after stopping use. Some of these include:

[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Is an oral sleep appliance right for me?” tab_id=”1600201500798-68687c37-de6f”][vc_column_text]Oral appliance therapy is an effective alternative to CPAP for patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA. This oral device is custom-made to perfectly fit your unique bite, providing greater comfort and adjustability than CPAP. It’s quiet, discreet, and best of all, it doesn’t require you to wear an uncomfortable mask overnight.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Will my insurance cover the cost of treatment?” tab_id=”1600201527964-f18cc58a-c591″][vc_column_text]Some insurance providers will pay for a portion of your treatment for sleep apnea, but others do not. We recommend contacting your provider ahead of time to get a complete understanding of your coverage. Several sleep dental practices can assist you with billing your insurance company and help you make the most of your benefits. You can also ask the dental office if they offer flexible payment options to ensure each patient receives the quality care they deserve.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”5/6″ offset=”vc_col-md-offset-2 vc_col-md-8 vc_col-sm-offset-1″][vc_column_text]
