Hello! Hope you are doing fine. Patients with mild OSA an oral appliance is a good alternative to a CPAP machine, along with other things, including weight loss, exercise, avoidance of alcohol and sedative medications and also changing sleep position if you have positional OSA. Oral appliances such as mandibular advancement/repositioning splints or devices or tongue retaining devices may help.

If you have any allergies, treatment for rhinitis and congestion may provide relief. Avoid smoke, dust, mold, pet dander and pollen. Rinse nasal passages with saline, maintain a normal weight and monitor blood pressure.
