Sleep apnea is becoming a common problem. Not only does a person not get optimal sleep, but the sleep disorder may also lead to other potential health conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Around 90% of people who have Sleep Apnea don’t know it. Dr. Avi Weisfogel, the founder of Dental Sleep Masters, is leading a new system to help prevent and treat this sleep disorder. Dental Sleep Masters has created a new model for primary care and secondary physicians. Sleep doctors, doctors, and dentists have joined forces to give clinical support to individuals who suffer from sleep apnea.
The good news is that treatments are becoming stronger, more effective and plentiful. There are always new treatments emerging. One example is the THN Sleep Therapy device. The THN device is a small, surgically implanted system for patients who suffer from Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea. This device was developed by ImThera Medical and is currently used for clinical trials.
Another piece of great news is that treatments are becoming smaller and easier for patients to use. For example, the THN device is a small implant, and patients are not required to wear a mask as they would with a CPAP machine.
