Oral appliances are now universally regarded as the best available treatment for snoring and a frontline treatment sleep apnoea.

CPAP is also regarded as an alternative treatment for sleep apnoea, which works by delivering air under pressure to keep the airways open.
There are other treatments offered on the internet and in stores which include unfitted ‘Boil and Bite’ devices, nasal strips, sprays, pillows, rings and the buteyko breathing technique. These methods are unproven, are generally regarded as ineffective, and not recommended by sleep physicians.
