Having Trouble Sleeping?

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner content_placement=”middle” el_class=”reverse-children”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that prevents patients from getting enough sleep at night. Sleep apnea occurs when the body is unable to breathe properly during sleep due to the muscles in the back of the throat blocking the airway. As a result, your body consistently jolts awake during the night. Having sleep apnea during pregnancy is concerning as it can harm both the mother and her unborn baby. 

For patients who are pregnant, the risk of OSA is higher because of the nasal congestion that can develop in their third trimester. Fortunately, at Texas Dental Sleep Services, one of our providers can find an effective solution to protect the health of you and your unborn baby.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_single_image image=”1365″ align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle” color_scheme=”alternate” el_class=”reverse”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Our Effective Treatment Solution

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner content_placement=”middle”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_single_image image=”1819″ align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]If you believe you may be suffering from sleep apnea, our providers highly recommend getting a sleep study done to get the right diagnosis. Once you have your results, one of our providers can help you find the best effective treatment made just for you.

While the most common treatment is a continuous positive airway passage (CPAP) machine, some patients don’t like using it as it’s loud, bulky, and noisy. One providers are proud to offer an alternative to CPAP machines — oral appliance therapy. Many patients prefer the oral appliance to CPAP due to it being customized, quiet, and portable.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle” color_scheme=”alternate” el_class=”reverse”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Frequently Asked Questions

[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title=”Will sleep apnea go away on its own?” tab_id=”1648219907603-1833ba61-996f”][vc_column_text]If you have developed sleep apnea during pregnancy, there’s a possibility that it will go away on its own after you deliver. Since sleep apnea is caused by excess weight, once you’ve delivered, the symptoms should subside. However, we highly recommend seeing one of our providers so they can treat and monitor the symptoms during and after pregnancy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Can lack of sleep affect my baby?” tab_id=”1648219946839-8daf2596-ea9e”][vc_column_text]Yes, lack of sleep can affect your developing fetus. Your sleep quality is an important factor to your developing fetus as it provides the growth of hormones to your developing baby. If you don’t get enough sleep, there won’t be enough growth of hormone to provide which can lead to growth development problems once your baby is born.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle” color_scheme=”alternate” el_class=”reverse”][vc_column width=”1/6″][us_separator size=”small”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
