Below are the most frequently asked questions about anti-snoring devices:
How does the Device work?
The device helps prevent snoring and sleep apnea by moving your jaw or tongue out of the way so that your airway widens.
What is the success rate for the anti-snoring device?
In more than 80% of cases, the device that we use has proven effective.
Will my insurance pay for an anti-snoring device?
Your health insurance may pay for an anti-snoring device, but most likely only if you’ve completed a sleep study.
Can any dentist make this device?
No. Only a few dentists in the Denver metro area fabricate oral appliances for snoring and sleep apnea. Dr. Hagen has more than 20 years experience in oral appliance therapy, and suffers from sleep apnea, himself.
Can the device be used on children?
Yes, the device can be safely and effectively used to treat this condition. Many children suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Please note: The anti-snoring devices that we custom-fabricate, are sometimes referred to as oral appliances, mouth guards, mouth pieces, mouth devices, splints and fixtures.
