I recently had a sleep study and was diagnoticed with mild obstructive sleep apnea with a rate of events at 8 per hour increasing to 11 per hour in supine sleep and a saturation low at 82%. Recommendations CPAP or other treatment (may include oral dental applicances by a dentist or ENT evaluation for surgical treatment options). I am having trouble finding a dentist who is able to file with Medicare for the dental appliance. Have you had success with the dental appliance? Would you recommend a ENT evaluation? I hate to jump right to the CPAP - it seems quite cumbersome.
