Sleep Apnea and Snoring

Treat Sleep Disorders In Fargo

Sleep apnea is a condition that affects your breathing during sleep. Those who suffer from sleep apnea experience pauses in their breathing that can occur 5 to 100 times a night.

Sleep Disorders – More Than Just Snoring

Sleep apnea causes you to spend more time in light sleep and less time in the deeper, more restful sleep that you need to recharge your energy and boost your mental acuity for the next day. This almost always results in daytime sleepiness, slow reflexes, poor concentration, and an increased risk of accidents.

Diagnosing Sleep Apnea

If you or a loved one have experienced any of the following symptoms, you may have sleep apnea.

“I would like to express my complete gratitude for Dr. Hetland’s team on asking questions about my sleep past. I learned there was another option than the CPAP machine: the oral appliance. I became a candidate for the oral appliance. My life turned around completely! I, all of a sudden, wasn’t tired all the time and loved going to sleep. The oral appliance became nothing; I have even forgotten I have it in my mouth. It was comfortable and I felt great after waking up. I truly believe I’ve had sleep apnea for years! I want to say God Bless to Dr. Hetland and his team for making my life whole.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Hetland and his team for several years. As a Sleep Apnea sufferer I formerly used a CPAP machine every night, but after a period of time I simply couldn’t take it anymore. I know many users have the same issue. I had read about the oral appliance as an alternative to the CPAP machine and consulted with Dr Hetland. He fitted me with the appliance (much like an athletic mouth guard) and I’ve never looked back. It’s been years and I sleep perfectly and couldn’t be happier. My sleep doctor is very supportive of the appliance too.

“I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this appliance as an excellent solution if you can’t deal with the CPAP machine. More importantly, I highly recommend Dr. Hetland and his team. They make the process a breeze, they are great communicators during the set-up process and they are always there to make adjustments to make the appliance such a great nightly experience. top suffering with your CPAP machine and call Designer Smiles!”
