Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment

Your Sleep Apnea may be the result of an obstruction in the airway caused by narrow dental arches and/or an underdeveloped jaw.

You can finally breathe a literal sigh of relief! Dr. Christensen is now offering a new hope for a possible lasting solution for the millions of people who suffer from mild-to-moderate sleep apnea, snoring, and sleep-disordered breathing. *(Individual results may vary)

THE CAUSE
Failure of the upper and lower jaw to develop properly is a common cause of obstructive sleep apnea. This condition, called maxillary hypoplasia and/or mandibular retrognathia/retrusion, often results in a compromised upper airway.

THE SIGNS
Obstructive sleep apnea has many signs and symptoms—some are so common we ignore them or even consider them normal. The following are a few of the most common signs that you or someone you love is suffering from sleep apnea:

  • Snoring
  • Frequent sleep interruptions
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Morning headaches
  • High blood pressure

THE SOLUTION
The Vivos System is a multi-disciplinary treatment protocol that may treat your sleep apnea and sleep disordered breathing issues. The treatment, which averages 12-24 months in duration, is non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical.

THE SCIENCE
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.

THE BENEFITS
Sleep apnea affects every aspect of our lives. You’ll be amazed at the difference an effective breathing wellness program can have on your life and the lives of your family. It may reduce fatigue and anxiety, increase productivity, lessen the frequency and
severity of headaches—the list goes on and on. Not only does the quality of life improve, but an effective breathing wellness program can reduce the risk of dangerous conditions such as hypertension, stroke, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.
