Healthcare from Your Dentist’s Chair: Breathe and Sleep Better with the Vivos Method for Jaw Development
Sleep apnea is a chronic illness affecting more than one billion people globally. It increases the risk of comorbidities, including high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, diabetes, dementia, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and other life-threatening diseases. Unlike current standard-of-care interventions, such as lifetime-use of CPAP machines or surgical procedures, patients treated with the Vivos Method typically complete their therapy in 12 to 24 months, and in many cases, do not require further intervention.
