FAQ

Many sleep disorders and facial pain originates in the oral structures. Therefore, the treatments to alleviate these disorders involve the oral structures. Dentists are the only practitioners with the knowledge and training to treat these structures. 

Before treatment, we will run a benefit check so the patient will know up front what insurance will cover and what will be out of pocket before any treatment.

HollowBrook sleep does not provide sleep studies. Your primary care physician will need to put in a referral for a sleep study. If a referral from a primary care physician is not an option, we can assist with a referral to a sleep center for a sleep study.

Not necessarily. We will do a consultation first and a referral for a sleep study may be needed before treatment. 

HollowBrook Sleep primarily treats Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), snoring, headaches, insomnia and TMD . We do not diagnose patients with sleep apnea, insomnia, or other sleep disorders.

Common symptoms that you may grind your teeth at night include headaches, yellow teeth, chipped teeth, and jaw pain.

  • Higher incidence of high blood pressure, stroke, heart attacks, diabetes, obesity, acid reflux, and other disorders
  • 3-5 times higher risk of developing cancer with moderate to severe apnea
  • Increased risk of dementia (due to low oxygen)
