There are several sleep apnea treatment options. Lifestyle adjustments, weight loss, exercise,
and new sleeping positions can reduce the effects of sleep apnea. In extreme cases, sleep
apnea is treated with surgery. The most common treatment for all types of sleep apnea is the
CPAP machine. With a CPAP, the patient wears a breathing mask connected to a respirator
device to bed. The machine facilitates consistent breathing by pumping air into the airways.
The CPAP leaves many wondering whether there's an easy way to treat sleep apnea. The
answer is yes. A small oral appliance that's worn while sleeping can, can decrease the
symptoms and treat OSA. This night guard device is custom-made to fit the patient perfectly.
It's designed to hold the jaw in the proper position that naturally opens your airway for better
breathing and helps prevent soft tissues from collapsing and hindering breath. Most sleep
apnea devices are covered 100% by your PPO medical insurance and our office will
preauthorize each case prior to treatment so you are informed of any out of pocket expense.
