What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a common, potentially dangerous sleep disorder that can cause patients to develop sometimes fatal symptoms, such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and more.
The condition is characterized by breathing that stops and starts as the patient sleeps, inhibiting sleep quality, and often causing life-altering fatigue. The most common form of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by throat muscles that relax during sleep.

Treating Sleep Apnea, The Vivos Way!
Dr. Kandimalla has been specially trained and certified to provide sleep apnea treatment using the Vivos System, a cutting-edge therapeutic protocol that uses special oral appliances prescribed by dentists. As a Vivos patient, all treatment components are performed right here, in-office, and in the comfort of your own home.
The process begins with a home sleep assessment using advanced sleep testing equipment. Next, Dr. Kandimalla will use advanced 3D imaging to obtain ultra-precise measurements in order to develop your unique treatment plan. Afterward, the measurements will be analyzed and you will be provided a custom oral appliance designed to correct any craniofacial developmental deficiencies that may be causing your sleep apnea.
Typically, patients are prescribed a 12-24-month treatment plan. All you will have to do is wear your oral appliance and night and attend regularly-scheduled progress appointments with Dr. Kandimalla.
