What are your thoughts on dental Daytime Nightime Appliances (DNA)?

RE: What are your thoughts on dental Daytime Nightime Appliances (DNA)?
I should clarify, the only surgery I'm considering is a frenulectomy (tongue tie release), which is a quick and brief procedure. This is step two of the three parts I listed above, in theory, it allows the tongue to better reach the optimum position at the roof of the mouth, for breathing.

The ENT surgeon cautioned against this, feeling it was unnecessary, and might lead to a painful recovery.


As for tolerating the CPAP, according to OSCAR data, I am a reasonably compliant user of it, and it is doing its job. However, I often wish to remove it while sleeping, and never wake up feeling refreshed, but still fatigued. I also don't like the idea of being reliant on a device for sleeping the rest of my life.
