One thing Weisfogel has noted about sleep apnea is that it tends to affect a lot of people who’ve gained weight and haven’t been dieting or exercising properly. He notes that having a large neck or usually clogged airways contributes to sleep apnea and the disorder is not only present in adults. Younger children and teens can also be vulnerable to sleep apnea. Weisfogel has also been studying oral appliances and how they can help a patient breathe without obstruction and the newer mouthpieces are designed with maximum comfort in mind. Weisfogel shares his knowledge of sleep with many physicians and sleep dentists around the world and has figured out how to market his new clinic to the mainstream healthcare industry and his Website.
