Dr. Avi Weisfogel’s Greatest Accomplishments

Sleep is vital for the body’s health as it helps the body rest and to repair itself. The recommended time for sleep is 7 to 9 hours and nothing less than 6 hours as it may have adverse results on your body. Sleep apnea is sleep disorder where one develops long pauses during breathing when asleep. This condition causes one to wake up during the night after choking when breathing resumes from a long break. Since it may even occur more than thirty times an hour, it deprives a person of his sleep which after several sleepless nights may be unhealthy. This condition can affect anyone but is most common in overweight people due to lots of fat which may block airways.

He has pioneered the Dental Sleep Master’s Program primarily for sleep apnea. The program uses oral applied therapy to cure Sleep Apnea.
