The Vivos® DNA appliance, also referred to as the Vivos® DNA/mRNA appliance, is one of the most revolutionary innovations in oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea. Vivos® Therapeutics, Inc. is known as a leader in the breathing wellness movement. The organization has spent many years focusing on creating advanced treatments for patients affected by obstructive sleep apnea and sleep-related breathing disorders. The team here at Fulbright Cosmetic & Reconstructive Dentistry is excited to offer this unique treatment option to help individuals suffering from sleep apnea and snoring. For many patients, Vivos® appliance therapy offers a non-surgical way to address these conditions while minimizing the necessity of CPAP machines for effective relief.
What Is Vivos® DNA/mRNA Appliance Therapy?
Vivos® DNA/mRNA Appliance Therapy is a treatment program that utilizes a combination of the company’s FDA-approved DNA/mRNA oral appliance along with a collaborative approach between the dentist who prescribes it and their colleagues in the medical field. This two-pronged approach is designed to focus on eradicating the cause of the patient’s sleep-disordered breathing condition, rather than just treating the symptoms.
What Are the Benefits of the Vivos® System
One of the most prominent benefits of Vivos® DNA/mRNA Appliance Therapy is its ability to help individuals who suffer from mild to moderate degrees of sleep apnea increase the chance of resolving the problem without the need for continued reliance on CPAP machines or other sleep apnea therapies in the future. Additionally, the Vivos® System offers a non-surgical and virtually painless solution to sleep apnea, and is even capable of reducing or potentially completely eliminating snoring. This therapy may also benefit patients who suffer from TMJ Disorder, bruxism (teeth grinding/clenching), and other conditions.
What Is the Vivos® Treatment Like?
The first step of the Vivos® treatment process is the sleep apnea diagnosis by a physician, who can then collaborate on the therapy protocol with our dentist. This comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach—combining the expertise of both medical and dental professionals with advanced technology and Vivos® technicians—is an important part of the Vivos® treatment program and helps increase the potential for results that successfully address the root cause of the condition. The customized Vivos® DNA oral appliance applies the sciences of Craniofacial Epigenetics and Pneumopedics®, ultimately helping to “remodel” the airway without surgical intervention and treat the actual cause of the airway obstruction. The therapy is essentially designed to provide patients with a healthier and more restful night’s sleep while reducing the possibility that lifetime CPAP therapy or other long-term sleep apnea treatments will be necessary.
Members of our team here at Fulbright Cosmetic & Reconstructive Dentistry have undergone extensive training that has allowed us to collaborate with the Vivos® organization and offer this advanced treatment program to our patients. We will be happy to meet with you in a consultation to determine whether the Vivos® System may be an ideal solution for your needs.
What Is the Cost of Vivos® Treatment?
The cost of Vivos® sleep apnea treatment often varies from patient to patient depending on the sleep apnea/snoring conditions they are experiencing and other factors. Once our team has been able to assess your concerns and create a customized treatment plan, we can provide an estimate of the total cost. At Fulbright Cosmetic and Reconstructive Dentistry, we offer unique financing options and accept a variety of convenient payment methods that can help patients bring treatment into their budget. We will also be happy to discuss whether insurance coverage is available for your Vivos® treatment.
