Dr. Lange, What a difference your diagnosis of my sleep apnea has made. I had the dental appliance made. I have been using it very successfully for several months now. I sleep better, get up much less frequently, don’t wake my husband, and have more energy. Thank you again for your excellent education regarding this condition. I will be sharing what I learned with others who may be interested. Blessings, -JB
