How can a dentist treat sleep apnea?
For decades, dentists have been able to successfully treat patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) using custom-made oral appliances which keep the airway open during the night. This method has been thoroughly researched and found effective in multiple studies, and it’s an excellent option for patients who either need OSA treatment or are CPAP intolerant.
Will you accept my dental insurance?
Yes, we work with and accept most major dental insurance plans. To learn how we can use your particular plan to help you save at your next appointment, just give us a call today with your policy information handy.
