Sleep apnea contributes to increased risk of heart attack and stroke, which means that the problem doesn't just cause discomfort or irritation – it can cause deadly health problems, too. Snoring and sleep apnea therapy will greatly reduce your risk of serious complications.
Chronic fatigue and snoring are common complaints, and they are not necessarily as harmless as they may seem. Sure, being constantly tired and loudly snoring are annoying, but could they be harmful? If these are signs that you're suffering from sleep apnea, they can definitely be a serious issue. Chronic fatigue will deteriorate your health, and snoring could be a sign of interrupted breathing during sleep that will put a strain on your body and increase your risk of certain serious physical health problems. Luckily, you can breathe easier and sleep better with snoring and sleep apnea therapy.

These can all be signs of sleep apnea, which involves long pauses in breathing during sleep. These pauses in breathing will rouse you from the deepest stages of sleep, causing chronic fatigue and problems with mental functioning. And, of course, the snoring will annoy your spouse as well! With snoring and sleep apnea therapy appliances, you can find relief for your sleep apnea and get a good night's rest.
We use intraoral snoring and sleep apnea therapy appliances to make it easier to breathe. These appliances reposition the jaw and keep the airway clear, preventing blockage that causes the pauses in breathing. Snoring and sleep apnea therapy appliances can be more successful than treatment with CPAP because you're far more likely to wear an intraoral appliance than a breathing mask. These appliances are comfortable and effective, which are important when you're trying to get a good night's sleep!
