Mike has been a patient at Astoria Dental Group for nearly two decades. Because Mike suffers from sleep apnea he can’t rest comfortably at night. After seeing multiple specialists and even trying a CPAP machine, Mike still couldn’t find relief from his disorder. After fitting Mike’s mouth for a special oral appliance Dr. Degel was able to shift Mike’s jaw forward, allowing his airway to remain open.
