How It Works

Failure of the upper and lower jaw to develop properly is a common cause of obstructive sleep apnea. This condition, called maxillary hypoplasia and/or mandibular retrognathia/retrusion, often results in a compromised upper airway. More than one billion people suffer from mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

The Solution

The Vivos System: An important breakthrough in sleep and airway medicine

The Vivos System is an advanced therapeutic protocol used by highly-trained, independent dentists in cooperation with their medical colleagues. It is a multi-disciplinary treatment protocol that may treat your sleep apnea and sleep disordered breathing issues.

The Science

Pneumopedics® is the physiologic enhancement of the upper airway via naturally-occurring and treatment-induced changes over time. The Vivos System incorporates the science of Pneumopedics® in its treatment protocols for addressing maxillary hypoplasia and mandibular retrusion.

The Benefits

You’ll be amazed at the difference an effective breathing wellness program can have on your life and the lives of your family. It may reduce fatigue and anxiety, increase productivity, lessen the frequency and severity of headaches—the list goes on and on. Not only does the quality of life improve, but an effective breathing wellness program can reduce the risk of dangerous conditions such as hypertension, stroke, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Treatment with The Vivos System

The Vivos System typically begins with a thorough and complete diagnosis of your condition.

Once you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, we will design a custom Vivos biomimetic medical device. You will wear your Vivos device as directed 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. Upon completion of treatment, many patients do not require further intervention.
