For a dentist, there is more to patient care than just fixing teeth. Although we may be working largely on your mouth, issues in this area can affect your whole body. We want to help you to be as healthy as you can be, and we believe that a good first step is an effective breathing wellness program.

Dr. Jason Harvey has regularly treated people of all ages in Edmonton and the surrounding area for mild to moderate sleep apnea and sleep-disordered breathing. These conditions may be a result of an obstructed airway caused by narrow dental arches and/or an underdeveloped jaw. While there is a possibility that it goes undetected in adults, children are especially vulnerable and may lead to lasting health issues that could last for their whole life. Symptoms may include:

  • Snoring
  • Frequent sleep interruptions
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Heightened anxiety
  • Morning headaches
  • High blood pressure

We know that in general, you would choose a non-invasive solution that avoids prescription drugs whenever possible. The Vivos System uses the Pneumopedics® method as a way to cause naturally-occurring physiological enhancements in the upper airway over time. Vivos is regularly used to treat maxillary hypoplasia and mandibular retrusion, which are common causes of sleep apnea.

Breathing is an essential part of all our lives, and you will be amazed at how an effective breathing wellness program can help you and your family life easier. Reducing headaches, fatigue and anxiety are only a few of the benefits the Vivos system can provide, improving your quality of life and reducing the risk of future health complications like hypertension, stroke, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.

If you live in the Edmonton area, contact Dr. Harvey today at (780) 435-2888 for a free patient evaluation to see if Vivos can help you or a loved one achieve better sleep and a better life.
