Sleep Apnea Treatments and Snore Appliance
Snoring keeps everyone in your home from getting the rest they need – including you. But snoring may be an indicator of a condition known as sleep apnea, which can cause health problems beyond your ability to sleep comfortably. While only your primary physician or a doctor who specializes in sleep disorders can diagnose you with sleep apnea, Dr. Hardy offer sleep apnea treatments in Frisco, Texas. Our doctor can create a custom-fitted appliance that will open your airway and allow you to enjoy a healthy night’s rest.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder marked by interruptions and pauses in breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as the tongue rolling back in the throat or collapsed tissues in the airway. Untreated sleep apnea can contribute to several serious health conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and liver problems.
We recommend that you talk to your doctor, as well as your doctor, if you suffer from the symptoms of sleep apnea. Common signs of sleep apnea include:
- Extreme drowsiness during the day
- Personality changes and irritability
- Difficulty staying asleep
- Awakening with a very dry or sore throat
- Frequent morning headaches
Sleep apnea treatment may depend on the severity of the condition. If you suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, our doctor may recommend an oral appliance. The oral appliance works to treat obstructive sleep apnea by fitting over your teeth and keeping your airway open while you sleep. It can work by preventing the tongue from blocking the air passage or by holding your jaw in a position that prevents airway blockages during sleep.
