Sleep apnea and periodontal disease

Is there any relationship between periodontal disease and sleep apnea? My father is suffering from some periodontal disease and has swollen and loose gums and he is using dental implants to get rid of it.  He has a snoring problem and now showing some symptoms of sleep apnea as well. Are they related to periodontal diseases? We are planning to get an anti snoring device ( http://www.parkerhilldental.com/our-services/anti-snoring-appliances/ ) to control the snoring issue. Is it really effective?  Would that enough to solve this issue? Or should we consult any specialist for treatment?
