Sleep Apnea Treatment Options | Austin TX
Having trouble sleeping? Feeling tired when you wake in the morning? Does your sleep partner tell you that you make gasping sounds while you sleep? If you answered yes to these questions, there’s a chance you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a common and potentially serious disorder that involves interrupted breathing patterns during a person’s sleep.
Untreated sleep apnea can result in repeated stops in breathing during your sleep. This prevents your brain and the rest of your body from getting enough rest. Whether your case is mild or quite severe, we understand your frustration and concern. At Prosthodontics of Texas, we answer your questions and offer effective treatment methods that will put your sleep apnea to rest for good.

What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder that involves interrupted breathing patterns during a person’s sleep.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment
We offer many treatment options for sleep apnea, beginning with conservative methods and home instructions before moving on to more significant treatments. Schedule an appointment with us in which we can discuss your sleeping issues and possible treatment options.
Oral Appliance Therapy
Oral appliance therapy involves wearing a customized oral appliance, much like a mouth guard or orthodontic retainer, when you sleep to keep your throat open. In addition to helping with snoring, this effective treatment is a great first step for mild to moderate sleep apnea.
Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Pharr or Dr. Snober so they can assess the complexities of your case and recommend the best approach for your particular situation is the first step. We recognize that each patient is unique, and our interdisciplinary team takes a very comprehensive approach to diagnosis, recommending treatments and therapies, based on the specific needs of each individual patient.
If you have unexplained snoring, sluggishness, or headaches, please call us today. We can arrange for you to have a sleep test and proper diagnosis followed by treatment options. And you can expect to receive dedicated time with Dr. Pharr for a comprehensive consultation about snoring and sleep apnea. Don’t let this unsafe condition interfere with the quality of your life any longer.
