Our Sleep Apnea 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:
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.
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.
