Unlocking the Power of Vivos: A Non-Surgical Path to Improved Health
If you were born with or have been battling restricted airways, small jaws, crowded teeth, obstructive sleep apnea, or temporomandibular joint pain, you may be wondering if there's a non-surgical solution that can offer relief. The answer is Vivos, an innovative treatment option that holds the potential to transform your life. At Encompass Dental and Wellness, we're excited to introduce you to the remarkable world of Vivos and its numerous benefits.
What is Vivos?
Vivos is a non-surgical alternative designed to help adults dealing with a range of issues, including limited airways, narrow jaws, dental crowding, obstructive sleep apnea, and temporomandibular joint pain. This revolutionary approach harnesses the body's own regenerative capabilities to stimulate the growth of the upper jaw and increase the size of the airway behind the soft palate and tongue.
The Vivos Appliance: A Key Player in Your Journey
The heart of Vivos lies in the Vivos appliance, which plays a pivotal role in expanding the upper jaw and improving your airway. Worn for 14 to 16 hours daily over 12 to 18 months, the appliance has yielded incredible results. Patients who have endured chronic headaches, joint pain, and restless nights have experienced complete resolution of their issues. In fact, the DNA appliance, which is part of the Vivos system, recently earned FDA approval for its ability to promote facial development and treat obstructive sleep apnea.
A Solution for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea is often linked to poor jaw development, and the Vivos System seeks to address both the source of the condition and its symptoms. By custom-fitting an oral device worn throughout the day and night, Vivos gently expands the palate, creating more room in the mouth. Additionally, it helps train the lower jaw to maintain an optimal position during sleep.
Which Conditions Can Vivos Treat?
The Vivos System is primarily designed to treat obstructive sleep apnea without the need for surgery or the permanent use of a CPAP machine. However, this treatment option can also provide relief for secondary issues such as chronic headaches, facial pain, snoring, and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
Benefits of Vivos Treatment
Vivos offers numerous benefits that set it apart from other obstructive sleep apnea treatments. The completion of this therapeutic process leads to permanent changes in oral structures, potentially eliminating the need for future treatments. Here are some of the benefits you can expect:
Non-invasive and non-surgical approach to reducing obstructive sleep apnea.
Reduction or elimination of migraines and headaches.
Improved occlusion and reduced traumatic tooth contact, preventing wear, fractures, and broken teeth.
Relief from TMJ fatigue and pain.
Increased nasal passage volume for easier breathing and fewer sinus infections and allergies.
Reduced or eliminated snoring.
Reduction in chronic anxiety and reduced reliance on anxiety medications.
The treatment timeline is approximately 12 to 18 months.
Successful Vivos treatment can reduce or even eliminate the need for other OSA treatments.
The effects of Vivos are permanent.
Painless oral devices support your anatomy.
Vivos is a surgery and drug-free option, minimizing potential interactions or post-surgical complications.
What to Expect with Your Vivos Treatment
Vivos has a strong track record of success. Clinical data submitted to the FDA demonstrated remarkable improvements:
28% of patients experienced resolution of OSA.
63% of patients improved by at least one AHI classification.
86% of patients saw an increase in airway size.
97% of patients achieved a wider palate, allowing for proper tongue positioning and airway obstruction prevention.
At Encompass Dental and Wellness, we've witnessed firsthand how, in combination with lifestyle changes, nasal passage improvement, myofunctional therapy, and laser soft palate therapy, Vivos can non-surgically remodel airways to eliminate apnea in many patients.
Vivos is more than a treatment; it's a transformation. Embrace the power of Vivos at Encompass Dental and Wellness and embark on a journey towards a healthier, more vibrant you. Say goodbye to sleep challenges and hello to a life of improved breathing, profound sleep, and lasting wellness.
