Diagnosing and Treating Sleep Apnea: Dental Sleep Masters

Sleep Apnea is a condition that has plagued patients for years, and customers are now beginning to understand the destructive effects of this condition. Also, there has been new scientific research that has linked sleep apnea to other serious conditions, like diabetes and stroke. Dr. Avi Weisfogel, founder of Dental Sleep Masters, has background in sleep disorders and works to help patients who suffer from this disorder.

Weisfogel’s main goal is to help patients become diagnosis with this disorder. 90% of patients with the disorder remain undiagnosed. He wants to increase awareness of this disorder in order for those who are troubled by it to be able to seek treatment.

Dental Sleep Masters is a new medical model where physicians and dentists work together to develop and care for patients. This practice has certified physicians who are able to care for patients during the diagnosis process in their sleep labs. Sleep apnea has been a disease that has been treated by dentists in the past, but now at Dental Sleep Masters, patients can receive the services of both physicians and dentists.

New treatments are being sought that want to move patients away from these large sleep machines to smaller devices, even implants, and other alternative treatments. Those who suffer from sleep apnea may wake up close to 30 times per night, so they are working towards trying to keep the airways open for patients to stay asleep and breath easier.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel has partnered his physicians with dentists which will help to give his patients the best care and the most effective treatment. Dental Sleep Masters will find their business grow while helping those who suffer from this destructive disorder.
