Dentists play an important role alongside medical professionals when it comes to treating obstructive sleep apnea. If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea or if you experience some of the symptoms associated with a poor night’s sleep—mouth breathing, snoring, lack of energy—this may indicate that you aren’t getting the oxygen you need for your body to function properly.
One of the common ways dentists treat sleep apnea is with an oral appliance worn while sleeping that moves the jaw forward. There are many designs for appliances with different features and capabilities; however, these appliances are only effective while they are being worn. Snoring and other symptoms return when the appliance is not used.
Vivos offers the first of its kind—a dental appliance that permanently corrects sleep apnea and reduces snoring, straightens your teeth, and alleviates symptoms of TMJ disorder. The Vivos appliance can achieve life changing results.
In addition to treating adults with obstructive sleep apnea, Vivos also has a series of oral appliances for children.
Sleep disordered breathing affects 15 out of 16 children and often gets misdiagnosed, eliminating the opportunity for early intervention. If your child suffers from bed wetting, asthma, chronic allergies, aggression, or fatigue they could be living with sleep disordered breathing.
