Signs of Obstructive Sleep Apnea


Wondering if you or your partner has OSA? Some signs and symptoms include:

  • Loud, chronic snoring
  • Pauses in breathing
  • Gasping or choking for air at night
  • Morning headaches
  • Severe fatigue
  • Daytime exhaustion
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Brain fog
  • Increased irritability and mood swings
  • Decreased sex drive

It isn’t always easy to recognize some of these symptoms in yourself, especially ones that occur while sleeping; however, your partner may notice and bring them to your attention. If so, it is important not to ignore them. Sleep apnea requires treatment and can lead to serious and life-threatening health problems if left untreated.

Is Snoring a Problem?


Snoring is often one of the telltale signs of sleep apnea; however, not all snoring is caused by OSA. It’s important to be assessed by a board-certified sleep specialist to find out if your snoring could be caused by sleep apnea. Of course, even if you’re simply dealing with snoring, these annoying nocturnal sounds can also lead to poor and restless sleep. If you’d like to discover what quality sleep can feel like without snoring, then oral appliance therapy can provide you with the easy, portable, and easy-to-wear solution you’re looking for.

PATIENT REVIEWS

This is an extremely well-organized office. You can tell that everyone acts as a team. Paperwork is prepared in advance. The dental technician is well trained and explains each procedure before she does it. It is obvious that the practice is the state of the art. Follow on appointments are made without delay. Doctor Wilk explains in detail the various options and allows you to make the best choice. I’m looking forward to the next appointment.

I was using a CPAP machine( which was very cumbersome ), until I visited Dr. Wilk two years ago, he fit me with a mouth appliance to substitute the CPAP machine. I was very skeptical at the beginning but it worked great with no discomfort, now I sleep and feel better, and when I travel I just take a small mouth guard case, so much more convenient. I highly recommend Dr. Wilk for his services, he and his staff are very professional and also very nice.

Excellent service every time! Attention to details, helpful and knowledgeable staff!
