Is Sleep Apnea affecting you

Sleep apnea can impact your life in many ways beyond just making you feel tired in the morning. If you’re feeling fatigued during the day no matter how much sleep you get, Dr. Robert Karr and Alliance Dental Care will find out if sleep apnea is to blame.

Breathing interruptions are the common cause of sleep apnea. While you’re asleep, the soft tissue in the back of your throat can collapse, causing a blockage of your airway. This greatly affects how you breathe, resulting in exhaustion and potentially leading to serious health issues such as:

  • Diabetes

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart failure

  • Strokes

Dr. Robert Karr is an expert at treating sleep apnea. He’s a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and he will use his extensive education to help you gain a peaceful and healthier night’s rest.

A simple solution for sleep apnea: Oral appliances

Dr. Karr will first recommend that you do a sleep study, which can be performed at home with two Ez Sleep tests. You’ll wear a device that monitors your sleeping patterns. The results will then be examined by a medical doctor who confers with Dr. Karr.

Though sleep apnea is a frustrating and complex condition, treating it is surprisingly easy at Alliance Dental Care.

Dr. Karr will have a customized oral appliance made for you that fits comfortably into your mouth. When worn while you sleep, this appliance will move your jaw into the proper place so your air passage remains clear. You’ll finally enjoy a night of uninterrupted sleep, which will make you much happier to wake up the next day.
