(Including VIVOS DNA/mRNA devices) The best sleep apnea treatment, as well as other facial/jaw underdevelopment issues. We are able to use specialized orthotic mouth devices that can help correct the facial anatomical issues that lead to sleep apnea, snoring, and other airway and breathing disorders. This is a non-surgical option that has the potential to eliminate the need for permanent reliance on CPAP or sleep apnea mouth appliances.
These are uniquely designed mouthguard type orthotics used in children. We are all genetically programmed to have room for all our teeth without crowding. Due to many cultural and nutritional traditions our jaws and airways tend to become underdeveloped. The result is restricted airways, crowded and crooked teeth, underdeveloped facial features, etc. These problems can be corrected if addressed early on by these guides and help get each child’s development back on track. In addition, many behavioral issues, bedwetting, ADD/ADHD, chronic allergies, and the need for future orthodontics (braces) can be eliminated when there is proper airway and facial development using VIVOS Guides.
Mandibular Advancement Device
This is a great option for those with sleep apnea unable to use a more permanent pneumopedic® orthotic solution or looking for a CPAP alternative. While these devices do not correct the cause of sleep apnea, they are as effective, or in some cases more effective, than a CPAP machine at relieving the symptoms of sleep apnea. This is a device to be worn each night to decrease the risk of sleep apnea events and snoring.
TMJ and Pain Therapy
Chronic TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and pain afflict far too many. Headaches can be frustrating and debilitating. We find ways to help reduce pain and inflammation, restore function, and eliminate headaches and jaw pain, through our customized TMJ rehabilitation plans. We help you get your smile back.
We are also able to help treat more mild airway cases through various protocols and treatments to improve nasal breathing and lung capacity.
