Sleep Disordered Breathing Comorbidities

Sleep disordered breathing including mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea impacts every system in the body.

Existing palliative treatment options are undesirable.

While these treatments can be effective at managing the symptoms of OSA,

they do not correct the underlying problem.

Non-Compliance - The Leading Cause of Poor Treatment Outcomes

“Despite the efficacy of CPAP in reversing sleep apnea, of those studies using the cut point of at least 4 hours per night to define adherence, 29% to 83% of patients were nonadherent.”

The Leading Cause of OSA is Craniofacial Anatomical Deficiencies

Nasal Obstruction

 

Mandibular Retrognathia

 

Maxillary Hypoplasia

 

Obstructed Airway

 

Target and treat the underlying condition.

“In 98% of patients with OSA, the condition is due to abnormal anatomical features of the soft tissues and/or the structures of the maxillomandibular skeleton that cause a disproportionate anatomy of the airway.”

The Vivos System® offers new hope to what has otherwise been a bleak prognosis for patients with OSA.

 

Since 2009, over 12,000 patients around the world have been treated using proprietary Vivos technology.

 

Some doctors claim it has cured their patients.  Over 50 published articles / studies consistently show >50% drop in AHI scores for most patients.

 

Pneumopedics® - A Therapeutic Breakthrough

28cm3

A treatment protocol that targets the underlying cause of sleep apnea.

The Vivos System® works to treat the root cause of OSA by non-surgically remodeling and repositioning the hard and soft tissues that comprise the human airway.

 

The Vivos System® treatment is typically less than $10,000 and is covered by most major health plans.

Vivos DNA Appliance®

Hard and soft tissues of the craniofacial complex can be non-surgically remodeled and enhanced using the proprietary Vivos System® devices and clinical protocols.

 

The following slides exemplify the numerous ways in which the Vivos System® operates to remodel, reposition, and enhance craniofacial tissues.

 

 

 

The Vivos DNA appliance shown is registered as a Class I oral appliance for palatal expansion.

The mRNA appliance, a version of the DNA appliance is FDA cleared as a Class II appliance.

 

The mRNA is cleared to treat mild to moderate sleep apnea, snoring and sleep disorded breathing in adults.

A complete resolution of obstructive sleep apnea.
