In brief: Severity

Depends on whether central or obstructive how severe it is CPAP machine or oral appliance or combination, surgery there are a lot of options.

In brief: Sleep apnea

This depends upon the severity of the apnea.
For mild to moderate apnea, a dental device has been approved as a method of treatment. Patients find that these devices are more comfortable than the CPAP devices which are a mask that must be worn to force oxygen into the lungs. Compliance of CPAP is less that 50% because of the discomfort involved.

Actually those patients followed in a sleep clinic by a subspecialist have much higher adherence rates to cpap. I'm over 70%.
