SAN ANTONIO - Are you tired of being tired?

The Center for Sleep Apnea & Snoring is here to help you get the best sleep of your life.

The Center for Sleep Apnea & Snoring is a dental practice dedicated to treating sleep disorders, including sleep apnea.

"Sleep apnea can cause diabetes (and) high blood pressure and even lead to a stroke," said Veronica Morillos, a sleep technician with The Center for Sleep Apnea & Snoring.

Instead of using the CPAP breathing mask for sleep apnea, The Center for Sleep Apnea & Snoring offers an oral appliance to help patients get better sleep.
