“[It’s] an actual solution instead of little Band-Aids along the way.”

Brittani Theriot on the Solution to a Decades-Old Question
This week on Vivos Voices, we visited with Brittani Theriot, a qualified dental hygienist and enthusiastic Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP).
For many years, dentists and healthcare providers were in the dark on sleep and breathing and their significant impact on the body and the individual’s risk of heart attack, stroke, dementia, and diabetes. But, no more. With Vivos Therapeutics, Inc., we have the answers to the questions you’ve been asking.
The Vivos Method offers healthcare professionals the opportunity to develop a more holistic approach to dentistry. Our mission is to treat the root cause of many common symptoms and comorbidities of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). That is what excites dentists the most: the chance to understand what’s actually going on in our bodies when we don’t sleep well and experience exhaustion, headaches, and a general feeling of being unwell.
“I really enjoy seeing patients be able to focus on their overall health, not just their dental health,” shared Theriot. “Ever since we integrated with Vivos, myself and the doctor, our whole view of the patient has completely changed because we’re able to identify the different things in the mouth that are associated with this.”
Common signs of OSA include wear on teeth, moodiness, crowding, misalignment, and more. “We’ve been able to give a reason why,” shared Theriot. “It’s not just [that] we’re stressed at night. Well, you are stressed at night. It’s because you can’t breathe. It’s that response for your body to [clench and grind]. So to give answers for these patients is the best thing.”
With Vivos, you have the answers, support, and tools necessary to be an effective expert provider. Even better, these treatments are innovative, lasting, effective, and life-changing.
“To give them an actual solution instead of little Band-Aids along the way, some patients have been able to feel like they can relax.”
