Did palatal expansion improve your sleep quality?

I have problems with sleep insomnia and have a difficult time falling asleep. For those who have used a palatal expander, how did your ability to sleep and sleep quality change?

My IMW is currently 3.7 cm.

It cured my snoring.

I do assume I sleep better, more REM sleep, but I haven't taken a sleep test to establish that.

edit

I can't remember where I read it, but Vivos argues that insomnia can be driven by apnea, and the stress you experience from apnea events.

No idea if that's true, or how they established that.
