AlTERNATIVE TO BRACES

Myofunctional – The Natural Way to a Beautiful Smile

Beautiful faces…. Less Braces

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.

TONGUE-TIED

Tongue or Lip Tied?

Support your child from the very beginning. 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:

  1. Is the baby getting enough to eat?
  2. Is nursing comfortable for the mother?

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.

TMJ/ JAW PAIN

Do you have any of these symptoms?

  • Jaw pain
  • Jaw locking, clicking or popping
  • Head or face pain
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • 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.

SLEEP DISORDERS

Do you Suffer From Sleep Apnea?

We offer Craniofacial epigenetics with DNA/mRNA Appliances. To learn more, click here.
If you are looking to Cure your Sleep Apnea for good then let us help!

Persons with Sleep Disorder Breathing or SDB often snore, gasp, stop breathing, and have interrupted sleep patterns. As a result, they can experience daytime drowsiness, fatigue, foggy minds, to name just a few. While SDB is a serious disorder that can worsen many health conditions, the Vivos DNA System represents a breakthrough treatment proven to naturally remodel, reposition, and redevelop the anatomy that surrounds the human airway.

Patients who undergo Vivos DNA Appliance therapy often report a noticeable improvement in facial symmetry and aesthetics as their Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) symptoms dissipate. Also, many patients with a history of headaches and pain from TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) often find lasting relief.

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. If epigenetics is not for you, we also 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.

Is Snoring a Concern in Your Life?

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, we have a laser that tones and lifts the upper soft palate and eliminates snoring sounds. The procedure can be done in 4 simple appointments over an 8 week period.

Research shows snoring is a contributing factor in the following medical conditions:

  • Cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension
  • Sleepiness and fatigue during the day
  • Morning Headaches
  • Impotence in men or erectile dysfunction
  • Depression and anxiety

Children & Sleep Breathing Disorders

Does your child have any of these symptoms?
Dry lips, snoring, bedwetting, mouth breathing, swollen tonsils, chronic allergies or ADHD? These could be a sign of sleep breathing disorder. In other words 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 can diagnose your child’s condition and provide treatment options for optimal health and development.

We offer informative parent education webinars, so call us today to set one up. We look forward to speaking with you!

What Our Patients Say About Us

My 1 month old baby needed a frenectomy on both his lip and tongue. They explained the procedure and I loved the way Dr. Bennett went about doing it. He made sure my baby was comfortable before he started and he was quick & efficient with the laser. As soon as he was finished, my baby was calm and content. We had a great experience!

Aubrey Gatica

I absolutely love Dr. Bennett and his staff! They have made an enormous impact on my two daughters lives. My girls are both wearing the myobraces and in the past year have seen amazing transformations- not only in their teeth alignment, but posture, tongue placement and other health benefits. The myobrace is the fix to the cause of a lot of mouth/health problems. If you go in for a consultation- you will realize the concept behind myobrace makes perfect sense! Not to mention it’s so much less invasive for your kids! We love TMJ Therapy❤️

Shelly Hall

Great experience with Dr. Bennett. My snoring was significantly better after my first laser treatment and non existent now. Not only am I sleeping better but my wife is sleeping much better. She never realized how much my snoring affected her sleep. Thank you Dr. Bennett!

Brandon Condie

Using Myobrace has been a life changer for my girls! Everyone we have worked with at TMJ has been kind, patient, & aware of each of my children’s individual needs. We are so grateful!

Christina Crumrine

Dr. Bennett and his team are awesome! I had surgery and physical therapy on my TMJ years ago, and I’d never been able to get rid of my TMJ pain and other jaw issues. Now that I’m working with Dr. Bennett, I feel that I’m finally on the road to a real recovery rather than just a temporary fix. I love how Dr. Bennett looks for the root of the problem rather than just treating symptoms. He evaluated my overall health to find factors that contribute to my TMJ pain, and I found out ways to help my TMJ that no other doctors have ever given me.

Valerie Petersen

For the first time in almost two years my wife has gotten some answers and positive treatment. We are very pleased and look forward to having them help her relieve and possible cure her symptoms

Jonathan Ragains

Matthew Evans

Such a wonderful office! Great and caring staff. Mikaela is always so nice and happy and beautiful. The whole staff is. Dr. Bennett is very knowledgeable and such a kind person. He is so helpful and you can tell he takes the time to teach his staff so they are all very competent. Also don’t listen to the one dude who gave bad reviews. He’s crazy, it’s a great place to receive help and treatment!

Tatiana Petty

Dr. Bennett is amazing. I was referred to him by my dentist after experiencing an increase in jaw pain from TMJ. Not only has he treated my TMJ, I have experienced a reduction in my debilitating migraines and overall I just feel better. He was the first doctor I have met with that has been able to identify and treat my sinus issues, something I was not expecting when I went in for a consultation. He has given me a better understanding of how I can help my body and a more positive outlook on life – one without pain!

Allison Jester

My 1week old had a lip and tongue tie revision done here and breastfeeding went from being extremely painful to barely even feeling when the baby ate! I highly recommend Dr. Bennett. He is kind and professional!

Rachelle Metcalf

They worked very hard to accommodate to my needs and to get me the help I needed. I have significantly improved, and everyone there is very committed to making patients’ lives as pain free and comfortable as possible. I highly recommend Vivos!!

Meagan Flinders

Dr Bennett is amazing and is so knowledgeable, but He is also seeking to learn more, which is what makes him such a great doctor. He is caring, kind, understanding and really wants to find the whole solution, not just looking for a little bandaid for the problem!

Becca Welch

Dr Bennett and staff are amazing! So happy we heard about them! Got so many more benefits than just the symptom that was bothering my son they helped with! Win win!

Brittney Gardner

This office is amazing! the employees are supper nice and kind, the front desk is nice and always willing to help you at anytime. They have me on a Myobrace and it helps me so much, with sleeping, breathing, and it’s helping my teeth. I would love to tell many kids to go to vivos. It’s an amazing program and is an amazing office.

Kaline Van Lenten

I am so happy with the results I have experienced in the last 3 months. I have been using the mouth appliances (retainer) as directed and my daily migraines have subsided to maybe only one a week. I have suffered from migraines my whole life and finally I think I have found the cure!!!! I have done the faith piercing last year which helped immensely but did not last long term. I love the staff they are all so friendly, respectful, and they listen to my concerns. The office is very clean and there is plenty of reading materials. Another great thing is the short wait time. They really schedule patients and visit time appropriately. Please come see the Dr to resolve your migraines!

Laurie Lualemaga

Meagan F.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I feel they have taken time to be sure all my concerns are addressed in a way that works best for me. I have had problems with jaw popping and soreness as well as unrelated numbness due to wisdom teeth extraction. I am still in the process, but my jaw problems are not as severe and I have regained some feeling from numbness that had persisted without change for a couple years now. I am only about half way through treatment. They are seriously awesome.

Alexandra Patey

Dr Bennetts knowledge and expertise is unlike I’ve ever met before. I am an extremely impressed with his ability to educate me on my problems and I’m grateful for the help I received with my back and neck pain that was related to my TMJ. I would highly recommend anyone going to their office!

Angie G.

Kaline V.

My little one-only a month and a half-was straining with her breathing and not nursing without a shield. We went in to check for ties and got a lip and tongue tie lasered. She immediately had more success with nursing without a shield and a couple days later she was nursing multiple times a day. Her throat airway has been clearer and now we are just working on the congestion in her nose. Dr. Bennett and his staff have been awesome! They’re all so kind and Dr Bennett is very knowledgeable. He also took his time to make sure all our questions were answered and that we understood everything. I Highly recommend this office!
