Viable Alternative to CPAP Intolerant Patients
It is recognized that a very large percentage of CPAP users are non compliant, many more just simply cannot tolerate CPAP. Others who travel hate lugging the CPAP machine through the airport and security.
The answer for many of these patients is oral appliance therapy. Apnea Sciences offers both semi-custom and fully custom oral appliances. The semi-custom ApneaRx is a great option for budget-concerned patients. Easily fitted in just five minutes, the patient leaves the office with it! They always have the option to upgrade to a fully custom oral appliance at any time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does ApneaRx require a prescription?
In the United States, a prescription is required to retrieve an ApneaRx. FDA classifies ApneaRx as a Class II medical device which requires a prescription from a licensed medical practitioner. Sleep MDs, ENTs, nurse practitioners and dentists are qualified to prescribe ApneaRx.
Is ApneaRx covered by insurance?
Since all insurance plan benefits vary and change over time, the patient's insurance provider should be contacted to confirm its coverage policies. Most insurance carriers only reimburse for the ApneaRx Pro. The cost of ApneaRx is often less than their insurance deductible.
How should I clean my ApneaRx?
We recommend using a mild dish soap or denture cleaner to clean the oral appliance. Stay away from abrasive cleaners such as mouthwash, dishwashing soap, ammonia, bleach, and other household cleaning products. Give your ApneaRx a chance to air-dry after wearing it or cleaning it.
How long does it take to adjust to ApneaRx?
Typically, the adjustment period takes about 3-5 nights of consistent use. It is perfectly normal for your jaw, teeth and gums to feel moderately sore and fatigued at first. This discomfort is much like getting braces, or a retainer for the first time. However, it is not normal to experience severe, sharp or ongoing pain. If this occurs please discontinue use and consult your medical professional.
How long does ApneaRx last?
If properly maintained, the oral appliance can last several years if the patient does not suffer from bruxism.
