Neurologists board certified in sleep medicine can work with your dentist to evaluate, diagnose, and treat sleep disorders. Oftentimes, your dentist is a first line identifier of symptoms that may indicate an underlying obstructive apnea or other sleep problem. They work in conjunction with sleep physicians and centers certified by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, like the Noran Clinic Sleep Center, to identify these issues. Sleep physicians can then recommend treatment with your dentist when a snoring or apnea disorder is diagnosed. If additional underlying disorders are found to be causing sleep disturbances, your dentist is informed and the sleep neurologist can make other appropriate recommendations for treatment.
