Dr. Dolin went the extra mile to improve my overall health, using his skills and knowledge to create a customized sleep apnea device.
Beverly Hassler suffers from sleep apnea, a serious disorder that causes her to stop breathing numerous times during the night. Untreated sleep apnea can lead to excessive loss of sleep as well as more serious health issues, including the increased risk of heart failure. Beverly tried using a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine to help her breathe more easily, but it created more problems than it solved. The machine was bulky, restricted her movement, and the breathing mask which covered her nose and mouth caused her increased anxiety.
Beverly’s doctor referred her to Dr. Dolin at Morgantown Dental Group for a customized sleep apnea device.
“I was a bit apprehensive about the sleep apnea device. I didn’t know what to expect or what it would look like, but it is great!" Beverly admitted, "The device looks just like a mouth guard. It is small, convenient, and comfortable. I now sleep peacefully, my anxiety is gone, and my heart doesn’t have to work overtime to ensure I am breathing properly–it’s literally my life saver!”
