Q: Are Dental Implants Really “Worth It”?
If you’re missing teeth or want to replace any/all of your teeth, we absolutely recommend dental implants! Implants are readily placed into your jaw and are able to hold customized teeth (based on your own individual needs) that will never slip out of place.
Once placed, after three months, implants integrate with the bone and essentially become a part of the bone. Precise restorations are then attached to the implants yielding as close as we can get to natural teeth.
Implants have improved the quality of life and transformed thousands of lives!

Q: I’m Having Trouble Sleeping. Do You Offer Sleep Apnea Treatment?
It may come as a surprise that your sleeplessness could be caused by a dental-related issue. Sleep apnea is caused by your tongue relaxing and falling back on your throat closing your airway. This causes interruptions in your breathing, irregular-erratic heartbeats causing you to wake up frequently gasping for breath, and often accompanied by loud snoring; your body is in a crisis mode. While you are awake, you would never let this happen but because you are asleep, the crisis happens. Without refreshing sleep, you are subject to mid-day exhaustion and forgetfulness along with other health issues such as obesity, diabetes, and dementia. Yes, we now know causation factors.
Life DOES NOT have to be this way. Dr. Karr has extensive experience in treating sleep apnea, and he can provide guidance in diagnosis and treatment with a portable, convenient oral appliance that ensures you receive the rejuvenating night’s sleep you need!
