Sleep Apnea Oral Device and Medical Insurance

Sleep breathing disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea, can lead to very serious medical conditions. We use several tools in our practice to screen for these conditions, and we work with board certified sleep medicine physicians who diagnose sleep disorders and make treatment recommendations.

While CPAP is considered the optimum treatment for sleep apnea, a large percentage of patients who try CPAP find that they are intolerant of the apparatus or have difficulty using the device. In those cases, an oral device, such a Somnomed, may provide the necessary assistance to facilitate easier breathing all night long.

With proper diagnostic protocol by a sleep physician, Dr. Moreau can provide oral sleep devices and we can even handle the paperwork required to file a claim with your medical insurance carrier. This can greatly reduce your out-of-pocket expense and lead to a better night's sleep for you and your loved ones, more energy during your waking hours, and a longer, fuller, healthier life for you.

If you have seen a sleep physician and have had a polysomnogram sleep study already, ask us if an oral device might be a good option for you. If you have not seen a sleep physician yet, ask us to screen you for signs and symptoms that may indicate a sleep breathing disorder requiring medical attention.
