CPAP is largely acknowledge as the treatment for sleep apnea. However, it’s not for everyone. You have many, many more options available to get a good night’s sleep, non-surgical treatments.


Chronic morning headaches are one of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea. If you suffer from regular morning headaches, we can help eliminate them by treating your sleep apnea.


Snoring is usually a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea, but even “simple snoring” can be unhealthy for you too. Thankfully there is a non-surgical treatment for both problems.

Dr. Melissa Sheets

We now participate in network with most medical insurance plans, and we are a Medicare DME provider for sleep apnea patients.

Do you wake up feeling unrested or with a headache? Do you suffer from daytime sleepiness, can’t focus, and just want to take a nap every day? Are you having trouble with weight gain even though you are dieting and exercising more than ever? Have you become irritable, depressed, unmotivated, or uninterested in things that used to inspire you? If so, then you might be suffering from sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a potentially deadly condition, and these are just a few of its more noticeable symptoms, which also include snoring. About 90% of sleep apnea sufferers don’t know they have it, though every day it increases their risk of heart attack, stroke, surgical complications, and more serious health conditions.

Fortunately, there are treatment options, and Dr. Melissa Sheets can help you find comfortable, safe, and effective sleep apnea treatment that will likely be covered by your insurance.

We use scientific diagnostics to identify if you are a candidate for an oral appliance before we begin treatment

We have over a 90% success rate in treating good candidates. With our scientific process, we identify if you are a good candidate for treatment so you know you’re not throwing money away on a treatment that’s not right for you. We’re confident that once we’ve determined you are in that group, you will experience fewer morning headaches, get better rest at night, and see a reduction in your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other sleep apnea dangers.

Multiple Options for Safe, Effective, Comfortable, and Easy Treatment

Unlike the past, surgery is a treatment of last resort for sleep apnea. CPAP used to be the most recommended treatment option, but people found it difficult and uncomfortable. That meant they used it less than they should, which made it ineffective.

Now we know that oral appliance therapy—similar to a specially designed mouthguard you wear during sleep—is the best treatment option for many people with sleep apnea.

And if your sleep apnea is mild, the treatment may be even easier—some simple lifestyle changes can make a big difference in your sleep apnea.

Insurance Covers Sleep Apnea Treatment

In the past, most insurance companies denied coverage for oral appliance therapy because it was considered investigational. Now science has established that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option, so in January 2011, Medicare authorized coverage for certain oral appliances if they were prescribed by an appropriate doctor or dentist, and now most insurers will cover the cost of your sleep apnea treatment.

Unfortunately, snoring treatment is still considered nonessential, and is not covered, although it is every effective.
