Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Conroe, TX

At Montgomery Park Dental Care, we are proficient in treating sleep apnea, a condition that impacts as many as one in five Americans. Common symptoms include snoring, fatigue, morning headaches, memory issues, and nocturia. We offer personalized care with custom-fitted oral appliances like the Dorsal, Herbst, and TAP, which enhance airway functionality during sleep. These devices are effective and often more comfortable alternatives to CPAP. Our comprehensive evaluations help us tailor treatment options to effectively alleviate your symptoms.

Diagnosis and Treatment for Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea, a common disorder characterized by intermittent breathing pauses during sleep, often manifests through snoring, fatigue, and morning headaches. At our clinic, Dr. Carolyn, your dentist, begins by evaluating and identifying symptoms of sleep apnea. She then coordinates home sleep tests, which are analyzed by a board-certified sleep physician to confirm your diagnosis. This comprehensive evaluation enables Dr. Carolyn to tailor a treatment plan specifically to your needs, enhancing your overall health and sleep quality.

Our Sleep Apnea Treatment Approach

Our team will work with you to select the right appliance based on your specific needs and circumstances, ensuring the most effective and comfortable treatment possible.

Custom-Fitted Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea

At our clinic, Dr. Carolyn and her team excel in crafting and fitting custom oral appliances, known as mandibular advancement devices, for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea. These tailored devices can significantly improve sleep apnea symptoms, providing an effective and comfortable alternative to CPAP machines.

Types of Oral Appliances We Offer

Dorsal Appliance

One of the effective treatments we provide for mild to moderate sleep apnea is the Dorsal appliance. This device, a type of mandibular advancement device, is custom-fitted by Dr. Carolyn to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness. The Dorsal appliance works by keeping your airway open while you sleep, significantly reducing the symptoms and associated risks of sleep apnea.

Herbst Appliance

Another effective treatment we offer for sleep apnea is the Herbst appliance, a custom-fitted oral device that Dr. Carolyn tailors to each patient’s specific needs. This appliance effectively alleviates symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea by advancing the lower jaw, thereby enhancing airway patency. Our approach with oral appliance therapy ensures a significant reduction in sleep disruptions, allowing our patients to enjoy a restful and healthier sleep.

TAP Appliance (Thornton Adjustable Positioner)

As part of our comprehensive sleep apnea treatments, we offer the TAP Appliance, also known as the Thornton Adjustable Positioner. This custom-fitted oral device is designed to improve your sleep quality by maintaining an open, unobstructed airway throughout the night. The TAP appliance features an adjustable design, allowing Dr. Carolyn to fine-tune it for optimal comfort and effectiveness, ensuring that each patient experiences a significant alleviation of obstructive sleep apnea symptoms.

Oral appliance therapy provides an effective treatment for sleep apnea with several key advantages:

  • Greater comfort and quieter operation compared to CPAP machines.
  • Enhances overall sleep quality.
  • Mitigates the adverse health impacts associated with obstructive sleep apnea.
  • Convenient and easy to use, especially for patients who travel frequently.
