Sleep Dentistry in Irving & Las Colinas

Our dentist can screen for sleeping disorders and work with your specialist to determine if apnea is present. In some cases, you can even have a take-home sleep study performed for formal diagnosis without an overnight trip to the sleep lab.

Frequently Asked Questions

Conditions that may narrow your airway, such as obesity, enlarged tonsils, or alterations in hormone levels, can elevate your susceptibility to obstructive sleep apnea. In contrast, central sleep apnea occurs when the brain fails to transmit the necessary signals for breathing.

Roughly 39 million adults in the United States experience obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), while an estimated 936 million adults worldwide are believed to grapple with mild to severe OSA. Snoring emerges as a prevalent symptom in up to 94% of individuals with sleep apnea. If left untreated, sleep apnea can give rise to complications in heart health, kidney function, and metabolic well-being.

Individuals dealing with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea have the option of using dental appliances or oral mandibular advancement devices. These devices are designed to prevent the tongue from obstructing the throat and can advance the lower jaw forward, effectively keeping the airway open during sleep.
