Have you been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea or "OSA"?
Have you been issued a CPAP, or "Continuous Positive Airway Pressure" machine?
Is your CPAP machine sitting in a closet or a box somewhere because you refuse to use it?!!!!!
70% of OSA patients fail to use their CPAP!!!!
Did you know there is an alternative to the CPAP machine known as Oral Appliance Therapies or "OATS"?
The fact that you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea makes you vulnerable to the following:
High Blood Pressure, Congestive Heart Failure, Atrial Fibrillation, Attention Deficit Disorder, ADHD, Migraine Headaches, Restless Leg Syndrom, STROKE, Depression, Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Inflamation, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, Obesity Hormones, Perioperative Risk, Asthma, Cough, Disrupted Sleep and Snoring. Oh, and it can kill you!
After reading that, are you concerned??? You should be! Ask me how I know. I, too, have been diagnosed with OSA. I wear a Somnodent MAS oral appliance at night to keep my airway open. For me, this device has been life altering. I sleep sooo well and I wake up feeling rested. My blood pressure is dropping, and I'm loosing weight. How cool is that!!!
If you are interested in Oral Appliance Therapy to treat your Obstructive Sleep Apnea, have your physician refer you to me. I will do an OSA exam for you, submit to your medical insurance for you, and fabricate the appropriate OAT for you, working cotherapeutically with your physician. Cost: $1400.00.
In all sincerity, please do not sit there knowing you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea and not do anything about it.
