Find Out More about Sleep Apnea

A Guide to Sleep Apnea


At least 40 million Americans suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders each year. The majority of these conditions can result in sleep deprivation, which interferes with work, driving, and academics.

What is Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common disorder in which you have intermittent breathing disturbances while you sleep. These breathing pauses can last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes. They might occur 30 times or more in an hour. Typically, normal breathing starts again, oftentimes with a loud choking sound or snort.

As a result of these breathing interruptions, the quality of your sleep is poor, which leads to a host of other consequences such as:

  • Daytime fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Morning headache
  • Difficulty paying attention while awake
  • Insomnia (difficulty staying asleep)
  • Awakening with a dry mouth

If sleep apnea is left untreated, there are health complications that may arise:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Impotence
  • Arrhythmia
  • Stroke

At North Texas Sleep Solutions, Dr. Lauck provides a Quick Self Check below to determine whether you have a sleep disorder and are in need of further care.

Take self check

Quick Self Check

Are you struggling to Breathe when you are sleeping?


Even if you don't THINK you have a problem, take this quick self check

  • Do you SNORE?
  • Are you TIRED during the day?
  • Has anyone seen you CHOKING or GASPING when you sleep?
  • Have you been told you have HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE?
  • Do you have ACID REFLUX?
  • Do you have DIABETES

If you answered YES to more than TWO of the questions give us a call to inquire about home sleep testing.


Use the Epworth Sleepiness Scale

What does Epworth Sleepiness Scale?

How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations, in contrast to feeling just tired? This refers to your usual way of life in recent times. Even if you have not done some of these things recently try to work out how they would have affected you. Use the following scale to choose the most appropriate number for each situation:
# Situation Chance of dozing
1 Sitting and reading
2 Watching TV
3 Sitting inactive in a public place (e.g a theater or a meeting)
4 As a passenger in a car for an hour without a break
5 Lying down to rest in the afternoon when circumstances permit
6 Sitting and talking to someone
7 Sitting quietly after a lunch without alcohol
8 In a car, while stopped for a few minutes in traffic

Our Services


At North Texas Sleep Solutions, we have no bias towards a specific treatment. We’ll guide you towards your appropriate sleep solution to make sure the sleep therapy fits into your lifestyle. We also want to ensure the cost and financing of your sleep apnea treatment is affordable and convenient.

We have three sleep apnea options that Dr. Lauck and our team provide for a sound slumber:

CPAP

Continuous positive airway pressure therapy uses a machine to help a person who has obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which is the most common form of sleep apnea. A CPAP machine increases air pressure in your throat as you’re sleeping so that your airway doesn’t collapse when you breathe in.

Surgery

Involves removing and repositioning excess tissue in the throat to increase the width of the airway. Dr. Lauck uses UPPP (Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty - a surgery to open the upper airways by taking out extra tissue in the throat) and other soft palate procedures as her go-to type of surgery for sleep apnea.

Oral Appliance Therapy

These are convenient and portable, and not only do they treat sleep apnea, they are effective to stop snoring. Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD) are sleep apnea mouthpieces that are custom-crafted by Dr. Lauck using a plastic-like mold that forms to the shape of the patient’s teeth and mouth.

Oral Appliances


Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP)

The TAP is the only mandibular advancement device that can be adjusted easily by the patient or practitioner while in the mouth. This feature allows the patient to always be in control of their treatment.

The unique design also allows the patient to fine-tune their treatment position at home to achieve maximum results.

Features
  • Patient-friendly
  • Superior results
  • Easy to fit
  • Infinitely adjustable
  • Precise control of advancement
  • Interchangeable hooks
  • Freedom for lateral movement
  • More room for tongue
  • Allows lips to close


The TAP® can help prevent conditions linked to sleep apnea:
  • Chronic daytime sleepiness
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Heartburn, reflux
  • Morning headaches
  • Depression

Somnomed appliance

Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance: SomnoDent

A SomnoDent sleep apnea oral appliance is a premium, custom-fitted dental device developed for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. It is an effective, comfortable, and durable alternative to CPAP therapy or corrective surgery. By simply wearing a SomnoDent while sleeping, your lower jaw (mandible) will be moved forward into a comfortable position, allowing relaxation of the tissues at the back of your throat and ensuring the base of your tongue does not collapse and block your airway, giving you a safe and soundless sleep

Herbst Appliance

The Herbst for Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

The Herbst appliance has been used for many years in the treatment of Class II malocclusions in children. With minor modifications, the Herbst appliance has been proven to be effective in the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate OSA. "Adjustability" is the primary advantage of the Herbst appliance in snoring and OSA cases. The post and sleeve mechanism advances the jaw into a forward position. If desired relief is not immediately achieved, this unique appliance design allows for additional forward movement of the mandible

Testimonials


Dana W.

I am very happy with my oral appliance. I've felt so much better since I've started using it! The team here has done an amazing job with throughout the entire process. From my first visit through the followups, they were friendly, professional, and really took the time to explain things to me. I highly recommend North Texas Sleep Solutions if you are looking for sleep solutions!

Randy J.

Before I got the Somnomed I had the TAP's device which worked for my snoring but was very uncomfortable and constrictive, because I couldn't move my jaw. In itself it woke me up every night because it felt like someone was holding my mouth shut. But with the Somnomed, I am able to get all the benefits with the reduction of my snoring as well as the frequent movement, it's more natural, I don't feel as constricted and I sleep better.
