Discovering a Good Night’s Sleep
Living with sleep apnea can quickly alter the way you feel when you wake up from a disrupted night’s sleep and it can have major effects on your health. Struggling to sleep at night, waking up breathless, snoring loudly, and feeling drowsy the next day are all signs that you’re suffering from this sleeping condition that affects more than 20 million Americans.

Oral Appliances & Other CPAP Alternatives
Each one of our patients deserves personalized, unique care. For those looking for a convenient, adaptable alternative to a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine, Dr. Pearson offers custom-made oral appliances to help manage your sleep disorder.
Oral appliances are worn over the teeth, in both the upper and lower jaws, and are designed to help open the airway while patients sleep. This is done by moving the lower jaw forward, preventing soft tissue from collapsing in the airway that is causing an obstruction.
Oral appliances made by Dr. Pearson are:
- Small, silent, and subtle
