Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common sleep apnea diagnosis. This disorder is caused when soft tissue in the back of your throat relaxes during sleep and blocks your airway. As airflow stops, the oxygen level in your blood drops, causing your brain to kick start the breathing process, which is often accompanied by gasps or choking. Sleep apnea causes your sleep cycle to reset multiple times during night, which not only affects how you feel when you wake up, but can also lead to chronic conditions and can even be fatal if the case is severe and left untreated.

For many sleep apnea sufferers symptoms include:

  • Insomnia
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • High blood pressure
  • Labored breathing at night
  • Puffing sounds at night
  • Dry mouth upon awakening
  • Snoring
  • Jaw clenching, grinding
  • Morning headaches
  • Overweight/obesity
  • Irritability
  • Change in personality
  • Depression
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sweating during sleep
  • Heartburn
  • Reduced libido
  • Insomnia
  • Urinating at nighttime
  • Restless sleep
  • Snorting, gasping, or choking
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Confusion upon waking
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Diabetes
  • History of heart problems

Very thorough evaluation of my son. The technician had him do all the measurements with a game, which was great for a 6 year old. You can tell they have worked with many other children and know how to get what they need in an engaging way. I was very impressed.read more

The staff is AMAZING. So supportive and positive, it’s clear everyone enjoys what they do and have helped me tremendously. Dr. Klauer has uncovered a lot of underlying problems for symptoms I didn’t realize could be caused by my clenching and grinding. I feel better and better every day and continue to be fully supported by the staff during my treatment. They even bring me hot tea during my visit! Aesthetically pleasing facility, and sometimes you get to wear some sweet looking goggles. 😄 10/10 would recommend.read more

When I started with Dr Klauer I couldn't open my mouth wide enough to take a bite of a sandwich. I had constant jaw pain and always thought I had an ear infection. I had instant relief while the Dr was making the impressions for my mouth piece. I told him, and he gave me the 2 pink forms to use until my mouth pieces were finished! Worth every penny!read more

Doctor Klauer’s staff was amazing. I came in with horrendous pain and left feeling almost normal again! The staff was compassionate and well trained. Sally was very thorough and her chair side care was gentle and reassuring. Everyone was extremely professional. A few days later, when (after looking again at the imaging that was taken in the office) Sally spotted something that resembled a fracture in one of my teeth that the referring dentist didn’t see on the panoramic x-rays that were taken in his office prior to referring me to The TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centere. She brought it to my quick attention and advised me to call her immediately if I am feeling any additional pain. This only proves how skilled their staff is!! I hadn’t thought TMJ was even a real condition until I experienced my pain and was diagnosed. The treatment plan that was designed for me is sensible and I look forward to learning how to relax and not store built up tension. I understand it will be a process but I believe that I am in very good hands!M.KretchmerGranger, INread more

I was just in Dr. Klauer’s office for my yearly follow-up. Dr. Klauer and staff are so thorough and friendly it makes the appointment so easy and seamless. He always makes me feel like I am the only patient he has. I appreciate his attention to detail and his expertise on head and neck disorders. TMJ, ear, sinus, and especially airway problems. We are very fortunate to have him in our professional community. Thanks Dr. Klauer!!Kevin T Campbell D.D.S.read more

Dr. Klauer is not only a colleague of mine, but a mentor in the field of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine. His relentless dedication and thoroughness in continuing education and patient centered therapies are what set him apart from just about any other dentist/doctor I've ever met. That's saying a lot in that my father is a fantastic dentist as well. He has helped treat my condition and I have sent my own family members to him and would do so again.read more

From the moment I walked in the door, until I left a few hours later, I was showered with hospitality, education, compassion, and expertise. I did not feel more therapy was prescribed than needed but was given a course of action to relieve the symptoms of my diagnosis. The doctor and staff were very personable and made me feel very comfortable.read more
