SLEEP APNEA

There’s No Reason To Live With Tooth Loss.

Sleep-disordered breathing such as snoring and sleep apnea can be managed with something as simple as a custom mouthpiece. If you always feel tired or your sleep partner complains of snoring, it’s time to speak to a professional. But where should you turn first? Your doctor? A pulmonologist? If you’re due for a dental checkup, our DeSoto dentist can help!

Dr. Varkey talks about diagnosing sleep apnea, common and uncommon symptoms, and how to monitor it both in-office and with a device you can use at home.

Oral Sleep Appliances

Unlike CPAP equipment that forces air into your lungs, an oral sleep appliance opens your airway naturally. The custom-made mouthpiece positions your lower jaw so that soft tissues don’t block off the back of your throat.

When you wear your sleep appliance, there’s no bulky equipment to get in the way. Instead, you can breathe normally and see an improvement in your sleep quality as quickly as the first night’s use.

Advantages of Oral Sleep Apnea Appliances

  • Discreet
  • Quiet
  • Doesn’t bother others around you
  • Easy to travel with
  • Can be combined with CPAP
  • Ideal for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • May eliminate the need for a CPAP
