If you think you get enough sleep but are still tired during the day, you need this book. Never anywhere have I found a more comprehensive treatment of the relationship between sleep disorders and oral features (like the size and shape of your tongue) and dental factors (like grinding one's teeth at night).Review from
The book is a gold mine of useful information such as: 1) checks you can do yourself to see if your anatomical structures in your mouth might make you susceptible to sleep apnea; 2) insurance coverage for oral devices that can in some cases prevent sleep apnea, including hints on fighting your insurance company to cover such devices (they fall under medical, not dental insurance); 3) detailed information about MADs (mandibular advancement devices) and TRDs (Tongue Retaining Devices) and relative prices (my own dentist quoted me a $3500 price for a MAD if insurance did not cover it) 4) effects on sleep apnea on overall health and state of mind; 5) testing for sleep apnea; CPAP and APAP devices; appendix of useful links for specialized information on sleep and dentistry; 6) list of Medicare approved devices (you still need a sleep study though); 7) details about sleep studies; 8) exercises for sleep-disordered breathing; 8) description of surgical treatments for sleep apnea, and much more.Review from
This is one of the most useful books I've read in a long time. Being a victim of sleep apnea, this was found to be very useful. Waking up in the middle of the night a few years ago, gasping for air, not knowing what was wrong, scared me a great deal, so felt it was time to make Doctor appointment. He then suggested a sleep study, where it was found that sleep apnea was the problem. Being diagnosed with mild sleep apnea, I was told I didn't need to wear a mask for now, but that it would eventually get worse as years go by. Trying to find a solution before things became worse, this book came into view, which was a huge blessing. After reading it, and following Dr Burhenne's advice, it has changed the quality of this life tremendously.Review from
