Sleep apnea and snoring can also be treated with a dental appliance that open the airway by bringing the lower jaw slightly forward.  The appliance is worn in the mouth during sleep and resembles a mouth guard that an athlete might wear.

Oral appliances are effective in eliminating sleep apnea in many patients, and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine has endorsed oral appliance therapy for patients with mild or moderate sleep apnea.

PAP devices are covered by most medical insurance plans.  Sleep Impressions offers Oral Appliance Therapy through a network of dentists specializing in sleep medicine and in most cases is able to bill your medical insurance in-network.
