To stay healthy and rejuvenated, a person requires having at least 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Some people have sleep disorders that deprive them of the chance to get quality sleep. Many sleep specialists, such as Dr. Avi Weisfogel, have emerged and they are looking into the causes and treatment of such disorders.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a renowned dentist. In the course of his work, he interacted with patients who suffered from sleep apnea. Such experiences led him to develop an interest in sleep disorders and started to research on how dental medicine could be used in their treatments. He was the pioneer in Dental Sleep Medicine and has largely contributed to research and development of the sector. His endeavor to contribute to the growth of this branch of medicine led him to open an avenue that medics can come together and brainstorm on sleep disorders, the Healthy Heart Sleep. He did not stop there as he opened another platform that he uses to share his experiences in the field, Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient. He shows his commitment to the success of Dental Sleep Medicine by continually communicating with other doctors through texts, calls, monthly webinars, and medical retreats.
As he continued advancing in Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Avi Weisfogel developed treatment programs for sleep apnea. He started Dental Sleep Master’s Program that he uses to share these treatment and relief methods. One symptom of sleep apnea is interrupted breathing during sleep. Tonsils and tongue flaps are cited to be culprits of obstructing free air flow when one is sleeping. He discovered oral appliances that a patient can wear when sleeping to ensure that breathing is not obstructed.
