Dr. Avi Weisfogel has helped advance the craft of dentistry by combining it with the latest improvements in treating sleep apnea. He has been among the pioneers who use custom designed dental implants to treat patients struggling with sleep apnea and its attendant complications and symptoms.
To say that modern life is busy would be the understatement of the year as life seems to go by in a blur for many people balancing demanding jobs, family responsibilities, and recreational activities. Sleep can be one of the casualties in such circumstances and when combined with a disorder like sleep apnea one’s quality of life can be seriously degraded.
A healthy appearance can often be the first thing to go and it can manifest itself with a tired, baggy eyed look which includes puffiness. Wrinkles can then appear earlier and with more prominence. For most people, 7-9 hours of sleep per night are recommended and can work wonders in health and complexion. The body accomplishes major restorative work during sleep, which promotes good health and a glowing appearance.
Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders and is characterized by pauses during sleep, which can last a few seconds or up to a complete minute. Overweight people have a greater risk for this disorder, although it can happen to anyone. Anyone willing to work hard to lose weight may benefit with a reduction in symptoms. However, losing weight is often very difficult to do and medical treatment may become the best option.
