Improving Sleep Apnea Symptoms

Snoring once and awhile is perfectly normal, but dealing with symptoms of sleep apnea on a regular basis can disrupt both your sleep patterns and effect those around you. During May, which is Better Sleep Month, learn about the factors that could cause you to have poor sleep quality.

Getting Better Sleep

If you’re not getting enough quality sleep, it can affect your whole day. There are many factors in getting better sleep, including your bedroom, your bed, sleep positions, and sleep disorders. If snoring is causing a problem in your sleep pattern, it’s important to first understand what is causing your snoring.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Lifestyle changes, like losing weight, and treatments, like wearing a mouthpiece when you sleep, may treat your snoring or sleep apnea. If it doesn’t help with your symptoms, there are other procedures and surgeries done by Fort Worth Ear and Sinus that can help open your airways.If you snore or have other symptoms of sleep apnea, see if you should talk with Dr. Marc Dean about surgery.


If the cause of your snoring or blocked airways is due to a crooked or deformed nasal septum, septoplasty can repair the septum. During the surgery, any blockages, including bone or cartilage, are repositioned or removed.

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)

A UPPP surgery can treat severe snoring as well as obstructive sleep apnea. During the procedure, your otolaryngologist can remove part of the uvula, sides of the throat, or tonsils and adenoids. This will open your upper airways to help treat your snoring or sleep apnea.
