What Is Sleep Apnea?

Does your partner or spouse complain about your snoring? Do you often wake up in the morning feeling like you haven’t slept at all? Are you tired all the time and is your quality of life suffering because of it?

You may be one of nearly 20 million Americans who suffers from sleep apnea— a disorder where your breathing becomes very shallow, or stops entirely, during sleep. Sleep apnea is most often caused by an undersized, collapsed, or blocked airway.

A person with sleep apnea may stop breathing dozens of times every night, leading to poor sleep, tiredness, decreased productivity, and an overall lower quality of life. However, the real danger comes from the possibility that a person’s breathing may not restart on its own, making sleep apnea a potentially deadly condition.

A Non-Surgical Holistic Sleep Apnea Treatment

Traditional sleep apnea treatments are cumbersome, painful, and have serious drawbacks:

  • CPAP(continuous positive airway pressure) – A mask worn over the face and mouth during sleep and a small electric air compressor.
  • MAD (mandibular advancement device) – Forces the lower jaw forward, using the upper jaw for leverage.

Neither solution is ideal and neither solution treats the root cause of sleep apnea.

Fortunately, there is a better option!

The Daytime-Nighttime Appliance, also known as the DNA appliance, is revolutionary. Without surgery, orthodontics, braces, prescription drugs, injections, or any traditional dental gear, the DNA appliance system applies light intermittent vibrational forces to your teeth.

As your upper jaw expands and develops into its maximum natural shape and position, the size of your airway increases, too.

You’ll feel a dramatic improvement in your ability to breathe throughout the day and night.
