A Real Solution for Sleep Apnea
It’s been estimated that one in fourteen Americans suffers from sleep apnea. This condition is generally associated with loud snoring, short or stagnant breathing, and snorting noises that the patient makes while sleeping.
Sleep apnea has been linked to a number of serious medical conditions such as hypertension, anxiety, obesity, diabetes, asthma, and depression. Because sleep apnea can have such a negative impact on your health, Kellye N. Rice, DMD seeks out the most innovative solutions for our sleep apnea patients at Cool Springs Laser Dentistry in Brentwood, TN.
As part of our commitment to advanced sleep apnea care, Dr. Rice is proud to be an Integrated Provider of the Vivos System. The Vivos System is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option designed to restore normal breathing and improve the overall health and wellness of our sleep apnea patients.
The Vivos Advantage
CPAP machines and regular oral appliances only address the symptoms of sleep apnea. But the Daytime-Nighttime Appliance (DNA) system from Vivos corrects the underlying issue that causes airway obstruction by gradually expanding the patient’s palate. This creates the necessary room in the mouth and airway for you to breathe comfortably throughout the night.
The DNA system is designed in accordance with the concept of Pneumopedic® treatment, which is the process of gradually increasing the size of the upper jaw. By remodeling the bones in your jaw, we can correct the structure of the airway without surgery.
The Mandibular Repositioning-Nighttime Appliance (mRNA) System
Kellye N. Rice, DMD is also specially trained by Vivos to use the Mandibular Repositioning-Nighttime Appliance® (mRNA) system. Instead of correcting the upper jaw like the DNA system, the (mRNA) corrects the lower jaw. Repositioning the lower jaw makes breathing easier for sleep apnea patients while redeveloping the upper airway for long-term relief.
The Vivos System is Easy to Use
The DNA appliance is worn in the evening after you eat and while you sleep, for a total of 10 to 12 hours per day. By slowly expanding the size of the patient’s jaw, the DNA appliance can eliminate sleep apnea symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions
No! Once your palate is gradually expanded by wearing the DNA appliance at night (usually for 9-18 months), the problem that caused your snoring and sleep apnea will have been corrected. For many patients, this is a permanent cure for snoring and sleep apnea.
Snoring is a common result of sleep apnea, and making it difficult for others to sleep in your presence is only the beginning of the problems these issues cause. Even if you are technically asleep all night, sleep apnea makes it nearly impossible for your body to get the rest and rejuvenation it needs.
Treating your snoring and sleep apnea can help you feel more rested and alert, reduce your risk of cardiovascular problems and type 2 diabetes, improve your immune system function, and even improve your mood.
There are so many benefits of the Vivos systems when compared to other treatment options for snoring and sleep apnea. This is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for snoring that is often permanent. It is a safe, painless, and all-natural snoring remedy. Plus, expanding the size of your jaw may also provide cosmetic benefits.
In addition to alleviating or even curing snoring and sleep apnea, Dr. Rice may also employ the Vivos DNA device to give you relief from migraine headaches, TMJ pain, and pain and damage caused by tooth grinding. Since this device expands the upper jaw, it may also enlarge your sinuses and reduce your risk of sinus infections.
