Sleep Apnea Kerrville
Insomnia or Falling Asleep all day long?
Sometimes we make fun of snoring - but it can be a sign of sleep apnea. Sleep Apnea can reduce life expectancy by 20 years if left untreated. It also increases the risk of stroke and heart attack.
You might have sleep apnea - and a simple dental device could make all the difference.
Sleep Apnea Kerrville is dedicated to help people manage insomnia, snoring and obstructive sleep apnea with dental appliances. The therapy we provide is sleep evaluations, sleep monitoring devices and a custom appliance selection and fabrication. Sleep Apnea Kerrville also offers oral appliance therapy. This is an affordable and comfortable alternative to the air breathing machines (CPAP) that have been used for so long.

Understanding Sleep Apnea
We are passionate about helping people who suffer from sleep disorders and recognize the symptoms before they turn into serious consequences. Snoring is the most physically noticeable precursor to identifying a person with sleep apnea. It is important to realize that most people with sleep apnea will snore; however, not all snorers have sleep apnea. Snoring is defined as an obstruction in the airway that can cause loud sounds and vibrations. Unlike snoring, sleep apnea is caused by disruptions in the airflow that prevent a person from breathing periodically throughout the night. Sometimes a patient experiences several hundred such episodes a night. Consequently, sleep apnea can be identified through snoring, but it is a far more dangerous problem if left untreated.
Many people are unaware of the waking episodes caused by sleep apnea. However, snoring is a common warning sign, as is daytime sleepiness.
