Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea

There are several treatment options available. An initial treatment may consist of using a nasal CPAP machine that delivers pressurized oxygen through a nasal mask to limit obstruction at night. Some patients may qualify for an oral appliance rather than a CPAP machine.

An apnea device attaches to your teeth like a night guard. It opens the airway by moving the lower jaw forward. This can be an effective way to manage apnea. It is also used for snoring and can greatly reduce or eliminate it.
