Obstructive sleep apnea causes a person’s airway to close during sleep, depriving them of oxygen and interrupting normal sleep patterns. Obstructive Sleep Apnea can cause sleepiness during the daytime and serious health issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. Dr. Carl Findley has attended several advanced seminars on this topic, including the detrimental effects from a medical standpoint.
While the CPAP is the gold standard, many people cannot wear it. The Moses appliance that we offer can help in many cases. Research has shown that treatment with an oral appliance can be as effective as a CPAP machine. Dr. Findley personally wears an appliance to help him with his diagnosed mild to moderate sleep apnea. It’s very comfortable and very beneficial.
