Oral Appliance Therapy

We use oral appliances to treat sleep apnea at Klooster Family Dentistry.

Our dental sleep medicine focuses on using oral appliance therapy as a sleep apnea treatment. This treatment involves using a custom-made device that repositions the lower jaw forward during sleep, maintaining an open airway to prevent apneas and allow for healthy breathing. This appliance is used to address sleep apnea symptoms right at the cause. Our team custom-builds these devices based on your unique anatomy. Oral device therapy is FDA-approved to treat obstructive sleep apnea, which is the most common form of sleep apnea and the diagnosis that we usually treat.

Tailored to each patient, our oral appliances are designed for comfort and effectiveness throughout the night. We use personalized scans from 3D technology that uses the latest innovations to help create a comfortable device you will want to wear. Klooster Family Dentistry uses the Respire Oral Appliance series. These leading devices offer a top-of-the-line treatment using an industry-leading device.

CPAP Alternatives

While CPAP machines are a common solution for sleep apnea, many patients seek alternatives.

Oral appliance therapy offers a treatment option for patients whose CPAP has let them down. Patients struggle with their CPAP because it's uncomfortable, too loud, unbearable, or unrealistic to travel with. Our team offers years of experience treating sleep apnea with this alternative approach.

Dental Sleep Medicine

Dental Sleep Medicine (DSM) is an emerging field of medicine that pairs dentistry with sleep apnea treatments. Our provider, Dr. Klooster, is certified and a Diplomate on the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.

DSM offers solutions for sleep-related breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. Specially trained dentists like Dr. Klooster build custom-fitted oral devices to treat sleep apnea symptoms without needing CPAP. We partner with physicians who diagnose sleep apnea, while our process uses a dentist trained in sleep medicine to provide the treatment.

Paying for Sleep Apnea Treatments

Sleep apnea treatments are worth the investment. Effectively treating sleep apnea can completely change your quality of life and reduce the risk of serious outcomes. Oral appliances are often covered by insurance. We are in-network with medical providers and file insurance for all major medical insurance providers on your behalf. We also offer treatments for an out-of-pocket cost set at a transparent price.

What oral appliances does Klooster Family Dentistry use?

Klooster Family Dentistry uses Respire Oral Appliances. Respire offers a whole line of oral appliances that allow our provider to find the right device for you. Depending on your diagnosis, anatomical needs, and personal preferences, our dentist will custom-build you an oral device using an option from Respire. The Respire Oral Appliance is an easy-to-use mouthpiece you can take in and out like a sports gum shield. It works by gently positioning your lower jaw slightly forward while you sleep.

Where does Klooster Family Dentistry treat sleep apnea?

We do consultations at our location in Holly Springs. However, our clinic is designed to treat patients who live in and around Holly Springs, Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Sanford, and Fuquay-Varina. If you live in any of these areas, we encourage you to visit our clinic to learn more about sleep apnea treatments. Schedule a consultation to get started.

What Is an Oral Sleep Appliance?

An oral sleep appliance is a custom-made device that fits like a retainer in the mouth. It works by gently repositioning your lower jaw forward to open up your airway and prevent it from collapsing during sleep. This helps ensure that you get sufficient oxygen during the night and can rest peacefully without interruption.

Oral appliances are easy to wear and comfortable to use. They're small enough to fit inside your pocket or purse when not in use, so they're perfect for travelers who need their device on-the-go! Additionally, they don't make any noise while you sleep, so no one else in your bed will be disturbed by them either.

This helps prevent your airway from becoming blocked during the night and keeps you breathing normally so that you can get a good night's rest.

Why Patients Choose Respire Oral Appliance vs. CPAP

  • Convenience: Oral appliances often win over CPAP machines in terms of portability and ease of cleaning, making them a convenient choice.
  • Comfort: Ditch the bothersome masks and tubes of a CPAP machine by opting for a more user-friendly oral appliance for a better night's sleep.
  • Compliance: The most effective treatment is the one you'll stick to. Reflect on which option aligns with your lifestyle and ensures consistent usage to achieve the desired results.

"I was worried about the whole insurance process, but Klooster’s office handled everything. It was so simple, all I had to do was come in for the first consultation and then when they tested the fit. An unintended result of the oral appliance is that it kept me from grinding and clenching my teeth - I used to wake up with headaches - and since using this I’ve had no headaches in the morning. My jaws are no longer sore – I wasn’t even looking for that but I’ll take it!”
