Snoring & OSA Therapy
Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea are created by changes in the airway that typically develop over time that restrict the natural flow of air while you breath. This is often caused by the airway being reduced in size or obstructed all together by a narrowing of the airway at the base of the tongue. Oral Appliance Therapy has been recognized as a useful option to maintain an open airway by restricting the rearward collapse of the tongue during sleep by holding, or advancing the lower jaw, in a more forward position. This option has been recognized by the FDA and most insurers to be a safe and reliable option for many patients suffering from Mild to Moderate OSA* (AHI <30). To qualify for coverage of Oral Appliance Therapy you will need to have a Sleep Study, either at home or in a facility based Lab. Please reference the Home Sleep Testing services we make available through participating physicians that can be arranged very conveniently and cost effectively at home.
Oral Appliance Therapy provides one of the most effective and cost effective treatments for Snoring and the SomnoGuard can potentially save thousands of dollars when compared to most lab-made appliances.
* Oral Appliance Therapy is also a useful adjunct to other therapies/treatments such as CPAP for patients with severe cases of OSA.
Custom-fitted, prefabricated device is easily fitted and eligible for coverage by many insurers.
