Understanding Sleep Apnea

The Jaw Development Connection

Sleep apnea occurs when the airway narrows or closes, causing breathing difficulties during sleep. This problem can begin early, even in infancy. Soft and processed foods influence jaw growth, potentially leading to a smaller jaw and future airway issues.

Moreover, many factors affect how the jaw develops.

Breastfeeding duration, a diet of soft or mushy foods, and the use of a pacifier impact jaw growth. Also, bad oral habits like thumb sucking and tongue thrusting, along with mouth breathing and tied tongues, play a role.

Early treatment yields the best outcomes. Our doctors work on widening kids’ airways during their growth phase.

Kids Have Sleep Apnea Too

A Compromised Airway

This interruption disturbs their sleep, preventing them from getting a good night's rest. As a result, their thinking and memory can be affected the next day, and it may even cause health problems.

Unfortunately, issues related to breathing during sleep often remain unnoticed, are diagnosed incorrectly, or don't receive treatment. If your child displays these signs, they might be experiencing problems with their breathing while sleeping.

The Vivos Treatment

Treating The Root Cause

The Vivos system provides a non-surgical way to fix an underdeveloped jaw, using appliances day and night to widen the upper palate.

It goes beyond treating sleep apnea symptoms by targeting the root problem with noninvasive devices. This method focuses on dentofacial issues causing sleep apnea, improving airway structure for lasting relief and better health.

Sleep Apnea Q&A’s

How many people have sleep apnea?

1 in 5 adults have mild OSA
1 in 15 have moderate to severe OSA
9% of middle-aged women and 25% of middle-aged men suffer from OSA

Should snoring be ignored?

Snoring is not merely a loud and bothersome noise; it can serve as an important indicator of a Sleep Breathing Disorder (SBD) that should not be taken lightly. It is estimated that around 42 million Americans are affected by SBDs.

One of the most prevalent types of SBD is Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a medical condition in which the tongue and soft tissues obstruct the airway, preventing proper airflow into the lungs. Recognizing the potential seriousness of SBDs is crucial for prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

What is sleep apnea's impact on my health?

  • Mild OSA is found in 70% of heart attack patients.
  • Sleep Apnea affects 86% of obese individuals with type 2 Diabetes.
  • Hypertension is present in 43% of patients with mild OSA.
  • Sleep Apnea is experienced by 48% of individuals with type 2 Diabetes.
  • Drowsy driving causes around 100,000 car accidents annually.
  • Individuals with Sleep Apnea are at a 4 times higher risk of stroke.
  • Untreated Sleep Apnea can lead to memory problems, weight gain, impotence, and headaches.
  • Over 20 years, untreated OSA can reduce survivability by 30% or more.
  • Drowsy driving results in 100,000 car accidents, 40,000 injuries, and 1,550 deaths yearly.
  • Approximately 38,000 deaths each year are associated with Sleep Apnea-related cardiovascular problems, including high blood pressure, hypertension, and stroke.

Can sleep apnea be cured?

A sleep doctor would say that sleep apnea usually can’t be fully cured, especially for severe cases. It’s something people manage over time, not get rid of completely.

The Vivos treatment is a newer way to help with sleep apnea. It’s not like the CPAP machine that you use every night. Instead, Vivos works on changing the shape of your mouth and airway slowly. This can make your sleep apnea better or even go away for some people.

It’s a hopeful option for those looking for something other than nightly machines or surgery, offering a chance at long-lasting improvement.

Is sleep apnea treatment covered by insurance?

Many insurance plans cover sleep apnea treatment, including CPAP and oral appliances, but coverage can vary. Check with your provider.
