One of the common problems that many people are suffering from these days is sleep apnea. The problem is that many of the individuals who are suffering from sleep apnea are not aware that they are suffering from it. Thus, it leads to people suffering from a wide range of health and mental issues, such as mood swings, fatigue, lack of concentration, irritation, and more. The common trend among the people these days is to cut down on their sleep to work more, and many even have endless cups of coffee to keep sleep away. It is a culture that is self-destructive because the body needs sound sleep of seven to eight hours, and it is as essential to the body as three to four hours of water a day or the oxygen we breathe.
As the after effects or the negative side effects of sleep deprivation are not easily or immediately visible, people often tend to take it lightly and feel that nothing is going to happen. Dr. Avi Weisfogel studied dentistry but after years of practicing dentistry has focused on sleep disorders, especially sleep apnea. He founded Unlimited Sleep Patient, which is a common platform where he shares his knowledge and research-based information about sleep apnea and other sleep disorders with other doctors. Here is where he also shares his knowledge and skills related to dentistry. Dr. Avi Weisfogel believes that there are oral appliances available that can be used effectively to treat sleeping disorders like sleep apnea.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel holds graduation degree from Rutgers University in Biology and Psychology and has studied dentistry from the College of Dentistry, New York University. He took a specialized course to understand Dental Sleep Medicine as it is not included in the DDS class in most of the universities. Dr. Avi Weisfogel feels that every dentist should be an expert in providing sleep medicine as well because both these conditions are inter-linked. The name of his dental care practice is Old Bridge Dental Care. Thanks to his efforts and advice to hundreds of patients, many people are now free of sleeping disorders and can give importance to sleeping hours.
