Grinding teeth and sleep

Did you know that tooth grinding may cause microarousals that cause you to have poor sleep quality? This form of grinding or clenching is called NOCTURNAL PARAFUNCTION and should be treated if possible. People who have sleep apnea or hypopneas, are more prone to morning headaches and excessive daytime sleepiness. CALL for an appointment to be assessed and take the Epworth Sleep Test!

Parkinson's disease

The following statements are true of REM-Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) EXCEPT:

It can precede motor symptoms of Parkinson disease by several years
It can occur with alcohol withdrawal
It can be manifested by motor symptoms and/or vocalizations
It is reliably reported by Parkinson patients in the morning
It is additionally reported by bed partners or caregivers

Correct answer: "reliably reported by Parkinson patients in the morning"

Some people with movement disorders respond to treatment with oral dental appliances. See Dr. Brendan Stack on You Tube.
