    Steps Involved in Airway Screening in Pearland, TX

    The process of airway screening at our practice is simple and painless. Typically, it involves the following steps:

    • Initial Consultation: We will first listen to your concerns and symptoms. Our team will ask you about your dental and medical history, medications, allergies, and lifestyle habits. Using this data, we can determine your risk of having a sleep disorder or sleep apnea.
    • Oral examination: We will carefully examine your mouth and throat area to look out for the tell-tale signs of sleep apnea. Some common ones include narrow arches, high palate, enlarged tonsils, soft palate, tongue tie, or scalloped tongue. Our team will also assess your oral cavity for signs of bruxism or jaw irregularities.
    • Digital imaging: To assess the hidden area of your mouth, we will take digital X-rays or scans of your teeth and jaws. It helps us to evaluate the structure and alignment of your bones and tissues. With these scans, we can also measure the width and depth of your airway.
    • Treatment options: Based on the results of the airway screening, we will determine if you need further testing or treatment. Our dentists will form a care plan to treat the symptoms of sleep apnea with customized oral appliances.
