Sleep apnea is a dangerous condition that is associated with loud snoring, short or stagnant breathing, and “snorting” noises that a person makes while sleeping.
Sleep apnea is linked to several serious medical conditions such as:
Because sleep apnea can have such a dangerous impact on your health, Dr. Akraa has found the most effective way to treat sleep apnea patients at her Cute Smile dental practice in Tarzana, CA.
Introducing… Vivos System
The Vivos System is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option designed to restore normal breathing and improve the overall health and wellness of sleep apnea patients.
The truth is CPAP machines and standard oral appliances only address the symptoms of sleep apnea. But the Daytime-Nighttime Appliance (DNA) system from Vivos corrects the real underlying issue of airway obstruction. The appliance works to expand the patient’s palate, creating more room in the mouth and opening the airway for you to breathe easier at night.
Why Use Vivos?
Dr. Akraa uses Vivos systems as a treatment option for sleep apnea, snoring and TMJ disorders. Other advantages include:
The DNA appliance is worn in the evening after you eat and while you sleep, for a total of 10 to 12 hours per day. By slowly expanding the size of the patient’s jaw, the DNA appliance can eliminate sleep apnea symptoms.
