Our goal at Snoring and CPAP Solutions LLC is to help Greater Cleveland and Lake County residents sleep well, wake up refreshed, and stop snoring – all without the use of a noisy CPAP machine! We are proud to offer quality snoring and sleep apnea solutions.

Simply snoring, or a symptom of something more serious?

Sleep disorders such as apnea can have a negative impact on health in more ways than you might imagine. Beyond the lack of sleep, apnea interrupts breathing, depriving your body of oxygen. When you suddenly stop breathing, your brain kicks into panic mode, partially waking you up. When the airway first starts opening, it vibrates (loudly) as breath passes through. If you’ve ever wondered what causes snoring, apnea could be the answer.

How can you tell if it’s apnea? Our online sleep survey is a good place to start, as it helps you assess you potential apnea risk. If you think that you might have apnea, or if you are looking for effective snoring treatment, come in for a no cost consultation with Dr. Stern.

Why oral appliance therapy is the preferred alternative to CPAP

An apnea appliance is custom-made, and fits your teeth similar to a dental mouth guard. There are no tubes, masks, or noisy machines involved. It is convenient when traveling, comfortable to wear, and does not affect the humidity of air you are breathing.

The best way to find out about the benefits of sleep apnea treatment is to experience them for yourself. Come see Dr. Stern at Snoring and CPAP Solutions LLC in Lake County, OH for a free apnea consultation to learn more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, dentists can treat sleep apnea using a convenient oral appliance. These oral appliances are often just as effective as CPAP machines, without the bulkiness and noise. Oral appliances can also be helpful if your CPAP mask makes you feel claustrophobic because they fit inside your mouth comfortably.

Dentists are trained to look for abnormalities in your mouth and throat. Your dental team likely sees your mouth the most and they know what to look for. Sleep apnea issues can be physically visible and even if you don’t realize it, you may be suffering.

People in all stages and walks of life develop sleep apnea, but there are factors that put you more at risk. Some of the factors that can put you at greater risk are if you’re male, over the age of 40, overweight, or smoke. Sometimes, lifestyle changes can be combined with professional treatment to further reduce your symptoms.
