Sleep apnea is a serious condition which occurs when the airway is blocked and normal breathing is prevented. If not treated, it can lead to serious medical problems down the road, including liver problems, heart disease, depression and insomnia. Snoring also occurs as a result of a blocked airway and may occur on its own or as a symptom of sleep apnea.
While there are many treatments available for snoring and sleep apnea, our dentists have chosen to use Fotona NightLase therapy. This non-invasive laser treatment is an alternative to traditional treatments such as CPAP and oral appliance therapy.
NightLase works by using a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect to reduce the affects of sleep apnea and decrease the amplitude of snoring. This patented laser technology optimizes the length of the laser pulses, which allows the laser pulses to penetrate into the oral mucosa tissue and tighten it. These lasers are safe, precisely controlled and optimally delivered to the treatment area in order to produce the best results. Your treatment will require three treatment sessions over a six week period.
Benefits of using Fotona NightLase include:
- Results that last for up to a year
- A repeatable treatment
- Highly comfortable
- Non-invasive — no chemical treatments and no oral devices are necessary!
- Fully customized to meet your specific needs
