Snoring Treatments At Nyc Sleepwell

Before offering treatment options, one of our Board Certified doctors and sleep specialists at NYC SleepWell will first take your history and perform a physical exam to determine if you require a sleep test to assess the severity of your snoring and possible sleep apnea.

What does a sleep test involve?

If we determine that a sleep test is the best course for you, we’re pleased to offer our patients a convenient overnight home sleep test. Our home sleep test involves wearing a small device with sensors while you sleep in the comfort of your own bed at home. A member of our sleep team will give you clear instructions on how to use the test device. The main advantage of a home sleep test is convenience, but it also provides the actual environment and conditions where you normally sleep in order to provide the most accurate test results.

What snoring treatments are offered at NYC SleepWell?

A sleep test may reveal no need for treatment other than weight loss or a change in your sleeping position and habits. However, if the sleep test does indicate that treatment is necessary for mild to severe sleep apnea, our treatment options include:

A custom oral appliance:

A custom-fit oral sleep appliance is an effective treatment option for snoring and sleep apnea. Worn only during sleep, the oral appliance fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer and supports the lower jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open airway. Many patients prefer oral appliances because they are effective, non-invasive, comfortable, quiet, portable, convenient for travel, and easy to maintain. If the oral appliance is determined to be the best treatment option for you, our skilled team of dentists and sleep specialists will custom create the appliance for you.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure device (CPAP):

The CPAP machine keeps your airway open during sleep by delivering a continuous flow of pressurized air into the throat. The CPAP machine requires the use of a sleep apnea mask that is connected to the CPAP machine. If you use a CPAP machine to treat your sleep apnea, you must use it every night. Many use CPAP with positive results, but others can’t get used to wearing the mask while sleeping, even after making adjustments or changing to a different style of mask. Also, a CPAP machine requires the use of distilled water — and you must travel with it on trips or any overnight excursions. For these reasons, many today prefer the custom oral appliance.

Surgery For Snoring Options:

When the other treatments have not worked for you, we may recommend surgery. There are many surgical options for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea, such as septoplasty, Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), genioglossus advancement, and hyoid suspension. The goal of all these procedures is to allow air to move through the throat more easily when you breathe, thereby reducing the severity of snoring and sleep apnea. Although sometimes a last resort to treat sleep apnea, surgery is increasingly popular in younger patients since it can offer a long-term solution and with a high success rate.

Does NYC SleepWell offer all of the snoring and sleep apnea treatments?

Yes. At NYC SleepWell, our team of sleep specialists includes Board Certified dentists (general and pediatric), orthodontists, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, ENT surgeons, and anesthesiologists in the event that a surgical option is recommended. Whether you choose a custom oral appliance, CPAP or surgery, we’re ready to help treat your snoring and sleep apnea with the most state-of-the-art and proven solutions – all in the convenience of our Manhattan office.

Does Insurance cover snoring and sleep apnea testing and treatment?

While insurance does not cover snoring treatments, many who snore do have sleep apnea, which is covered by most insurance companies in addition to Medicare. So, if your home sleep test does confirm a diagnosis of sleep apnea, you should be covered for both the test and subsequent treatment. It’s important to contact your insurance company to determine any deductible or co-payment amounts that will be your responsibility to pay. For your convenience, our insurance specialists at NYC SleepWell are always available to help you attain the required insurance information. Don’t let snoring or sleep apnea ruin your life. Start sleeping soundly tonight … with peace-of-mind for you and your loved ones.
