What's Really Happening With Our Children

Poor Jaw Development

In the modern world, our children face a wide range of health issues, including ADHD, bedwetting, tonsillitis, hyperactivity, asthma, night terrors, and headaches. This presents a significant challenge for healthcare professionals who may have limited solutions.

Parents, understandably concerned and frustrated, sometimes turn to medications in hopes of easing their children’s discomfort.

However, let’s take a closer look at the underlying factors behind these issues.

The Problem May Not Be What You Think It Is..

Kids Jaws Are Shrinking

The growth of your child’s face and jaw plays a vital role in various aspects of their well-being, including their breathing, dental alignment, and overall appearance.

Modern lifestyle and dietary changes have influenced our genetics, resulting in smaller jaws. Unfortunately, this can pose significant challenges, potentially impacting your child’s breathing, sleep quality, and overall health.

Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB)

The development of our airways is significantly influenced by the size of our jaws, leading to a variety of symptoms and health issues, including:

  • Snoring
  • Teeth Grinding
  • Crowded Crooked Teeth
  • Tongue or Lip Ties
  • Bedwetting
  • ADHD/ADD

 

Dentists play a vital role in addressing sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD), working in close collaboration with medical professionals. These disorders have diverse origins, and the most effective treatments often result from a partnership between dentists and healthcare experts.

Kids Have Sleep Apnea Too

A Compromised Airway

This disruption in sleep quality can have adverse effects on their cognitive functions, memory, and overall health. Regrettably, problems associated with sleep-related breathing issues often go undetected, receive inaccurate diagnoses, or are left untreated. If your child exhibits these symptoms, they may be experiencing sleep-related breathing difficulties.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea, characterized by interrupted breathing during sleep, can impact health throughout one’s life.

Mouth Breathing

Mouth breathing often goes unnoticed, but it can be a less recognized symptom of sleep apnea.

Bedwetting

Bedwetting is a symptom that sometimes flies under the radar, yet it can serve as a lesser-known indicator of underlying airway issues.

ADD/ADHD

ADD/ADHD may have connections to sleep apnea and breathing disorders, sometimes leading to misdiagnosis and inappropriate medication treatments.

Allergies and Asthma

Allergies and asthma have potential links to sleep apnea, which can sometimes lead to misdiagnosis and suboptimal treatment strategies.

Vivos Sleep Apnea

What exactly is the Vivos treatment?

It’s a method using a special oral appliance worn for 12-16 hours, mostly at night, to naturally widen your mouth’s arches and open up your airway for better breathing and sleep. In some cases, Vivos has shown to resolve sleep apnea symptoms.

Can the Vivos treatment cure sleep apnea?

While “cure” is a strong word, Vivos aims to provide a long-term solution by addressing the structural causes of sleep apnea, potentially reducing or eliminating the need for further treatment.

Who is eligible for the Vivos treatment?

The Vivos treatment is suitable for individuals with mild, moderate, and, following recent FDA clearance, even severe sleep apnea.

Can children use the Vivos treatment?

Yes, Vivos can be effective for children with sleep apnea or breathing issues, helping to guide their dental and airway development early on.

How is Vivos different from CPAP or surgery?

Unlike CPAP, which requires nightly use indefinitely, or surgery, which can be invasive, Vivos is a more natural, non-invasive approach aiming for a permanent improvement in airway structure.

How long does the Vivos treatment take?

Typically, it lasts between 12 to 24 months, but the exact duration can vary depending on the individual’s situation.

How often do we wear the device?

For adults about 3-4 hours during the day and while sleeping overnight.

For children about 1-2 hours during the day and while sleeping overnight, these awesome appliances work their magic. They’re like little guides, helping with the natural growth and development of your child’s mouth, jaws, and airways. They do an incredible job of counteracting the negative impacts of modern life on their oral health. It’s all about promoting a healthy future!
