At Baytown Gentle Dental, Dr. Seif offers sleep apnea treatment to help our Baytown, TX dental patients get quality shut-eye again. Learn more by calling us to schedule your appointment!

Sleep Apnea Treatment
Our team treats sleep apnea with custom oral appliances. These devices resemble mouthguards and are made of highly durable thermoplastic. When worn to bed, they gently push your lower jaw forward. This keeps your airway open by preventing blockage, allowing you to get a restful night’s sleep without waking up gasping for air.
At-Home Sleep Testing
Traditionally, testing for sleep apnea involved spending the night at a facility and having a group of professionals monitor you over the course of several hours. Needless to say, this experience could be awkward and uncomfortable, preventing accurate results. At Baytown Gentle Dental, we can loan you a device that can monitor your sleep in the comfort of your own home! This makes it much easier to obtain a diagnosis and begin treatment.
