I'm seeking a solution for:

Your Daytime/Nighttime Appliance

This revolutionary device is the future in dentistry. The DNA appliance from Vivos is cutting-edge technology that's based on science. It anticipates how the jaw can be remodeled to increase the size of the patient's throat cavity. The DNA appliance stimulates stem cells to produce more bone, causing subtle changes to the bones in your jaw that create the ideal conditions for optimum health.

Sleep apnea often results from an obstruction in the airway that's caused by narrow dental arches and/or an underdeveloped jawbone. The DNA appliance treats this obstruction. Dr. Rice will find the right treatment to BREATH NEW ENERGY INTO YOUR LIFE so you can live a full, happy, and productive life.

VIVOS System

How it works

The Vivos System is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment protocol which includes a custom-fit oral appliance similar to an orthodontic retainer. The Vivos appliance is typically worn only in the evening and overnight. It's comfortable and generally easy to wear.

Anti-Snoring Laser Treatment

Dr Rice’s features NightLase® therapy from Fotona, a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of your sleep. The NightLase procedure reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the sound of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.

If you've had difficulty with CPAP or if Oral Appliances cause soreness, this could be the solution for you. Your airway will be more open at night and also during the day for easy breathing and optimum health.

Dr. Rice is one of only 200 dentists in the US trained in the protocol to provide this procedure. A complementary sleep consultation with Dr. Rice will allow you to explore your options and find out if NightLase is right for you.[
