I recently had an opportunity to talk to Dr. Felix Liao about teeth grinding and was given some very insightful takeaways from our meeting. Dr. Liao is one of the experts on bruxism and sleep apnea in the country. He has spent over 30 years trying to understand why the body would inflict damage upon its own tissues in the form of grinding. His findings and assessment of what causes grinding has certainly changed my outlook on it.
When we have patients who complain about grinding, most likely what we will do is recommend a nightguard. We tell patients that they are wearing down their teeth or the grinding is putting stress on their jaw joints and the treatment for that is a night guard. We fit it and tell the patients to wear it every night and presto, we expect and assume that the patient’s issue has been addressed.
But have you ever thought that instead of addressing the symptoms, we need to look at the root cause of the grinding? Based on the extensive work of Dr. Dave Singh, Vivos has developed a comprehensive and effective treatment for sleep apnea through their DNA appliance. Many of the symptoms that manifest itself as bruxism can be traced backed to obstructive sleep apnea. OSA can consequently cause other health issues outside of just dental issues.
While the need for this service is undeniable, the issue has always been creating a system that made it easy for a general dentist to understand and utilize. This is where the Vivos system has been revolutionary. The dentist is not just given a quick sales pitch and some literature about it but rather becomes part of an integrated program. From a comprehensive training program to marketing support, practice training, and medical coding assistance, as a Vivo provider, you will never feel left alone to figure out this much needed service for your patients.
