What is the Snore No More Program?
Our dedication to treating our patients with sleep related breathing disorders has allowed us to develop a program and systems that support our patients through the process of education, diagnosis and treatment of a condition that is commonly misunderstood and often under diagnosed.
Snore No More allows our patients to use a custom oral appliance that is less expensive, easy to wear and often just as effective as the more expensive dental sleep appliances that are often covered by medical insurance.
Through this program we are able to help our patients that are not diagnosed with sleep apnea and have fewer risk factors associated with this condition as a treatment for those with primary snoring issues. Treatment of the patient with mild snoring is often critical in preventing the progression of the condition of snoring into a more serious diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea.
Our screening process attempts to sort out the snorers from those with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) through 3D imaging, biometric measurements and subjective assessments.
Many patients will avoid diagnosis of their sleep related breathing disorders because they do not want to go to an overnight sleep lab and deal with the hassle of the paperwork and insurance. Our goal is to help those patient gain the education, assistance and diagnosis that best serves them and their overall health by providing them with a low risk, inexpensive but thorough assessment by a board certified dentist to determine the severity of their condition without a huge commitment.
The Snore No More assessment includes:
- 3D volumetric airway assessment through the use of ultra-low dose imaging
- Dental evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for oral appliance therapy
- Calculation of Body Mass Index
- Evaluation of other relevant medical conditions linked to obstructive sleep apnea
- Careful evaluation of patient surveys to determine additional risk factors that can develop due to lack of treatment
- Neck circumference assessment as a risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea
- Appropriate recommendations for additional testing and treatment
