Excessive Daytime Sleepiness is a real medical condition associated with sleep apnea that may leave you feeling drowsy or cause you to fall asleep when you shouldn't during the day. This can lead to problems with work, school, activities and hobbies, and even your relationships.

When every day is a struggle to stay awake, finding a treatment that works can be a top priority. If you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), there are many things you can do to combat your Excessive Daytime Sleepiness (EDS).

A surprising number of people have not consulted a professional about their concerns. Sleep Apnea has been linked to other serious health conditions and is potentially life-threatening.


Other Conditions of Sleep Apnea

Many common illnesses and disease can be the result of interrupted or abnormal breathing during sleep. If you or someone you love suffers from any of these conditions, it may be time to ask Dr. Flower about normal breathing.

Chronic Snoring


Snoring is your body’s signal that something is wrong, that the airway is obstructed, and can often indicate a more serious health condition.

We can offer Healthy Breathing

We would like to introduce you to the Vivos System!  Our team has gone through extensive training to bring you the most up to date sleep device.  Correcting problems in the airway may eliminate many health concerns and restore a life full of energy, optimism and joy. The Vivos System is a non-evasive, usually pain-free approach. Other treatments address symptoms. Vivos addresses the underlying condition.

Interrupted breathing during sleep may contribute to other potentially serious health conditions and may improve or even be eliminated with The Vivos System. A narrow, obstructed airway makes it impossible to breath normally during sleep.  We can correct problems in the airway to eliminate many health concerns and restore a healthy lifestyle.

Eliminating the Obstruction

Your Sleep Apnea may be the result of an obstruction in the airway caused by narrow dental arches and/or an underdeveloped jaw. The Vivos System works to correct the underlying problem by enabling the jaws to expand to their proper position.

The VIVOS Appliance

The VIVOS appliance is removable and easy for adults to tolerate. It only needs to be worn in the evening through the night. At the end of treatment, the appliance can be retired and does not need to be worn forever. The difference between the Vivos appliance vs night guards and oral sleep apnea and snore appliances is that the Vivos appliance corrects or dramatically improves TMJ and sleep apnea problems. In contrast, a night guard or oral sleep or snoring appliance only manages a problem and is worn for the rest of your life.


Using advanced scanning technology, we will take precise measurements to ensure a proper fit for your needs at your initial consultation. You will achieve your goals by following your custom treatment plan and we will measure and track your progress to a healthy renewed vitality.
