Sleep Apnea in North Austin

Waking up frequently each night, or being kept up by a snoring partner often has a common culprit: sleep apnea. Many choose to visit a medical doctor for help, but they’re left with a costly bill. Dr. Scaff has good news: he can help, and no surgery is required!

Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition triggered by the loss of tone in the back of the throat during sleep. As a person enters sleep, the upper airways can become blocked, restricting oxygen flow. Some may notice symptoms that can include persistent snoring, tossing and turning, and even waking up gasping for air.

Sufferers of sleep apnea also note daytime sleepiness, dry mouth or throat in the mornings, fatigue, moodiness, or headaches.

A Non-invasive Solution

At Brian F. Scaff DDS, the team is happy to offer a non-invasive solution to combat the effects of snoring and certain types of sleep apnea.

A custom-fit jaw device may offer fast and effective results for snoring and mild sleep apnea. This device works by gently pulling the jaw forward, which opens the airway and allows a person to breathe more freely.

Oral sleep devices have a number of advantages over CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines in that they are portable, less obtrusive, make no noise, and are not reliant on a power source.
