She is also aware that each patient has a unique oral structure, medical background, and lifestyle. That’s why she provides options in treatment for snoring and sleep apnea.

Is it more than a snore?

Most of us snore occasionally, maybe from a head cold or allergies. Chronic loud snoring, however, can seriously impair sleep for you and your bedmate. It may also be a symptom of a serious medical condition called obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA.

While OSA is most common in middle-aged men with a little extra girth, anyone can develop it, including very slender people and children. It is the result of the airway becomes partially or fully blocked by the tongue and soft tissues at the back of the throat, as you relax into sleep. Breathing becomes shallow or stops for up to several minutes. As blood oxygen levels drop, a surge of adrenaline jolts the brain and body partially awake. You take a few deep breaths, and the cycle starts over. For a severe apneic, this process may repeat dozens of times per hour, preventing restful sleep.

Sleep occurs in four phases, with the most regeneration occurring in the third stage. Apneic (and often their partners) seldom reach this deep level. Sleep deprivation is strongly linked to health problems such as:

  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Immune function disorders
  • Obesity
  • Premature aging
  • Stroke
  • TMJ issues

Personalized treatment for snoring and sleep apnea – Houston, TX

CPAP is not your only treatment choice. Dr. Jones is certified in functional orthopedics, using the DNA (Daytime/Nighttime Appliance) system to modify facial structures that impede clear breathing. She also offers NightLase laser treatment to tighten throat tissues that block the airway. These methods can be used alone, or in combination with CPAP to promote optimal sleep.

Don’t waste another night snoring.

Wow! I cannot explain how truly grateful I am to have found Dr. Jones. I was referred to her practice from a friend, and to say the least it was a very pleasant experience. Like most people, I have always been nervous about going to the dentist, but Dr. Jones put all my fears at ease. She was gentile, thorough and listened to all of my questions and concerns. Her staff was so welcoming and I cannot wait to return with the rest of my family.

In general, I have a strong dislike for the dentist. I have very sensitive teeth and continually find that dentists do not listen to me as I explain this.I really appreciate how Marilyn is willing to listen to you and really takes into account what you say. It means a lot for a dentist to take the time to do that and actually follow through with what they say that they are going to do. This was the best experience that I've had with a dentist, and I will definitely be going back!

Just like most people I hate going to the dentist but Dr. Jones office was very professional and polite; they made my experience very pleasant. When I asked a lot of questions they took the time to explain things to me or elaborate their answers. I would definitely recommend making your next dentist appointment here if you want to be sure you have a seamless and stress free experience!

My regular dentist failed to make my appointment so I came into this dental office as a walk-in and surprisingly was seen within minutes. It was just a routine check-up but they found a minor cavity on my back molar. Fortunately, I have set up a follow-up appointment with Dr. Jones instead of my regular dentist. I was really impressed by the staff and the professionalism. I received literature about gum health and when I called back an hour later with more questions, all were answered immediately. The location is perfect so I'm happy to have stumbled upon it, definitely going to refer my friends!

First time here and I have to say I was really impressed. The location of the office is great and easy to find and the staff here are very professional. I found Dr. Jones when I started my search for a dentist in the area and I'm glad I did. I don't know about the other services she provides but speaking for myself I can say I think she has routine dental and patient care down pat, I just might make this my permanent dentist office.

It's that time again. dental cleanings, physical exams, and all other fun stuff that you never really have the time to do, but know it has to be done. I am a person that hates going to medical appointments of any kind and not because of fear or pain, but because it seems that many offices have poor time management, and "ain't nobody got time for dat". I arrived about ten minutes before my appointment time, but since it was near the end of the workday, I was sure I would be waiting forever. To my great delight, I had barely completed my enrollment paperwork when I was escorted to the back by a friendly dental assistant that asked about my day and chatted about hers; she did a good job at helping me relax. The rest of the appointment went smoothly. Dr. Jones has warm, friendly eyes that made me feel as if she really cares about what’s best for you when she speaks to you. All I went in for was cleaning and checkup, but I got a lot more. I found a regular dentist.

I am a recent transplant to Houston and was recommended Marilyn's practice by friends. I was worried there would be difficulty with my insurance and transferring my paperwork from my dentist back in MD, but receptionist was extremely helpful and took care of everything. The waiting room was nice and welcoming. Unlike most doctor or dentist appointments there was no waiting an hour after your original appointment time. The staff was prompt and courteous. After being lead into the exam room I was greeted by a technician/ hygienist (?) who cleaned my teeth and took the necessary x-rays. Marilyn came in after and was extremely nice and patient answering all my questions about a minimal oral surgery I would need to schedule for the future. Overall for a dentist appointment it was a very pleasant visit 🙂
