Custom device helps apnea patients sleep better

Providence Health Plan has chosen SomnoMed to provide an oral device for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea. The device is customizable and fits over the upper and lower teeth during sleep, moving the lower jaw slightly forward to keep the airway open for normal breathing. Ninety-one percent of patients using the oral device report improved sleep.

Providence Health Plan members who meet the criteria can be referred to a SomnoMed-contracted network dentist. If you have questions, call 503-574-6400 or 800-638-0449.
