Technology plays such an important role in our daily lives. If you add up all the technology that you used today, the number would probably surprise you. We use technology in our office to assist with our diagnosis and treatment of TMD being that it is a complex disorder with many potential causes.
Now that we have successfully made it through the first month of 2021 and all the craziness of the holiday season and new year are over, now is the perfect time for a reset to focus on yourself and your health. There is no better area to focus on than your sleep habits and sleep patterns. Sleep is essential to your overall health, both physical and mental. It affects so many areas of your daily life, from energy, to weight loss or weight gain and mood.
An article in Science Daily shares the findings of a new study by Monarch University that discusses a link between obstructive sleep apnea and dementia. I’d like to share this with you not only to shed light on the importance of sleep therapy, but also to help you understand potential concerns if a treatment plan is not followed.
When you visit our office, you may meet with some of our team members, but you may not know just how awesome they are! Our team is integral in helping patients like you get the TMD and sleep apnea therapy they need in order to lead healthier lives. I count on them every day to bring their A game, and they never disappoint. This month, I’d like to highlight Mackenzie Jakola, our New Patient Coordinator and Marketing Manager. You’ve probably seen her around the office, but I’d love for you to get to know her a little better. Read on to learn more.
