Our dentist provides innovative treatment for sleep apnea in Provo, Utah. Call today to learn more.
Your obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can only be diagnosed by a sleep physician after you have had a sleep study. There are two types of sleep studies:
- Polysomnogram – In-lab sleep study
- Out-of-center sleep study (OCST) – Home sleep test
In-lab sleep studies are inconvenient but are the gold standard. Insurances often allow home sleep tests because of their ease, affordability and accuracy. Basically, in-lab tests have more accurate data, but home sleep tests record more natural sleep, as you are in your regular environment. Because we would like to lessen your out-of-pocket expense, our dentist and team will help determine which test is best for you. Home sleep tests are usually our preference because they are very diagnostic as well as being painless, safe and much less expensive. To ease your access to testing, we have 3 home sleep test units that you can easily check out and use. Call for details and scheduling.
The results of your sleep test will be sent to a sleep physician so you can be diagnosed for severity and treatment options. This diagnosis allows Jeppson Dental to help you decide which type of treatment is the best fit for you. See Your Options: Oral Appliance Therapy vs. The Vivos System vs. CPAP. Children’s treatment can also be billed through Phase 1 orthodontic coverage on many dental insurances. We will work with you to maximize your coverage.
