The most common symptom of sleep apnea, is loud snoring at night.

See What Patients Are Saying About Michael Roessler

  • Dr. Roessler, It was hard to envision what dental work could do for my awful smile. After the metal braces, my teeth were straight but chipped and yellow. They were so ugly. After the caps were put on, my whole appearance changed. I finally had beautiful white perfectly shaped teeth. It looked like I took excellent care of my teeth my whole life. My personality changed. I talk and smile more now. Thank you to the team who created my new smile, Dr. Roessler, Dr. Burkey, and Dr. Vravick.
