"After almost 3 years of not visiting a dentist (due to not being able to find a comfortable connection with a dental group), I decided to make an appt with Grove Dental. I had heard very good reviews from many of my friends and colleagues. I can say that my 1st visit with Grove Dental went very smooth. All my dental visits anxieties were put at ease. Staff was very nice. My hygienist Tricia was so thorough in explaining every process and Dr. Johnson explained findings at ease. I am happy to have found my new dental group. I will be back."- D.S. / Google / Nov 23, 2022

Who Is a Candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when tissues in the back of the mouth relax into the airways during sleep, causing the repetitive cessation of breathing throughout the night.
Common signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include:
- Gasping for air or choking during sleep
- Waking with a dry mouth
- Frequent morning headaches
- Episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
- Insomnia or difficulty staying asleep
- Brain fog, irritability, or trouble focusing
- Daytime fatigue
You may be a candidate for sleep apnea treatment if you experience one or more of the signs and symptoms listed above. During your dental visit, our team can talk with you about any concerns and help determine if your symptoms might be related to obstructive sleep apnea.
How Is Sleep Apnea Treated?
Identifying the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea and snoring is conducted on a case-by-case basis. While sleep apnea is diagnosed by a medical doctor, the dentists at Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics are trained to detect the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea. They may work closely with physicians and other specialists to help determine the ideal option for treatment. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy may be the recommended course of care for obstructive sleep apnea. In minor cases of sleep apnea or when CPAP therapy is not well-tolerated, a custom oral appliance may be recommended to help keep the lower jaw more forward in the mouth, reducing the chance of soft tissue blocking the airway.
How Can You Care for a Sleep Apnea Appliance?
Should an oral sleep apnea appliance be recommended, special instructions on how to wear and care for your sleep apnea appliance will be provided by our clinical team. To achieve the best possible results with any sleep apnea treatment, it is important to wear your appliance or follow the treatment protocol precisely as recommended. If you have an oral appliance, we encourage you to bring it to your routine dental cleaning and check-up visits at Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics so that our dentists can ensure it continues to fit your mouth properly.
Does Insurance Cover Sleep Apnea Appliances?
Sleep apnea appliances may be covered in part by some dental plans. Our team is happy to provide a complimentary benefits analysis to help you maximize your coverage and minimize any out-of-pocket costs. To help make your family's dental care even more affordable, Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics offers a wide variety of simple payment solutions, including interest-free financing through Wells Fargo.
