Dr. Avi Weisfogel is spearheading the effort to make known the innovative techniques that dentistry has for patients who are struggling to get a good night’s sleep.

Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders and its chief detriment is the pauses that occur and disrupt one’s sleep. These could last a few seconds or sometimes as long as a full minute and the end result is sleep that is constantly interrupted. In the short-term, facial appearance can be impacted with tired, baggy eyes providing evidence that one’s sleep quality is lacking. The long-term consequences are more serious as risk factors increase for debilitating illnesses. The need to address chronic sleep deprivation is therefore of the utmost importance and Dr. Avi Weisfogel is helping to make inroads in this regard with his innovative approach.
The pioneering use of dental devices has been the hallmark of Dr. Weisfogel’s career in dentistry as he’s treated many patients successfully. It is something that he encountered early in his career and this led him to total immersion in the scientific literature to gain a better understanding of sleep disorders.
The use of dental devices has several advantages for patients struggling to get a good night’s sleep and Dr. Avi Weisfogel recognized this early on. They are more comfortable to wear than standard medical equipment which means that the compliance rate is greater. They are effective in keeping the airway open so that sleep can go on uninterrupted and they are also easy to travel with.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel is an advocate of collaboration between medical professionals and dentists to more comprehensively combat sleep disorders. He has actively worked to make known the advantages to both professions and ultimately the greatest beneficiary is the patients themselves.
Dental Sleep Masters is an organization that was founded by Dr. Weisfogel and they help dentists integrate sleep disorder treatment into their practices. They are expert marketers in this particular niche and are helping more patients find relief.
