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 system is used to correct these problems for all age groups: children, teens and adults. It is never too late to resolve these issues.

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.
Some babies can have ties and not be symptomatic. To know if the ties are a problem we ask two major questions:
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.

Jaw locking, clicking or popping
Head or face pain
Ear congestion or ringing in the ears
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. Dr. Bennett 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.

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. At Vivos TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre we have a laser that tones and lifts the upper soft palate and eliminates snoring sounds. The procedure can be done in 3 simple appointments over a 6 week period.
Research shows snoring is a contributing factor in the following medical conditions:
Many people are not able to use a CPAP machine to treat OSA (obstructive 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. We have oral appliances to treat OSA that can be more comfortable, and easier to travel with, that may be an alternative to CPAP machines for you.
Does your child have any of these symptoms?
Dry lips, bedwetting, mouth breathing or ADHD?
These could be a sign of sleep apnea or suffocation throughout the night for your child.
For proper growth and development children need a good night’s sleep with an open airway.
Dr. Bennett and the staff at Vivos TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre can diagnose your child’s condition and provide treatment options for optimal health and development.
