IF I AM CLAUSTROPHOBIC, CAN I STILL WEAR A SLEEP APNEA APPLIANCE?
Yes, there are many appliances that are intended specifically for patients who have claustrophobia. They allow for adequate tongue movement to ensure that the condition is not a problem while the appliance is in place.

  • A copy of your formal sleep study
