The Silent Epidemic
Sleep apnea is one of the most common disorders in the world yet treatments for this disorder are fairly cumbersome. The need to develop new and more efficient ways to help sleep apnea patients is often ignored, but a new research team at Dental Sleep Masters is addressing the disorder. Dr.Avi Weisfogel, the founder of Dental Sleep Masters, understands sleep disorders and how these pervasive conditions tend to miss the public eye. In fact more than 90% of sleep apnea cases are undiagnosed. Improving the diagnosis and treatment of this condition is why Weisfogel created Dental Sleep Masters.
The Omen Of Chronic Disease
Sleep apnea is often considered a mild nuisance by many laypersons, but the condition is often comorbid with chronic illnesses. According to Weisfogel and his research team sleep apnea patients are significantly more likely to suffer from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and many other severe diseases. In Weisfogel’s view the best way to treat sleep apnea is to integrate treatment into dental practice. Dentists can add sleep apnea treatment to their practice.
Dentists Can Fix It
With over 15 years of experience in practicing dentistry its no surprise that his current projects at Dental Sleep Masters are producing better and less invasive treatments for sleep apnea. Weisfogel’s innovations have even earned him the Best Dentist award multiple times. At the center of his approach is finding ways for dentists and physicians to combine efforts to improve the treatment of sleep apnea. Dentists often deal with patients affected by sleep apnea, but the tools at their disposal are fairly limited compared to what a physician may have access to. Through his research at Dental Sleep Master’s Weisfogel hopes to create the bridges needed to finally tackle this condition and give patients the care they deserve.
