If you are over the age of 65 or have a permanently disability, your Medicare dental coverage through Medicare Part B may cover the cost of many serious dental conditions, especially those that affect your quality of life. Examples of dental procedures commonly covered include dental implant surgery as well as treatments for TMJ disorder, bone atrophy, bone growth abnormalities, and sleeping disorders such as sleep apnea. Some PPO health insurances may also cover some of these treatments, so contact us to check your eligibility!

Determining Medicare dental coverage eligibility for dental implant surgery requires an evaluation, however current denture patients and patients who are missing multiple consecutive teeth who are over the age of 65 have a high chance of qualifying. If the procedure is deemed medically necessary to enhance quality of life, some PPO health insurances may also cover your dental implants.
The most common type of sleep apnea treatment provided by dentists is oral appliance therapy. This involves the use of a customized oral device that is worn by the patient during sleep to keep the airway open. For patients who have difficulty with the oral or commonly used CPAP devices, oral surgery may also be an option.
Some common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat, excessive sleepiness or lack of energy through the day, morning headaches, forgetfulness and difficulty concentrating, mood swings, abruptly awakening with gasping or choking sensation, high blood pressure, night sweats, and decreased libido.
Medicare dental coverage (Part B) and most health insurances typically cover the treatment of sleeping disorders.
