June is National Men's Health Month and Dr. Kifer is hoping to educate all Fayetteville men and their loved ones about the dangers of sleep apnea. This condition is sadly underdiagnosed  and, of the 12 million people who do know they have it, many often do not get the treatment they need for a variety of reasons.

“Although sleep apnea can affect everyone, including children, those most commonly affected by sleep apnea are men,” explains Dr. Kifer.  Men most at risk for sleep apnea are those who are overweight or obese, over the age of forty and consume alcohol frequently.

If sleep apnea is left untreated, the individual can stop breathing repeatedly during the night, sometimes for a minute or longer. These periods without oxygen increase high blood pressure in patients and raise the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular disease. Some indicators that a man may need sleep apnea treatment include chronic snoring, restless sleep, morning headaches, and weight gain.

The most common type of apnea is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), and it can often be remedied with a dental appliance provided by our office. New discoveries in technology have produced modern dental appliances that can not only ease the symptoms of sleep apnea, but also help to ensure a full night of sleep and a longer, healthier life.

Dr. Kifer and our team are on a mission to educate patients on reducing risk factors by maintaining regular dental check-ups and encouraging their friends and family who exhibit symptoms of sleep apnea to schedule evaluations.

For additional information about sleep apnea, or to schedule a free evaluation for the men in your life, contact Dr. Kifer at 479-521-2002 or visit www.nwafamilydentist.com.

  1. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee.
