This common condition brings a unique stress into your family’s life—not just for those who experience it, but for loved ones too. Our dentist is here to offer oral health solutions to guarantee you undisturbed nights and serene mornings.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is more than just loud snoring. This common yet serious sleep disorder involves repeatedly interrupted breathing during sleep. The result is a fragmented sleep pattern and lower oxygen levels, affecting your overall health and well-being. If you wake up tired after a full night’s sleep, feel drowsy during the day, or have a partner complaining about your snoring, it’s perhaps time to check with your doctor and our dentist about sleep apnea.

How Can Our Frisco, TX, Dentist Help?

You might wonder what dentistry has to do with sleep. It turns out quite a lot! Dentists are often the first healthcare professionals to notice signs of sleep apnea since many symptoms are connected to your oral health. At Hunt Family Dentistry, we’re not just about teeth; we care for every aspect of your smile, even while you’re dreaming. With our sleep apnea solutions, you can experience the following benefits:

  • Say Hello to Energized Mornings: With improved quality of sleep, you’ll feel rejuvenated, alert, and ready to take on your day with a spring in your step.
  • A Heartier Health: Untreated sleep apnea can put you at risk of heart conditions, strokes, and even diabetes. Getting care protects your whole body’s health.
  • Snore No More: Bid adieu to loud, chronic snoring, earning a silent cheer from your partner or anyone sharing your roof. After all, everyone deserves a good night’s sleep.
  • Tailored for Comfort: Our treatments are customized for your specific needs to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.

Custom Sleep Apnea Night Guards

Although night guards are more commonly known as a great treatment for TMJ disorder, we can also create ones to help with your sleep apnea. These custom oral appliances are designed to prevent your airway from becoming blocked. They work by adjusting the position of your jaw and tongue. By just wearing this perfectly fitted guard, you get relief for uninterrupted zzz’s!

Airway Therapy

Peaceful slumber is possible with airway therapy. Continuous positive airway therapy, a.k.a. CPAP, is one of the most effective ways to address sleep apnea. You wear a mask over your nose and/or mouth while you sleep, and the machine gently pushes air through your airways to keep them open.

With this method, your breathing doesn’t pause while you’re sleeping, leading to a more restorative night’s sleep. At Hunt Family Dentistry, we work closely with specialists to provide support and guidance on using CPAP machines, making the transition as smooth as possible for our patients.
