Ever heard the term “sleep apnea” tossed around, but weren’t quite sure what it meant? Or perhaps you've been having some jaw discomfort and suspect TMJ or TMD? No worries! Posh Dental, with our trusted and skilled Dr. Joshua Lange at the helm, is here to provide both clarity and care.
Putting Sleep Apnea in the Spotlight: The Treatments We Offer
Sleep apnea is a sneaky little sleep disorder, causing breathing disruptions throughout the night. But here's the good news: We've got treatments to help you catch those Z's in peace.
While many folks might know about the traditional CPAP machine, we're thrilled to offer an alternative that's a tad less cumbersome: oral appliances. Think of them as a special kind of mouthguard, designed just for sleep apnea sufferers. They’re user-friendly, easy to clean, and pretty comfy to wear.
Yawning More Than Usual? Recognizing Sleep Apnea Symptoms
Curious if you might have sleep apnea? Here are some signs to look out for:
Loud, persistent snoring (and we mean loud).
Choking or gasping for air during sleep.
Daytime fatigue and constant yawning.
Mood changes, like irritability or depression.
Morning headaches or a dry throat upon waking.
Recognize a few? It might be time for a chat with a specialist like Dr. Lange!
Sleep Apnea Screening
Screening for sleep apnea is pretty straightforward. Dr. Lange and the team will chat with you about your symptoms, medical history, and potential risk factors. Sometimes, a sleep study might be in the cards. But fear not, whether it's in-lab or at home, our team will guide you through each step, ensuring you’re always in the loop.
Cost and Insurance
We get it; healthcare costs can be intimidating. But with sleep being so crucial to overall health, it’s an investment worth making. The cost of treatment can vary based on your needs and the type of solution best suited for you.
Many insurance plans do recognize sleep apnea as a genuine health concern and offer coverage. Our Posh Dental team is here to help you sift through the jargon and understand your benefits better. Remember, it’s our goal to provide top-tier care you can both trust and afford.
