HELP WITH SLEEP APNEA DISORDER & SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT
If you don’t have trouble sleeping, I bet you know or have worked with someone who has sleep problems – whether they have trouble falling asleep, snore, don’t like their CPAP machine, or wake up in the middle of the night out of breath.
These could be symptoms or complications of Sleep Apnea or another Sleep Disorder.
The Epworth Sleep Apnea test was introduced by Dr. Murray Johns in 1991, and has been validated and in use in obstructive sleep apnea treatment ever since. It is a simple and accurate way to screen yourself for sleep apnea.

The most common treatment, the industry gold standard if you will, is a CPAP machine. A CPAP is a positive-pressure mask that you wear over your mouth and nose while you sleep. While very effective at treating severe sleep apnea, most patients find it a bit invasive and uncomfortable.
For those patients who are looking for an alternative to CPAP, we offer sleep apnea oral appliances, sometimes called MADs (Mandibular Advancing Device) or MRD (Mandibular Repositioning Device).
