Vivos for Kids

Home 9 Vivos for Kids
Vivos therapy is a relatively new and innovative approach to treating sleep disordered breathing (SDB) in children with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Vivos therapy is a non-surgical approach to correcting the malformations in the upper airway that can lead to SDB. It utilizes a combination of appliances and exercises to permanently improve the structure of the airway, allowing the child to breathe more easily and without the need for continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines or other forms of mechanical ventilation.


The first step in Vivos therapy is a comprehensive evaluation of the patient, including a physical examination and imaging of the upper airway. This allows the team of doctors to create a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to the individual needs of the patient. The treatment plan typically includes the use of custom-made appliances and exercises designed to gradually correct the airway malformations.


Vivos therapy is a unique approach to aligning the teeth without the use of traditional braces. The therapy utilizes custom-made appliances that are designed to gently move the teeth and jaw into a more natural and healthy position, allowing for improved airflow through the upper airway. This helps reduce the risk of sleep disordered breathing (SDB) from ADHD symptoms. In addition to the appliances, Vivos therapy also includes exercises that are designed to strengthen the airway muscles and further reduce the risk of SDB.


The appliances used in Vivos therapy are designed to gently move the teeth and jaw into a more natural and healthy position. This helps to open up the airway and reduce the risk of SDB. The appliances are typically worn for several hours a day, and the length of time that they are worn will depend on the severity of the condition.
