What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a dangerous and common sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing patterns or shallow breaths during sleep. These interruptions can occur multiple times throughout the night, leading to disrupted and poor sleep quality and various health issues.

Oftentimes, a sleep study is recommended by physicians to properly diagnose the condition and determine the severity of the sleep apnea. Through this test, doctors can better understand the individual’s sleep pattern and devise an effective treatment plan.

Symptoms include:

  • Sore throat upon waking up
  • Dry mouth
  • Loud snoring
  • Fatigue during the day
  • Morning headaches
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Chronic snoring

Types of Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

This is the most common type of sleep apnea, where the muscles in the throat relax during sleep and cause a partial or complete airway blockage. Obstructive Sleep Apnea can lead to loud snoring, gasping, or choking during sleep.

Central Sleep Apnea (CSA)

In this type, the brain fails to send the proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. This causes pauses in breathing during sleep without any physical blockage in the airway. CSA is less common and is often associated with certain medical conditions or medication use.

Why Is It Essential to Get Treatment for Sleep Apnea?

  • Reduced Risk of Heart Disease. Sleep apnea has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, including high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes. Treating it can help improve heart health and reduce these risks.
  • Improved Quality of Sleep. Sleep apnea leads to poor sleep quality due to frequent interruptions in breathing. Treating this condition can help you achieve restorative sleep, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and energized.
  • Relief From Daytime Sleepiness. One of the most common sleep apnea symptoms is excessive daytime sleepiness. Treating it can help alleviate this symptom, improving your focus, productivity, and overall quality of life.
  • Reduced Snoring. Loud snoring is a common symptom and can cause disruptions for the person with this condition and their sleep partner. Effective treatment can significantly reduce or eliminate snoring.
  • Lowered Risk of Accidents. Individuals with untreated sleep apnea are at a higher risk of accidents, including drowsy driving. Treating it can improve alertness and reduce the risk of accidents caused by excessive daytime sleepiness.

What Are the Available Treatment Methods for Sleep Apnea?

Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) Therapy

PAP therapy involves wearing a mask over the nose or mouth during sleep. The mask delivers a continuous stream of air, creating positive air pressure to keep the airway open. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) are two common types of PAP therapy.

Oral Appliance Therapy

These custom-fitted devices are worn in the mouth during sleep, helping to reposition the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open. Oral appliances are an effective treatment option for mild to moderate sleep apnea and are popular among individuals who find CPAP masks uncomfortable. They offer a convenient and non-invasive alternative for managing this condition.

Lifestyle Modifications

Certain lifestyle changes can help alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnea. These include maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding alcohol and sedatives before bed, sleeping on your side instead of your back, and practicing good sleep hygiene.

Combination Therapy

In some cases, a combination of different treatment methods may be needed to manage sleep apnea. This might involve using an oral appliance in conjunction with PAP therapy or other treatments as recommended by a healthcare professional.

Surgical Procedures

In severe cases of sleep apnea that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical intervention may be necessary. Surgical options aim to remove excess tissue blocking the airway or reposition anatomical structures to improve breathing during sleep.

Beautiful office, friendly staff and so far an extremely pleasant experience! My daughter has only completed the first stage and has 2 years worth of follow ups but she’s looking forward to it based on a really great initial experience.

Amazing environment

Great customer service, friendly staff, and am satisfied with the payment methods I was offer.

Such a great experience! Very informative and welcoming! Very quick and professional as well! Went in for a free consultation for braces and they were able to get me in for a same day installation! I most definitely recommend using Leiker Orthodontics!

Came in for consultation, everybody was so nice it felt like home, not over priced like some other places I’ve visited I highly recommend!

Everyone at Leiker Orthodontics was absolutely amazing. I was greeted with a smile when I first walked in, thanked for coming & was led back within minutes. Everything was kindly explained to me in detail & done by very caring hands. The experience was fantastic and I’d recommend going there to everyone.They deserve each & every star you see… ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The entire staff and Dr Leiker were very nice and welcoming. They explained the process an answered all of our questions. My boysblive that they have video games they can play while they wait and cookies to snack on.

All staff at Dr. Leiker Orthodontics are professional and efficient. We love this office!

The first impression is extremely important. I must say I were very impressed with the staff, the esthetics of your office, I has a very good relaxing environment. I was treated professionally and shown great care. I would highly recommend Dr. Leiker as your Orthodontist.

You genuinely could not ask for a better orthodontist, father or son. I’d give 6 stars if I could. Come here!

Just started my treatment and wow !!! The people who work here are super amazing, kind, and friendly! I was a little scared to get my braces on but they comforted me the entire way. I’m excited to start my orthodontic journey, and glad I picked this place to do it !

What an amazing group My family is blessed we found them ❤️

The best orthodontists and team Ever! Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great orthodontist in Conroe or The Woodlands.

My daughter has been going to Leiker for 4 years. They are the best!!!

Dr. Leiker and his staff were amazing. There was no time wasted. They promptly saw me and took great care of my services. I recommend to anyone seeking orthodontics.

The team at Leiker orthodontics did such a great job with my braces journey! Got them off today and couldn’t be more happy with the results!! Would highly recommend for all your ortho needs! And a special shout out to Paula for being so kind and patient with me during the removal process! It was, as I’m sure I mentioned 100x, my worst nightmare as I’ve always been a nervous wreck with any dental procedures 😅

Great office and staff!

Super friendly and helpful great staff

Professional staff and they're helpful.

From my first call to after our 1st visit our experience has been great. The office staff is amazing and are very knowledgeable in insurance etc and explain everything up front. We will be starting treatment soon and feel my grand will be in very good hands.

Nicest staff and dentist you will find. Genuinely love going in for my appointments.

Always a pleasant experience! The team is so kind, punctual and quick!

Amazing staff, amazing doctors! Would recommend this place to anyone in the area!

We had a great experience. Probably the best, most friendly consultation I have ever experienced. They have my daughter excited for dental work!

Leiker Orthodontics never disappoints. We never have to wait past our appointment time and everyone is friendly and helpful. I will recommend them every time.

Love Kathy!! the best orthodontic service in the world, she takes her time and double checks everything, nothing ever falls off or punctures my sons cheeks when she adjusts his braces, his teeth have gone from (parallel) to (in line), incredible! when spending this much money you want the best service possible! And that is Kathy by far! not to mention she is warm and friendly which is the icing on the cake!

Dr Leiker is an excellent orthodontist! He is very knowledgeable, professional and extremely kind! As well as his entire staff are also very professional and kind too! Thank you so much 😊 Kristy Sanchez Leon

So I waited to write this review until after my daughters braces were taken off. The whole process took about 2 years and I wanted to be able to give an honest and thorough review. I can say with certainty that we went with the right team for her beautiful smile. From start to finish, the process has been seamless. The price was fair. The work was beautiful. Her teeth have changed sooo much!! From Miss Tiffany at the front desk, to all the ladies in the back, to Dr. Leiker himself, the staff had been so kind and helpful over the past 2 years. 10/10 would recommend! My son will be needing braces in the next year or so and we will without a doubt be returning patients. Thank you Leiker team!!

Great customer service and care. The staff is always kind and smiling.

Great Office!!

They treat me like family! Love this Ortho!

The atmosphere is friendly and everyone makes an effort to make you feel comfortable. The doctors are easy going, not aggressive with treatments and willing to allow time for treatment. Other doctors recommended invasive procedures to speed up treatment and that was not needed or wanted. I appreciated the kindness of Dr. Leiker in considering how I wanted to approach my treatment along with what would get the best results.

Leiker Orthodontics took care of my Invisalign process from beginning to end. I must say that it was the most pleasant dental experience I have had in my 55 years. Most people are hesitant to go to the dentist for even the most routine work, but I have to admit that I always looked forward to visiting the Leiker office. They have the most friendly staff and the coolest arcade room. Most importantly, they made me feel welcome even though I was an older adult getting braces.

Great and Friendly Service. HIGHLY Recommended!

Everyone at Leiker is always very helpful. Thank you!

Leiker Orthodontics - Conroe always makes my son feel at ease at his appointment. Dr. Bausch takes his time in explaining what he is doing, the work is never rushed and everyone is very nice.

Leiker Orthodontics is a very organized and family friendly environment. I have been under Invisalign treatment there over a year. All of my experiences have been great and educational!

I had not seeing my daughter smile in years. Dr. Bautsh brought back her smile! And the staff is amazing!

We love this office everyone is so friendly the office is very nice and welcoming!

My son was a patient of Dr. Leiker 10+ years ago before they relocated to the new office and everyone was really friendly and courteous so naturally I brought my daughter here when it was her time for braces. The office is clean and they have snacks and drinks in the waiting room. There’s also a game room with old school arcade games if you’re bored.

I have always felt self conscious about my teeth even when speaking to a professional. Leiker Orthodontics provides excellent service and makes me feel comfortable while talking and discussing my teeth.

Never overbooked, always greeted with a smile, all staff is extremely friendly, and I love that everything is explained so that you can easily understand. My son is always nervous at doctors appts, or dentist appts, but he is relaxed and comfortable visiting his orthodontist.

Leiker Orthodontics always has the best service! Their office is extremely well run and everyone is so kind and helpful.
