18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. However, up to 90% of them are undiagnosed. Not knowing you have it, or ignoring it, won't make it go away and if left untreated sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems ranging from diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or even a stroke. Sleep apnea is a condition that causes you to literally STOP BREATHING in your sleep, several times a night! This causes trauma to your organs, especially your heart, making it a life-threatening condition.
How to spot Sleep Apnea:
- Choking or gasping at night
- Sore/dry throat upon awaking
- Morning headaches
- Loud thunderous snoring
- Fatigue - Tired all day
Sleep Apnea has been linked to:
- High Blood Pressure
- Heart attack and Heart Failure
You probably would not have thought the first and best place to seek help for a sleep disorder or breathing problem is at your Dentist's Office, BUT it is the #1 place to go to diagnose and resolve your sleep apnea. At Dr. Alvaro Fernandez-Carol's office the good news is that with a simple custom made Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance you will no longer feel tired all day, wake up at night gasping for air, or wake others up with your loud snoring.

Achieving more restful sleep will improve your life and enhance your overall health. This can be easily accomplished with an oral appliance. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has issued new guidelines stating that oral appliances are now recommended as the first option for mild to moderate sleep apnea and the next option for patients who won't use their Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) machine consistently - even the most severe cases!
Oral Dental Appliance Therapy really works, with an almost 30 year track record to prove it! Current literature reports that the majority of those who use a Sleep Apnea Dental Appliance experience a higher success rate and longer-term compliance compared to other methods. Using this type of appliance could also improve your overall health, because rest and a good nights sleep is a vital component to good health. Depending on the type of oral appliance used, studies have shown up to a 99% success rate at eliminating snoring and an average of 75% success rate in reducing episodes of mild to moderate sleep apnea. That's why more and more patients are turning to proven, FDA-cleared Dental Sleep Apnea Appliances and eliminating their snoring and any complications from Sleep Apnea.
