Dental Sleep Masters, founded by Dr. Avi Weisfogel, works tirelessly to diagnose and treat sleep apnea disorder. The damaging effects of this disorder become more obvious over time, and now research has shown that it could have a connection with diabetes, cardiovascular issues, and even strokes. With this new information, it is obvious that treatment for sleep apnea becomes ever more important.
Dr. Weisfogel uses his vast experience in working with this disorder to diagnose and then treat his patients. 90% of cases are never diagnosed, so now Dr. Avi Weisfogel along with his team at Dental Sleep Masters are on a mission to highlight the dangers of sleep apnea and finds ways to advance treatment options. What they have come up with is a new plan for primary and secondary care physicians that also includes Doctors who specialize is sleep disorders. This plan represents the whole picture, and ends in better patient care.
Dentists join with Doctors, offering clinical support for patients. The more that is known about sleep apnea, the better treatment options become. Dentists may soon discover that a big part of their practice will be about the diagnosis, as well as the treatment for this disorder. New devices designed to help treat patients at the clinical care level are in use even now, and research continues for better methods.
Not every patient does well with older models of mechanical treatment options. THN Sleep Therapy was recently introduced by ImThera Medical and has received full approval from the FDA for its use in clinical trials. This new machine is much smaller in size, and it is hoped that in itself will bring more patients to seek treatment for their sleep apnea. This small device is implantable, and does not rely on noisy machines or confining masks.
Integrating medical and dental professionals is very important to create effective treatment. Dr. Weisfogel’s model provides care that works and will provide great benefit to those troubled by this disorder. By treating the undiagnosed 90%, all professionals involved will see an increase in business as well performing a valuable service to the public.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel takes his solid background as founder of Dental Sleep Masters and puts it to excellent use treating sleep disorders. After establishing his first dental practice in 1999, and managing it for 15 plus years, Dr. Weisfogel earned the title “Best Dentist” several times. It was in those years that his desire to understand sleep apnea encouraged him to learn all he could about the disorder itself, and what could be done about effective treatment.
Dr. Weisfogel has founded more than one company with the only focus being on sleep disorders that are tied to dental issues. He founded Dental Sleep Masters in 2014 to help dentists find their way in the world of treatment for this disorder via the use of oral appliances designed for the purpose. Through his experience and knowledge of this field, he helps others to identify the undiagnosed 90%, and get them the treatment they need.
