Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) is an effective treatment option for snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can help improve your sleep, restore your alertness, and revitalize your health.
If you and your doctor decide that oral appliance therapy is the best treatment option for you, then you will be scheduled with one of our dentists who specialize in sleep medicine and the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Oral appliance therapy is covered by many insurance plans and is billed under your medical insurance.
Our dentists are part of our sleep medicine team and work closely with our physicians to treat snoring and sleep apnea. During your visit, our dentist will talk to you about the benefits of oral appliance therapy. You will also receive information on the potential side effects and the cost of therapy.
Oral appliances are customized using digital or physical impressions and models of your teeth. These models are sent to a dental lab where the appliance is made.
Once your oral appliance is ready, you will return to our office for a fitting. The dentist will adjust the appliance to maximize its comfort and effectiveness. You will also learn how to clean the oral appliance and maintain it. After this fitting, your sleep medicine team will schedule you for a sleep study to verify the success of the treatment or if any additional adjustments need to be made.
Treating your sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy is a great no-mask CPAP alternative. With help from our sleep medicine team, you can improve your health and Say Hello to Sleep Again.
