Growing The Airway
I feel tremendously blessed that me and our children are being treated by Dr. Bennett.
Our son Roman is medically diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea at 11 years old and has developed an overbite due to mouth breathing. I would have never known had I not brought him in to see you. He’s an athlete and very active. Who would have thought!!??!! Since being treated with the Vivos Appliance the overbite is now going away and he’s focusing on nasal breathing instead of mouth breathing.
At 15 years old you discovered my daughter, Summerlin had a tongue tie that should’ve been discovered at birth. Amazing that none of her medical doctors or other dentists we’ve had since brought this to our attention. You did a wonderful job on her frenulotomy and releasing her tongue tie has already made a difference in her speech. She’s also been super compliant wearing her Vivos appliance.
And of course my whole life came together at 40 years old with understanding my own diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea. Had NO CLUE!!! Wow. I was the kid that was diagnosed (or should we call it misdiagnosed) with ADD/ADHD, aggression and hypertension. Adenoids and tonsils removed. Total mouth breather. Severe deviated septum, small palate, constantly tired drinking energy drinks to function, low testosterone levels, and brain fog. Since being treated with the Vivos appliance (I’ve still got 18 months or so left) we’ve grown my palate by 4mm, I’m breathing through my nasal airway and already the brain fog is dissipating. AMAZING!!! Can’t wait to see what happens over the next 18 months!!!
Thank you Dr. Bennett!!! And thank you Vivos!!!
This is a wonderful podcast! Dr. Bennett does such a great job explaining a complicated subject in a way that is easy to understand and apply. We don’t talk about sleep nearly enough in the healthcare field and I’m looking forward to learning more from this podcast!
Fascinating Podcast! I love the passion to help people and their overall health. Excited to hear upcoming material!:)
