Sleep Apnea/Snoring

Sleep Apnea is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep.

Sleep Apnea is a chronic condition that disrupts your sleep. As a result, the quality of your sleep suffers. It is a leading cause of excessive daytime sleepiness.

Dr. Macks treats Sleep Apnea in his Tacoma office right off I-5 and near the Tacoma Mall. If your Sleep Apnea goes untreated, a few of the common side effects are listed below:

  • Increase the risk of, or worsen, heart failure
  • Increased risk of arrhythmia or irregular heartbeat
  • Increased risk of work-related or driving accident
  • Increased risk of high blood pressure, stroke, obesity and diabetes

Sleep Apnea is a chronic condition that requires long-term management. Lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, surgery and breathing devices can successfully treat sleep apnea in many people.

Please ask Dr. Macks or staff about what the best options are for treating your Sleep Apnea condition.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Macks and his staff are amazing. We stumbled across this office when my husband was having horrible tooth pain and needed emergency care. We called around to numerous dentists and left several messages (it was after hours about 9 pm). Dr. Macks was the only one to ever call us back, he wrote a prescription to help him through the night then scheduled him first thing in morning. They very good care of my husband at this appointment and we knew we'd be life long patients! This was about 5 years ago and we have been going ever since. We receive superior care every time we go. They are so friendly and kind . Several members of our family have started seeing Dr. Macks as well. "

"I have been going to this Dental office for over 10 years now and I would never go anywhere else. The entire office staff is friendly and professional and your personal dental hygienist will greet you in the waiting room with a smile every appointment. I use to loathe going to the dentist but this staff makes a pleasant experience every visit. I have referred my friends and family to Dr Macks and will definitely continue to do so."

"If you are looking for a dentist, call Dr. Macks now. He is by far the most capable and humane dentist I have ever visited. He did more for me in one appointment than other dentists have done for me over my whole life. He is helping me get my teeth where they need to be faster and better than I knew was even possible. And he can do almost everything in his beautiful, comfortable office. His staff are wonderful too. He is getting very busy so appointments are precious. Going to Dr. Macks was one of the best decisions I"ve made with my dental care, now all of my family goes to him. This recommendation is meant for Dr. Macks and not for the other dentists that practice in his office."
