Sleep Apnea Treatment in Dallas
Prevent the Dangers of Obstructed Sleep
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, you probably suffer from many restless nights, and the people around you who are trying to sleep can be affected too. Sleep apnea can come in many forms, including snoring, cessations of breathing, and waking up frequently throughout the night. While lack of sleep is concerning in and of itself, sleep apnea can also prevent oxygen from getting to the brain, triggering high blood pressure and even diabetes. Our dental team at Lynn Dental Care offers effective oral appliance treatment for symptoms of sleep apnea, helping you and your loved ones get the restful sleep you deserve.
If you suffer from sleep apnea and would like to learn more about our treatment options, call our office today at (972) 954-4434 or reach us through the contact section below. There is no need to spend another restless night!
Our Convenient Oral Appliance Solution
Sleep apnea can be treated in a variety of ways, with a CPAP machine being the most common. A CPAP machine involves wearing a mask while you sleep so air is continually pushed down the airway. It has proven to be effective, but many patients have found themselves intolerant to the machines and unable to sleep with the mask or noise. That’s why our practice specifically focuses on the convenient oral appliance mouthguard. To help our patients with their sleep apnea, we create a customized oral appliance mouth guard that gently repositions the jaw so the soft tissues of the mouth are not collapsing into the airway. Oral appliances are less obstructive, quieter, and even more convenient to travel with when compared to CPAP machines.
Take a Step Towards a Restful Sleep
While oral appliances can help patients who experience sleep apnea, these are only therapies, not cures. Patients who use oral appliances will need to sleep with them every night in order to fully benefit from their effects and experience restful sleep. There are other treatment options, including surgery, weight management programs, and positional therapy, but many of our patients find oral appliances to be the easiest to get used to and for nearly immediate results.
Evaluate Your Airways
At Lynn Dental Care, we use the Eccovision Acoustic Diagnostic Pharyngometer and Rhinometer to screen for sleep apnea, and we have easy and effective methods for treating it. When you come in for an appointment, we get an excellent view of your airways, and the Eccovision device lets us take an even closer look. If you are snoring or having trouble sleeping, we can map out the size, structure, and collapsibility of your oral and nasal airway and determine whether or not an oral appliance can help you with your sleep apnea.
Using technology that is similar to a ship’s sonar, we use soundwaves to examine your airway – from your nose through your esophagus. The test is not invasive and only takes 2 to 5 minutes to complete. After the test, we will be able to predict how our oral appliances will help you – with 95% certainty.
