What are the treatment options for sleep apnea?

The treatment options for sleep apnea vary depending on the severity of the problem. Someone with mild or moderate sleep apnea may benefit from wearing a dental appliance. The appliance looks similar to an athletic mouthguard or retainer, and repositions the jaw and tongue forward to improve airflow. It is often covered by insurance and Medicare but may require a little out-of-pocket expense.

Treatment for severe sleep apnea requires more aggressive management, which may include the use of a CPAP machine.
