An important breakthrough in sleep and airway medicine
More than one billion people suffer from mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea. The Vivos System is an advanced therapeutic protocol used by highly-trained, independent dentists in cooperation with their medical colleagues.
More than 80% of people who suffer from the effects of mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea are completely unaware. There are variety of symptoms which may indicate you suffer from interrupted sleep. Obvious signs include mouth breathing, snoring, gasping episodes and daytime drowsiness. Not so obvious signs include morning headaches, chronic depression and anxiety, chronic pain and fibromyalgia. Left untreated, OSA can lead to a wide variety of health risks.
Mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea is often the result of underdeveloped upper and lower jaws. Today more than 80% of adults have orthodontic intervention to correct crooked or crowded teeth and a large majority have had their wisdom teeth extracted because their jaws fail to properly develop. Underdeveloped jaws can create an obstruction in the airway. Why do so many people have underdeveloped jaws?
What is The Vivos System?
The Vivos System is an advanced therapeutic protocol which combines the use of oral appliance technology developed by Vivos and prescribed by specially-trained independent dentists in cooperation with their medical colleagues.
The Vivos System is indicated for use to treat mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea, snoring and sleep disordered breathing in adults.
Additionally, Vivos has designed a series of Class I medical devices for tooth positioning and palatal expansion for pediatric patients to promote proper growth and development.
The Vivos System offers an all-natural, non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical, and pain free approach.
The Vivos System typically begins with a thorough and complete diagnosis of your condition by a qualified medical doctor working in close collaboration with a specially-trained independent dentist.
Once a physician has diagnosed sleep apnea, your dentist will design a custom Vivos biomimetic medical device.
You will wear your Vivos device, as directed by your doctor, between 12 and 24 months, primarily in the evening and at night while you sleep.
Most patients feel the effects of treatment within the first few days or weeks. During treatment, periodic adjustments to your appliance are made by your treating dentist, who often works in close collaboration with a medical sleep specialist.
Upon completion of treatment, many patients do not require further intervention.
During your initial consultation with your healthcare team, you will undergo a variety of diagnostic procedures.
It is important to work with your multidisciplinary healthcare team to arrive at an accurate diagnosis.
Once you have completed diagnostic procedures and required tests, your healthcare team will compile your Airway Intelligence Report
Most treatment plans include lots of healthy sleep and good nutrition for a period of between twelve and twenty-four months. You are unique and your custom treatment plan will be tailored to your particular condition.
