Sleep Apnea Treatment

Helping You Reduce Symptoms & Breathe Easier

Sleep apnea is a common disorder affecting millions of Americans. It is marked by pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep, and can lead to a wide range of mental and physical complications if not properly diagnosed and treated. At The Comprehensive Dental Group of Houston, we offer a wide range of both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for sleep apnea, and will help you alleviate or eliminate symptoms as you seek to breathe easier at night.

Signs and symptoms that you may have sleep apnea include:

  • Chronic snoring, often interrupted by intermittent periods where breathing ceases altogether
  • Dry mouth or a sore throat when you wake up
  • A headache when you wake up
  • Insomnia
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Frequently waking up from sleep to urinate
  • Memory problems or difficulty concentrating
  • Feelings of irritability, depression, or mood swings
