The Best Experience

We had the best experience at Pearl Care this week. My kids came in for their Vivos assessments and though it was a lengthy time at the office due to the amount of data that was collected, they did great. The assistants were organized and fun, they were engaging and made the appointment easy. We really appreciate having such a great office.

Vivos System solutions

No bulky, uncomfortable equipment necessary. This non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option can help correct the structure of the airway to improve your overall health and wellness. The Daytime-Nighttime Appliance, or DNA Appliance system, expands the palate to correct the underlying issue and create more space in the mouth and airway. Comfortable and nearly invisible, this easy-to-use system can improve sleep quality, energy, and provide long-term relief for sleep apnea and other airway disorders.

Myofunctional Therapy

Exercising the muscles in your mouth, face, and tongue can help train them for proper breathing, speaking, chewing, and swallowing. Proper muscle function will help with sleep apnea, snoring, TMD, headaches, and other more serious conditions. This non-invasive treatment can lead to improved breathing, which can lead to a healthier life.
