1. An oral sleep apnea treatment device selectively engagable with a patient's lips and teeth, said oral sleep apnea treatment device comprising:
a front hollow housing defining a first through passage, said front hollow housing having an exterior surface configured to engage the patient's lips;
a mouthpiece having an exterior surface defining a tooth engaging surface and defining second and third through passages, each defining an aperture disposed adjacent to the adjacent to the retromolar pad members when engaged with the patient's teeth, the front hollow housing being selectively engageable to the mouthpiece; and
one of a pressure generating device and an air flow generating device disposed within the first through passage, the generating device configured to create an airflow through the second and third passage and adjacent the retromolar pad members.
