Sleep Disorder Treatment in Denver, CO
Are you dreaming of restful sleep? If you are someone who snores every night or is dealing with obstructive sleep apnea, then you may definitely be wishing that your ZZZs were a little more restful. Here at Denver Sleep Apnea Center, our board-certified dentist Dr. Steven Wilk specializes in treating conditions such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea through the use of convenient and comfortable oral appliance therapy. Here’s what you should know about these common sleep disorders and how we can help.
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 some of these symptoms and bring them to your attention. If so, it’s 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.
How We Can Help
Whether you are dealing with sleep apnea or snoring, our sleep dentist Dr. Wilk is ready to help you. We can evaluate your condition and determine if oral appliance therapy is ideal for you. From there, we can create and fit you with the device. While it may take a few weeks to get used to, the device should be comfortable to wear, especially as compared to CPAP therapy. Over the first few weeks of use, you should start to notice more energy and feeling more refresh when you wake up. You may need to nap less, and you may notice that you sleep more soundly throughout the night.
Let Dr. Wilk and the team at Denver Sleep Apnea Center help you get the quality sleep you’ve been looking for.
