Sleep Apnea Treatment in Houston, TX
We’re concerned about the overall health of our patients, including their sleep health. Many people suffer needlessly from dangerous sleep disruptive disorders that keep them from getting enough oxygen while sleeping. The risk of heart attack is 23 times more likely than average with a sleep disorder. In fact, 92% of stroke victims unknowingly live suffer from sleep apnea before having a stroke. Our training allows us to offer patients education and treatment surrounding sleep health in a simple, cost-effective way.
Research suggests that more than twelve million Americans have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Most cases often go undiagnosed and can lead to serious health consequences. This includes diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and traffic accidents related to drowsy driving. Dentistry serves a vital role in treating this silent epidemic. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends oral appliances as primary treatment of mild to moderate OSA and patients with severe sleep apnea who can’t tolerate their CPAP.
