How a Single Device Can Treat Your Sleep Apnea, TMJ, and Dental Misalignment

Make An Appointment

Sleep apnea happens when the upper airway muscles relax while sleeping, preventing you from getting enough air. If you have sleep apnea, you may suffer from interrupted sleep and regularly wake up feeling tired.

What’s more, sleep apnea is a severe cardiovascular health hazard. Individuals with untreated sleep apnea have twice the likelihood of experiencing a heart attack than those without sleep apnea.

There are two types of sleep apnea. When the brain fails to send signals to the body to maintain breathing, it is called central sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea appears due to physical issues, such as the jaw relaxing and retracting during sleep, causing the tongue to block the airway.

Obstructive sleep apnea often goes hand-in-hand with structural issues of the face and jaw, like misaligned teeth and temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ causes pain in the jaw joint and can make chewing, yawning, and talking uncomfortable.

If you have obstructive sleep apnea, TMJ disorder, and crooked teeth, you might think that fixing all your problems will require extensive oral surgery, inconvenient devices, or pricey orthodontics.

Luckily, there is a simple way to address all three issues at once: the Vivos® sleep apnea solution.
