I recently got my oral appliance after being diagnosed with sleep apnea and it has helped me so much. I doubted it at first but I'm so glad I tried it. It's easy to use and you're not plugged into anything. I don't feel lazy or worn out during the day. I feel so much better with a lot of rest. Definitely glad I tried it. Painless!
New outlook on life

I went from snoring so loud you could hear me in other rooms even when the bedroom door was shut to absolutely no snoring whatsoever! I was always tired and felt run down. With my mouth pieces I now feel refreshed when I wake up in the morning. I can sleep on my side or stomach with no cumbersome Cpap machine. Dr. Akaad is wonderful; extremely knowledgeable and very helpful when it came to adjustments to my appliances. There is some jaw soreness at first but it does go away. I am very pleased with my choice of using the oral appliance.
Sleep Apnea Problem
Self-verified patient of Dr. Salem Akkad - Posted on April 6th, 2018
After being diagnosed with sleep apnea I knew there were two choices. Either I could use a Cpack mask or an oral appliance. After trying to use the C-pack mask I contacted Dr. Akkad's office. The entire experience was A+ from his staff and Dr. Akkad's diagnosis, treatment, fitting for an appliance and ultimately getting the appliance. I was most impressed with Dr. Akkad's patience in answering all my questions and how I was not treated as just another customer. The oral appliance is working and could not be happier in my decision for this treatment to my sleep apnea or to my choosing Dr. Akkad for the treatment.
