  2. I am tired of snoring and it is very embarrassing to me. How much does it cost? How much time is needed in order to receive a device?

  3. I understand your frustration and have helped many patients have quiet nights of sleep!
    There are quite a few options for snoring treatment. Devices can be made in one visit which tend to be short term type of devices. Most longer lasting devices take between 2 and 4 weeks to have made, sometimes quicker. Cost vary quite a bit between the short term and longer term devices but may be covered under your medical insurance depending if the snoring is linked with a medical diorder called obstructive sleep apnea.
    Best place to start is to to be screened for these devices and further discuss your snoring symptoms.
