Obstructive Sleep Apnea can be treated on different levels. If you have been diagnosed by a medical doctor with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), you should follow his/her recommendation for professional treatment, which usually will consist of wearing a CPAP or an oral appliance. The oral appliance can be delivered by a dentist trained in sleep dentistry.

In addition to following the medical treatment recommendations, there are 5 things that you can do at home to treat OSA. I will cover each of the 5 things in subsequent blog posts. The five things are:

1) Lose Weight
2) Stop smoking
3) Abstain from drinking Alcohol or taking sedatives before bedtime
4) Sleep on your side
5) Treat nasal congestion before sleeping
