Meet with our team for our oral appliance therapy
Before our dentist can begin sleep apnea treatment, you will need to have your regular health care provider or a doctor that specializes in sleep apnea diagnose the problem. Typically, this is done through a sleep study. Following that study, the information will be sent to Dr. Sandra L. MacDonald, and she will use it to help find the right appliance for you. We will be happy to answer your sleep apnea questions and schedule you for a sleep study in Plymouth, Massachusetts. We invite you to learn more below.
Is a sleep study absolutely necessary?
Yes. Sleep apnea is a medical condition and our dentist will need a referral from a sleep doctor or your primary care physician before we can begin your treatment.
What if the doctor says I need a CPAP machine?
CPAP machines have been used for many years to relieve sleep apnea and its symptoms and they are often the default solution for many doctors. But if you want something that is less invasive, more comfortable and easier to use, and that can be taken with you anywhere you go, let your doctor know you would like to explore using an oral appliance. We will be happy to talk with our doctor about this option.
