Vivos is a dental system used to treat sleep disordered breathing including sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is often an issue with the size of the airway. The airway is intimately connected to the mouth. The floor of the nose is also the ceiling of the mouth. One of the treatments for sleep apnea is to expand the airway.
The Vivos system is a removable dental appliance, called the DNA Appliance, that uses your genetic potential to expand your jaw to the correct size. By expanding the mouth, the nose is also expanded, creating a larger airway.
Patients do not need to wear the appliance 24/7 to gain the benefits of growth. The appliance is worn in the late afternoon, evening and throughout the night while you sleep, during the day you don’t wear anything.
There are many benefits to improved breathing during sleep. Many patients report a decrease in the severity of their sleep apnea, more restful sleep, decrease in high blood pressure, decreased levels of inflammation in the body.
At Lasting Impressions, we have been using the DNA appliance since 2010. Dr. Platt was personally trained by Dr. David Singh, who is the creator of the DNA appliance.
We have successfully treated numerous patients of all ages. It works for children, teens and adults and is successful to help them grow their breathing passages to the proper size that genetically they should have grown as an adolescent.
The oldest patient was 80 + years old and our youngest patient was 5-6 years old. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with sleep apnea or if you just want a more restful sleep and better overall health, call our office to schedule your appointment to see if the DNA appliance is right for you.
