Dental Appliances for Sleep Apnea

Don’t let fear of treatment stop you from getting the sleep you deserve!

Treating sleep apnea has always been associated with CPAP therapy. Fortunately, dental devices are emerging as effective alternatives to traditional therapies like Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines. It’s worth learning about FDA-approved dental devices.

Dental devices at Clear Sky Sleep are a proactive step towards better sleep and improved well-being.

Why Does a Dentist Care About My Sleep Health?

The dental approach to treating sleep apnea, or dental sleep medicine (DSM), is gaining prominence for a good reason. It provides a more comfortable and user-friendly solution than the traditional CPAP machine. Dental devices have proven to be successful in helping individuals manage their sleep apnea effectively. This approach focuses on adjusting the positioning of the lower jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep.

Benefits of Dental Devices

Dental devices offer an array of benefits that make them an appealing option for managing sleep apnea.

Discover the numerous advantages of dental devices in managing sleep apnea:

Comfortable Sleep: Dental devices are typically more comfortable to wear than CPAP masks, ensuring better compliance.

Non-Invasive: These appliances are less invasive than traditional treatments, reducing discomfort and irritation.

Portability: Dental devices are small and lightweight, making them an ideal choice for travelers.

High Success Rate: Dental devices effectively reduce the number of apnea events during sleep, improving sleep quality.

Improved Compliance: Their comfort and convenience result in better compliance for consistent usage.

What are dental devices for sleep apnea?

Dental devices, also known as oral appliances, are a non-invasive and effective treatment option for sleep apnea. These custom-made devices are designed to help keep the airway open during sleep, preventing the airway collapse that characterizes sleep apnea. Dental devices are particularly suitable for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea or for those who have difficulty tolerating continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. Here at Clear Sky Sleep, we specialize in offering oral devices as a treatment option.

Does the FDA approve dental devices?

Yes, dental devices for sleep apnea are regulated and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA approval ensures that these devices are safe and effective for their intended use, which is to treat sleep apnea by helping to keep the airway open during sleep. When considering the use of a dental device for sleep apnea, it’s crucial to work with a dentist who can recommend, fit, and monitor the use of FDA-approved dental devices tailored to your specific needs. The approval by the FDA provides an added layer of confidence in the safety and effectiveness of these devices as a treatment option for sleep apnea. You can be assured that these treatments are effective. Our team is here to help.

Does insurance cover dental appliances?

Some medical and dental insurance plans may provide coverage for oral devices when they are deemed medically necessary for treating sleep apnea. It may be worth your time to contact your insurance provider to inquire about your specific coverage and any requirements or documentation needed for reimbursement. Medicare may also offer coverage for oral devices if they are considered medically necessary and meet specific criteria. Our office has experience working with insurance providers and can help you find a treatment plan that works with your insurance. We also offer financing and payment options.
