Sleep Apnea Appliance VIVOS Child Treatment Castle Rock

The primary use of the VIVOS system at a young age is to prevent any sleeping and breathing issues in the future. Just as it is used for an adult, children who suffer from underdevelopment of their jaws can receive a custom-made retainer called the DNA Appliance (Daytime Nighttime Appliance).

DNA appliances are custom-made for the child to help their jaws grow properly so that the airway can be opened, making breathing easier. It is to be worn in the evenings and at night from 12-24 months. When the appliance is worn, it gives a small constant pressure that expands the palate of the mouth. This expansion can help construct the airway making it less crowded and ultimately easier to breathe. The VIVOS Child Treatment in Castle Rock process for children is to mainly help prevent them from having to deal with sleep apnea in the future.

Benefits of DNA Appliance for Children

DNA appliance helps guide the jaws into place but also helps plan for newly erupted teeth ensuring that they have enough room in the mouth:

  • Prevents sleep apnea as an adult
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
