Getting the Correct Diagnosis
Sleep apnea can lead to life-threatening health conditions, so seeking a diagnosis and treatment can save your life. Not only that, it can help you feel revitalized. If you’ve noticed some of the symptoms of sleep apnea, it may be time to undergo a sleep study.
Though Dr. Huff often notices some of the signs of sleep apnea and warn you if you might have it, a sleep study can accurately diagnose your sleep disorder. Once you have the results of your sleep study, Dr. Huff can provide comfortable treatment options for your sleep apnea.
How Dr. Huff Can Help You
When you come in for your sleep apnea consultation, Dr. Huff will first review the results of your sleep study and ask you questions about your lifestyle. He tries to tailor your treatment plan to your individual situation so it’ll be convenient for you.
Dr. Huff will explain your various treatment options and can tell you the advantages of an oral appliance. Together, you’ll decide on a course of action for your sleep apnea.
Questions to Consider Asking
Your consultation is the perfect time to ask Dr. Huff any questions you have. It’s good to know a dentist before you commit to their treatment plan, so we’ve compiled a list of questions that may be beneficial for you.
You might consider asking:
- Why do people prefer oral appliances over CPAP?
- What are the costs of my treatment going to be?
- Will an oral appliance help with my snoring?
- Are oral appliances covered by insurance?
Any questions you have about your treatment are welcome and encouraged. Feeling comfortable with your treatment decision is a priority.
