Millions of people, young and old, suffer from conditions known as maxillary hypoplasia and/or mandibular retrognathia/retrusion, where both the upper and lower jaws are underdeveloped. These conditions often result in a compromised upper airway.
Individuals living with maxillary hypoplasia and/or mandibular retrognathia/retrusion may develop breathing difficulties occurring during sleep, often referred to as sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). These difficulties can range from frequent loud snoring to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which causes the individual to regularly stop breathing during sleep as a result of a partial to fully blocked airway.
Vivos Life is devoted to performing clinical research and trials to develop and improve their offerings of therapeutic-grade biomimetic oral appliances for the treatment of midfacial hypoplasia and/or mandibular retrognathia/retrusion.
Warning signs include, but are not limited to:
- Overbite, Underbite or Crooked Teeth
