At DentalCare Carnegie, we recognize the crucial role we can play in treating sleep-related disorders, such snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Under the expertise of Dr George Klein, we are able to offer comprehensive care for patients with sleep disorders that involve dental issues or can be treated with dental interventions.
Here's what you can expect from our internal sleep clinic:
Diagnostic Services: We offer and coordinate home sleep apnea tests (HSAT) to diagnose conditions like OSA or other sleep-related disorders.
Customized Oral Appliances: We design and provide customized oral appliances. These devices, such as mandibular advancement devices (MADs) or tongue retaining devices (TRDs), are used to treat snoring and mild to moderate OSA by repositioning the jaw or tongue to keep the airway open during sleep.
Treatment Planning: We work closely with sleep specialists to develop comprehensive treatment plans for patients. This can include lifestyle modifications, weight management, positional therapy, and the use of oral appliances.
Follow-up Care: Patients receive ongoing care and follow-up appointments to monitor the effectiveness of their treatment. Adjustments to oral appliances may be made as needed to optimize results.
Education and Counseling: Education and counselling is key to any success. We provide education and counseling to patients regarding sleep disorders, the use and maintenance of oral appliances, and lifestyle changes that can improve sleep quality.
Treatment for Snoring: Many patient are seeking solutions for snoring, which can disrupt sleep and affect the quality of life for both the snorer and their partner. We are able to work together with you to get a better night’s sleep – and a quieter one for your partner.
Insurance and Payment Options: We work together with your health insurance fund to claim all benefits available for your sleep treatment as well as also offer flexible, interest free payment options.
