Sometimes, a snore is just a snore. Sometimes, it’s something more. You may have obstructive sleep apnea.
For Dr. Roeder, it was something more. In 2008, he was diagnosed with triple severe obstructive sleep apnea. He and his wife both hated his CPAP machine. Then he found an alternative. He didn’t need a machine to sleep soundly through the night after all!
He’s now licensed to treat obstructive sleep apnea at Dream-Dentistry & Sleep Care in Quakertown, PA. He has treated several of his own patients who want to be free of their CPAP machine so successfully that sleep doctors often refer their patients to him.

Obstructive sleep apnea is when the tissue in the back your throat relaxes and limits your airway, or when your airway is partially blocked by your tongue. As you can imagine, not getting enough air can cause you to wake up several times throughout the night and even put you at greater risk for more serious health issues like:
Not to mention how crummy you probably feel if you’re missing out on a good night’s sleep every single night.
This incident occurs when your blood oxygen level drops below what’s healthy. Using a dental appliance, Dr. Roeder was able to take his sleep apnea incidents down to 3.4 per hour from almost 88 per hour!
Dr. Roeder is an alumnus of the notable Temple University Dental School in Philadelphia and has completed a general practice residency program at Sacred Heart Hospital. He started his own practice in 1988 and has been serving patients in Quakertown, PA for almost 30 years.
