Frequently Asked Questions

How does a doctor diagnose sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is diagnosed by a sleep study, a test that can be used to detect sleep issues. A sleep test can be performed either in a special sleep clinic or through an at-home test. 


Dentists can often tell when a patient may have an issue such as sleep apnea. That’s because a dentist is specially trained to see abnormalities in the mouth and throat. Your dentist likely looks at these areas more than anyone else in your life, so they’ll be able to tell if you’re at risk for a health condition.

How do you treat sleep apnea without CPAP?

An oral appliance is a great alternative to CPAP for people with sleep apnea and snoring. For most people, oral appliances are just as effective as CPAP machines. But oral appliances don’t come with all the drawbacks of CPAP machines.


Oral appliances are small, quiet, and convenient. Yours will be custom-created for you based on scans of your mouth, so you’ll be able to sleep comfortably with it.
