Foggy Brain From Lack of Sleep Is Actually Biological

We’ve all experienced that feeling of fogginess after pulling an all-nighter for work or staying out too late with friends on a weeknight. Feeling forgetful or taking longer to process our thoughts because of exhaustion is simply an expected part of not getting enough sleep. A new joint study from researchers at Tel Aviv University, UCLA and the University of Wisconsin has discovered exactly how this lack of sleep affects brain activity.

The teams determined that individual neurons in the brain actually slow down due to sleep deprivation, causing a delayed response behaviorally and cognitively. This neural slowing messes with visual perception and memory associations in the brain.

Sick and Tired: How the Immune System Suffers When We Don’t Sleep

A new study suggests that chronic sleep deprivation can negatively impact the immune system, leading to an increased incidence of illness. The study, conducted by the University of Washington Health Sciences/UW Medicine, confirms how the immune system is compromised when the body is not fully rested. Many factors can cause and contribute to sleep deprivation, so it is important to recognize the signs and risk factors to combat sleep deprivation early on.

DR. BUCK'S PHILOSOPHY

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
