Avi Weisfogel: Golden Slumbers

Medical professionals continue to learn more about sleep apnea. In fact, recent research reveals a relationship between sleep apnea and other such serious medical conditions as stroke, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. The founder of Dental Sleep Masters, Doctor Avi Weisfogel, is reputed to have an extensive background in the area of sleep apnea and the treatment of sleep disorders in general.

A New Model For Physicians
Almost 90 percent of the people who suffer from sleep apnea have yet to actually even be diagnosed. Because of this, Dental Sleep Masters has created a new model for physicians. The new model demonstrates the “big picture” of sleep apnea and reportedly yields better results in the long run.

THN Sleep Therapy
The new Dental Sleep Masters tool, known as THN Sleep Therapy, was put together by ImThera Medical. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2014 for use in experimental, clinical trials. This comparatively new tool is a small, implantable device that requires the use of no additional, uncomfortable, disruptive equipment.

The tool is said to stimulate the muscles of the airway thereby keeping them open. The device continues to yield good results. Weisfogel’s model is reported to be essential in the discovery of solutions for the general population’s sleep disorders.

Weisfogel has an extensive amount of experience when it comes to the areas of sleep treatments and sleep disorders. Where did it first start? It started with a formal education.

Weisfogel’s Education
Following high school graduation, Weisfogel attended Rutgers University and earned a BA in biology and psychology. Next came a DDS from New York University College of Dentistry. Finally, Weisfogel launched his first dental practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, in 1999.

During his 15 year practice there, he was considered by the local residents to be the “best dentist” in the community. He also began to investigate sleep, sleep disorders, and their treatments. In 2014 Avi Weisfogel officially opened Dental Sleep Masters. The mission of DSM was a simple one: Help dentists working in the field of sleep disorder treatments through the use of new, advanced oral appliances.
