Have you been told that you snore loudly while you sleep, or that you seem to stop breathing at times through the night? Do you often feel sleepy during the day with no real explanation as to why? You could be suffering from sleep apnea, a disorder that causes your breathing to become shallow or even stop altogether during the night due to your airway being obstructed. Thankfully, Dr. Montgomery and his team can provide help for patients with this condition.
Many people don’t actually know that they have sleep apnea, but the condition is far from harmless. It can cause low levels of oxygen in the blood and can even result in a severe form of congestive heart failure. With a customized dental appliance, we can not only ease your symptoms, but also help you achieve a refreshing night of rest at last.
The most common therapy option for treating sleep apnea is a C-PAP device, but for many patients, the results are not ideal. Patients with more mild forms of the condition can benefit significantly from using an oral appliance, such as the customized TAP oral appliance we offer here at our Plano office. While we can’t test you to see if you actually have sleep apnea, Dr. Montgomery will be happy to refer you to a trusted sleep specialist who can evaluate your condition and provide testing.
