APNEA TREATMENT / M.A.D. (mandibular advancement device)
This oral appliance has improved my sleep apnea. Using the C-PAP machine caused a great deal of pain in my ears, sinuses, jaw and teeth. I'm grateful for this oral appliance; it has mad a difference.
I was referred to Dr. Carothers by the Oregon Sleep Clinic. I am very pleased with the 'mouth piece' I am using, much better than the C-PAP mask! Dr. Carothers' staff has been great too, very pleasant and friendly. Free coffee too! Everyone has been professional and it has been a pleasant experience. Now, if the insurance just pays........
Thank you Dr. Carothers and to your Associates for building and customizing for me and oral appliance to successfully resolve my sleep apnea related issues. The device is easy to use in keeping my airway open and getting a good night sleep for the first time in my life. The office associates have been friendly, diligent and timely at each and every visit. I am welcomed at the door and receive treatment in a professional manner. I appreciate Rob for covering the insurance related issues with me proactively so that there have been no surprises in working through the insurance process. I am now sleeping well through the night and my family also sleeps well now that the sounds of snoring no longer serenades them at night.
I got my appliance (MAD) about two months ago. Before I had to get up 3 - 4 times at night to use the bathroom, wake up tired in the morning, foggy thinking. Since I got the appliance I sleep through the night, wake up rested and love the feeling of not being tired when I get out of the bed.
I can't say enough about how I LOVE my new "M.A.D." After using a C-PAP device for over 20 years, I am free to move about in bed, read in bed and enjoy a full night sleep without the cumbersome hose and nose covering mask of a C-PAP machine. I am no longer embarrassed to sleep over in a family's home when I visit over night. I can continue to sleep if the power goes out and best of all, my partner does not have to put up with the noise of "The Machine", THANK YOU DR. DAVE!. I really, really cannot thank you enough for fitting me with my device; the M.A.D., Dr. Carothers and his staff make the perfect package!
Prior to getting the "MAD"(mandibular advancement device), I woke up every morning exhausted. I would yawn for at least 30 minutes after getting up. By mid-afternoon I was exhausted again. Now, I wake up awake and am well rested and ready to go! No mid-afternoon "blah" either. My husband sleeps better too, as I don't snore or stop breathing. I got these results even after the first nights use. Amazing! Thank you Dr. Dave.
