What to expect
At your first visit you will be educated on OAT treatment. Dr. Ferrara will also preform an extensive craniofacial examination that includes a 3D x-ray (CBCT), TMJ analysis, muscle palpitation, airway and oral exam. If your evaluation determines you to be a candidate for OAT, bite registrations and impressions will be taken for fabrication of your customized appliance. Appointments for delivery of the appliance and several follow-up visits will be needed to reach maximum effectiveness. You will then be referred back to your MD/ sleep specialist for follow-up and re-evaluation.
