Did you know that Dr. Lawrence is one of the very first dentists in the metroplex to offer the VIVOS Appliance?
VIVOS is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option for the treatment of mild to moderate sleep apnea, snoring, and sleep-disordered breathing.
“100% of American’s [are] directly or indirectly affected by snoring and sleep apnea.”
We are happy to work with people of all ages who have breathing-related sleep issues. These therapies and oral orthodontic appliances work hard to reshape the structure of the patient's jaw. By correctly reshaping the jaw, the patient's airway is able to expand, allowing for better breathing...and better sleep!
We provide a long-term SOLUTION to these problems.
ADD/ADHD, allergies, snoring, irritability, night terrors, behavioral issues, delayed growth, and crowded teeth.
All of these health issues could potentially all be linked to one root cause – Sleep Apnea! Contact us today and sign up for a consultation!
