Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Manahawkin, NJ

At Federici Dental, we're proud to provide oral screenings and home sleep study referrals to patients in and around Manahawkin, Stafford Township, Barnegat Township and Long Beach Island. For potential or current patients looking for assistance in diagnosing sleep disorders or sleep apnea, Drs. Dave and Joe Federici work closely with your primary care provider and local respiratory pulmonologists if we believe you're a candidate for an at-home sleep study. 

Once we receive your results, we'll work closely with you to determine the best course of treatment: CPAP (Controlled Positive Airway Pressure) or OAT (Oral Appliance Therapy).

Oral Appliance Therapy For Treating Sleep Apnea

The below photo shows our 2 OAT (Oral Appliance Therapy) options to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea, in place of CPAP Machines. The white appliance is known as a Panthera D-SAD appliance, and is made of a surgical grade nylon that is both stain and bacteria resistant. This appliance is FDA approved, and pending Medicare approval. With proper care, the Panthera D-SAD has a 5 year warranty. 

The blue appliance is called a Somnodent Herbst Advance, which is only approved and covered for Medicare patients. It is made of acrylic, and uses metal hinges to advance the lower jaw. Typically, this appliance has a 3 year warranty.

OAT works by advancing the lower jaw forward, and in some cases, opening the bite to create more airway space. By moving the lower jaw forward, the appliance can pull the tongue forward, and open the airway behind  it to breathe freely.
