Sleep Apnea Treatment

Are you a candidate for dental sleep apnea treatment?

Currently Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy remains the standard of care for patients with sleep apnea. Oral appliance therapy is an excellent alternative for patients that are dissatisfied with their current CPAP. Many turn to a dental solution for a less invasive and more comfortable treatment. Although oral appliances may be an excellent choice for some patients, below are a few facts you should know before considering oral appliance therapy. 

When is oral appliance therapy indicated?

Oral appliances are indicated for snoring and ONLY for mild to moderate sleep apnea, caused by a repetitive obstruction to the airway. Airway obstruction occurs because of an anatomical limitation such as a large or floppy tongue, excess tissue in the throat, obesity, nasal obstruction, or an enlarged uvula or tonsils. Sleep apnea severity is defined among other variables by the number of breathing pauses per hour of sleep, which may lead to low blood oxygen levels and may or may not involve snoring. Sleep apnea treatment options should be carefully weighed as this disorder can lead to serious and sometimes debilitating consequences, including among others, high blood pressure, stroke, congestive heart failure or diabetes.

Prior to electing any form of treatment, patients should undergo an initial evaluation with a board certified sleep specialist practicing in an accredited sleep disorders center.   A home study may be recommended which will determine not only the severity of the problem, but also provide a baseline to measure any future treatment effectiveness. Oral appliances are usually covered by medical insurance, rather than dental insurance.

Stan A.

"I’ve been getting my teeth cleaned at Dr. Taba’s office for the past few years and love being greeted by all of the positive smiling faces when I walk in. I have very sensitive teeth and Dr. Taba and the hygienists are always SO gentle and take extra care to make sure I’m never in pain. Dr. Taba’s genuine care and love for his patients shines through his kind demeanor and great attention to detail. I can always trust him to get the job done exceedingly well and ease my anxiety about being at the dentist."

"I came for a cleaning, exam, and X-rays while they were having a special. All three for $112! It had been over a year since I had been to the dentist and I had a few cavities that I was already aware of that would need to be filled. The cavities where confirmed during the cleaning and nothing else was noticed. Overall the cleaning and exam went great. They have a great staff on hand, a wonderful view of Lake Washington while relaxing in their massaging chairs. I was able to schedule a follow up visit for the cavities a few days after. This appointment was great as well! I will return for future dental work."
