The Vivos® Systemfor Sleep Apnea
About Sleep Apnea Treatment in Tewksbury, MA
More than 22 million Americans suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea, a condition studies have shown to be directly correlated to many of today’s common diseases: high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s and dementia, anxiety and chronic fatigue, to name just a few. If left untreated, these serious health conditions will affect your quality of life, shorten your life span or even cause sudden death during sleep.
Obstructive sleep apnea has many signs and symptoms — some are so common we ignore them or even consider them normal:
✔ Frequent sleep interruptions
✔ Chronic fatigue, brain fog
✔ Morning headaches
✔ High blood pressure
✔ Heart burn
✔ Elevated blood sugar
If you suspect that you or someone you love is suffering from sleep apnea or sleep disordered breathing, we may be able to help! Here at Solace Wellness Center, our goal for you is whole-body health. Ultimately, it’s our job to benefit your physical well-being in any way we can, and we believe that one of the first steps in the journey to whole-body health is an effective breathing wellness program.
Here at Solace, we are proud to be certified providers of the The Vivos® System, a multi-disciplinary treatment protocol that may treat your sleep apnea and sleep disordered breathing issues. The Vivos System addresses a common cause of obstructive sleep apnea — maxillary hypoplasia and/or mandibular retrusion — which is, respectively, failure of the upper or lower jaw to develop properly. This condition often results in a compromised upper and lower airway.
The Vivos treatment involves wearing a customized mouth device for some parts during the day and at night for a specified period of time, between 12 to 24 months. The FDA-cleared Vivos device is specially designed — and tailored to the precise anatomical measurements of your upper and lower jaw — to help remodel your airway and improve oxygen flow. Best of all, the Vivos System treats the root cause for sleep apnea, not just the symptoms, providing long-lasting relief without surgery, drugs or downtime.
Benefits of the Vivos System:
✔ Limited treatment time
✔ Comfortable & easy to wear
✔ Potential cosmetic benefits (as the upper and lower jaw develops)
FAQs: The Vivos Sleep Apnea Treatment in Tewksbury, MA at Solace Wellness Center
What exactly is the Vivos System for sleep apnea?
Pneumopedics® is the physiologic enhancement of the upper airway via naturally-occurring and treatment-induced changes over time. The Vivos System incorporates the science of Pneumopedics in its treatment protocols for addressing maxillary hypoplasia and mandibular retrusion, namely a smaller upper and lower jaw. The Vivos System remodels your airway space, improving the oxygen flow that your brain and body needs to rejuvenate while sleeping.
Once your physician has properly diagnosed you with sleep apnea, a specially-trained dentist will design a custom Vivos biomimetic medical device. You will wear your Vivos device, as directed by your dentist, between 12 and 24 months, primarily in the evening and at night while you sleep.
Does a doctor administer the Vivos System?
Yes! The Vivos System involves a thorough and complete diagnosis of your condition by a board-certified sleep physician. Once you are diagnosed, Drs. Elaine Wu and James Wu of Solace who are both certified Vivos Integrated Providers, will custom-design your Vivos biomimetic medical device. Only certified Vivos providers may administer the Vivos treatment.
Is the Vivos System safe and proven?
