2) What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
The most common form of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea is just how it sounds – an obstruction in your upper airway that limits breathing. Despite its popularity, it may often go unnoticed – written off as simply a poor night’s sleep or general feeling of tiredness. Sleep apnea problems are often only noticed by those who witness the breathing troubles or frequent awakenings of the patient in question.
3) Is My Oral Appliance Covered Under Medical Insurance?
Typically, for snoring, the treatment will not be covered, as snoring is not a diagnosed medical condition. Sleep apnea and obstructive sleep apnea, however, are determined medical conditions and will often be covered under medical insurance. With a proper physician’s diagnosis and a sleep study results, your oral appliance should be covered under medical insurance.
4) How Serious are Sleep Apnea Problems?
Sleep apnea problems should be taken very seriously. These problems can go well beyond just a general lethargic feeling throughout the day. The lack of sleep and lack of oxygen to your brain can drastically increase your chances of various health problems, not to mention your likelihood of being involved in an automobile accident.
