Frequent, loud snoring may be a sign of Sleep Apnea, a common and potentially serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts as you sleep. Not everyone who snores has Sleep Apnea, and not everyone who has Sleep Apnea snores.
The biggest indication is how you feel during the day. Normal snoring doesn’t interfere with the quality of your sleep as much as Sleep Apnea does, so you’re less likely to suffer from extreme fatigue and sleepiness during the day if you have simple snoring as opposed to obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). If you are a frequent loud snorer, then you are at risk for OSA and should be tested as soon as possible.
How do I know if I suffer from Sleep Apnea?
Snoring can be a very good sign you may have OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) however, It can be tough to identify Sleep Apnea on your own, since the most prominent symptoms only occur when you’re asleep.

Are Pure Sleep Services products the same as other devices sold directly to the Public through TV, Internet or over the counter?
Absolutely not. Products sold directly to the public are off the shelf over the counter products that are not suitable to the individual needs and possibly not medically approved or safe.
For example, the mouthpieces are not custom made for individual patients, have no or limited adjustability, are generally less comfortable and may even be harmful to by causing jaw pain or TMD. There is significant danger in treating a patient’s snoring without assessing the possibility of more serious underlying medical issues.
