CPAP IS NOT YOUR ONLY
I suffered with Sleep Apnea and its side affects for the past three
years. My prescribed method of treatment was the CPAP machine and a large face
mask. I tried the entire time with very limited success to make this work. I
saw my network doctor repeatedly because this treatment was not working for me
and to see if other options existed. He informed me that CPAP was the best
method of treatment and that I needed to continue to use it. I was falling
asleep continuously throughout the day, everyday. It was very difficult to stay
awake for an entire work day. Most days I slept on my lunch break.
This past November, I happened to see a TV show that discussed sleep apnea
and showed some oral appliances that could be used for treatment instead of the
Shortly after the first of this year, I had to see my regular dentist for
some dental care and I asked him if he did any appliances for sleep issues. He
did not, but referred me to Dr. Stellpflug.
I was a little skeptical at first, but as soon as I met with Dr.
Stellpflug and his assistant Meagan, I felt confident that this may really
work. They explained the process of fitting the appliance and the diagnostic
testing that was also done to ensure that the cardiac and respitory issues were
The past three months have been nothing short of miraculous. The results
are unbelievable. I get between 6 and 8 hours of good sleep every night. I am
not falling asleep during the daytime. I can read the entire newspaper without
falling asleep. I do not have to plan my day around nap times. It still amazes
me how good I feel. The tiredness and lack of energy are gone.
I cannot thank Dr. Stellpflug and Meagan enough for the help and
knowledge they have provided me. It really is amazing how far I have come in
three months. This is more than I expected.
I have sleep Apnea and I
couldn't wear my CPAP mask. I was having many issues, until I went to Dr
Stellpflug. The Dr and Megan got me all set up with my mouth piece. I was very
surprised at myself by adapting to it very fast as I don't like wearing
anything glasses, masks and etc. I have seen changes in my sleep pattern, I'm
not tired and grouchy during the day and no more 10 am and 2 pm naps. The best
thing with my mouth piece is, I travel a lot and it's easier to pack then a
bulky CPAP machine. I can get up to use the restroom, have a drink of water
with ease. The Dr and ladies in the office make me feel like an old friend when
I walk in the office. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Megan and Angel are
very sweet and make me feel relaxed. Thank you
For a while I have been
having issues with headaches. Dr Stellpflug had recommended a small mouth
appliance to only wear at night. Since I started wearing it I have not had a
headache! I am waking up feeling VERY well rested. I have been going to Dr
Stellpflug ever since I was a little girl, there is not one bad experience that
I have had. The staff is excellent!
I was diagnosed with sleep
apnea, but knew I would not use the CPAP as a treatment, so I searched for an
alternative solution. A friend of mine (also a dentist) suggested an oral
appliance a referred me to Dr. Stellpflug. Even with my severe bruxism, I am
able to wear an oral appliance at night that truly has changed my life! Instead
of waking up tired and dreading the day ahead of me, I feel rested and ready to
go! The difference that the oral appliance makes is unbelievable! Dr. Stellpflug and his entire staff are remarkable. They make you feel so
comfortable. Megan is outstanding! She dealt with my insurance company when
needed and was so helpful in so many ways. My entire experience with Dr. Stellpflug and his staff was nothing less
Dr. John Stellpflug and
Megan have given me a new lease on a good nights sleep.
My new light weight oral appliance
allows me to sleep in any position. I find comfortable with the healthful
benefits I had achieved with my CPAP.
My oral appliance is easy to
maintain and it's excellent for traveling - no bulky machine with all the
accessories. One mover important thing - Dr. Stellpflug's staff is knowledgeable, friendly , helpful and easy to work
with. If you're not satisfied with your CPAP , be sure to check them out -it
really does work.

Dr. Jack was the first dentist that really listened to me about my TMJ symptoms and took themseriously. I have lived with neck pain and headaches for many years, and Dr.Jack finally has me on the road to being pain free. I can't thank him enoughfor listening.I also absolutely love the staff that works with Dr. Jack. They are allso friendly and seem to really care about you as a person, not just your teeth.
