Treatment

Your sleep medicine team will make treatment recommendations based on your medical history, symptoms, sleep complaints and sleep study results.

Treatment options include:

  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy—Uses air pressure to support and maintain open airways and regular breathing during sleep. The most common form of treatment for sleep apnea is using a CPAP machine, which involves breathing through a mask connected to a small, air-pumping machine. During a second sleep study, we adjust the CPAP pressure to a comfortable setting that corrects the sleep apnea and contributes to a restful sleep at home.
  • Dental devices—Keep your jaw and tongue properly positioned for easy breathing and refreshing sleep.
