What is VIVOS®?
VIVOS is a scientifically based oral appliance based therapy that addresses the underlying physiological cause of most sleep problems, a narrowed or blocked airway. The concepts of epigenetics and pneumopedics™ serve as the basis of the VIVOS approach which strives to support the field of dentistry in its effort to treat sleep and breathing abnormalities. As a VIVOS dentist, Dr. Handa is able to use advanced techniques when treating sleep apnea, UARS and sleep disorders in adults and children that are non-invasive.
- What is epigenetics?
Epigenetics is the study of natural and environmental factors affecting the expression of genes. VIVOS focuses on the craniofacial genes and is active in studies and research regarding this field and how it relates to airway problems.
- What is pneumopedics™?:
Non-surgical airway remodeling, or pneumopedics is the foundation of VIVOS therapies. The science of pneumopedics enables patients to achieve improved breathing, better sleep and quality of life without surgery.
