Once a patient is identified as a good candidate for oral appliance therapy, they are given the option to have a custom fit oral appliance constructed and maintained by a local dentist or they can be fit with the Somnoguard AP2 or SPX in our office.

Office flow:

  • If the Somnoguard is chosen, we do an initial benefits investigation and our team will phone to give the benefits breakdown to the patient
    • Self pay options available
  • Prior authorization is completed through the patient’s insurance if applicable to ensure coverage
  • The patient can then schedule an appointment with our office on Monday, Wednesday or Friday
  • They need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test before their appointment
  • On the day of their appointment they sign a consent form, pay their OOP, complete their fitting (see video), and take the device home with them immediately after their fitting.
  • They will be instructed on how to properly care for the device and make adjustments if needed
  • Adjustments are authorized by the provider to ensure safety and minimal side effects
  • They will follow-up with a provider 2 weeks after their fitting to assess comfort and efficacy
  • Oral appliance titration home sleep test is done to gain empirical data to ensure that the OA is effectively managing their OSA or snoring
