The ENT will be able to do certain operations which will be useful for the snoring, but which are not especially successful for the apnoea. Our experience has been that 50% of patients who undergo this type of surgery will return within 6 months because the problem has returned.
There are certain dental devices available which pull the jaw forward while you sleep. The cheap ones, unfortunately, are not very successful. the better ones will be useful for the milder cases of apnoea, but also will cost about half the price of a CPAP machine.
