About 7 years ago I was diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnea, and put on a CPAP. After a year I was fed up with the mask and seeking alternatives. I had gone on a diet and dropped 25 pounbds, reducing my level of apnea to mild-moderate. I then got a Somnodent appliance and have used it for the last 5 years or so, with success. However, ever couple of years the device breaks off, which is nerve-wracking (and I got a back up, but does not feel the same).
I have been considering the pillar procedure and a possible way to end using the oral appliance (which additionally is causing some tooth problems). Has anyone here had it done and what was the result?
