"Back to the big question, why do we sleep? Well, in 1983, rush Jeff and published a landmark finding that sleep is essential for survival and not just for humans, but for rats and other mammals too. Well, I think it's pretty true to have really kind of established how I was essentially this to survival to sleep. You know that if you don't sleep, you develop all kinds of very complex metabolic immune disturbances that your wall body breaks down. I think that has been one of his major contributions. His experimental research in animals has shown that sleep actually serves a vital function for our survival and his experimental rats that he studied, who were continuously sleep deprived. Not only suffered severe health effects, but died after about two to three weeks of sleep deprivation. So this was really a turning point to show the critical importance of sleep to good health in life. I was lucky enough to meet him at the end of my fellowship in 2001. When I was given the award for excellence as a fellow. And at the time, the sleep fellows first thing they were given to read was the scoring system, the standardized scoring system that he developed, which still forms the basis of our scoring manuals used worldwide today. And he signed my scoring manual and finally said to me before I leave, good luck. Rest chef and also shaped our understanding of sleep disorders today. Along with William dement, he identified and defined the world's first true sleep disorder. Narcolepsy. You know, even in narcolepsy, which is my baby, the problem with narcolepsy is really that they can't stay awake. So basically, all day long, say, they just very tired, kind of a fog. And then to have to take naps, they would be talking on the phone and they would fall asleep. So they have a lot of problems staying awake. And then when they sleep, they feel better, but it only lasts for one hour. And then after it restarts. So narcolepsy was a mystery since the 19th century. And people have always felt that there was something to be found. I mean, you know, when you're just read the literature, people knew that it was a real disease entity. He was the first to really report patients with narcolepsy you were going straight into rem sleep together with demand because of course after the discovery of rem sleep, everyone sought, oh my God, narcolepsy is clear that it's a rem sleep problem and it was one of the first two actually publish a case series where he was really showing that patient was narcolepsy goes straight from being awake to rem sleep. I cite that paper very often. The discovery of narcolepsy paved the way for diagnosing all kinds of sleep disorders. Today, there are more than 80 recognized sleep disorders. But up until last year, scientists had no idea what caused narcolepsy. That's until doctor Emmanuel McGill made a breakthrough discovery. That story and the future of sleep research after the break.

"sleep disorder narcolepsy" Discussed on The Thriving Dentist Show with Gary Takacs
"And so all the different appliances, whether it's over the Internet or you're making custom or whatever you're doing with them, that's how they work. And that's an amazing way for them to work. I mean, we used to be able to, we used to have an appliance that didn't work on your job. We just pulled your tongue right out of your mouth with like a turkey basin. It looked like the end of a bulb of a furnace. And that was very effective, except everybody hated it, just like they do CPAP. So nobody taught me that. So what we have now with oral appliance therapy is a very comfortable way to move our jaws forward and keep them there and also help to treat the sleep apnea. And that's basically how it works. And there's all different designs on how to do that, we can go into that as if you want to do, but that's how you talk about the designs that you use in your practice. So the main design that I usually use, it's called a dorsal fin design. And there's a few companies that many companies make this type of design. They make them different ways. But what we do is you take the jaw, you put an appliance and it almost looks like a night guard, if you've never seen any of these. It would look like a night guard with like a two post sticking up in the back, maybe in the molar region. And then you would put another night guard, say, on the maxillary teeth, and that would have posts going down also in that same, you know, and the mandibular post would be just anterior to the maxillary posts so that when you went backwards, it would keep you in a forward movement and you couldn't go backwards. But it would allow you to move around the post or have enough length that even if you opened up a little, it would still keep you postured forward. So you would be able to move around right, left, go into those movements. You certainly can go forward. And you can even open a little and it would still be effective in those positions. And that's the main type of appliance without getting into insurance, but I need to a little because some of these patients have Medicare and Medicare, unfortunately, in their formula, you don't allow for those types of appliances. So then there's other types of appliances like the old standard curb type appliances for any people who do an orthodontics. These are old standard herbs, effects appliances. They do the same thing. So we can use those as a sleep appliance as well. There's another appliance. There's a cap appliance where there's the connection is in the front. It's in the interior. Great for patients that don't have any posterior teeth. So there's different appliances that have different ways of basically protruding the mandible. And those are some of the different easily enough testicle on the Internet. You can see great examples of all those. Right. On the business side, what has been the most effective way for you to build the sleep component of your practice has been primarily primarily through colleague referral or direct patient or would have been the ways that you've used to grow this component of your practice. So sleep apnea, we have to understand that in dentistry, sleep apnea is interesting. So I would like everybody to think of sleep apnea this way. Sleep apnea is a medical condition. It's not a dental condition. It's a medical condition. If you were to look at all the different types of sleep disorders, narcolepsy and rem disorder, you would find that obstructive sleep apnea, the one which is the one that we really treat mostly OSA obstructive sleep apnea, it's part of one disorder in the book of sleep disorders. So those disorders are diagnosed by the physicians. There's a lot of battles from state to state and who should be able to diagnose that. It's still the physicians at this point. So they're the ones diagnosed with the patients. So you have to work with your physician colleagues. If you think you're going to get around it, you know, I would argue, you probably shouldn't do that because, you know, why wouldn't you want to work with your physicians anyway? If you can get your physicians to show that you're competent in oral appliance therapy, they will send you these patients. These physicians are saying 2030, 40 patients a day, 20% or more are CPAP, and they can send them your way. So you know, there's different ways of doing it, but I would say making sure that your sleep positions understand that you're committed to treating patients through oral appliance therapy and to helping them to improve their life. And the physicians like this mostly because they want to know that they can refer the patients as somebody who's competent and that dentist who's making these oral appliance has enough knowledge that they could talk to the physician on their level, so to speak. So we can come out with treatment plans because sometimes we're appliance, don't always work. Sometimes we want to use combination therapy. Sometimes we can use CPAP and we're appliance. Together. So there's different ways that we can handle this. I have to say that working with our sleep position colleagues are primary. And that after that, then when you have your own patients that come in, whether through practice or through direct marketing, how are you going to get your diagnosis of sleep apnea? So caution for people that come in and say, well, I'm just snoring and I just need you to make me a snoring appliance. I don't have sleep apnea, I would know it, you know, my wife or husband would have told me they'd never told me that I would tell you that, you know, you don't know if you don't have sleep apnea until you have a sleep study because there are many, many patients that are asymptomatic, and they come in with A-fib, and they have quite a bit of sleep apnea, and they don't know that they have sleep apnea. So for the patient that has snoring and you just want to get rid of the snoring with the same appliance, you could get rid of the sleep apnea too if they have that. So you want to know if they have primary snoring or they actually have sleep apnea as well. Great. Well, I love

Rita introduce him and he stood toe-to-toe with rock in that little promo battle and a lot of guys is very intimidated with a full house. There in chicago. there it wasn't rosa. What is it. Call now. A allstate arena. Yeah yeah yeah. So a in their man and he proved to get into deep water slim. Let's mention to that Well i guess we just wanna context when we saw when we last saw jericho in. Wcw where he's frustrated with creative. beating perry saturn in a loser. Where's address match and now he's interrupting the rocks promo. That's a pretty big difference. Yeah lexcen middle seat. Coach are getting that al seat first class or a private jet. That's better even showed you belong. That's what we wanted so we needed to see. Do you belong in the same age with the rock. And he looked like he'd been there forever. Unfortunately there is no real follow through or follow up on that moment with the rock He gets into a quick view against road. Dogg xbox ken shamrock and really the biggest thing of note is you guys give him a quote unquote heater mr hughes. I'm curious from your perspective where it is courtesy us come from in this jericho package. Well the fan of kurdish use a not for a long time. I used to kidney about. He was defensive tackle for a kansas state. Wildcats and of course being a maslakh you a You know kind of proud of my team sooners. You're proud of your team. That's crimson tide sir I used to call in the mile. Cats m. i. l. d. cats and he laughed a good good natured. Guy you know. He almost got fired after wrestlemania nine because he fell asleep in the air and coach and chief. Jay strongbow cities high. All of that guy. We got i got to tell caesar caesar course events we gotta get rid of this guy he. He derived to that conclusion by sitting cross the way with his wife and me. You'd five at connecticut.

Jericho's getting special treatment getting handled creatively. Well so The curtis is a good guy. Curtis getting ready to write a book which should be very entertaining economic. He wants me or to it. But it's interesting you know. He was corrected he was a black man and an orlando white decision. Makers and so. I got time for kurdish shoes by just didn't think that was the cashing for him. He should have been a big monster heel on his own. In my opinion it doesn't last long. He's going to come. And go in this jerko package pretty quickly and then howard finkel winds up being lackey and frankly this isn't the top level guy run. He probably envisioned when he's interrupting the rock after this big millennium man countdown. In the rumor and innuendo at the time was he wasn't being given rave reviews of his work and allegedly one of his biggest critics behind the scenes was triple h. And we've heard a lot over the years that even if you come in to the world wrestling federation which was time of course if you didn't work. The wwf style candidate matter in terms of well you know. This guy was over in japan or he was over in mexico or he was over in. W w well they didn't exist. Conrad the story was there was a different style and you had to learn the wwf style. Do you agree with that. Or was that just nonsense. I think he needed to learn the ww f. e. whatever you wanna throw in their field the atmosphere of the society of wwe. Yet i understand. There are certain things you could. You should do. Should not do there. and i think i just i don't know i a i don't know triple h didn't like him because he's shorter and his hand and some somebody's are gonna get They're gonna get you know.
