Snoring & Sleep Apnea in Prosper
Helping You Get a Good Night's Sleep
At Bietsch Orthodontics, we know how important a good night's sleep can be to a patient's health. When a patient struggle to stay asleep because of snoring or sleep apnea disruptions, a good night's sleep can become a difficult task. Sleep apnea is caused by constriction of the airway while sleeping and snoring can also accompany this problem. Not all snorers have sleep apnea, however snoring can also be remedied with the same type treatment: oral appliance therapy.
Dr. Bietsch can offer you a private consultation for sleep apnea and snoring treatment. Everyone in your household may be suffering from your loud, rattling snores and we want to help you with options including a custom-made oral appliance (like a night guard) that is worn in the mouth to reposition the jaw while you sleep and is the least invasive way to treat sleep apnea.
Call us today at (972) 934-6222 to schedule your appointment and discuss your treatment options with Dr. Bietsch.
How Does Snoring & Sleep Apnea Treatment Work?
Oral appliance therapy, such as a night guard, is the least aggressive treatment for sleep apnea. With the correct oral appliance for sleep apnea, our patients can prevent or not add to other health problems, including:
- Loud snoring
- Heart conditions
- High blood pressure
- Weight gain
What to Expect
After a diagnosis of sleep apnea, your care may consist of a sleep study and other diagnostic testing before a treatment plan can be made to better understand your unique situation.
Our night guards are made by taking impressions of your mouth for a custom-fit therapeutic appliance. Once the night guard is ready at our office, you will have a fitting appointment to make sure that it fits, is comfortable, and does not need adjustments. Once at home, it is really important to use your night guard on a consistent basis to help prevent the symptoms of sleep apnea, stop snoring, and limit the amount of fatigue you feel after having disrupted sleep.
Keeping your night guard clean is very easy. We suggest that when you brush your teeth at night and in the morning, you also clean your night guard with your toothbrush and toothpaste, rinse, dry, and then store in your night guard container. You will also need to take the night guard with you to your appointments so that it can be checked for deformities and wear. If your night guard is not in great condition, it will not provide you with effective treatment.

“I chose to see Dr. Bietsch from a referral from a friend. I am so happy that I did. The entire consult was all about my son and never about the doctor. I was so impressed that I chose to see him myself for some orthodontic work.”- Amy
