What Is Sleep Apnea?
Identified as continual pauses in breathing during sleep, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a reaction to your muscles relaxing during sleep and gravity pulling your airway closed.

How We Treat Sleep Apnea
At Cape Vista Dental, we treat sleep apnea using comfortable, completely custom mandibular advancement devices. Our sleep apnea devices are more comfortable and easier-to-use alternatives to CPAP machines.
During your initial consultation, you will meet with our sleep apnea dentist to review your symptoms and medical history. He will take you through the treatment benefits and process. From there, we will assess your case to determine if you're a great candidate for our treatment method. We can prescribe an at-home sleep test and will also communicate with your sleep medicine doctor to ensure your treatment plan is an integrated one.
Our team will take digital impressions, x-rays, and gather all you need to start treatment. While you are with our doctors, our talented front office team will handle all insurance pre-authorizations, working directly with your medical insurance to maximize your benefits.
Soon after, you'll see us for a fitting appointment. During this appointment, our doctors will ensure that your device is as comfortable and effective as it was designed to be. In the following months, you will come in for adjustments and follow-ups. If you were referred through a sleep medicine doctor, we will be in touch with them for the duration of your treatment.
We'll Bill Your Medical Insurance!
Most dentists do not bill patients' medical insurance for sleep apnea treatment, but we do! This means that you can receive a thorough screening from the dentist you know and trust, without needing to seek out an outside specialist.
Fortunately, we accept many major medical insurance plans for sleep apnea treatment. If you have questions about the medical insurance billing process, please call today to speak with our friendly team!
