Breathe More, Live More, Thrive More
Our patients call us "The Dream Team." Sleep apnea and snoring are treatable, even for those who find it difficult to use c-pap devices.
Snoring is more than just annoying. Frequent snoring is one of the most common and telltale signs of sleep apnea, but it's important to point out that NOT everyone who snores has the condition. However, if a person typically snores and experiences other sleep apnea symptoms like daytime fatigue and chronic morning headaches, then the first step to relief is a sleep test or screening from our doctors.
Is sleep apnea therapy covered by insurance? Yes, it can often be partially covered by medical insurance as well as plans like Medicare. In the case of oral appliance therapy, even though the treatment is being provided by dentist like our doctors, a patient will need to use medical insurance to help pay for it, not dental insurance. The is because the appliance is being used to address a medical issue as opposed to a dental one.
Are you dealing with sleep apnea? About 80% of cases are undiagnosed. Beyond making someone feel exhausted al the time, sleep apnea has been shown to increase risk for virtually every type of mortality you can think of. Thankfully, it is very treatable. Our doctors have many years of experience providing sleep apnea care.
