My snoring got so bad that even our pet parrot would mimic the sound of my snoring, except his was even louder than mine. When I would stop breathing while sleeping it really worried my wife. After being diagnosed with sleep apnea I was given a CPAP, but the pressure of the CPAP made it hard to breathe and I always felt tense when sleeping with the CPAP machine. My blood pressure was out of control, even with continual increases in my medication so I knew I needed treatment for my sleep apnea. Within the first month of using the dental appliance I noticed a huge difference in my energy levels. My wife is so happy because for the first time in years, we have a life after dinner now. My blood pressure is also regulated after wearing the appliance.
