Vivos, a non-surgical solution for sleep apnea and snoring

Address Sleep Apnea without CPAP or Surgery

At Integrative Dental Solutions, our sleep dentists offer the Vivos Method. Vivos is an effective, non-surgical solution for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring. It has provided many people relief without resorting to CPAP or surgical implants.

Vivos isn’t loud like a CPAP or a temporary fix like a traditional oral appliance. It doesn’t involve surgery. Instead, Vivos addresses the root cause of the problem and gradually corrects it, while helping you get a good night’s sleep. It is effective, non-invasive and treatment is temporary. You can expect to wear your Vivos oral appliance between 12 and 24 months, primarily in the evening and at night while you sleep.

If you suffer from sleep disordered breathing, snoring or obstructive sleep apnea, you may be facing a lifetime of nightly CPAP use or invasive surgery. The Vivos method offers new hope.

Contact us today or request an appointment to schedule a personalized sleep apnea or snoring consultation and discover the difference a good night’s sleep can make.

What is Snoring & Sleep Apnea?

Snoring occurs when the muscles of your throat relax, your tongue falls backwards and your throat narrows. As you breathe, the walls of your throat vibrate, leading to the distinctive sound of snoring. The narrower your airway becomes, the greater the vibration and the louder you snore. Sometimes the airway becomes so narrow that airflow is blocked completely, creating a serious condition called sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a chronic disorder in which the airway fully or partially collapses during sleep, blocking the flow of air to the lungs, and causing you stop breathing while sleeping. Eventually, the brain discerns you are not breathing and wakes you up, partially or fully, and often with a loud snort or gasp. The sleeper then falls back asleep and the entire process starts all over again – sometimes repeated hundreds of times per night.

If you have OSA, your body is unable to spend enough time in deep sleep or REM sleep, which is when it performs many essential healing and reparative functions. Without the restoring power of deep, restful, uninterrupted sleep, you feel foggy-headed, irritable, distracted, and your relationships and work performance may suffer. If you snore, your sleeping partner may also suffer. 

How do I know if I have Sleep Apnea?

It may come as a surprise to learn that over 80% of people with mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have no idea they have it. Some symptoms are obvious such as snoring, mouth breathing, excessive daytime drowsiness and observed breathing pauses or gasps during sleep. But other symptoms may seem unrelated such as awaking and feeling confused, morning headaches, changes in concentration and memory, weight gain, depression and anxiety, and chronic pain and fibromyalgia. OSA is also considered a risk factor for high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack.

You may be interested to learn that Vivos therapy has become a widely used and accepted CPAP alternative. If you’ve tried CPAP and are unable to tolerate it, Vivos may be the right treatment option for you. At Integrative Dental Solutions, Dr Shetty is specially trained in this non-invasive approach to addressing sleep disordered breathing.

What to Expect

Is Vivos the Right Sleep Apnea Solution for Me?

If you are looking for a CPAP or surgery alternative and want to learn if the Vivos system is right for you, here is what you can expect. First, you will first have a comprehensive sleep consultation and exam that may include:

  • Preliminary Health Questionnaire & Screening
  • Head + Neck Examination
  • CBCT Scan
  • Intra-oral Photos + Measurements
  • In Home Sleep Screening

After the exam, Dr. Shetty will provide an Airway Intelligence Report™ which will include:

  • Complete Assessment and Evaluation
  • Airway Measurements
  • Treatment Goals
  • Treatment Plan
  • Health Insurance + Financing

Once you are satisfied and ready to move forward, your appliance will be made and treatment will begin. Most patients feel the effects of treatment within the first few days or weeks. During treatment, periodic adjustments to your appliance are made by Dr. Shetty. You will wear your appliance for 10-12 hours per day, mostly while you sleep.

The Vivos system may help you sleep better and enjoy your days without being fatigued or irritable from lack of sleep. For more information, Contact Dr. Supriya K Shetty to schedule a sleep apnea or snoring consultation. Discover the difference a good night’s sleep can make!
