How do you find out if you have sleep apnea? A sleep test. Dr. Fryer offers a Home Sleep Test. Let us help you sleep and live better.

Home Sleep Test

A sleep test is used to determine if someone has sleep apnea. It will measure your breathing, oxygen level and pulse rate. A sleep study yields a ton of information about your sleep quality including your level of sleep apnea- mild, moderate, or severe.

Our home sleep test is very easy to wear and best of all you get to wear it in your own home! We get the results back in a couple days. Based on your level of sleep apnea, we can determine the best course of treatment for you. With mild or moderate sleep apnea, Dr. Fryer can treat your sleep apnea with an oral sleep appliance.

Oral Sleep Appliance

An oral sleep appliance is a device that you wear while you are sleeping and it is completely inside your mouth. An oral sleep appliance works by simply holding your jaw in a forward position while you sleep to expand the space behind your tongue and help prevent obstruction and snoring. A recent clinical study found that worn nightly, an oral sleep appliance significantly reduces sleep apnea symptoms and improves quality of life.

Dr. Fryer offers the premier OPTISLEEP oral appliance. As one of the lightest and slimmest oral appliances available, the OPTISLEEP is designed to be discreet, comfortable and effective. The OPTISLEEP is digitally crafted from a lightweight, flexible and metal-free biocompatible material, unlike any other oral appliance, this specially designed device allows you the freedom and flexibility to talk and drink — a solution so comfortable, you’ll never want to go a night without it.
