Sleep Apnea Treatment
Improve your quality of life and health with restful sleep. If you wake up in the morning tired, experience frequent morning headaches, occasional drowsiness during the day, snore, have high blood pressure, occasional jaw joint discomfort or ringing in your ears, you may suffer from sleep-disordered breathing.
Snoring and sleep apnea can aggravate and cause several health conditions, but there is great news. Ask Dr. Herr about using an oral appliance to improve snoring and sleep apnea rather than using a c-pap or medications.
