Don’t let your sleep disorder go undiagnosed and untreated. Sleep apnea was listed by Reader’s Digest as one of the top 10 diseases doctors miss.

I’m Dr. James Stewart, a Livonia dentist, and I’ve also studied dental sleep medicine. A sleep apnea oral appliance could eliminate your symptoms and give you renewed quality of life.

This finding is a serious concern because sleep apnea significantly impairs driving ability and can lead to highway accidents. Many truck drivers avoid diagnosis because the FMCSA’s policy states that once diagnosed, a driver must be successfully treated before he or she can resume driving a commercial truck.
