Sleep Apnea Solutions: Breathe Better. Sleep Better. Feel Better.

Do you snore? You may be suffering from sleep apnea, which can cause health problems if left untreated.

Our team of specialists in Liberty, MO, will work with you to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you. We offer oral appliance therapy to ensure you get back to healthy and restful sleep.



Understanding Obstructive Sleep Apnea


Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing while you sleep. These disruptions can last for several seconds to minutes and often occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour. Then, normal breathing starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound.

Sleep apnea is most often a chronic condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses, you’ll move out of deep sleep and into a light sleep. When your sleep cycle is disrupted, your quality of sleep is poor, which makes you tired during the day.

With untreated sleep apnea, you may experience excessive daytime sleepiness and sleep deprivation that can have many harmful consequences. For example, it can lead to high blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke, and other health problems.

Oral appliance therapy works by holding the lower jaw slightly forward to increase airway space and reduce airway obstruction, which causes sleep apnea. Oral appliance therapy is a less invasive alternative to a CPAP machine that is often more comfortable for patients.

Snoring is Affecting My Relationship


If you’re in a relationship, you know that communication is key. But what happens when one partner’s snoring starts to disrupt the sleep of the other, causing one or both of you to have disrupted sleep? Over time, this can lead to resentment and frustration, putting a strain on the relationship.

Snoring is a common problem that can affect both men and women. It can be a nuisance to your bed partner and mean that neither gets enough sleep. Sometimes, snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that can increase your risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

Don’t let sleep disorders and poor sleep disrupt your relationship.  We are here to offer help and snoring treatment solutions!
