Good sleep is said to be one of the most important things for a health body, yet many people are not able to get the proper sleep needed. For some, this issue is caused by sleep apnea, a sleep disorder caused by irregular breathing. In past years, sleep apnea has been linked with common health issues such as diabetes and strokes. This link between sleep and major health concerns caused Dr. Avi Weisfogel to further research regarding sleep apnea.
Dr. Weisfogel is the founder of Dental Sleep Masters, a company focused on the research and treatment of sleep apnea. One aspect of Dr. Weisfogel’s company is to enlighten doctors and the general public about sleep apnea, as 90% of those struggling with sleep apnea don’t realize they have sleep apnea. Dental Sleep Masters works directly with dentists, as Dr. Weisfogel feels that many dentists will be diagnosing and treating sleep apnea in the future.
Dr. Weisfogel started his dental practise in 1999 and continued in it for 15 years. During that time, Dr. Weisfogel studied sleep apnea and possible cures; he also founded several companies that focused on dental linked sleep apnea. To further research and treatment of sleep apnea, Dr. Weisfogel started Dental Sleep Masters in 2014. He uses his knowledge to educate other dentists in the signs of sleep apnea. He has created treatments that are small and easy to use as many of the old treatments were impractical in everyday use.
Dr. Weisfogel and his company Dental Sleep Masters, have been very beneficial in helping patients with their sleep apnea, as well as presenting the situation to doctors. This treatment of sleep apnea will not only help general health issues but could also improve and prevent serious health issues as well.
