Vivos Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, you may consider the Vivos sleep apnea treatment. This treatment is an exciting new option for those who suffer from this potentially dangerous sleep disorder. Sleep apnea occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. This can happen multiple times throughout the night, leading to serious health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
The Vivos sleep apnea treatment is a mouthpiece that is worn during sleep. It is custom-fitted to each individual and gently moves the lower jaw forward to keep the airway open. The treatment is non-invasive and very effective in treating sleep apnea. It is comfortable to wear and is much less expensive than other treatment options, such as CPAP machines.
If you suffer from sleep apnea, the Vivos Sleep Apnea Treatment may be a great option. URBN Dental offers personalized Vivos appliances to help you overcome sleep apnea.
What is the Vivos Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Vivos sleep apnea treatment is a specialized and unique oral appliance therapy for obstructive sleep apnea. This procedure involves wearing a specialized Vivos appliance that applies gentle pressure on the palate to keep your airway open throughout the night so you don’t suffer from snoring and periods of obstructed breathing.
Unlike traditional oral appliances for sleep apnea, the Vivos system gradually changes the positioning of your jaws to address the root cause of sleep apnea. After 18 months of Vivos sleep apnea treatment, you are officially free from obstructive sleep apnea for good. As such, Vivos offers long-lasting relief from snoring and sleep apnea.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that causes pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing starts again with a loud snort or choking sound. When breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into a light sleep. As a result, you don’t get the restful sleep you need to feel alert and energized.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when your throat muscles intermittently relax and block your airway during sleep. The root cause of obstructive sleep apnea is usually traced back to structural concerns with the upper and lower jaws. When the jaws are unformed or positioned incorrectly, they don’t offer your upper palate enough support, leading to a collapsed palate while sleeping, which, in turn, leads to sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea often goes undiagnosed. Many people who have sleep apnea don’t know it. Often, a family member or sleep partner notices the signs, such as loud snoring. Symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Loud snoring
- Pauses in breathing during sleep
- Waking up gasping or choking
- Morning headaches
- Feeling tired during the day
How Does The Vivos Appliance Work? How Does it Treat OSA?
The Vivos mouth appliance treats the root cause of obstructive sleep apnea. The Vivos appliance is a mandibular repositioning device that gradually applies pressure on the lower jawbone, upper jawbone, or both to shift it in the appropriate position to ensure your airway remains open. Over time, the jawbone is repositioned correctly to prevent the throat muscles from blocking the airway in your sleep. The entire treatment takes around 18 months.

Vivos Appliance FAQs
Vivos is one of the most effective treatments for sleep apnea because it gradually opens and expands the jaws to address the root cause of OSA — an unreformed jaw. Instead of simply helping you manage the symptoms, Vivos liberates you from sleep apnea.
You should clean your sleep apnea oral appliance at least once a day. However, it is best to clean it after every time you use it. To clean your sleep apnea oral appliance, remove it from your mouth and brush it with a soft-bristled toothbrush. You can also clean your sleep apnea oral appliance with mild soap and water.
Some insurance companies will cover the cost of a sleep apnea oral appliance, but it depends on the insurance company and the type of policy you have. It’s always best to ask your Vivos providers to check your insurance details.
Vivos is right for you if you have the signs and symptoms of mild to moderate sleep apnea, especially if you don’t want to or can’t undergo CPAP therapy.
