We implement the groundbreaking Vivos system to address and resolve issues related to sleep-disordered breathing. These problems span from snoring to various levels of sleep apnea, often caused by obstructions in the airway created by the tongue or soft throat tissues. Underdeveloped jaws commonly contribute to this compromised airway. Vivos works by ensuring an unobstructed airway for regular breathing and tackles underdeveloped jaws by promoting jaw growth, ultimately enhancing the airway structure.
The treatment involves comfortable oral appliances that are easy to wear and are worn during sleep. These appliances aid in improving breathing while encouraging the natural growth and correct alignment of the mouth, teeth, and jaws. While Vivos is suitable for both children and adults, its benefits are especially notable for children. Addressing underlying developmental issues early with Vivos may potentially negate the necessity for braces and avert numerous future health concerns.
The Vivos system adopts a holistic approach to treatment, focusing on enhancing overall health in addition to managing sleep breathing disorders. The treatment has shown potential in addressing a range of symptoms, including:
- Halted growth
- Obesity, and more.
