Sleep apnea and snoring can be treated with a dental appliance that opens the airway by bringing the lower jaw slightly forward. The oral appliance is worn during sleep and resembles the mouth guard of an athlete. The therapy is effective for many patients, and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine has endorsed for mild or moderate sleep apnea.
OAT 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.
