Sleep Apnea & Snoring

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a medical condition, so medical insurance, not dental, is used to cover the cost of your oral appliance device.

Oral appliances can be used as the first line of therapy for patients who have been diagnosed with mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea that cannot tolerate their prescribed CPAP. Custom dental appliances for sleep apnea are covered by most medical insurance companies.

Together, we work with your physician to create a custom, comfortable device for you that’s so easy to wear, you’ll have the opportunity to get back to sound, restful sleep faster than you may think. The appliance moves the lower jaw forward and holds it there while the patient sleeps. In doing this, the tongue is also pulled forward and is prevented from falling back and occluding the airway. Call Dr. Ney today to see if oral appliance therapy is right for you!
