While traditional approaches typically include an uncomfortable and inconvenient CPAP machine, we use an FDA approved device that is more like a simple mouthguard used in athletics. This personalized oral appliance keeps the jaw in a forward position while you sleep, allowing your airway to remain open for an uninterrupted, better night’s sleep. It is small, portable, quiet, comfortable, and highly effective. The result is a good night’s sleep leads to more energy throughout the day as well as increased mental focus and clarity. Many patients (and their spouses) find treatment to be a lifesaver.
I was asked by my hygienist, Janet, if I had ever been tested for “Sleep Apnea”? No I had not, so Dr. Pell sent me home with a testing device which I wore for one night and returned it to them the next day. They sent it off to a testing facility and called me within a couple of days and said that I had a very severe case of Sleep Apnea! Dr. Pell and his team took action and fitted me up with an oral appliance to wear while I slept. I never realized how good a restful nights sleep was! Thanks to Dr. Pell and his amazing team, I am now sleeping all night long and waking up rested!
