Snoring Can Affect Anyone

According to the Sleep Foundation, approximately 57% of men, 40% of women, and 27% of children are affected by snoring. Snoring typically worsens with age and when left untreated. Consistent snores can be a symptom of the sleep disorder obstructive sleep apnea, which affects millions worldwide and carries a host of severe risks. 

The Risks of Untreated Snoring

Day-to-Day Harm

Uninterrupted sleep is connected to clear thinking, memory, and decision-making. When you consistently snore, your regular sleep pattern is disrupted. This harms your cognitive function in a variety of ways and can make you drowsy and unable to focus. Necessary tasks like driving and working are made difficult by snoring and poor sleep quality.

Our Powerful Treatments

When you snore, you are putting yourself and your bed partner at risk for developing health conditions related to poor sleep quality. Fortunately, our Austin dental practice offers several treatments for snoring, such as:
A good night's sleep is the first step to having a great day.
A good night's sleep is the first step to having a great day.

VIO2 Mouth Tape

Mouth breathing can cause you to snore and develop other oral health issues. Our dentist wanted to address these concerns, so he developed VIO2 mouth tape with the help of other experts. This specialty mouth tape promotes healthy nasal breathing, which is key for better sleep, oral health, and bodily immunity. VIO2 mouth tape can help you receive the rejuvenating sleep you deserve.

Vivos System

Oral appliance therapy is a tried-and-true method for alleviating snoring; however, traditional devices require lifelong usage to keep airways open. The Vivos System shifts the position of the teeth and jaws to provide a permanent solution to snoring and sleep apnea. After less than two years of using the Vivos System, patients no longer require oral appliance therapy and they and their bed partner can sleep peacefully.

OPTISLEEP

OPTISLEEP is an effective oral appliance for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. It is a great alternative to CPAP machines or surgery. OPTISLEEP adjusts jaw position to open airways and relax throat muscles, which allows patients to breathe easily. We use Axeos CBCT technology to fit patients with OPTISLEEP. Axeos is a cutting-edge X-ray machine that provides us with incredibly precise dental imaging without sacrificing comfort. It can take pictures of your airways, showing us your obstruction and the effects of your oral appliance therapy.

ASA With Invisalign

We offer The Aligner Sleep Appliance® (ASA), which is a device that can be worn over clear aligners like Invisalign. The ASA is worn over your aligners as you sleep to support the jaw in a mild forward position, combating both simple snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Pairing ASA with Invisalign can help you solve multiple issues at once. Dr. Ip offers free consultations for Invisalign patients.

How We
Diagnose Snoring

/

Oftentimes, Dr. Ip can accurately treat your snoring after a physical exam at our Austin, TX, office. In more severe cases, we may use digital imaging technology to evaluate your airways. For a more in-depth examination of your snoring condition, Dr. Ip will refer you to a trusted specialist so you can complete an overnight sleep study and he can develop an effective treatment plan.
