um into the mouth and that is a machine that works quite well to help treat the sleep apnea Another way to treat the sleep apnea if you're not very comfortable with the sleep ap machine would be to have a guard so this is called a sleep apnea guard or a mandibular advancement device, what this guard does is something you wear in your mouth that draws your lower jaw forward, so by drawing your lower jaw forward what happens is that it opens up your airway and allows more air to go through and
