Treatment Protocol

If you’ve been diagnosed with a sleep related breathing disorder by a physician:

Be it snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome or sbstructive sleep apnea, please contact us for an appointment to be evaluated for oral appliance therapy (OAT). We will assess the likelihood of success for oral appliance therapy through a complete clinical examination, including determining the current health and prognosis of oral tissues that might be affected by the use of a mandibular advancement appliance. We then will go through your choices of appliances and disclose relevant fees. Rationale for appliance therapy will also be explained to you

If you have’t been diagnosed with a sleep related breathing disorder:

Please contact us for an appointment for sleep breathing disorder screening. As a result of this screening, we will have a better understanding for your potential to have a sleep related breathing disorder. If we believe you have a sleep breathing disorder, you may consult one of our trusted sleep physicians for a possible polysomnography test. Polysomnography testing is the gold standard to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea as well as other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome (RLS), and central sleep apnea (CSA). Medical insurance companies may possibly pay for part of your oral appliance therapy with a proper diagnosis and prescription by a sleep physician.
