What should you do if you think you might have sleep apnea?
If you suspect you’re suffering from sleep apnea, do the following:
- Begin by consulting your primary care physician for screening. After it is accurately diagnosed, your care provider will discuss with you the available treatment options for your condition. It is only after an oral snoring device is recommended that you’ll be referred to a sleep dentist
- Upon visiting your local dentist, you’ll be told to bite down on a bite kit so that your dentist can use the impression to create an oral appliance that precisely fits your mouth. He or she will then place an order for your mouth guard, which may be delivered directly to you on a later date, or you might have to collect it yourself
- After receiving your mouth guard, occasionally follow up with your sleep dentist to monitor progress
