Complimentary Sleep Consultations

Millions of people snore and have trouble sleeping. Many resort to sleep medications or simply do nothing and continue living with this subtle handicap. What most people are unaware of is that a very high percentage of these people also suffer from a more serious disorder called sleep apnea. Jeffry S. Kerbs, DDS, says, “Our dental office has special equipment to help screen for sleep breathing issues, which include apnea and snoring. Getting a good night's sleep is healing and without good sleep, health issues can begin to develop, including diabetes and high blood pressure which are life threatening.” According to Kerbs, people with sleep apnea also have a five times greater chance of dying from cancer, a 70 percent higher chance of stroke, and are seven times more likely to have a car accident.
The traditional medical treatment for this disorder is a CPAP machine. “Though the CPAP is very effective, most people find that it interferes with their lifestyle,” says Kerbs. “We can help you achieve overall wellness with a custom oral device to open airways and relieve your body of the stress of continual waking and restless sleep.”
Dr. Kerbs understands the importance of diagnosing and treating sleep apnea and offers complimentary consultations to evaluate if his patients could benefit from his treatment.
