Dr. Carl Steinberg and his staff will work in conjunction with
your sleep physician to help manage your snoring and sleep apnea
problems. A team effort has proven to be most effective when a
patient is searching for the CPAP alternative. Many who are CPAP
intolerant or just refuse to use CPAP will seek an alternative
in an oral appliance for snoring and sleep apnea. In fact, the
American Academy of Sleep Medicine has come to recommend oral
appliances for managing snoring and sleep apnea in patients with
mild and moderate sleep apnea and those severe cases where a patient
refuses to use CPAP or is CPAP intolerant.
At the first visit your medical history and polysomnogram (PSG
- sleep study) will be reviewed. A screening examination of your
periodontal (gums) health, tooth health (visual and x-ray), and
temporomandibular joint (TMJ-jaw joint) health will be performed.
Optimal snoring and sleep apnea management is achieved when all
of the dental systems are healthy and functioning well together.
A comprehensive examination will allow us to evaluate your specific
situation and discuss your treatment options. Then we know that
an oral appliance for snoring and sleep apnea management has the
best chance of long term success!
In addition to evaluation, a review of sleep hygiene, dental concerns,
oral appliance choices, costs, and insurance coverage will be
reviewed. After all is in order, we will proceed with making an
appliance to help with snoring, sleep apnea and healthier sleeping!
and Sleep Apnea can be
managed with the CPAP alternative!
