Sleep Review's webinar "Insourcing Versus Outsourcing Home Sleep Testing" is now available for on-demand viewing.
Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain fails to send the appropriate signals to the breathing muscles to initiate respirations.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when air cannot flow into or out of the person’s nose or mouth although efforts to breathe continue. At Austin Bluffs Dental, we can treat mild to moderate sleep apnea, and in some cases severe sleep apnea, depending on the case. All billing for these services will be through your medical insurance, and a pre-authorization of benefits will be done, with your permission, to see if an oral sleep appliance is a covered benefit under your particular medical plan.
Patients in the study were fitted with the TAP appliance and given a tiny key that fits in the front of the device.


Kearney is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM.org) and provides Sleep Apnea Therapy in his Colorado Springs office. In obstructive sleep apnea, the throat collapses during sleep causing the individual to snort and gasp for breath.
This will happen before the construction of any such appliance is begun, after we have received the results of your home sleep test. Its sleek design features no anterior coverage and less bulk, the manufucturer says, promoting extremely high patient compliance rates while effectively treating snoring and OSA. After an initial evaluation in our office, a home sleep test is ordered through Sleep Services Medical Group or through your primary care doctor. If your medical insurance provides coverage for an oral sleep appliance, you will direct us to proceed with its construction.


After your home sleep test, your results are interpreted by a licensed medical doctor specializing in sleep disorders. Depending on your diagnoses, a custom made oral appliance can be constructed to help open your airway when you sleep. If your diagnosis is that you have severe obstructive sleep apnea, we will direct you to consult with your primary care doctor to initiate CPAP or BIPAP therapy to help you sleep. Our goal is to help you improve the quality of your life by helping you while you sleep and while you are awake.
