Atrial Fibrilation and Sleep Study

Improve your Sleep and Quality of Life

You may be eligible to participate in a research study using oral appliance therapy to treat snoring, improve sleep and breathing.

Texas A&M University College of Dentistry researchers are conducting a pilot study on the effectiveness of an oral appliance to improve sleep quality, breathing & snoring.

Snoring can be a serious problem that can affect your health. Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of death in patients with sleep disordered breathing compared with patients without any sleep disordered breathing.

Eligibility: If you are a patient with diagnosed atrial fibrillation, have an implanted fibrillation monitor and at least 8 teeth per dental arch to support a dental oral appliance, you may qualify.
