Unlike virtually every other nonsurgical treatment for OSA which require nightly lifetime intervention, studies show that patients undergoing treatment with Vivos doctors have an average treatment time of 18 months.
Our treatment employs a multidisciplinary treatment plan that uses noninvasive, cost-effective oral appliance technology prescribed by trained dentists and medical professionals to treat dentofacial abnormalities and/or mild-to-moderate OSA and snoring. This revolutionary treatment is called The Vivos Method.
Studies have shown that in up to 98 percent of patients with OSA, the sleep disorder is caused by abnormal anatomical features—most notably, an underdeveloped mouth and jaw.
While an underdeveloped jaw may seem like an inconsequential cosmetic issue, the truth is that it could be the root cause of OSA, a serious sleep disorder that is associated with a number of chronic, life-threatening health concerns.
Improper development of the jaws and oral cavity can lead to an undersized airway where the tongue is more prone to fall into the back of the throat, causing the airway to collapse—especially at night. By reshaping and expanding the oral cavity, your airway may also expand, allowing you to both breathe and sleep more deeply.
Just take a look at this example of an adult male patient’s airway before and after Vivos treatment.
