What's Happening With Our Children?

Poor Jaw Development

Today’s kids face many health problems like ADHD, bedwetting, tonsillitis, hyperactivity, asthma, night terrors, and headaches. This is tough for doctors with few solutions.

Parents often use medicine to try to help their kids feel better.

But, it’s important to understand what’s really causing these issues.

The Problem May Not Be What You Think It Is..

Our Jaws Are Shrinking

Your child’s jaw and face growth affects their breathing, teeth alignment, and appearance. Proper development is key for easy breathing and a good bite.

Modern lifestyles and diets have led to smaller jaws, which can bring health issues. This affects breathing, sleep quality, and overall health, potentially leading to dental problems and sleep issues.

Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB)

Jaw size greatly affects our airways, leading to issues like:

  • Snoring
  • Teeth Grinding
  • Crowded or Crooked Teeth
  • Tongue or Lip Ties
  • Bedwetting

Dentists are crucial in treating sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD), teaming up with medical experts. Effective treatments often come from this dentist-healthcare professional collaboration.

Do Kids Have Sleep Apnea Too?

A Compromised Airway

Poor sleep quality can harm cognitive functions, memory, and overall health. Sadly, sleep-related breathing problems often go unnoticed, misdiagnosed, or untreated. If your child shows these symptoms, they might have sleep-related breathing issues.

The Vivos Treatment

We Treat The Root Cause

The Vivos system offers a non-surgical solution for underdeveloped jaws using appliances worn during the day and night. These devices gently widen the upper palate.

Rather than just treating sleep apnea symptoms, Vivos uses noninvasive oral appliances prescribed by experts. This method addresses the underlying issues causing sleep apnea, solving structural airway problems. Focusing on the root cause, Vivos provides lasting relief and improves overall health.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea, characterized by interrupted breathing during sleep, can impact health throughout one’s life.

Mouth Breathing

Mouth breathing often goes unnoticed, but it can be a less recognized symptom of sleep apnea.


Bedwetting is a symptom that sometimes flies under the radar, yet it can serve as a lesser-known indicator of underlying airway issues.


ADD/ADHD may have connections to sleep apnea and breathing disorders, sometimes leading to misdiagnosis and inappropriate medication treatments.

Allergies and Asthma

Allergies and asthma have potential links to sleep apnea, which can sometimes lead to misdiagnosis and suboptimal treatment strategies.

More people have sleep apnea than you think

1 in 5 adults have mild OSA
1 in 15 have moderate to severe OSA
9% of middle-aged women and 25% of middle-aged men suffer from OSA

How often do we wear the device?

For adults, for about 3-4 hours during the day and while sleeping overnight.

For children, typically 1-2 hours during the day and during their nighttime sleep.

They serve as guides, supporting natural mouth, jaw, and airway development and countering the negative effects of modern life for a healthier future.

Will it help with my crowded/crooked teeth?

We customize our approach to improve nighttime breathing and overall airway health. Our primary goal is clear: better breathing. As a bonus, our treatment often leads to a beautiful smile, proper tongue posture, and more room for teeth alignment. Crowded teeth can become a thing of the past!

While orthodontic help might still be needed for perfect alignment, our mission is to ensure restful sleep and improved breathing. Better breathing means better sleep, and that’s our ultimate aim.

How long is the treatment?

The treatment typically takes 12-24 months, depending on your age and case severity. Rest assured, our Doctors will set goals and provide an estimated duration as we work towards progress together!

Is the OSA treatment covered by insurance?

In most cases, yes. You can seek reimbursement from your medical insurance company. However, your plan may have coverage limits or exclusions. To get plan-specific details, contact your Medical/Dental insurance provider. They’ll offer coverage specifics and address your questions, empowering you to maximize your insurance benefits.

Should snoring be ignored?

Snoring isn’t just an annoying noise; it can signal a significant underlying issue known as a Sleep Breathing Disorder (SBD). Alarmingly, approximately 42 million Americans grapple with SBDs.

Among these disorders, Obstructive Sleep Apnea stands out as one of the most common. It’s a medical condition characterized by the tongue and soft tissues obstructing the airway, resulting in disrupted airflow to the lungs. Acknowledging the gravity of SBDs is paramount to ensure timely diagnosis and effective treatment.

Do we see children?

Yes, children are our best patients! We recommend that children have their first dental visit around age 2.

What are the benefits of breathing through the nose?

Your nose is truly remarkable in the realm of breathing. It possesses a set of incredible powers that contribute to your overall respiratory health and well-being. These include:

  • Efficient Filtration: Picture the tiny hairs inside your nose as vigilant bouncers at the entrance to your lungs’ exclusive party. Their role is to keep out unwanted guests like dust, allergens, and pollen. Thanks to them, your lungs can enjoy clean, pure air.
  • Expert Moisturizing: Your nose is like a seasoned pro when it comes to adding just the right amount of moisture to the air you breathe. By gently warming and humidifying the incoming air, it ensures your lungs can handle it comfortably and efficiently.
  • Nitric Oxide Magic: Taking a breath through your nose is essentially like giving your blood vessels a high-five. It releases nitric oxide (NO), a remarkable vasodilator. NO works by widening your blood vessels, facilitating better oxygen flow throughout your body. This improved circulation is vital for overall health and vitality.

The next time you take a breath, take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate your nose for its extraordinary capabilities. It tirelessly works behind the scenes, ensuring you breathe like a boss and enjoy optimal respiratory function.
