How Dr. Avi Weisfogel Found Success with Dental Sleep Masters

Sleep apnea is a very dangerous condition that many people have, yet about 90% of people who have it are not diagnosed, despite the fact that the condition repeatedly stops them from breathing every night. Research has shown a strong correlation between those who suffer from sleep apnea and a variety of serious medical conditions, such as diabetes, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. Dr. Avi Weisfogel founded a company called Dental Sleep Masters, which was created to help dentists and other medical professionals effectively treat their patients who have this condition. Dr. Avi Weisfogel‘s company has a system which includes certified sleep technicians who operate sleep labs where people can be diagnosed with sleep apnea. Primary and secondary care physicians have access to these sleep labs where their patients can undergo a sleep test that monitors their sleep and breathing patterns.
Dental Sleep Masters and Dr. Avi Weisfogel created a new device, called ImThera Medical, which helps to treat cases of sleep apnea that haven’t previously responded to existing mechanical treatments. His device has been approved by the FDA for clinical trials in order to determine its efficacy.
