Your brain never rests. It is active even during sleep. The different stages of sleep are determined by the change in brain wave patterns. These are recorded with an electroencephalograph (EEG). It was in the 1950s that Eugene Aserinsky discovered REM sleep using the electroencephalograph learning that sleep occurs in stages. These stages can be determined according to the different brain wave patterns your brains produce during sleep. Today, your Reno dentists, Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans explain the importance of REM sleep.
Sleep is not a new concept. You know that you need sleep. You can’t get anything accomplished when you’re drowsy.

In fact, sleep problems can begin before a person becomes a teen. In today’s sleep blog, your Reno dentists, Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans explain what happens while you’re falling asleep.
