Signs of OSA

The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine estimates that nearly 30 million Americans have sleep apnea symptoms, with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) being the most common type.

One of the most common signs of obstructive sleep apnea is loud and chronic snoring, and daytime sleepiness is also common[1]. Others signs and symptoms also include:

  • Morning headaches
  • Memory or learning problems and not being able to concentrate
  • Feeling irritable, depressed, or having mood swings or personality changes
  • Waking up frequently to urinate
  • Dry mouth or sore throat when you wake up

Although above are the major symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, women tend to report more non-typical symptoms of sleep apnea compared to men such as:

    • Higher levels of fatigue, tiredness, and lack of energy[2]
    • Restless legs, depression, and insomnia[3]

    It's also common that many people with sleep apnea do not recognize that they have sleep apnea since many of the symptoms happen during sleep. Why not ask your partner about how you slept last night?  After all, sleep apnea can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender or weight.

    What is the cause of OSA?

    OSA occurs when the tongue and soft palate collapse onto the back of the throat and block the airway during your sleep. It restricts the flow of oxygen and causes common OSA symptoms like snoring or gasping.

    The symptoms of OSA are often the result from obstructed breathing during sleep leading to an insufficient amount of oxygen to the brain. Learn how our oral devices treat sleep apnea.
