Effective sleep apnea treatment can reduce and may even eliminate the effects of the disease. Most people who are successfully treated experience increased energy and a healthier mental attitude — not to mention the satisfaction of consistently getting a good night’s rest!
There are a number of different approaches to the treatment of sleep apnea. Your options will depend on how severe your disease is, how it’s affecting you and your lifestyle.
It’s really important to find a treatment that you can actually adapt to and use easily. Many people with sleep apnea abandon treatment because of difficulties with it. If one treatment doesn’t work for you, don’t give up; talk to your doctor or dentist about options.
Treatment can be roughly divided into things you can do yourself, and solutions to help overcome the problem.
