I highly recommend the use of a dental appliance instead of a CPAP machine. The appliance makes it easy to travel, no headaches with batteries, plug in etc. Your spouse will not be turned off with the dental appliance when compared to having a mask. Dr. Priemer and staff are excellent!
Dr. Priemer and staff are always helpful and ready to answer questions when needed. Dr. Priemer is very knowledgeable and always recommends what is best for your dental health. Thank you!!
I’ve had the same appliance for several years. It has improved my quality
of sleep, I wake up rested and have more energy and do not fall asleep during the day. I exercise more regularly, have lost weight. It has improved my health both physically and mentally.
Starting with the oral Appliance. It gave me a new lease on life. Immediately I had a higher level of energy and alertness during the day. The Drowsy Haze that I had lived through for a number of years, had been renewed leaving me free to live and enjoy life as it is supposed to be. The appliance is the best thing to happen to me in life, I would recommend it to everyone.
When I was diagnosed with apnea, my doctor advised me that I would be necessary to use a nasal CPAP while sleeping. Initially, I found it did improve my breathing but it was difficult to sleep with due to the noise, the attached hose and the constricted feeling around my nose and mouth. I finally visited my doctor who suggested that I visit Dr Priemer regarding an oral appliance. Since I have been using the oral appliance on a regular basis, finding it to answer my apnea problem. After a few initial adjustments made by Dr. Priemer, the fit and the comfort allows me to have a good night’s sleep with minimal snoring. Other advantages I find are the convenience of the size and being able to store it in a compact case which can be put in my purse for travelling or easy storing in a small drawer. On total evaluation, the positive success of the appliance far outweighs any discomfort I may feel from wearing it and it is with much gratitude to Dr. Premier that I am able to continue living days with energy rather than with a feeling of tiredness and irritability in the morning and throughout the day.
A miracle has happened in my bedroom! No, unfortunately it is not George Clooney. It’s Dr. Priemer! You won’t believe the difference. I complained to him about his snoring for years. He never really believed that it was as bad as I said, until a couple of years ago when he went on a boys ski vacation and his buddies all had to buy ear plugs and even they couldn’t believe the noise levels. I have spent the last four years poking, pushing, and getting him to roll over so the snoring would stop momentarily and even making him leave and sleep in the guest room. I literally cannot remember when I have slept through a night over the past year. I have severe chronic sleep deprivation. It was making me fat. And this is the best part, he complained for the last four years that our dogs were waking him up five times a week to go out in the middle of the night, so he wasn’t getting a good night sleep. But guess what, now that he had the appliance it is silent. The dogs are asleep. He was waking up the dog. We are all sleeping much better. Thank you. A snoring husband is one of the top reasons women can’t sleep. And we know that women make the buying decisions in most families. You need to tell both your patience and your community about this Appliance and its Wonders on a regular basis, it really helps. It was expensive but the return is worth it.
Device has greatly improved my chances of getting a great night’s sleep. CPAP didn’t work for me, but this device does.
Since I started using the appliance, My Sleep Quality has noticeably improved. I awake much less frequently during the night. My wife reports my snoring is much reduced. The cost and minor inconvenience of the appliance is a small price to pay for a better night’s sleep.
I’ve been told by my wife that the sleep apnea symptoms have declined greatly. Occasionally I still snore with the appliance, usually when I am very tired when going to bed. I feel my sleep patterns have changed for the better. I feel like I get a good night sleep.
Before using the appliance, I would wake frequently and Rise feeling on rested. After using the appliance, I sleep through the night and Rise feeling refreshed.
After many months of unsuccessfully adapting to CPAP therapy, my orthodontist referred me to Dr Priemer. My apnea-hypopnea index dropped in a sleep study from 26 events per hour to 6 as soon as I was fitted with this device. My fatigue has disappeared. My advice to anyone diagnosed with sleep apnea is to try this before CPAP and certainly before considering any surgery. Thank you Dr. Priemer!
Combined with Flonase, to keep the nose passage open, this device has definitely helped my sleep get better. Also, to the great relief for my wife, it stopped my heavy snoring. Wearing this device did not caused any discomfort or muscle pain.
The diagnosis of sleep apnea and treatment via oral appliance probably has saved my life. I can now drive with confidence, I will not doze off, not to mention that my wife can now enjoy an uninterrupted sleep at night. Highly recommended.
My experience with oral Appliance therapy has very been very positive. I sleep much better and when I am without the appliance I’m very groggy all day. My partner tells me that sometimes I sleep so quietly, that she has to wake me to see if I am still breathing, as opposed to stopping breathing and waking her with my loud snoring to catch my breath. I know that CPAP is an answer to sleep apnea but I just could not tolerate it at all and this appliance is the best alternative. It has helped me tremendously. Dr Priemer and his staff are always so helpful if there is any need for any adjustments. I never have to wait.
For months I have been so tired it took three alarm clocks and about an extra hour to wake up. I didn’t know what the problem was until I went on vacation with a friend, a nurse. She assessed me to have sleep apnea which was confirmed with a sleep study, moderate sleep apnea about every 3 minutes. Since the first night I was wearing my Appliance, I now wake up before my alarm clock and feel refreshed. I cannot believe the difference. I am no longer dragging myself around all day. Most of all no snoring!!! Thank you so much Dr. Premier for improving my quality of life and potentially my health.
My husband was quite concerned because he thought I had died I was sleeping so quietly after using the Sleep Appliance. Thank you Dr. Priemer!
The biggest change I noticed was that I started sleeping better through the night. I normally wake up (fully) at least six times a night. Now I can even go a whole 8 hours and wake up only once. I have more energy than I used to have and feel less sleepy during the day.
While a CPAP machine is considered a standard treatment method, I found it a bit cumbersome to wear and was relieved when it was introduced to the oral appliance. I have been wearing it for about 10 yrs now. It has helped me sleep better and it is very convenient when travelling, a bonus. Dr. Priemer and staff are always very helpful and friendly. Dr . P. is good with answering questions and concerns.
