What's next?: So you must have symptoms or someone suspects sleep apnea to be inquiring about a sleep study. You need to consider what your choices are if you have sleep apnea. There are only two simple answers: a CPAP or a dental device. A CPAP is an expensive device, a dental device would be a lot less costly. The cost of not having the study and subsequent devices if you have apnea could be your life.
