Sleep Apnoea and Snoring Treatments
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the most common and effective treatment for Sleep Apnoea.
CPAP treats Sleep Apnoea by providing a gentle flow of positive pressure air through a mask to ‘splint’ the airways open during sleep.
When CPAP is applied, air is pumped in through a mask into your upper airway. The air prevents the muscles in the upper airway from collapsing during sleep, as is the case in Sleep Apnoea and snoring.
Alternative options include:
- Fitting of a dental device
- Referral to an ENT specialist
- A weight loss program
