Waco Snoring and CPAP Alternatives
DO YOU HATE YOUR CPAP? DO YOU OR YOUR PARTNER SNORE?
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR CPAP ALTERNATIVES?
Welcome to Waco Snoring and CPAP Alternatives!
We are the only practice in the Waco area that is Residency trained in Dental Sleep Medicine at the U.C.L.A. Orofacial Pain Dental Sleep Medicine Program.
Our practice is dedicated to providing effective,comfortable Oral Appliances for Obstructive Sleep Apnea patients who cannot tolerate their CPAP machines. These Oral Appliances also effectively treat Snoring problems. They are considered medical devices and may be covered by your medical insurance plan.
CPAP machines effectively treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea when they are used regularly. However, they can be difficult to use, and many patients find the masks and hoses associated with the CPAP unit uncomfortable. Patients also may find that their bed partner is disturbed by not only the mask and hoses, but also by the noise the machines make. Those patients who travel frequently may find the CPAP units inconvenient to take through security checkpoints. Individuals who spend time pursuing outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, and hunting may not have access to electrical connections to power their CPAP machines.
Waco Snoring and CPAP Alternatives can help with these CPAP problems!
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a type of breathing disorder which is a potentially life threatening condition characterized by brief interruptions of breathing and decreased oxygen flow to the brain during sleep. Along with the generally decreased quality of life, people who suffer from sleep apnea may also experience an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, depression, Alzheimer's like memory loss, and fatigue. They may fall asleep while driving or at work and feel chronically tired.

- Loud or chronic snoring
- Long pauses in breathing during the night
- Episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
- Excessive daytime tiredness and irritability
- Decreased intimacy
- High blood pressure
