“I’m tired of putting Band-Aids over wounds. I’d rather get to the root problem, and Vivos allows me to do that.”

Dr. Ryan Roberson on Tiring of Traditional Dentistry

This week on Vivos Voices, we visited with Dr. Roberson, an experienced dentist and enthusiastic Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP).

For Dr. Roberson, he’s been involved in airway dentistry and sleep-disorder treatment for over a decade. When he heard about Vivos and their revolutionary devices, he knew he had to implement them into his practice. “Since becoming a Vivos provider, it’s changed my practice. People are coming to me, and I’m asking them a lot of different questions than I used to. People come to me with chipped teeth, broken teeth, and they’re used to going to dentists [who] say, ‘We’re going to crown it. We’re going to veneer it.’ [Instead] I started asking them questions about how they sleep.”

The great thing about our team is that we teach you how to not only implement The Vivos Treatment into your practice but also recognize the signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and individuals who are sleeping and breathing insufficiently. By understanding the difference between a healthy and unhealthy patient and being able to ask the right questions, we can determine the best therapy possible.

“These are conversations that people don’t normally have when they go to a dentist. You see light bulbs going off in the eyes,” shared Dr. Roberson. Once the patient is educated on their condition, it’s a no-brainer. With disruptions in breathing interrupting sleep, the organs and organ systems will lack the sufficient oxygen levels required to repair themselves and function properly. Oxygen is essential for life. And sleep apnea is an epidemic that must be addressed.

“It’s great, and if you create a beautiful smile, that’s just hiding and masking an underlying issue. I haven’t really helped that individual. I’ve just covered it up. It’s just another Band-Aid, and I’m tired of putting Band-Aids over wounds. I’d rather get to the root problem, and Vivos allows me to do that.”

My name is Dr. Ryan Roberson. Uh, I’m a restorative dentist in Georgetown, Texas. I’ve been there for almost 18 years now, been doing and treating airway and sleep disorder breathing for about a decade. Since becoming a Vivos provider, it’s changed my practice. People are coming to me, and I’m asking them a lot different questions than I used to. People come to me with chipped teeth, broken teeth, and they’re used to going to dentists and say we’re going to crown it. We’re going to veneer it. We’re gonna, we’re gonna superficial fix it. And so I started asking them questions about how they sleep. What do they, how do they experience their day? And then they start sharing that they’re on these medications and these medications. And so once I tell them or share with them that there’s a different way to experience life, those are conversations that people don’t normally have when they go to a dentist. It’s almost like light bulbs. You see light bulbs going off in the eyes if that’s even possible. But their eyes kind of just, they kind of have these aha moments, and that is really cool to see. The changes that people are sharing once they’ve started treatment are I’m breathing better. I feel different. They’re dreaming again. The Vivos support is amazing because I have a coach that kind of integrated me into Vivos, had weekly conversations with me, and my team has access to them. When I have my phone calls with my integration specialist, she answers all my questions. I have a clinical advisor, Dr. Hale, Kalli Hale. She’s amazing. Everybody is very willing to help. You can really see that they believe in what they’re doing. If you believe in the, the root causes and why we all have underdeveloped jaws, and therefore underdeveloped airways, we can all benefit from this treatment. And it’s a nonsurgical way because people don’t want to do surgery. I would say if you truly want to change people’s lives, not just say you change people’s lives like I create beautiful smiles all the time, and it’s great. It’s great, and if you create a beautiful smile that’s just hiding and masking an underlying issue, I haven’t really helped that individual. I’ve just covered it up. It’s just another band-aid, and I’m tired of putting band-aids over wounds. I’d rather get to the root problem, and Vivos allows me to do that.
