SLEEP APPLIANCE & LASER THERAPY for ADULTS
Do you know someone who is struggling with any of these conditions? They could all be linked to one root cause – Underdeveloped Jaws and a Compromised Airway!
According to the 2006 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, Sleep Disorders and Sleep Deprivation: An Unmet Public Health Problem, found the cumulative effects of sleep loss and sleep disorders represent an unrecognized public health problem and have been associated with a wide range of
negative health consequences, including hypertension, diabetes, depression, heart attack, stroke, and at-risk behaviors such as alcohol and drug abuse. * www.sleepapnea.org (American Sleep Apnea Association)
Normal breathing is silent breathing through your nose. It is quiet and effortless. It allows our bodies to go into normal deep, restorative sleep, and to awake refreshed and ready to take on each new day. Snoring and sleep apnea are not normal breathing patterns.
Normal breathing is vital for living a vibrant happy life. Unfortunately, millions around the world simply can't breathe normally - especially at night. Poor sleep can affect an individual’s mood, behavior, vitality and energy.
When a child has an underdeveloped upper and/or lower jaw, the airway could be impacted, and the child may struggle with other health issues during their lifetime.
Dr. Evie Sabet is now treating people of all ages with a proprietary, non-invasive, non- surgical treatment option for the treatment of mild to moderate sleep apnea, snoring and sleep disordered breathing called Vivos. Your Sleep Apnea may be the result of an obstruction in the airway caused by narrow dental arches and/or an underdeveloped jaw. These treatments may help the upper and lower jaws to fully develop and reshape the oral cavity. As these areas develop more fully, the airway may widen and expand, making it easier to breathe better and some of these symptoms may disappear.
Vivos offers an appliance system and protocol that can potentially treat the underlying problem of the small maxilla while also including the mandibular advancing properties of the MADs. Our Revolutionary appliance technology, by incorporating our patented 3D axial springs and other design elements, evokes a specific and targeted epigenetic response that can remodel and enhance the bone and the airway. These biomimetic oral appliances allow for a treatment pathway that can potentially provide an endpoint where no further intervention is required. In addition, it creates the conditions necessary to greatly improve joint position and function.
Dr. Sabet also offers a minimally invasive laser treatment that reduces or stops snoring and has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase can reduce and attenuate snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of snoring. A full course of NightLase consists of three separate treatment sessions over a two month period. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, and the therapy can be repeated.
Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way to regain a good night's rest!
“In 98% of patients with OSAS, the condition is due to abnormal anatomical features of the soft tissues and/or the structures of the maxillomandibular skeleton that cause a “disproportionate anatomy” of the airway.”
