Kansas City Dentist Provides At-Home Sleep Study for Sleep Apnea Patients

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwired - March 29, 2015) - Dr. Robert Klein, a trusted Kansas City and Liberty cosmetic dentist, is now offering at-home sleep studies for sleep apnea patients.

The at-home sleep test results, combined with the patented palatal snoring analysis, allows Dr. Klein to analyze a patient's snoring and determine the appropriate treatment.

Sleep apnea is caused by an obstructed airway, and the dangerous disorder can increase the risk of diabetes, obesity, heart failure, stroke and high blood pressure if left untreated.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Central Sleep Apnea are the two main types of sleep apnea, with Obstructive Sleep Apnea being the most common. It's common for sleep apnea patients to experience constant fatigue, anxiety, depression and lack of concentration. These side effects can lead to serious problems at work or in the patient's personal life.

Dr. Klein, owner of Highland Dental Clinic, said sleep apnea patients appreciate being able to complete their study from their own bed instead of inside a laboratory.

"With the at-home sleep study, we feel as though we're getting even better results because the patient is in the comfort of their own home," said the Kansas City dentist. "We're also finding that patients are more likely to complete a home-sleep study vs. having to go to an unfamiliar place for an entire night."

Highland Dental Clinic, 9764 North Ash Ave., provides general dentistry, cosmetic dental treatment, endodontic therapy and sedation dentistry. The dental practice offers same-day emergency services, same-day crowns, same-day dentures, root canals, veneers, low cost dental implants, full mouth reconstructions, teeth whitening, Fastbraces and Invisalign. Dr. Klein provides all levels of sedation, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation and IV sedation.

Dr. Klein recently broke ground on a new office that will have more space for surgical suites. The building, which is located in Kansas City, will be a stand-alone structure that will include two surgical suites equipped with the latest anesthesia technology, such as video laryngoscopy. Dr. Klein's staff also is trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support. Patients also can expect more space for their comfort, additional parking spaces and more room for new technology.

Dr. Klein is a dental implant dentist who can restore a patient's smile and chewing ability in just one day through affordable dental care. Sedation dentistry allows him to serve patients who have a fear of the dentist or those who need multiple procedures completed in one visit. Highland Dental Clinic also has two board-certified physician anesthesiologists on staff that provide deep sedation and general anesthesia for dental surgery. No other dental offices in the area offers general anesthesia.

Dr. Klein was introduced to dentistry by his father, Dr. Tubey Klein, who has practiced for more than three decades in Missouri. Dr. Klein began his practice in Kansas City seven years ago. He received his bachelor of arts degree in psychology from the University of Missouri in 2000 and then his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Missouri in 2004. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Greater Kansas City Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, Missouri Dental Association and has received advanced training at The Dawson Academy in comprehensive dentistry.

At Highland Dental Clinic, Dr. Klein uses the latest technology to serve his dedicated patients. His office includes a cone beam scanner and E4D technology. With this technology, Dr. Klein can provide Kansas City All on 4 dental implants in just one visit. He also oversees patients' treatment from start to finish and does not refer services like dental implants or root canals to other dental practices.
