Sleep Medicine - Torrington, CT

Breathe Easy with Vivos®

It is estimated that 1 out of 5 people suffer from sleep apnea and that up to 80% or more of sleep apnea cases are undiagnosed and untreated.

Do You Have Sleep Apnea?

Snoring and even mild-to-moderate sleep apnea is NOT normal, and it is unheard. In fact, it can be downright dangerous. A pervasive, potentially serious condition which affects millions of people around the world, sleep apnea is often recognizable, but sometimes the warning signs go undetected.

The Vivos® DNA Appliance System is a proprietary set of oral appliances that incorporate a patented technology that can remodel and restore the human airway to a more normal state. Upon successful completion of Vivos treatment, our patients with sleep apnea in Torrington, CT often report no further need for other traditional ongoing nightly treatments. A breakthrough in modern dentistry and medicine, Dr. Bola Lawal-Mooney and our professional dental team are some of the first in our area to invest in extensive Vivos training to ensure we help patients breathe easy and live a complete and healthy life.​

  • Sleep Apnea Signs & Symptoms

Snoring can be a problem for both children and adults. Although it may be perceived as a small nuisance or inconvenience, disrupted sleep is a problem that should be addressed right away. The Vivos System addresses the primary underlying condition for many people who snore.

Sleep apnea leads to shallow and interrupted breathing, causing patients to move out of deep sleep, thus disrupting the overall quality of your sleep. Vivos is your pathway to a healthier, more vibrant life.

Normal breathing is silent breathing through your nose. It is quiet and effortless. It allows your body to go into normal deep, restorative sleep, and you wake up refreshed and ready to take on each new day. Snoring and sleep apnea are not normal breathing patterns, and they are not healthy.

Normal breathing is vital for living a vibrant, happy life. Unfortunately, millions around the world simply can’t breathe normally–especially at night. Many common illnesses and diseases can result from interrupted or abnormal breathing during sleep. If you or someone you love suffers from any of these conditions, come and visit us at Litchfield Hills Family Dental Implant,  Laser and Sleep Medicine Center to speak with our esteemed Torrington, CT dentist to learn more about the Vivos System.

The Breakthrough Vivos System

The most common kind of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). One of the leading causes of this condition is the narrowing and obstruction of the airway that makes it possible to breathe normally during sleep. The Vivos System works to enlarge and readjust a compromised airway so that you can breathe more easily while sleeping.

Correcting problems within the airway may also help to eliminate many health conditions while restoring you to a life full of energy, optimism, and joy. The Vivos System is a non-invasive, virtually pain-free approach.

How does the Vivos System Work?

STEP 1: In-Depth Evaluation

Our journey together begins with a thorough and personalized evaluation. Our dentist and airway specialist, Dr. Bola Lawal-Mooney, will assess your airway and facial structure using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, such as X-rays and scans. This critical step allows her to understand your unique needs and create a tailored treatment plan for you.

STEP 2: Airway Intelligence Report

Once the initial evaluation is complete, Dr. Bola Lawal-Mooney will compile an Airway Intelligence Report—a comprehensive document detailing the results of your exam, precise airway measurements, and your personalized treatment plan. As a Vivos-trained dentist, Dr. Bola Lawal-Mooney will skillfully utilize the insights to ensure the precise fitting and adjustments of your custom-made Vivos appliance.

STEP 3: Customized Oral Appliance

With your evaluation complete, we move on to crafting a custom-made Vivos appliance designed exclusively for you. This oral appliance is a key component of the Vivos System. It is engineered to fit comfortably into your mouth, gently aiding in the expansion and alignment of your jaws, thereby enhancing your airway size.

As a key component of the Vivos System, this oral appliance sets the stage for transformative results. Patients often experience positive effects within days of starting the Vivos System. The benefits are tangible and empowering, inspiring you to embrace each day with renewed energy and vitality.

STEP 4: Gradual Adjustment

As you start wearing your Vivos appliance during sleep, you’ll experience a gradual and gentle adjustment process. The device encourages natural craniofacial growth, allowing your airway to open up and reducing obstructions that may cause breathing difficulties and disruptions in your sleep.

Throughout your treatment journey, Dr. Bola Lawal-Mooney will work closely with your primary physician. This collaborative effort ensures seamless adjustments and comprehensive care, guaranteeing that you receive the support you need for lasting improvements in your airway and overall well-being.

STEP 5: Monitoring Progress

Throughout your treatment, we’ll be right beside you, closely monitoring your progress. Regular follow-up visits allow us to make any necessary adjustments to ensure the Vivos System continues to work optimally for your specific needs.

STEP 6: Empowering Natural Healing

By promoting the natural development of your craniofacial structures, the Vivos System empowers your body to heal and optimize its airway function. As your airway opens and your sleep improves, you’ll experience the transformative benefits of better breathing and more restful nights.

Vivos Can Help Your Children Too

When a child has an underdeveloped upper and/or lower jaw, the airway could be impacted, and the child may struggle with other health issues during their lifetime. Dr. Lawal-Mooney is able to help children who struggle to breathe when they sleep by using the Vivos System. This system of oral appliance therapies can help the upper and lower jaws develop and reshape the oral cavity fully. As these areas develop more fully, your child’s airway may widen and expand, allowing him or her to breathe better, and some of these symptoms may disappear. When children can breathe properly, they can begin to grow, learn, and blossom into their full potential. If your child has one or more of the symptoms below call us today at Litchfield Hills Family Dental Implant, Laser and Sleep Medicine for a free evaluation by Dr. Mooney!
