Patients with chronic snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea can benefit greatly from the appliances offered in our center. Although traditional breathing devices (CPAP) are the gold standard for sleep disorders, often patients are unable to tolerate the device. We have been providing oral sleep appliance care for nearly 15 years, achieving a 90% reduction of snoring and sleep apnea.

INSURANCE AND FEES
With proper sleep studies and physician referral letters, most medical health insurance companies cover a portion of the costs of Dental Appliance Therapy for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. These companies generally do not allow coverage for treatment of snoring only. Our office will assist the patient with medical insurance claims. Dental insurance coverage is not available for this service. The patient is responsible for the entire fee at the time of the appliance delivery. Our Center has interest free financing plans available. Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
In clinical studies, physicians and dentists have found that Dental Sleep Appliance Therapy in experienced hands can dramatically aid in the reduction of apnea events and snoring. The Center for Dental Sleep Appliance Therapy offers you confidence that experienced professionals understand the significance of sleep disorders and the proper protocol for treatment.
The Center looks forward to working with you in the future. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
There are no fees for the initial consultation.
