For those suffering from sleep apnea, it’s very easy to forget just how good they can feel when they are getting enough rest every night. Also, for those who are already receiving treatment with a CPAP machine, they often believe that the loud, uncomfortable machine is their only recourse. With oral appliance therapy, we can not only improve your sleep quality tremendously, but safeguard your mental and physical health as well, all without the use of a CPAP.
Get the Quality of Sleep You Need
People with sleep apnea often think that they are sleeping through the entire night; but often, the quality of that sleep prevents them from actually getting any real rest. However, after a patient has begun treatment with us, not only will they be able to sleep longer, but deeper as well, so they can go through a complete sleep cycle multiple times, which is essential to feeling rested and restored the next day.
Feel More Youthful
Sleep deprivation caused by sleep apnea can literally age you overnight. Sufferers often feel like they have absolutely no energy, so as a result, their capacity at work and ability to pursue their goals quickly diminishes, which can often lead to depression. Once we have gotten a patient’s sleep apnea under control, they’re usually amazed by how much energy they have. Everything, especially getting up in the morning, quickly seems much easier, and life becomes filled with opportunities instead of obstacles.
Sleep apnea often brings on terrible mood swings and a lack of emotional control that can make a person very unpleasant to be around, which can severely harm both personal and professional relationships. Thanks to sleep apnea treatment, jobs and marriages are often saved because patients are finally able to be themselves without the weight of chronic exhaustion on their shoulders every day.
Sleep apnea can rob you of both your mental and physical health; but with treatment from SLEEPwell Longview, we can protect every aspect of your life you hold dear. We have countless stories of people’s lives drastically improving thanks to sleep apnea therapy, and our goal is to provide those kinds of positive outcomes to everyone who comes to see us.
If frequent exhaustion, sleep apnea, or a CPAP machine is preventing you from living your best life, we know how to help, so please don’t hesitate to give us a call today.

How Can a Dentist Help with Sleep Apnea?
This is a very common question our office gets every day, and it’s a good one! Sleep apnea actually occurs in the mouth and throat, and in order to treat it, a doctor needs to have a deep working knowledge of oral anatomy—just like a dentist! With special training in the field of sleep dentistry, Dr. Vaca and Dr. Kirby are able to take their vast dental knowledge and apply it to sleep apnea treatment, mostly in the form of oral appliance therapy. With this, all a patient has to do is wear a small mouthpiece to bed each night to breathe normally while they sleep. This approach is safe, convenient, and it provides a wonderful alternative to the traditional CPAP. Also, it’s so versatile that it can even be used with a CPAP for combined therapy.
