In brief: Consider MAD
Mandibular advancement devices, or mads, are fit by a dentist and worn in the mouth at night.
They are used to reduce or eliminate snoring, one sign of obstructive sleep apnea. They hold the lower jaw forward, opening the airway. They are generally better tolerated than cpap, so compliance may be better. Research on combining CPAP and mad is promising.

In brief: Sleep apnea
In order to cure sleep apnea you have to understand why you have it in the first place.
For some people obesity is contributing so weight loss can help. Nasal congestion, large tonsils, and other airway abnormalities can also contribute so those issues can be addressed. Sleep apnea is not always curable. The good news is that CPAP is an effective treatment in 99% of cases.
