Does your child experience bedwetting?
Nocturnal enuresis, or simply bedwetting can be a symptom of a compromised airway.
Dr Mark Levi, Australian leader in Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine can help cure bedwetting targeting a common underlying cause of nocturnal enuresis.
Adolescents who suffer from bedwetting are frustrated and embarrassed.
Parents with children who struggle with bedwetting know the impact on your child goes far beyond wet sheets and disrupted sleep for the child and parents when your child wets the bed.
Bedwetting also has a negative psychological and social costs on your child. It also causes stress, creates additional workload, and makes other emotional impacts on parents.
The result is a life full of anxiety, frustration, and struggle for both children and their parents.
The full impact of adolescent bedwetting extends far beyond impacting children. Parents feel the very real impact.
The stress of seeking a solution often leaves parents defeated and frustrated.
Parents can suffer similar psychological and social struggles. The stress often fractures relationships with your child. The stress of dealing with the bedwetting has drastic impacts on your personal health.
And the inability to say “yes” to sleepover events for your child can cause similar social struggles for parents, as other parents have more opportunities to socialise.
With these impacts, and others, it’s not hard to see how devastating bedwetting can be.

Only in the last 20 years has research established the connection between certain common childhood health issues and a single likely root cause – Sleep Disordered Breathing
Sleep Disordered Breathing can be the result of an obstructed airway caused by narrow dental arches and/or an underdeveloped jaw.
The symptoms associated with Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) can vary from one child to the next but even mild SDB, i.e. mouth breathing, crooked or crowded teeth, snoring etc. can point to serious underlying health issues and the need for treatment.
How does it work?
After years of research Professor David Singh DMD PhD DDSc, created the Vivos System 12 years ago which has taken the research and science from above and created biomimetic (meaning to mimic nature) oral appliances which have helped more than 14,000 patients in the USA.
The Vivos System consists of multi-disciplinary therapeutic protocols and oral appliances which increase and enhance the airway.
Dr Levi is working with children who struggle to breathe when they sleep by using this system of biomimetic appliances and therapies. These treatments promote natural growth and development to expand the dental arches and help the upper and lower jaws to grow. As these areas develop more fully, the child’s airway may widen and expand, allowing the child to breathe better and some of these symptoms may disappear. When children can breathe properly, they can grow, learn and blossom into their full potential.
