A Solution to Snoring and CPAP Machines

Did you wake up feeling tired and cranky again this morning? Have people told you that you snore? Do you suffer from a constant lack of energy? It could be sleep apnea.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea affects more than 20 million Americans and it can be life threatening.

Common side effects of Obstructive Sleep Apnea include:

  • Heart Attack
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Stroke
  • Heartburn
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Lack of energy
  • Dry mouth
  • Impaired Concentration
  • Irritability
  • Weight Gain
  • Gastric Reflux
  • Chronic Sleepiness
  • Impaired Concentration
  • Impotence
  • Decreased Libido

The real indication of sleep apnea isn’t snoring, but when snoring stops – along with your breathing.  Sleep apnea can cause a person to stop breathing for periods of time, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer.

We can help. We have advanced training to recognize and diagnose various sleep apnea problems associated with oral misalignment of nose and mouth structure. One of our most innovative and advanced methods is to create a custom-fit, custom-made oral device that comfortably opens the airway by moving the jaw forward, preventing the tongue and the soft tissue of the throat from collapsing into the airway.

This is an especially helpful alternative for anyone who has trouble wearing a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) device to splint the airway and keep it open with forced air. We can even track the effectiveness of the sleep apnea device with a take-home monitor. You’ll be sleeping through the night and wake feeling refreshed, rested and alert in no time. Our patients are amazed at how much better they feel.
