Sleep Apnea Treatment

What Is Sleep Apnea Treatment

What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Sleep apnea is one of the more serious sleep-related disorders in the world. It affects millions of people worldwide, and can lead to a range of medical conditions, in addition to causing loud, disruptive snoring. Sleep apnea treatment can easily be accomplished by using a simple mouth guard-like oral device. These devices are easier to wear when compared to a CPAP machine, and are just as effective.

Why is Sleep Apnea Treatment needed?

If you continually fail to treat your sleep apnea, it will eventually begin to affect your quality of life. You may feel exhausted throughout the day, and find it difficult to spend time with family and friends, or concentrate on work. With sleep apnea, you are more susceptible to developing other conditions such as type two diabetes and heart disease. Treatment is easy and effective when using an oral device that is worn each night.

Who is a candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?

We can go over your medical history and sleep study reports to determine if you might need sleep apnea treatment. Most patients who have mild to moderate sleep apnea will benefit from this type of treatment. We recommend treatment if you have sleep apnea symptoms such as loud snoring and daytime exhaustion and lethargy. With the help of an exam, we can identify problems associated with your sleep apnea to determine the best type of treatment device for you.

What happens during Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Impressions are taken and used to make your very own oral device. This device is fitted to your mouth to ensure it’s comfortable. The device is worn like a mouth guard, but it works by holding your jaw in a position that opens up your airway. This makes it easier for you to sleep and breathe at night, and reduces loud snoring. You will need to wear the device nightly so that it’s effective. You can have the device replaced whenever it shows signs of disrepair or damage.

If you think you might need treatment for your sleep apnea, call our office today and we will be happy to answer your questions.

Amin Salvi Dental
Is Now Open!

The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have missed seeing you, chatting with you, sharing stories with you and laughing with you. We are SO excited to finally be able to invite you back to our office!

As you already know, Amin Salvi Dental does not cut corners on safety and technology. We have always prided ourselves in exceeding the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for infection control measures. During this closure, we decided to go above and beyond that by adding further safety measures, which have been outlined below. The comfort and safety of our patients, of our team members, and of our own families remain our top priority.

  • All essential paperwork (including a COVID-19 screening form) along with financial agreements are to be done prior to your appointment. We will be texting and emailing the links for the forms to be filled out at home or on your mobile device. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or feel ill, please reschedule your appointment and call your physician.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car and text or call the office. We will inform you when to enter the office so we can maintain social distancing protocols
  • When entering the office, it is mandatory to wear a mask or face covering. Although county guidelines are not as strict, we maintain this requirement for the safety of everyone. Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we cannot provide masks. Should you require one, we will charge you $1 for the mask.
  • Patients must arrive to their appointment alone without family/friends. A single guardian will be allowed for minors, elderly and those with special needs or requirements.
  • We will be taking your temperature when arriving to our office and recording this in your records.

Here are a few additional things we are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  • We have installed air purification systems in the main operatories
  • We have installed sneeze guards at the check-in and check-out areas. We request that when you are required to talk to the front desk administration, you stand behind those.
  • Before appointments, we will use a medical peroxide pre-rinse which has been proven to help kill virus particles

We will have new scheduling guidelines

You will be hearing from us shortly as we are rescheduling routine hygiene and treatment for everyone. As you can imagine, we have a large backlog of cancelled appointments so we appreciate your patience through this process.

If you have any immediate concerns, we request not to call the office but text us at the office number or email us at

Due to the new protocols for physical distancing in the office, we may have limited availability of appointments. Due to this we require a minimum 48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. This allows other patients, who have been waiting, to be seen. Please be courteous to others.

For many procedures we will also be requiring a reservation fee in advance. This fee will be applied to your deductible or co-pay for the treatment and is not an additional fee of any kind.

We look forward to seeing all of you and catching up on the activities you have been doing to keep busy during this downtime!
