Most people are familiar with snoring, but did you know that snoring could be a symptom of a life-threatening condition known as sleep apnea? Sleep Nashville is a local sleep apnea clinic that can help find a treatment solution that’s right for you. The following are some of the many benefits of a Sleep Nashville oral appliance:
A customized oral appliance stabilizes the lower jaw and tongue in a position that prevents your airway from collapsing all while still giving you the freedom of movement while you sleep.
Compared to other snoring and sleep apnea treatments, like surgery and CPAP, oral appliance therapy has design with patient comfort in mind—small, gentle and comfortable.
The entire Sleep Nashville team works hard from start to finish to limit your in-office visits to a minimum and keep your out-of-pocket expenses low.
At your initial visit, we evaluate your risk for sleep apnea and in some cases can provide you with a home sleep test that you administer in the comfort and privacy of your home. A board-certified sleep physician reads and provides a diagnosis for all of our home sleep apnea tests.
Your oral appliance is portable and can even fit in your pocket making traveling much easier. No more traveling with your CPAP where you need extra luggage and electricity at your destination.
Depending upon the severity of your sleep disordered breathing and your compliance with your oral appliance, you should experience immediate improvements in daytime sleepiness and overall quality of life.
Step 1: Free Screening & Evaluation
Assess your risk.
Sleep Nashville offers a FREE screening & evaluation of your risk for sleep disordered breathing at our state-of-the-art clinic. Your appointment includes a one-on-one consultation with a trained medical professional as well as 3D Imaging to analyze your airway.
Step 2: Sleep Study Test
Analyze your breathing.
A sleep study test will be used to determine if you suffer from sleep apnea. In some cases, you can even sleep in your own bed with a convenient, inexpensive home sleep test designed to analyze your breathing.
Step 3: Treatment
A board-certified sleep physician will analyze your sleep study results and prescribe treatment options, such as a comfortable oral appliance covered by most medical insurances. If you are not a good candidate for an oral appliance or choose to seek alternative solutions, we will help you find the best treatment solution for your personal needs.
