Welcome to the Park Avenue Sleep Apnea and Snoring Institute

  • Did You Know. . .

    Guidelines created by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine state that an oral appliance is the FIRST treatment option for patients with primary snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. It's the second treatment option for patients with severe sleep apnea who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy or are not good candidates for surgery. This type of Oral Appliance Device can only be made by a dentist.

What are the Signs & Effects of Untreated Sleep Apnea?

  • Waking up with a very sore or dry throat

  • Loud snoring

  • Occasionally waking up with a choking or gasping sensation.

  • Sleepiness or lack of energy during the day

  • Sleepiness while driving

  • Morning headaches

  • Restless sleep

  • Forgetfullness, mood changes, and a decreased interest in sex

  • A recent Harvard study found that sleep breathing problems are associated with an earlier onset of the decline in thinking skills. Those with sleep apnea were diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (a decline in thinking skills) an average of 10 years earlier than people who didn't have those problems.

  • The Park Avenue Sleep Apnea and Snoring Institute follows the treatment plan for mild to moderate sleep apnea that has been recommended by the American Society of Sleep Medicine.

Insurance Coverage
Important Facts

Most parts of the process, including your initial appointment, sleep study, and the creation of a custom device, will be largely covered by most major medical insurance plans.


Oral therapy, like the services offered by Dr. Fox, are the first option for treating mild and moderate cases of sleep apnea.


In more severe cases, where a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) is not effective, a dental device is an alternative option.

Mandibular Repositioning Appliances
How It Works

The device pushes the tongue and jaw forward. This makes the airway larger and improves airflow. The MRD (Mandibular Repositioning Device) also reduces the chance that tissue will collapse and narrow the airway when you breathe in. You wear the device every night to prevent breathing problems. Clinical studies show that custom-made MRDs are effective in treating mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and snoring.
