Does the sound of your snoring wake your partner or even you during sleep? If so, you may have sleep apnea. Call Dr. Dan Hoang, Clear Lake City Dentistry in Houston, Clear Lake and Webster at 281-488-1477 to schedule your appointment and learn about your obstructive sleep apnea treatment options.
Sleep apnea is a condition in which your breathing repeatedly pauses while you sleep. When this happens, your body wakes you up to resume breathing. These multiple sleep interruptions prevent you from sleep well, leaving you feeling extra tired during the day. Sleep apnea does more than make you sleepy. When left untreated, it can contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and other long-term health risks.
CPAP - Positive airway pressure machines are used with a variety of breathing masks and are the most wisely used treatment for moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea
Oral Appliance Therapy is the main alternative to CPAP Therapy. These oral devices are used for patients who diagnosed with mild to moderate OSA or for patients who are CPAP intolerated to prevent the airway from collapsing by holding the tongue in position or by sliding.
We collaborate with your physicians, from primary care, cardiologists, ENT and Sleep physicians. We offers a variety of oral appliances that fits like mouthguard, and reposition a patient's jaws and tongue to open up their airway. Dr. Hoang customizes appliance and treat plan for each of our patients, depending on the severity and type of sleep apnea conditions they experience.
