Sleep disturbances in temporomandibular disorders: a narrative review

AbstractSleep complaints are frequently reported by patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD). This review aims to offer dental practitioners and allied specialties a basic understanding of sleep quality, measured it subjectively and objectively, and common sleep disturbances that are present in TMD patients. Guidance in identifying and managing patients with TMD and comorbid sleep related complaints will be provided as well. Dentists should be able to screen sleep disorders such as insomnia, sleep disordered breathing (apnea, snoring), or sleep bruxism, and to refer patients to the appropriate specialist when necessary Individualized management and a multidisciplinary approach must be pursued when managing patients with TMD and comorbid sleep disturbances and/or sleep disorders, such as insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea.

Further clinical research is warranted to determine the effectiveness of cannabis in managing endometriosis symptoms. In locations where medicinal cannabis is more accessible, there remains a paucity of evidence for its clinical efficacy with endometri...

Parkinson's disease is characterized by the aggregation and spread of misfolded α-synuclein throughout the brain, though, as for all neurodegenerative conditions, there are many layers of cause and effect, and chronic inflammation and cellular dysfunction play noted roles as well. There has been some debate in recent years over whether the α-synuclein aggregation of Parkinson's disease begins in the gut or the brain, with evidence presented for both sides. The authors of this open access paper suggest that both are the case, and Parkinson's can be divided into two subtypes depending on the origin of α-syn...
