Dental Sleep Apnea Appliance Review - Sedalia, MO

“First one that falls asleep wins!” has always been the running joke between me and my husband. I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, always restless, having trouble with concentration and memory. I became excessively tired throughout the day. A CPAP mask strapped around my head, covering my nose and mouth was the prescribed resolution. It was impossible to get comfortable enough to sleep while wearing the CPAP because I sleep on my side and stomach. 
 
In search of an alternative, effective solution. While researching, I found the National Sleep Foundation says more than 18 million adults suffer from sleep apnea. It also talked about ongoing damage to your health when your oxygen to your brain is briefly and repeatedly interrupted during sleep. Then I found out about Dentist, Dr. Jon Ehlers treating sleep apnea patients with an oral appliance. I called his office, confirmed the availability of the sleep apnea treatment, and made my appointment. 
 
That appointment changed my life. It was amazing to wake-up after the first night of wearing my device and realizing I slept all night. My husband immediately noticed I was no longer snoring. It has been a year now and I’m still sleeping all night without snoring. 
 
I am forever grateful to Dr. Jon for improving my quality of daily life. In fact, I was so impressed with Dr Jon and his amazing staff. He is not only my hero for treating my sleep apnea. He is now our family dentist.
