Are you a chronic snorer? Do you feel tired in the morning than when you went to sleep?
Dr. James White provides sleep apnea treatment in Las Vegas, NV. This dental concern occurs when the soft tissues in the mouth relax and collapse towards the back of the throat. The airway becomes momentarily blocked and cuts the flow of oxygen off to the vital organs. Obstructive sleep apnea causes breathing and heart problems. Patients with sleep apnea frequently snore loudly, experience headaches, and have difficulty concentrating. If the most severe cases of sleep apnea are left untreated, sleep apnea could lead to a sudden stroke or heart attack.
Signs of Sleep Apnea
- Consistent, loud snoring
- Waking up to breathe
- Headaches that arise in the morning
- Difficulty concentrating
- Dry mouth
- Feeling excessively tired during the day
- Sleeping with an open mouth

Anyone can be diagnosed with a sleep disorder. However, men over the age of 40 are most commonly diagnosed with sleep apnea. Patients who have a large neck circumference, are overweight, diabetic, have high blood pressure, or have a genetic predisposition are also more prone to developing the condition. Be aware of your risk factors before scheduling a consultation with Dr. White so you can provide more information.
Treating Sleep Apnea
Dr. White offers oral appliance therapy for patients with mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea. Similar to a mouth guard, an oral appliance is custom fit to your particular measurements. This solution opens up the airways and prevents the soft tissue in the back of the throat from collapsing. Oral appliances are also comfortable for patients and allow them to breathe easily during the night. In addition, oral appliance therapy is more discreet and has a higher compliance rate than traditional CPAP machines.
