Introducing the Vivos System

The Single Biggest Breakthrough in the Treatment of Sleep Apnea Since CPAP

“In 98% of patients with OSAS, the condition is due to abnormal anatomical features of the soft tissues and/or the structures of the maxillomandibular skeleton that cause a 'disproportionate anatomy' of the airway.”

Your sleep apnea may be the result of an underdeveloped jaw or narrow dental arches. If so, Vivos could be the solution for finally getting the good night’s rest you deserve.

At Santa Fe Dental, we offer the Vivos system of craniofacial development for the treatment of mild-to-moderate sleep apnea, snoring, and sleep-disordered breathing, as well as jaw joint-related disorders using FDA-cleared Oral Appliance Therapy. This non-invasive treatment option offers remarkable success for patients who experience troubled sleep due to anatomical issues that narrow the airway to impede breathing.

Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders?

A common sleep disorder, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), occurs when a patient’s airway becomes blocked while asleep, thereby preventing the brain from receiving enough oxygen. Patients who experience OSA have a higher risk of developing a range of chronic health problems that include hypertension, diabetes, depression, and cardiovascular disease.

Get the quality night's rest you deserve. With the Vivos System, Dr. Hansen has 10+ years of experience offering patients a permanent*, non-invasive solution for mild-to-moderate sleep apnea, snoring, and sleep-disordered breathing.

Don't Underestimate the True Value of a Good Night's Sleep

A recent Gallup Poll revealed that, on average, Americans sleep 2 hours less a night than they did 40 years ago.

Sleep Apnea's Impact on Adult Health

You may suffer from a dangerous, life-threatening condition and not even realize you have a problem.

As the first dentist in the state of Oklahoma to work with the Vivos system, Dr. Hansen recognizes and understands the connection between our oral health and our overall health.

The mouth acts like a mirror that reflects our health as a whole. By treating the mouth and underlying support structures, our team at Santa Fe Dental can help treat patients dealing with mild-to-moderate sleep apnea. 

“More than 22 million Americans suffer from mild-to-moderate sleep apnea.”

A common sleep disorder, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causes a temporary obstruction, or closing off, of the patient’s airway, thereby preventing the brain from receiving enough oxygen during sleep. Studies have shown that the stress and strain placed on the body by OSA can increase a patient’s risk for high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other serious health problems. Patients with OSA also experience daily issues that include trouble focusing, daytime drowsiness, and short-term memory loss.

Sleep Apnea's Impact on Children's Health

Does your child struggle with ADD/ADHD, bedwetting, chronic allergies, trouble focusing at school, irritability, persistent headaches, restless sleep, snoring, aggressive behavior, or daytime drowsiness?

If you’ve answered yes to any or all of these conditions, the underlying issue causing these problems may not be what you think! Contact the team at Santa Fe Dental for a free consultation.

“Santa Fe Dental is working with children's sleep-disordered breathing by using a system of orthodontic appliances and therapies to take advantage of the child's natural growth and direct it into an ideal size, shape and position of the jaws to ensure the best function of jaws, joints and airway throughout life.”

When a child has an underdeveloped upper and/or lower jaw, it could impact the development of their airway. Children with this condition may struggle with other health issues throughout their lifetime. The relief your child has been longing for could be just a phone call away.
