Hear Jodi's Sleep Apnea Story

"I was tired quite often. I snored ALL the time. I could also drop off sleeping on a dime. I could be in mid conversation and I would fall asleep. At one point in time I fell asleep at a dinner table without even having a drink."
Anti-snoring cushion - This positional device is a noninvasive treatment for snoring. The cushion is worn like a backpack in the middle of the back to prevent you from rolling onto your back during sleep. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment - This is typically the first option for those seeking treatment for sleep apnea. The device is designed with a small air blower that is connected by a flexible hose to a cushioned plastic mask covering the nose. This device helps to keep the air passage open while you sleep.

Oral appliance therapy – A sleep apnea dental appliance is a small acrylic device that fits right over your upper and lower teeth or tongue, much like a mouth guard or orthodontic retainer. This type of sleep apnea dental appliance can be a very effective option to treat sleep apnea for patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

Surgery - Surgical options for sleep apnea and snoring include laser assisted uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP) where a portion of the soft palate and most of the uvula are removed to improve air flow. A more extensive procedure called uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) may be necessary for people with snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea. Somnoplasty, or radio frequency surgery, is a minor surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia and can also reduce snoring.
