Sleep Study: You should get a sleep study done either at a sleep study center(best) or have your doctor order at home sleep study (as long as it has some form of positional monitoring) to get an accurate diagnosis first. Bad morning breath can have many causes that most dentists can help you with but severe snoring can mean sleep apnea and should be evaluated first.

You may have: another problem other than sleep apnea. Get yourself to a sleep center and get a sleep study. Then they will know the problem and can fix it.
