Laser Dentistry with NightLase®

Laser Dentistry for a Better Night’s Sleep

Lasers have evolved in the field of dentistry, along with other various dental advancements. Laser dentistry has had a remarkable impact on providing snoring and sleeps apnea treatments for patients in Brentwood, TN.

Dr. Kellye Rice utilizes Fotona’s patented Er: YAG laser modality, a solid-state laser, that allows for a precise snoring or OSA treatment as it safely penetrates heat into the oral tissue. This state-of-the-art technology provides effective, gentle heat to tighten oral mucosa tissue in order to clear up any obstruction in the airway.

Our Cool Springs dentist is excited to share the NightLase laser with our patients so they can receive an effective solution for their disturbed nights. We don’t believe any of our patients deserve to have untreated, sleepless nights which is why we curate a personalized treatment for each individual.


Undeniable Results with NightLase Therapy

As a patient-friendly alternative to CPAP and oral appliances, reduces snoring and the effects of sleep apnea by shrinking down your oral tissue to open a space in your airway so you can properly breathe. With a more open airway, you can sleep deeply and feel refreshed during the day.

If you have trouble wearing your CPAP or if oral appliances make your jaw sore, then NightLase may be the solution for you. Once you’ve received the proper diagnosis for your snoring or sleep apnea, you can explore your options with Dr. Rice and find out if NightLase is right for you.[
