WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?


Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs when the throat repeatedly collapses during sleep. Some amount of airway collapse while sleeping is normal, but too much can be a problem. People with untreated sleep apnea can have long-term, increased risk for major health issues such as high blood pressure, obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.


HOW CAN MY DENTIST HELP ME WITH SLEEP APNEA?


We can help you because our dentists have been trained to diagnose and prescribe to patients with sleep apnea problems. We have assisted hundreds of patients in treating sleep apnea conditions.


SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT BY SOMNODENT


A SomnoDent sleep apnea oral appliance is a premium, custom-fitted dental device developed for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. It is an effective, comfortable, and durable alternative to CPAP therapy or corrective surgery. By simply wearing a SomnoDent while sleeping, your lower jaw (mandible) will be moved forward into a comfortable position, allowing relaxation of the tissues at the back of your throat and ensuring the base of your tongue does not collapse and block your airway, giving you a safe and soundless sleep. Most patients and practitioners prefer oral appliance therapy for its comfort, convenience and effectiveness.


DOES MY SLEEP APNEA DEVICE COVERED BY INSURANCE?


Yes in some cases.
