Do you snore? Has your bed partner ever told you that you gasp and choke at night? Do you often wake up feeling groggy and have frequent episodes of daytime sleepiness? You could be suffering from sleep apnea, a serious and even life-threatening disorder. Joe Cochran, DDS can help. Not only is Dr. Cochran specially trained to help recognize and diagnose sleep apnea, but he can also create a comfortable and portable sleep appliance to help correct your breathing and let you get the rest you need.
Dr. Cochran offers both TAP and Somnomed/Somnodent appliances for our patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea. These appliances are perfect for those who struggle with obstructive sleep apnea or those who are unable to sleep wearing a bulky CPAP. And because the appliances are so small, they are also an ideal alternative to CPAP use when traveling.
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and can’t wear your CPAP, or if you snore and rarely feel rested, talk to us about how our South Bend sleep apnea treatment options can help you. Many of our patients are able to use their medical insurance to cover these treatments!
