At My Rivertown Dentist, we talk a lot about sleep because we care about your overall health just as much as your smile. We wanted to talk a little bit more this month about some extraordinary technology that we’ve recently discovered and started using at our office that has the potential to improve your sleep and your life in general — who doesn’t want that?
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Ashley Lee, the team at My Rivertown Dentist has been partnering with Vivos Therapeutics, completing intensive training to provide a one-of-a-kind, comprehensive approach to both adult and children’s dentistry. We’ve seen an increase in patients (both adults and kiddos) struggling with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) issues, especially over the past few years. Because of this, we brought VivoScore to you exclusively at our dental office in Madison. It’s a straightforward, non-invasive way to screen for SDB that’s FDA-approved and can be completed in the comfort of your own home — no sleep clinic visit required. You get a comprehensive SDB test that can help with the proper diagnosis of sleep apnea.
When you come to our Madison dental office for a consultation, we will do a thorough evaluation of your teeth, mouth, head, and neck. We’ll get the important information we need without any inconvenience! If Dr. Lee determines that you can benefit from a VivoScore sleep test, we can move forward. Thanks to a wearable sensor ring that fits comfortably on your finger, testing is essential and easy. The ring is connected to an app on your smartphone with a cloud-based AI that looks at your sleep quality throughout the night to help with a proper diagnosis. You’ll wear the ring to bed for a few days and then return to see Dr. Lee to discuss what data it has collected.
At My Rivertown Dentist, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to single-handedly change how we provide our style of dental care and treatment planning for our littlest patients. Everything we do, every recommendation we make, is based on expert research and findings from The Institute for Craniofacial Medicine. We are proud to say that we’re the only Madison dentist where you can find this information and in-depth dedication to you and your child’s dental care and development. We’re specifically focused on building a foundation of oral health for the kiddos we care for at a young age.
The sensor ring is perfect for helping children overcome SDB and sleep apnea at a young age. Unfortunately, these problems often go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed in kids. However, using state-of-the-art technology like the smart ring, we can gently record sleep quality, pulse oximetry, heart rate, and any potential sleep apnea events using SleepImage, an FDA-cleared cardiopulmonary coupling technology.
