Do you suffer from sleep apnea? Our team creates custom night guards as a minimally invasive form of sleep apnea treatment. Custom-made night guards are often selected as the more comfortable solution for sleep apnea patients.
Who Needs Sleep Apnea Treatment?
There are a few key symptoms associated with sleep apnea. If you often wake up with a dry mouth or have difficulty staying asleep, it's possible you're experiencing this condition.
Patients who suffer from sleep apnea regularly complain of symptoms like:
- Heavy snoring
- Periodic loss of breath while sleeping
- Struggling to breathe while sleeping
- Constant fatigue and lack of energy
- Weight gain
- Dry throat
- Irritability & mood swings
Is Sleep Apnea Dangerous?
According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, 22 million people have sleep apnea in the United States alone. If you suspect you have sleep apnea or have already been diagnosed with the condition, you could be at a higher risk for:
- Hearth Disease
- High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
- Irregular Heartbeat
The benefits of starting sleep apnea treatment can be profound. Patients often find it easier to sleep through the night and report a higher quality of life!
What Treatments Are Available For Sleep Apnea?
If our sleep apnea dentists suspect that you may have sleep apnea, we will coordinate treatment with a sleep specialist to ensure you get the treatment you need!
At Dental Care of Spokane, we craft custom oral appliances that are designed to open airways during sleep. Generally, patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea prefer these mouth guards to bulky CPAP machines.
No matter what treatment route is best for you, Dental Care of Spokane will be there with you every step of the way!
We Bill Through Medical Insurance!
Most dentists do not bill through patients' medical insurance for sleep apnea treatment, but we do! This means that you can receive a thorough screening from the dentist you know and trust, without needing to seek out an outside specialist.
If you have questions about the medical insurance billing process, give our office a call to speak with our friendly patient coordinator.
