Sleep Apnea Treatment


Sleep apnea and other sleep-related breathing problems are more common than you think, and they can be more disruptive than you may realize.

Here at Oval Dental, we are dedicated not only to your oral health but your overall well-being. That is why we are excited to offer sleep apnea treatment in Flower Mound, Texas, to help you get the rest you deserve now and protect your health for life.

If you are suffering from the effects of sleep apnea, our prosthodontist, Dr. Virgil Vacarean, can fit you for a custom oral appliance, designed to fit your needs and keep your airway open while you sleep. In the past, the only reliable sleep apnea treatment option was a bulky, loud CPAP machine, which many patients (and their partners!) simply could not tolerate. Now, you can get the rest you need without a face mask or disturbing, mechanical noise. Contact us at 972-355-6042 to learn more!

 
 
 

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is characterized by repeated episodes of obstructed nighttime breathing. Put simply, something gets in the way of your regular breathing, keeping you from sleeping as long or as deeply as is healthy. Close to a quarter of adults over 30 deal with some form of sleep apnea, and many of them do not even realize it! That is because it can be hard to spot without knowing what to look for. Here are some of the common symptoms of sleep apnea:

  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Snoring
  • Stopped breathing during sleep
  • Waking up gasping or choking
  • Dry mouth or sore throat in the morning
  • Morning headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mood changes, depression, irritability
  • High blood pressure
  • Night sweats
And here are some of the common sleep apnea risk factors:
  • Excess weight
  • Narrow airways
  • High blood pressure
  • Chronic nasal congestion
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Family history of sleep apnea
  • Asthma
  • Being male
