Sleep apnea is a disorder affecting millions of people in America and across the world. Previously seen as a relatively harmless disease, it is now seen as being something much more harmful. This shocking discovery is due to the investigations doctor Avi Weisfogel and his company Dental Sleep Masters. A massively underdiagnosed disease, sleep apnea is now believed to be connected to many chronic illnesses. Among diseases connected to sleep apnea one can find diabetes, hypertension, and stroke. Weisfogel’s research marks a new chapter in our understand of sleep apnea. It is certainly fair from the benign quirk it is popularly portrayed as.
In order for Dental Sleep Masters to achieve this breakthrough discovery, Dr.Weisfogel had to change the way that he and his team of sleep physicians and dentists conducts their research. Dentists are included in this conversation because they may prove to be valuable in the diagnosis and treatment of this disorder. Currently, sleep apnea is often treated by mechanical means that simply are not effective in treating many cases of the disorder. Dental Sleep Masters is developing innovative ways of creating far more effective devices for treating sleep apnea. THN Sleep Therapy is one example of such devices. This implantable device can be given to patients without any of the disruptions today’s sleep apnea treatments tend to have. Dr.Avi Weisfogel has shed new light on an issue rarely treated as anything more than a trivial concern. His team of medical professionals could change the way those of us afflicted with sleep apnea live.
