  1. Great topic I need help with this. I wake up most of the night with this problem. Thank you Ron

  2. It have been a long time I can not hear your podcast! I am kinda interested with your topic. Hope can hear more new podcast from you!
    P/S: I was impressed with your picture for this topic :)

  3. There’s actually a way to grow the maxilla (upper jaw) and have the mandible (lower jaw) come along with it. This helps treat, and sometimes cures, sleep apnea and other sleep breathing problems by addressing the root cause. The appliance is called FAGGA or AGGA, fixed anterior growth guidance appliance, and is being used by dentist that have taken the necessary courses at LVI, the Las Vegas Instute. There is a patient detailing his journey with the AGGA and has recently posted pictures in his blog of his airway increasing. Let me know what you think of this Dr. Park I find it very interesting.
