CPAP (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) is the gold standard for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
There have been many advances in the use of CPAP from quieter CPAP machines, to more comfortable masks.
There are always improvements being made with CPAP and the masks.
Our office encourages everyone to try CPAP before considering use of an oral appliance.
If you have tried CPAP and have not been able to make it work for you, in spite of trying many different masks, then an oral appliance is usually your next option.
