At Home Sleep Test
A COMFORTABLE ALTERNATIVE – If during your consultation it is suspected that you may suffer from sleep apnea, we will provide you with a convenient and accurate home sleep test designed to assist in the diagnosis of sleep-disordered breathing. In the comfort of your own bed, you’ll wear the testing device while sleeping. A Board Certified Sleep Physician will interpret the data and we will contact you to discuss your results.
Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health.
Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is:
- Easy to wear
- Convenient for travel
- Easy to care for
Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway.
Oral appliance therapy is an effective non-invasive treatment that fits easily into your lifestyle. Your dentist will recommend the oral appliance that is best for you. Oral appliance therapy is covered by many medical insurance plans.
A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device is often recommended for patients who have sleep apnea because it is highly effective – in theory. In practice, however, many patients find their CPAP masks to be cumbersome and anxiety-inducing, leading them to abandon the treatment and continue to suffer from the effects of sleep apnea. If you’ve given up on your CPAP mask, you should explore oral appliance therapy as a possible alternative treatment. This approach eliminates many of the barriers associated with the CPAP.
