Avi Weisfogel uses a treatment for sleep apnea which is a custom-fit oral appliance that is risk free. This appliance is used to treat dental patients with obstructive sleep apnea. This is the most common form of sleep apnea. It is recognized in patients by snoring, daytime tiredness, insomnia and headaches when waking. Some patients can even experience mood changes, trouble with concentration and forgetfulness. Breathing can stop while sleeping since the throat muscles become too relaxed. The appliance looks very much like a mouth guard used by athletes. Its’ purpose is to support the jaw which keeps the upper airway open while the patient is sleeping.
Right now there are more than 100 such oral appliances approved by the FDA that are available on the market.
