We understand how sleep apnea can impact our lives. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) leads to serious long-term complications, such as high blood pressure and depression. In order to correct the issue and allow our Pearland, TX, patients to sleep better, we may suggest a personalized sleep solution.
What are the Warning Signs of Sleep Apnea?
When should you be concerned about your sleep? People with the disorder may encounter frequent snoring, daytime drowsiness, dry mouth when waking up, and episodes of choking or gasping for air suddenly in the night. Headaches could also indicate trouble. If one or more of these issues reflect your experiences, then you may need to talk to us about a diagnosis. Using a convenient and comfortable home sleep test, we can find out if you require treatment.
How Does A Personalized Sleep Solution Help?
We may prescribe an oral appliance to correct the issue. Our custom-made sleep appliances are worn at night as the patient sleeps. The appliances will move the jaw forward, repositioning it to ensure open airways and prevent any obstruction. As patients breathe freely, they avoid apneic episodes and enjoy a better night’s sleep. Each device will fit comfortably and provide a solution for your sleep apnea troubles.
Sleep Appliances vs. the CPAP Device
Often, we talk to patients that have tried treatment using a CPAP machine. The device involves wearing a mask over the nose and mouth, which connects to a machine. Air is pumped from the machine and through the mask. For many, the mask fits uncomfortably and the device’s noise levels prevent good sleep. The sleep appliance keeps airways open without requiring a cumbersome mask or a loud machine, ensuring a better night’s rest. If you have any questions about treating OSA, or if you think you may benefit from an at-home sleep test, then contact our team today.
