Comfortable Path to Better Sleep
While the most common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine, it may not be the best fit for your lifestyle. Vivos offers an incredible alternative to treating sleep apnea, and we’re proud to offer these benefits to you!
Book an appointment today to see how the Vivos Method can help improve your sleep.
What Is the Vivos Method?
Obstructive sleep apnea is a common breathing disorder that can cause you to wake dozens of times throughout the night, increasing the risk of several health concerns like high blood pressure and heart disease.
The Vivos Method is an oral appliance that gently pulls your tongue forward while you sleep, opening your throat and nasal airways to help you breathe. By opening these airways, you can sleep more peacefully, reduce snoring, and wake up feeling refreshed.
Vivos appliances are easy to use, making them great for treating sleep apnea patients of all ages.
Is Vivos Right for You?
To learn more about obstructive sleep apnea and how we diagnose it, please visit our Home Sleep Test page for more information.
The Sleep Assessment
Assessing your sleep habits is the first step to determining whether Vivos is right for you and your sleep apnea issues.
We’ll have you wear a SleepImage ring to analyze your sleep quality over a couple of nights. The device then sends the information back to our team so we can determine the next steps for treating your issues.
Creating Your Plan
Once we have your sleeping data, our next step is to create a treatment plan that you’ll follow for 12 to 24 months.
Our goal is that, by the end of your treatment, you will not have to wear a sleep apnea appliance ever again!
Following Your Treatment
Treatments differ based on your needs. We may recommend wearing your Vivos appliance all day long or only at night.
We may encourage changing certain aspects of your lifestyle to help you sleep better and improve your health in the long run, like exercising and eating healthy foods.

OUR GOOGLE REVIEWS
I had an accident that resulted in a cracked tooth and a lot of pain. They saw me the same day I called and came in the next day, on a closed day on a long weekend, to fix it! Great staff ( thank you Cindy and Sherry) and Dr Hakkaarrt was very thorough in her assessment and repair of my injury. She is the best at giving freezing needles that I ever experienced. I would give 6 stars if I could. Thank you to you all for your help.
Dr. Krystal is excellent! I highly recommend her and her team to everyone who is looking to keep their teeth where they should be.
I desperately needed to get out of pain. There are no words to describe how WONDERFUL my experience with Dr. Krystal and her staff! Greeted with respect, dignity and a deep desire to provide the best possible care for her patients and their many, diverse needs. Having neglected myself and my teeth comes the my own challenges and going to the dentist is quite a daunting challenge to say the least. Patience, persistence, and perseverance is what it takes with each individual and Dr. Krystal and her staff come through with flying colors! Alway’s warm and welcoming and not satisfied until their patient is happy with whatever work may have been needed! My gratitude for this dentist and her staff goes beyond the stars! There is no other dentist I would go to or recommend! When you find the best, you keep it!
