I wear the same appliance I provide for my patients.

“Obstructive airway disorder is one cause of sleep apnea and can be treated with a simple oral device worn at night. My father died in his sleep from a stroke which is one of the risks of sleep apnea. When I was diagnosed with sleep apnea I began to wear the same oral appliance I provide my patients with.” –Dr. K. Pat Brown

“I wasn’t able to hold down a job. I wasn’t able to function or get anything done. My emotional state was so deteriorated; my wife and I even went for marriage counseling. The sleep appliance has literally saved my life. I’ve started to be the person my wife met and married years ago. ” David S.,
