Sleep apnea is a sleep condition that is common but sometimes underestimated. Sleep apnea is characterized by numerous pauses during sleep. These pauses, called apnea, can impact your physical and mental health in various ways.
Common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring or making noises during sleep, drowsiness or exhaustion during the day, and frequent headaches. Dr. Enfinger and his team are committed to delivering effective sleep apnea solutions to his patients to safeguard their overall wellness.

Sleep Experts Say…
Our patients deserve the best, so we work with sleep specialists who know everything there is to know about sleep apnea.
Our specialists understand the risks associated with sleep apnea. People with sleep apnea often suffer from low oxygen levels and insufficient sleep for optimal bodily function.
Sleep apnea triggers severe health problems and decreases overall life quality. Sleep apnea is linked to:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Increased risk of motor vehicle accidents (about 3x)
- Decreased job performance
- Mood swings and depression
- High blood pressure
- Decreased libido
- Morning headaches and dry throat
If you snore, it’s important to seek out the root of the problem. Our sleep apnea experts can help you analyze your health and determine if you suffer from sleep apnea or snoring alone.
They are also aware of the best treatments available to you. One of the best ways to treat sleep apnea is with a noninvasive oral appliance.
Comfortable Oral Appliances
Oral appliances fit like a retainer, and work by keeping the jaw and tongue forward. A properly positioned jaw means an open airway, so you can breathe easily during sleep. The same way a door stop prevents a door from closing, an oral appliance prevents your airway from collapsing.
Your oral appliance will be custom-fit for your mouth. This conservative treatment will allow you to achieve restful sleep and proper oxygen levels again.
