What is oral appliance therapy?

Oral Appliance Therapy can be a highly effective therapy for snoring and sleep apnea and is a common alternative to CPAP therapy. A specially designed and adjustable, customized oral appliance repositions the jaw and tongue during sleep, creating support for the airway that tends to collapse during sleep.

How long will it take to get the oral appliance?

Generally, 2-3 weeks. Once a decision is made at your first visit to proceed with oral appliance therapy, 3D imaging (impressions), will be taken and the appliance insertion visit will be scheduled.

How does insurance cover sleep apnea treatments?

Yes! Most medical insurance plans cover oral sleep appliance therapy. However, insurance benefits for oral appliances may vary depending on the individual policy you have. The most efficient way to determine your potential benefits is to call our office and speak with our patient coordinator. It is important to know that this treatment is considered a medical procedure and will not be covered by dental insurance. Our goal, as always, is to maximize your benefits available and to minimize your out-of-pocket expenses.
