ORAL APPLIANCES FOR SLEEP APNEA AND SNORING
SLEEP APNEA ORAL APPLIANCE THERAPY
Our Sleep Program
We are currently taking new patients for sleep apnea oral appliance therapy. Patients must have a sleep study in order to be evaluated for oral appliance therapy. The initial appointment is 60 minutes.
Dr. Buchanan has extensive training in Dental Sleep Medicine and the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea with oral appliance therapy. She will do a thorough exam of your jaw to make sure you are a good candidate for this type of treatment.
Please contact our office for information regarding our sleep apnea program 415-460-1601 Line 2 or email@example.com.
Although we are not contracted with medical insurance companies, if you have a PPO we will do everything we can to help you with the process of submitting a claim to your insurance. Your sleep medicine specialist can write you a prescription for an oral appliance to treat obstructive sleep apnea and can start the insurance preauthorization process using CPT: E0486 for a DME (durable medical equipment).
Oral appliances to help you stop snoring
Dr. Buchanan fabricates several types of custom nightguards for snoring. Please rule out obstructive sleep apnea before making an appointment; speak to your doctor about a sleep study.
Your bed partner will be so happy that you made this appointment.
