First, you’ll need to see a sleep specialist for a diagnosis. You will undergo a sleep study, where you’ll stay the night at a special lab. Your sleep specialist will monitor sensors attached to your body, and use this information to diagnose you.
Depending on your condition, your treatment recommendations may differ. Patients with minor apnea may just need a special retainer from a dentist, while those with more serious apnea may need oral surgery to remove some oral tissue. Your sleep specialist will make the appropriate recommendation.

Your sleep specialist and your dentist may make some lifestyle recommendations to help with sleep apnea. These may include quitting smoking, exercising, losing weight, avoiding drugs and alcohol (especially before bed), and sleeping on your side, rather than on your back or your stomach.
Oral Appliance Therapy, or OAT for short, uses a special mouthguard. This mouthguard changes the position of your jaw when you sleep, which prevents oral tissue from sagging into your airway. This means that your breathing won’t be interrupted at night. OAT is ideal for patients with minor-to-moderate apnea.
