NO. As your Crawfordsville dentist, we offer a portable and easy way to have a sleep study done in the comfort of your own home and, most importantly, your own bed. A portable monitoring device is mailed to you with all the equipment and instructions. You wear it one night and return the equipment the next day in a prepaid postage envelope. It was just that simple and easy.

The treatment options for sleep apnea vary depending on the severity of the problem. Someone with mild or moderate sleep apnea may benefit from wearing a dental appliance. The appliance looks similar to an athletic mouthguard or retainer and repositions the jaw and tongue forward to improve airflow. It oftentimes is covered by insurance and Medicare and may require very little out-of-pocket expense.

Treatment for severe sleep apnea requires more aggressive management, which may include the use of a CPAP machine.
