(KUTV) -- Dr. Shad Morris, DMD from Premier Sleep Solutions visited Fresh Living to discuss sleep apnea and a possible solution.
Dr. Morris is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and a certified diplomat of the American Academy of Sleep and Breathing. Dr. Morris is the CEO of Premier Sleep Solutions LLC. He has been successfully treating patients with sleep apnea for over 10 years.
Premier Sleep Solutions in Salt Lake and St. George is a dental practice focused exclusively on providing oral appliance therapy for individuals suffering from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep.
Oral appliances can often be used as an alternative to CPAP (an acronym for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machines.
Premier Sleep Solutions is approved to bill Medicare and most insurance companies for the oral appliance treatment, and the oral appliance most often used by Premier Sleep Solutions is Medicare approved. Most medical insurance providers cover the treatment of sleep-related disorders, so patients' out-of-pocket costs are minimal or even non existent.
Some 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders every night, and most of those go through life undiagnosed. Sleep apnea has been linked to heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and even depression. For individuals suffering from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, oral appliances have proven to be as effective as CPAP machines.
