Living with untreated sleep apnea is like waking up every day to a foggy morning. You can get through it but it gets old after a while. People who suffer from sleep apnea stop breathing momentarily while they are asleep. Their deep sleep is interrupted many times throughout the night oftentimes without their knowing it. Some people wake hundreds of times a night due to the obstruction in their breathing passage. This is why sleep apnea is often referred to as OSA or Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
So after ongoing months and years of interrupted sleep, your daily routine becomes affected and some patients report some very serious negative effects such as acid reflux, depression, decreased sexual desire, mental confusion and weight gain. However, on the flip side, patients who are treated feel amazing for the first time in a very long time.
Many patients claim to have gotten a second chance at life after being able to sleep uninterrupted throughout the night. Several studies have measured patients before and after assessment of the quality of life after sleep apnea treatment and have found that after treatment, patients feel more productive and have improved intimacy in their personal lives.
Dr. Morgan’s patients all report to feeling much better after treatment. The fog they once felt that affected their day to day lives has been lifted. This is why Dr. Morgan cares passionately about his patients’ well being. He hears first hand every day the positive outcomes of treatment of sleep apnea.
Here is one of the many positive reviews that Todd Morgan, DMD has received after successfully treating his patient with Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
“Imagine snoring horribly for the last 30 years of your life. Imagine countless nights on the couch or waking up your spouse throughout the night. Now imagine a device that can cease all that! Sound good to be true? Well, Dr. Morgan and his awesome staff set me up with a mandibular device that did exactly that for me! His staff was professional and very helpful! I’m an example of success! Thanks, Dr. Morgan and staff…you’ve changed my life!” Tim from Oceanside
