A sleep disorder is any medical disorder that affects the sleep patterns.
Disruptions of sleep may be caused by a variety of issues, including:
- Depression or anxiety
- Alcohol abuse
- Night terrors
- Bruxism, or grinding of the teeth
Once these factors are serious enough to disrupt sleep on a regular basis, medical intervention is necessary.
At American Excellence Medical and Dental Clinics, we diagnose sleep disorders with polysomnography, a multi-parametric sleep study.
After the causes of the sleep disorder are determined, a treatment plan is devised to get the patient back to a good night’s sleep.
