Are you struggling with loud snoring and persistent fatigue despite a full night’s sleep? You might be dealing with sleep apnea, a potentially serious sleep disorder characterized by intermittent pauses in breathing. There are three main types of sleep apnea:
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): This is the most prevalent form, often caused by anatomical features like an underdeveloped jaw, nasal dysfunction, and dental abnormalities. It’s marked by loud snoring and interrupted sleep with moments of breathlessness, often followed by a snort.
- Central Sleep Apnea: In this form, the brain fails to send proper signals to the muscles responsible for breathing.
- Complex Sleep Apnea (Treatment-Emergent Central Sleep Apnea): This occurs when an individual experiences both OSA and Central Sleep Apnea.
OSA is a significant medical concern, and if left untreated, it can lead to severe health complications.
Research indicates that up to 98% of OSA cases stem from abnormal anatomical features, including an underdeveloped mouth and jaw. These issues may also encompass nasal dysfunction and dental irregularities. Although an underdeveloped jaw might appear as a minor cosmetic concern, it could be the underlying cause of OSA. This sleep disorder is associated with a range of chronic, potentially life-threatening conditions, including cardiovascular diseases, depression, hypersomnia (excessive daytime sleepiness), migraines, headaches, nightmares, bed-wetting, attention disorders, and developmental delays.
At Dentouch Dental, we’re proud to offer the innovative Vivos Method – a revolutionary, multidisciplinary treatment protocol. This approach employs non-surgical, non-invasive, and cost-effective oral appliance technology, administered by trained dentists and medical professionals. The Vivos Method is designed to address dentofacial abnormalities and mild to moderate cases of OSA and snoring.
The benefits of the Vivos Method extend beyond alleviating sleep and breathing disorders. By targeting underdeveloped upper and lower jaws, this personalized treatment plan can mitigate potential health risks associated with these conditions.
