Institution’s Environment and Dental Care Practitioner’s Community:
Dr. Avi Weisfogel has brought to the Dental Community, a sensational program which he refers to as the Dental Sleep Masters’ program. The program is very important since it alerts the Dental practitioner as well as the Physician, alike, about a very serious sleep disorder–that disorder is: Sleep Apnea.
The objective of the Dental Sleep Masters’ program, according to Dr. Avi Weisfogel, is to provide the Physician or Dental Professional with the means and resources, in order to properly identify clientele who possess the disorder.
Too: when the Physician or Dental Professional places this program into his practice, he attains a second stream of income. He is able to educate the public, too, about the seriousness of Sleep Apnea.
Sleep Apnea is tied to more serious health complications such as Diabetes, Heart Failure, and Cardiovascular Disease. It, too, can cause the sufferer an entire host of problems upon waking. Some of the signs the individual may possess the disorder follow. However, it must be noted that just because an individual has some of these symptoms, it does not mean the symptom, in and of itself, means he has the sleep disorder: the only person that can offer the proper diagnosis is the health institutional professional or the Dentist, whom the sufferer regularly visits.
As promised, the relative signs of possible Sleep Apnea are listed below:
- Loud Snoring,
- Interrupted Breathing,
- Feeling Tired Upon Waking,
- Difficulty Concentrating
- Experiencing Confusion,
- Becoming Forgetful,
- Dry Mouth,
- Painful Swallowing,
- Restless Sleep, and
- Headache upon Waking.
According to Dr. Avi Weisfogel, there are three types of Sleep Apnea. The three types of Sleep Apnea are listed below:
- Central Sleep Apnea–which is basically a failure of the brain to communicate, properly, in the activation of muscles, required for proper breathing;
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea which is a temporary collapse of the airway; and,
- A combination of the two maladies.
In way of definition: when an individual experiences Sleep Apnea there is a reduction or cessation of breathing, while the patient is engaged in sleeping.
Since, so many times, the disorder goes undiagnosed, according to Dr. Weisfogel, it is easy enough to see why, incorporating a sleep program into the Physician’s practice or within the practice of the Dental practitioner, is so vitally important.
Too: once the preceding is accomplished, according to Dr. Weisfogel, the general public is provided with the necessary resources and information, in order to more fully understand the seriousness of the sleep condition. The practitioner of healthcare provides a much-needed service. He is provided with an additional cash flow to his existing practice–which was noted above.
In the end, according to Dr. Weisfogel, everyone clearly benefits. According to the testimonials, with respect to the efficiency of the Dental Sleep Masters’ program–Dr. Avi Weisfogel could not be more correct.
