Free Sleep Apnea Consultation

While occasionally viewed as funny or as just a normal part of the sleeping process, snoring can actually present a serious threat to your long-term health. Sleep apnea, a significant sleep disorder, causes your breathing to start and stop during rest. In most cases, snoring ranks as the number one sign and symptom of obstructive sleep apnea, a life-long condition that if left untreated can increase your risk of heart failure, high blood pressure, stroke, depression and diabetes.

As a sleep dentist in McKinney, TX, Dr. Paul Lawrence can help if you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Lawrence offers a Free Sleep Apnea Consultation to help patients determine if they demonstrate the signs of obstructive sleep apnea, such as snoring, daytime drowsiness and trouble focusing. Using an at-home diagnostic device, Dr. Lawrence can determine whether you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea after just one night’s rest. No overnight visit to a sleep clinic or uncomfortable tests required!

Once Dr. Lawrence determines the cause of your sleep disorder, he can eliminate snoring with the use of a noninvasive sleep device that successfully treats mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea. Unlike bulky CPAP devices that can make sleeping cumbersome, the sleep devices prescribed by Dr. Lawrence fit comfortably into the mouth, causing no interference with your nightly sleep schedule!

Since the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea only occur during rest, many patients don’t know they suffer from the sleep disorder unless a partner informs them of their nightly habits. While snoring is often the most obvious sign of obstructive sleep apnea, other common symptoms can provide Dr. Lawrence with the information needed to make a diagnosis.

During your Free Sleep Apnea Consultation, Dr. Lawrence will ask a variety of basic questions to determine if you demonstrate the symptoms and signs of sleep apnea. Answering these questions will help Dr. Lawrence determine whether obstructive sleep apnea may be the cause of your sleep disorder.

The most common sign of obstructive sleep apnea include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Long pauses in your breathing during sleep
  • Abruptly awakening from sleep followed by shortness of breath
  • Sore throat or dry mouth after waking
  • Headaches after waking
  • Trouble staying or getting to sleep
  • Excessive sleepiness during the daytime
  • Problems focusing or paying attention
  • Irritability

Patients who experience these symptoms on a nightly basis should undergo testing to determine what type of sleep disorder they may suffer from. As your sleep dentist in McKinney, Dr. Lawrence offers the convenience of an in-home sleep test that can determine the cause of your sleep disorder after one night’s rest!
