Dr. Avi Weisfogel has highlighted the role that dentistry can play in treating sleep apnea and he is doing an admirable job in this regard. He was an early adopter of those using custom-designed dental devices to help patients keep their airway open and enjoy a healthy night’s sleep.
The benefits of regular, deep sleep are numerous and a healthy looking appearance is one that is immediately noticeable. The guidelines for most people suggest 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night. Those who get 6 hours or less per night can show the negative effects of sleep deprivation in their facial appearance. Eventually, one’s general health can be compromised and subject to deterioration and chronic conditions could arrive earlier than they normally would.
Puffy eyes are an indication that one’s sleep could be inadequate and may need to be addressed. Premature wrinkling is also a real possibility when one is chronically deprived of quality sleep and can further lead to the degradation of one’s appearance. The rejuvenation that sleep accomplishes in the body cannot be overstated nor can the need to develop optimal sleep habits.
Treating sleep disorders has advanced in recent years and so has research and its findings. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has emerged as a sleep specialist
who uses dentistry to successfully treat sleep apnea. He has 20 years of experience in this unique field
and has founded a group known as Healthy Heart Sleep. This allows him to share his wide array of skills
in treating sleep disorders with other medical professionals.
Dental Sleep Masters is also one of Dr. Weisfogel’s endeavors
and it reveals to dentists the special role they can play in helping their patients improve their quality of life by improving their sleep. This not only helps patients with potentially serious disorders, it also increases the range of services that dentists can provide and helps them build their practices
Custom-fitted dental devices are the primary method that Dr. Weisfogel uses to help patients avoid the effects of sleep apnea. This enables the patient to maintain an open airway and allows breathing during sleep to be uninterrupted.
