Sleep Apnea Treatment

In most cases sleep apnea treatment can be simple with a variety of non-invasive options. In few cases, non-invasive treatments do not work and surgery may be required.

Natural Sleep Apnea Remedies

In mild cases of sleep apnea some patients can improve their condition by changing or adjusting their lifestyle. Please note, these changes should be used to supplement another form of sleep apnea treatment.

  • sleeping on your side rather than your back
  • staying away from alcohol before going to sleep
  • staying off of sleep aids (sleep medications)
  • quitting smoking
  • exercising your throat muscles
  • weight loss

Sleep Apnea CPAP Machines

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machines consist of a nasal mask that stays on while you sleep. The CPAP machine delivers oxygen through the airway and keeps the airway open by providing continuous air pressure.

Sleep Apnea Mouthpieces

Dental appliances for sleep apnea resemble a mouthpiece and effectively adjust jaw slightly forward which enlarges the airway. Learn more about dental appliances for sleep apnea.

Sleep Apnea Surgery

Patients with sleep apnea usually have a smaller airway. Whether it's caused by tissue getting in the way or simply a smaller sized airway, surgery is an option to enlarge the airway by removing soft tissue.
