Sleep Apnea

Tackling Sleep Apnea at Portal Dental Pasadena

Struggling with sleep apnea? At Portal Dental Pasadena, located at 3409 Spencer Hwy Suite 100, Pasadena, Texas 77504, we offer specialized surgical treatments aimed to alleviate this disruptive condition. Sleep apnea can cause a host of health problems, primarily due to blocked upper air passages during sleep, often caused by excess tissue.

Effective Surgical Solutions

Here at Portal Dental Pasadena, we have several surgical interventions to tackle sleep apnea effectively:

  • Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP): This hospital-based procedure is conducted under general anesthesia and removes the excess tissue from your upper mouth and throat, helping to reduce any obstructions to your airway.
  • Maxillomandibular Advancement: This approach involves both the upper and lower jaw. By realigning the jaw to move it forward, more room is created behind the soft palate, which aids in reducing airway obstruction.
  • Tracheostomy: As a last-resort option for severe cases where other treatments have not succeeded, a tube is inserted into your throat to keep your airway open. This tube is closed during the day but open at night when you sleep.

Safety is Our Priority

All the surgical procedures we offer are routine and performed with the utmost safety precautions, ensuring a successful treatment.
