What is Vivos?
Vivos is a system that helps sleep apnea patients breathe normally while increasing their overall health and well-being. It is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment performed by highly-trained certified dentists.
How do I know if my child is eligible?
Carefully observe your child for any signs of sleep apnea. Symptoms of a compromised airway in children include:
- Restless sleep
- Crowded or crooked teeth
- Aggressive behavior
- Mouth breathing
- Swollen tonsils or adenoids
- Bed wetting
- Trouble in school
Schedule a visit with a doctor who can diagnose your child’s condition. If your child is diagnosed with sleep apnea, speak with your child’s physician and doctor about The Vivos System to get their professional insight and advice.
How does Vivos work?
A custom Vivos biomimetic device will be created for your child. The child will be directed to wear the device while sleeping from anywhere between 12 and 24 months. The dentist will continue to make necessary adjustments while the child continues to use the device.
At the same time, the dentist will work closely with a sleep specialist to monitor your child’s progress during treatment. There should be no need for additional medical attention once the treatment is finished.
