Simple Sleep Services is bringing an affordable treatment for sleep apnea to Stone Oak, according to the company.
Started in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Simple Sleep Services, since 2011, has aided patients with obstructive sleep apnea. Symptoms occur when throat muscles get too relaxed and airways are blocked.
The local center recently debuted at 700 E. Sonterra Blvd., Suite 207.
Practice manager and 20-year medical veteran Mindy Rivas said getting a good night’s sleep is critical to overall health.
“Nobody really thinks about that, people feeling fatigue all the time.” Rivas said. “Well, hey, let’s do a sleep study and see how you are sleeping.”
Michael Hill is a dentist specializing in providing therapy for patients with obstructive sleep disorders.
Shut-eye loss can contribute to accidents at work and driving, Hill said. It can increase risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, coronary heart disease and obesity too, he added.
Simple Sleep Services specializes in oral appliance therapy.
The oral device, a custom-made appliance, stabilizes the lower jaw keeping the airways open, while preventing the tongue and soft tissues of the throat from collapsing.
Simple Sleep Services and their partners use both home sleep testing and polysomnography sleep testing to get their patients properly diagnosed.
Polysomnography exams record brain waves, oxygen levels in blood, heart rate, breathing, and eye and leg movements during a study period, according to medical professionals.
Hours are weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed Saturday and Sunday.
