Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine at California Dental Sleep Solutions is a virtual appointment Dr. Martinez offers to help you avoid in-office dental visits. She evaluates you for sleep apnea from the comfort of your home, car, or office. You can chat with Dr. Martinez via your computer, tablet, or phone. California Dental Sleep Solutions is HIPPA-compliant to protect patient privacy.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Some of the numerous benefits associated with telemedicine at California Dental Sleep Solutions include:

  • Convenience
  • No commute time
  • Cost savings
  • No sick patient exposure
  • Personalized treatments

You receive the same premium care with Dr. Martinez during telemedicine appointments as you do during in-office visits.

What should I expect during telemedicine appointments?

During your scheduled appointment time, Dr. Martinez will have a live chat with you. She reviews your medical history and asks about your sleeping patterns and symptoms you may have, such as:

  • Loud snoring
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Morning sore throats or headaches
  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Paused breathing during sleep
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mood changes
  • Jaw pain
  • Teeth grinding or clenching
  • Other temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder symptoms

Depending on the results of your evaluation, Dr. Martinez might recommend you complete X-rays or other imaging procedures or undergo a sleep study to identify your condition and discuss possible treatment options.

What are my telemedicine treatment options?

After Dr. Martinez collects information during a telemedicine evaluation, she might recommend evaluation by a sleep physician, who will diagnose and recommend treatment to help you breathe easier and sleep better at night or reduce teeth grinding. She may offer oral appliance therapy with custom-fit mouthguards to reposition your jaw or tongue, improve airflow, and eliminate teeth grinding.

Dr. Martinez might also recommend sleep position changes, weight loss, regular exercise, or using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine to improve airflow during sleep. Dr. Martinez personalizes each treatment to optimize your outcome.

Don’t let your inability to attend in-office visits prevent you from getting evaluated for sleep apnea and TMJ symptoms. Schedule a telemedicine appointment with California Dental Sleep Solutions over the phone or online for better sleep today.
