Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs to help you understand what to expect during your dental sleep apnea treatment at Sarasota Dental Arts.

What is dental sleep apnea treatment?
Dental sleep apnea treatment involves using a custom-fitted oral appliance designed to keep your airway open during sleep, effectively reducing or eliminating the symptoms of sleep apnea.
How does an oral appliance work for sleep apnea?
The appliance works by gently shifting your jaw forward, which keeps the airway open and prevents the obstructions that cause sleep apnea episodes.
Is the oral appliance for sleep apnea comfortable?
Yes, each appliance is custom-made to fit your mouth, ensuring comfort and effectiveness. Most patients find them much more comfortable than CPAP masks.
Can dental appliances cure sleep apnea?
While oral appliances do not cure sleep apnea, they are very effective at managing its symptoms when used correctly. Consistent use is key to maintaining open airways during sleep.
How do I know if I'm a good candidate for dental sleep apnea treatment?
Good candidates include those with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, especially patients who are unable to tolerate CPAP therapy. A consultation and sleep study usually determine suitability.
What are the advantages of using a dental appliance over CPAP?
Dental appliances are quiet, portable, and easy to care for. They’re especially favored by patients who find CPAP machines cumbersome, noisy, or uncomfortable.
How long does it take to adjust to wearing the device?
Most patients adjust to the oral appliance within a few weeks. During this period, minor adjustments may be needed to maximize comfort.
How do I maintain my oral appliance?
Maintenance involves simple daily cleaning with a toothbrush and toothpaste or mild soap, similar to caring for a retainer.
Will my insurance cover dental sleep apnea treatment?
Many insurance plans cover oral appliances for sleep apnea treatment. We can assist you in verifying your coverage details.
What should I expect at my first appointment for sleep apnea treatment?
Your first visit will include a consultation to discuss your symptoms and treatment options. If you choose to proceed with an oral appliance, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to create your custom device.
