Yes, it's true, however, every individual is different, so it also depends on how severe the condition is. So, my advice is visit your dentist and have a proper consultation in order to get a more accurate treatment plan.

Do check with your dentist, as regulations may differ from region to region. Dentists can treat sleep apnea if the individual's case is mild to moderate. After a sleep study is completed, visit your dentist to allow him to evaluate your situation. Oral appliances and lasers (nightlase) are a couple of different modalities which can help.
