More Convenient Size

CPAP Machine

The CPAP machine is a large appliance, often requiring a cleared bedside table to place it on while you sleep. This can make traveling with the machine difficult.

Oral Appliance Therapy

Three easy steps

How It Works


Step 1. Measure

  • Work with us to schedule a sleep test or bring your current test results for a consultation.
  • We will make sure your test is evaluated by a board certified sleep physician and, if necessary, obtain your Letter of medical necessity (LOMN) and prescription.
  • We measure the mobility of your lower jaw and digitally scan your teeth for the fabrication of an oral appliance therapy device.

Step 2. Make

Our lab will fabricate your Oral Appliance Therapy device in approximately 3-5 weeks. While deductibles and co-payments may vary, nearly all medical insurance plans can be used to help cover the cost of your oral device. Not using insurance? No problem. Enjoy low monthly payments at 0% over 6 months.

Sleep Better

Step 3. Sleep Better

Simply put in your OAT before going to sleep. Wearing your OAT will bring your lower jaw slightly forward to open up your airway. The oral device works by preventing tissue at the back of the throat and the base of the tongue from collapsing back into the airway.

A Note From Our Founder

Hi, I’m Dr. Kelly Standish

If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, you may already be aware of the difficulties surrounding CPAP treatment.

While CPAP is an effective treatment for sleep apnea, patients often abandon their treatment altogether after nightly frustration with uncomfortable face masks and noisy machines.

This is why we introduce Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) – a more comfortable, convenient alternative for treating sleep apnea.

Our Oral Appliance Therapy is a is small, lightweight device (similar to a retainer) that you wear while you sleep. The device works by positioning your lower jaw slightly forward, opening up the airway to your lungs.

The OAT has no moving parts & doesn’t make any noise while you sleep.

If you are not experiencing restful sleep, have been told you snore, or are unhappy with your CPAP, this treatment might be right for you.

Please call our office today to learn about your treatment options for a better night’s sleep.
