SLEEP APNEA

You may not even know that you have sleep apnea.

Does your significant other say that you snore heavily, only to stop breathing suddenly throughout the night? Are you often sleepy during the day and never feel truly rested, despite getting a full night’s sleep? These could be signs of sleep apnea, a disorder during which your breathing pauses or becomes very shallow multiple times throughout the night due to obstruction in your airway.

The Big Deal About Sleep Apnea

Many people don’t know that they have sleep apnea, and even think it is harmless, but the disorder can cause low blood oxygen levels and even a severe form of congestive heart failure. New discoveries in technology show that modern dental appliances can not only ease the symptoms of sleep apnea but also help to ensure a full night of sleep and a longer healthier life.

Treatment For Sleep Apnea

The gold standard therapy for sleep apnea is wearing a C-PAP, but many people are intolerant to wearing the device. Studies show that sufferers with mild to moderate sleep apnea can benefit just as well with an oral appliance. An oral appliance is also prescribed when a severe sleep apnea sufferer refuses to wear a C-PAP.

Our Legacy Dental office team will absolutely submit all treatment and testing to your medical and dental insurance. Insurances are increasingly helping with the costs of these treatments and tests. Some of our patients do, however, choose to pay for it out-of-pocket so as to avoid the raising of insurance premiums once they see that testing has been done for sleep apnea. Whichever method you chose to use, we will file all the necessary paperwork so that you get the best benefit available to you.

If you want to get evaluated for sleep apnea, schedule your consultation with us today! Please remember to fill out all the required patient forms before your visit in order to save time during the appointment.
