Dental Alternatives
While you are sleeping, dental mouthpieces assist with keeping the airways open by moving your lower jaw forward. Not only is this alternative an effective and comfortable solution in treating sleep apnea, but custom oral appliances are covered by most medical insurance companies and Medicare.


Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes a person’s airway to be blocked or narrowed, causing one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep. Common among adults, this condition can be very serious and result in many physical problems. Aside from poor sleep quality and heavy snoring, sleep apnea can cause short-term memory loss, abnormal exhaustion and drowsiness during waking hours, as well as cognitive learning problems. This dangerous condition can increase the risk of heart disease, heart attacks and strokes in otherwise healthy people.

To significantly reduce your risk for these ailments, it is best to seek immediate and long-term treatment. Treatment options for sleep apnea may either be surgical or non-surgical. Less intrusive non-surgical options include the CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) machine in which air is pushed through a nasal mask or simple dental alternatives.

If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea or are suffering from many of the symptoms of this threatening and bothersome disorder, you are likely looking for a simple and practical treatment option to help you rest easily. Dr. Anthony Grasso invites you to take a look around our site to learn about two of the least invasive treatment options: the CPAP machine and customized dental appliances.
