We are a Flower Mound, TX sleep apnea dentist office that can help you regain control over your life. We understand how difficult it can be to go about normal daily activities when you feel completely exhausted. That's the problem with sleep apnea. It makes it difficult for you to ever have the energy you need to work like normal, go for a drive, or even stay awake after dinner. The reason that sleep apnea impacts patients so significantly is that it limits how much oxygen you get while sleeping. Your body depends on oxygen in order to be able to function. If you are grasping for breath as you sleep, the next day, you will wake up feeling tired, and that fatigue will never leave you. Additionally, you could suffer from other health consequences, like high blood pressure. This makes it important to treat your sleep apnea right away and we have a non-invasive solution for doing so.

Learn more about our dental appliances for sleep apnea, call (972) 957-3707 and schedule an appointment with our 75028 dental office. We will examine you, discuss your symptoms, and begin to address the root cause of your sleep apnea. In our office, we treat obstructive sleep apnea. This condition forms because your airways are obstructed while you sleep. This generally occurs because the lower jaw bone muscles are not strong enough to hold the jaw in a forward position while you sleep. As the jaw falls backward at night, the tongue also falls backward and obstructs your airways. This leaves people gasping for breath at night and can also create the massive snoring sounds that could disturb you or your partner.

We can give you a removable oral appliance that will hold your jaw in the forward position while you sleep. Your tongue will then naturally remain forward as well. This oral appliance is incredibly small, designed to fit you perfectly, and comfortable enough to let you sleep without an issue. It is far more comfortable than the alternative CPAP machine, and since it is so discreet, you can carry it with you and use it while traveling. This makes it incredibly easy for you to treat your sleep apnea.

At Bridlewood Dental, Rodger Song, DDS can provide you with this ultra-convenient solution to treat your obstructive sleep apnea. To learn more about an oral appliance or to have one created for you, call (972) 957-3707 today.
