At Respira, we're proud to offer Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) with Vivos appliances. These minimally invasive oral appliances are worn overnight while you sleep.
In many cases, sleep apnea and other airway issues stem from underdeveloped mouth and throat structures. By stimulating your natural genetic systems, we can help your body finish this development and provide the relief you need to sleep soundly through the night.
The Vivos Daytime Nighttime Appliance, or DNA system, is designed to gently reposition your jaw and open your airway. Over time, this will help reduce snoring and other symptoms of sleep apnea. You'll only need to wear the device while you sleep, and it's customized just for you to ensure maximum comfort.
The Vivos Mandibular Repositioning - Nighttime Appliance (mRNA) subtly shifts your lower jaw forward, lifting extra tissue to keep your airway unobstructed overnight. By wearing the appliance while you sleep, your jaw structure will continue to develop, potentially eliminating snoring and other sleep apnea symptoms.
Best of all, you may not need to wear this appliance permanently. In many cases, patients who wear the Vivos mRNA appliance are eventually able to sleep through the night unassisted.
The Vivos DNA appliance system transmits light forces in intermittent intervals to your teeth. This stimulates growth in your body and stem cells to gently expand the structures of your mouth, moving your lower jaw forward into a natural position.
This helps to increase the size of your airway, so it won't be blocked as easily while you're asleep. If the treatment is successful, you'll eventually be able to breathe normally without an appliance throughout the night.
