Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and snoring can have profoundly negative consequences in all areas of your life. Not only do you miss out on restful sleep, but you can suffer from other physiological, psychological, and emotional side effects of this sleeping disorder. Our practice is 100% committed to treating OSA through the use of Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT).
Dr. Brockett uses the latest technology available for upper airway analysis. From a very low dose cone bean (3-D) X-ray, Dr. Brockett will be able to measure the volume of airway breathing space, allowing him to predict what you can expect from his therapies! Using an evidence-based approach to improve success for his patients is precisely what sets our practice apart from others.

Weight loss should be recommended for all overweight OSA patients, and should be combined with a primary treatment for OSA (CPAP or oral appliance) due to the low success rate of dietary programs and the low cure rate by dietary approach alone.

In solving obstructive sleep apnea and snoring issues, we focus exclusively on oral appliance therapy. Oral Appliances gently pull your lower jaw forward, which opens up your airway. For many, this is enough to prevent snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, leading to better rest and better quality of life. In addition, Dr. Morgan developed the Pharyngeal Training Appliance (PTA), which offers patients a convenient way to perform targeted exercise and tone the muscles that maintain airway function
Pharyngeal exercise has been shown by a limited number of investigations to show an improvement in sleep apnea and snoring. We can discuss how to implement these exercises into your treatment plan.
Most insurance companies pay for a custom fitted oral appliance. This treatment is billed under your medical insurance as opposed to your dental insurance. You may check your policy benefits for custom-fitted oral appliance therapy. Dr. Brockett will be committed to you and your ongoing care. The important message here is your health and addressing the serious condition, Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
