Signs You Could Have Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Could sleep apnea be the thief stealing your zzzs every night? You might have sleep apnea if you’re experiencing:

An additional key symptom is if your partner notices you periodically stop breathing during the night. Sleep apnea can increase your risks for several serious illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and metabolism issues.Randy G. on Getting Rid of His CPAP Read Transcript
I was diagnosed 10 years ago with sleep apnea and I was a CPAP user. It's uncomfortable. I came and Dr. Roeder and his team examined me and they found out that, in fact, I was an ideal candidate for an alternate treatment which is a custom fitted mouthpiece. We went through all the measuring and testing using computer imaging and measuring techniques. They measured my airway and how much my airway opened by projecting my lower jaw forward. By moving my lower jaw slightly forward with this custom mouthpiece, it opened up my airway significantly and cured the problem. They made a custom fitted mouthpiece for me and I've been using that for close to four years now and I sleep like a baby. This is much easier. I travel for business quite a bit so the mouthpiece goes with me in my normal kit with all my other toiletries and pop it in before I go to bed and that's that. I was so happy with that, that I decided to leave the dental practice that I was going to and had all my records transferred here and I've been seeing Dr. Roeder ever since.
Why Dr. Roeder Prefers A Dental Appliance To A CPAP Machine
Dr. Roeder and his wife both found the CPAP machine to be an unwelcome addition to their bedroom. In comparison, he found that his dental appliance was quiet, more comfortable to wear, and less invasive than a CPAP machine. A dental appliance overcomes obstructive sleep apnea by keeping your tongue and the tissues at the back of your mouth from blocking your airways.
