The Importance of Quality Sleep
Quality sleep is crucial for maintaining optimal health and well-being. Unfortunately, many individuals suffer from sleep-related disorders that can significantly impact their daily lives. These disorders, such as sleep apnea, snoring, and TMJ disorders, can lead to daytime fatigue, decreased cognitive function, and even more severe health issues if left untreated.
What are Vivos Appliances?
Vivos appliances are innovative oral devices that can effectively treat various sleep-related disorders. They are custom-made for each patient and work by repositioning and remodeling the oral cavity to enhance the airway. By improving the airflow during sleep, Vivos appliances help alleviate snoring, sleep apnea, and other related issues.
How Do Vivos Appliances Work?
Vivos appliances work by gently stimulating the natural growth and development of the oral cavity. They are designed to promote the expansion of the upper and lower jaws, which can lead to an increase in the size of the airway. This expansion helps to reduce airway resistance and improve breathing during sleep, ultimately enhancing the quality of your rest.
