Our Team at Neuvo Wellness has over a decade of experience treating a variety of sleep, dental, and TMJ services.
Alternative to Braces
Myofunctional – The Natural Way to a Beautiful Smile
75% of kids today are already showing signs of teeth misalignment, crowded teeth, and incorrect facial development.
Why does this happen: Mouth breathing, incorrect tongue position, and incorrect swallowing activity.
Early treatment can prevent the need for braces later on or relapse after braces. 70% of the growth of your child’s face and jaw occurs between ages 2-5 years. Don’t wait until they are 12-14 years old. We can screen them now and prevent bad habits from developing such as thumb sucking, prolonged pacifier use, bottle feeding, tongue thrusting, and mouth breathing. These habits cause the jaws to incorrectly develop which leads to crowding of the teeth, TMJ pain, and possible sleep apnea.
The Vivos Appliance System can correct these bad habits. By correcting these habits, we may be able to prevent TMJ and Sleep Apnea.
Tongue or Lip Tied?
Support your child from the very beginning. If your baby was born with a lip or tongue tie, it can affect every aspect of their overall health. Lip or tongue ties can interfere with nursing and eating, causing nutritional issues. As your child develops, these problems can cause difficulties with speech as well. We use a laser to release the lip or tongue tie. This procedure is called a frenectomy, one of our well known services.
Some babies can have ties and not be symptomatic. To know if the ties are a problem we ask two major questions:
- Is the baby getting enough to eat?
- Is nursing comfortable for the mother?
Ask about procedures for children and adults as well to help with speech difficulties and improper swallow patterns. It’s never too late to have this fixed and recovery time is just a few days.
TMJ / Jaw Pain
Do you have any of these symptoms?
- Jaw Pain
- Jaw Locking, clicking, or popping
- Head or Face Pain
- Ear Congestion or Ringing
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, the good news is they are often very treatable. The bad news is that not everyone knows how to treat it in an effective way. Our team at Neuvo has extensive experience in finding the root cause and addressing the sources of craniofacial pain.
We offer a comprehensive exam which includes a 3D scan with our i-CAT machine. Once the problem is identified we provide a treatment plan that will help you heal.
Sleep Apnea & Snoring
People with Sleep Apnea often snore, gasp, stop breathing, and have interrupted sleep patterns. As a result, they can experience daytime drowsiness, fatigue, foggy minds, to name just a few. While Sleep Apnea and snoring are serious disorders that can worsen many health conditions, the Vivos Appliance System represents a breakthrough treatment proven to naturally remodel, reposition, and redevelop the anatomy that surrounds the human airway.
Patients who undergo Vivos Appliance therapy often report a noticeable improvement in facial symmetry and aesthetics as their Sleep Apnea symptoms dissipate. Also, many patients with a history of headaches and pain from TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) often find lasting relief.
Many people are not able to use a CPAP machine to treat Sleep Apnea because they are uncomfortable, the air pressure is too high, or the tongue is still blocking their airway. This is usually called CPAP intolerance. In addition to the Vivos Appliance System, we also have other oral appliances to treat Sleep Apnea that can be more comfortable, and easier to travel with, that may be an alternative to CPAP machines for you.
Is Snoring a Concern in Your Life?
If you are not waking refreshed in the morning or your bed partner is kicking you out of the bedroom because you snore, let us help. We can perform laser treatment that tones and lifts the upper soft palate and eliminates snoring sounds. The procedure can be done in 4 simple appointments over an 8 week period.
Research shows snoring is a contributing factor in the following medical conditions:
- Cardiovascular diseases such as Hypertension
- Sleepiness and Fatigue During the Day
- Morning Headaches
- Impotence in Men – Erectile Dysfunction
- Depression and Anxiety
