Tag Archives: Which sleep apnea treatment is best

Is a snoring device enough for sleep apnea?

I think I may have sleep apnea.  My husband says I’m snoring a lot and I always wake up tired. If I get a dental snoring device, will that be enough or do I have to sleep with a machine?

Annika,

It does sound like you could be suffering from sleep apnea. That can be a serious condition that needs treatment. Which treatment you need honestly depends on the severity of your sleep apnea.

Your dentist can perform tests to determine whether you just need an oral appliance or a CPAP machine.  The key is to get with a dentist.  Sometimes your insurance will cover a sleep study.
