If they are diagnosed with sleep apnea, the goal standard treatment is the CPAP machine, which is like a mask that the patient would wear while they sleep, and it provides positive oxygen pressure
for them while they're sleeping so they don't stop breathing. We can help treat sleep apnea here at the office, it is an oral appliance that helps reposition the jaw and it helps keep the airway open while people are sleeping. This option is for people who cannot tolerate the mask.
