How is Sleep Apnea Diagnosed?

Sleep Apnea is diagnosed by a physician, ENT, or sleep physician. A sleep test is required in order to make a diagnosis. Typically a polysomnograph test, the most comprehensive type of sleep test, is recommended and done at a sleep center or sleep lab. Recently, home testing has become approved by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine for the diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. There is much debate in the medical community about which type of test is the most preferable, so Dr. Marc works closely with you and your physician to determine the most appropriate test. At Newman Family Dentistry, we have the ability and credentials to offer a home sleep test for your convenience. Dr. Marc will work closely with you and your physician to help guide you to a long and healthy life!

How is Sleep Apena or Snoring Treated?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea can be treated by:

  1. Weight Loss
  2. Sleep Position Therapy
  3. C-PAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure)
  4. Surgery
  5. Oral Appliance Therapy (Dental Device)

What is Oral Appliance Therapy?

Oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea utilizes an oral appliance to adjust the position of your jaw and mouth and keep the airway in your throat unobstructed and opened. While there are some over-the-counter dental devices available, a custom-made appliance is typically more comfortable and treats the sleep apnea problem more effectively.

An office visit to measure you for your custom oral appliance is the first step, followed by additional visits to ensure correct fit and effectiveness of the device. Correct and consistent use of sleep apnea therapy can often eliminate the need for C-PAP in cases of mild and moderate sleep apnea; in severe cases, an oral appliance can help C-PAP operate more effectively.
