We are able to offer help to people who have given up on their CPAP treatment, or who would like to try a simple, eas- to-wear oral appliance for their sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is almost always covered by medical insurance and Lane & Associates Family Dentistry is one of the few offices in North Carolina that is In-Network with over 18 dental insurance providers.
For people suffering with TMJ problems, Lane & Associates Family Dentistry may be able to help as well. Oftentimes these treatments are also covered by medical insurance.
