Sleep apnea treatment using a dental oral appliance as an alternative to CPAP (dental mouthpiece) has been registered by the FDA and may be used to treat sleep apnea when administered by a qualified dentist trained in Dental Sleep Therapy.

He has treated over 1,500 cases, ranging from the simplest to the most difficult.

Sleep Apnea Treatment Using Oral Appliances - Alternative to CPAP

Austin dentist, Dr. Martin Denbar, provides dental treatment for sleep apnea, using oral appliances as an alternative to or in combination therapy with CPAP.

Austin Apnea & Snoring Therapy wishes to welcome you to the website that can offer you more choices to treat your sleep disordered breathing problem. Over the last decade studies have shown that oral appliances offer patients a comparable treatment to CPAP for mild and moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome. Oral appliances alone or with Combination Therapy also can be a viable replacement therapy for individuals with severe sleep apnea who can not tolerate CPAP. If you are unable to wear CPAP for any reason, you now have an alternative therapy you can live with.

Central Texas has some of the best Sleep Medicine physicians in the state and I have had the privilege to work with most of them. You now have the best of both worlds, benefiting from an experienced team of medical and dental professionals working together to solve your unique situation. Most major medical insurance companies are now covering this therapy.

It has been said that it can take 10,000 hours of experience to become proficient at an endeavor. Austin Apnea & Snoring Therapy has the most experience and has treated the largest number of patients of any dentist utilizing Oral Appliance Therapy in the Austin area. If you are seeking Oral Appliance Therapy, you deserve the most knowledgeable and competent treatment. We welcome all new sleep patients and pledge to provide the highest quality care possible.

To improve your quality of life and health, Oral Appliance Therapy should be given equal consideration with CPAP for the treatment of mild and moderate sleep apnea.
