Patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea are often prescribed a CPAP (continuous passive airway pressure) to use when they sleep to enhance their breathing. It is not uncommon for patients who have this device to not use it because the sleep apnea devices are difficult to wear. A face mask is attached to a device which produces a continuous rush of air into the mouth and pharynx. Both the bulk of the face mask and the continuous rush of air are very annoying to many patients and they gradually stop using it. Such patients are referred to as being “CPAP Intolerant”. They know that it is medically necessary to use it but they cannot or will not use it.

Our office provides a bundled program which includes

  • Clinical examination and X-rays
  • Insertion of sleep device
  • Post-op evaluations
  • Total insurance coverage providing your deductible has been met
  • Does not, at this time, apply to Medicare patients, but will in the future

Depending on the level of apnea, often dental devices can be used in their place. To make an intraoral dental device for someone to wear, we will need the following:

  • A copy of the sleep study
  • A note from the treating physician saying that you are CPAP-intolerant
  • We will also need radiographs showing that you have enough remaining healthy teeth to support a dental device.
  • We will need radiographs of your jaw joints
  • Finally, we will need to do thorough sleep examination and evaluation.
  • All fees are usually covered by medical insurance.
