There is often a correlation between grinding your teeth, TMJ disorders, breakdown of the teeth and sleep disorders. Sleep apnea can also increase your risk for many different health conditions including heart attack and stroke.
At Piskorski Dental, we have implemented sleep screenings at your routine dental visits. If Dr. Piskorski feels it is necessary, we will forward the screening on to your medical doctor and you will be instructed to schedule a time to discuss it with them. In some instances, your medical doctor may order a sleep study to determine whether or not you have sleep apnea and how severe it may be.
