Sleep and breathing disorders, like snoring, can be very disruptive. They don’t just affect you, but also your loved ones. At
we offer an effective solution in the form of Nightlase Laser Therapy. It is safe, reliable, and can improve the quality of your sleep significantly. If you struggle with chronic snoring and sleep apnea, we can help. Our dentist will explain the entire procedure in detail so you can make the right decision regarding your treatment.
What Does Nightlase Laser Therapy Do?
Nightlase Laser therapy involves using a soft tissue laser to target the oral mucosa tissue. The laser delivers gentle heat and causes tightening in the tissues as the collagen present within them contracts.
Snoring and sleep apnea happens because loose soft tissue is blocking your airway. Nightlase Laser Therapy tightens this tissue to open up and relax the airway, which removes the blockage and prevents snoring. As long as the tissues remain tight and keep the airway open, you won’t have to deal with snoring or related sleep apnea issues.
Safe and Easy Solution
The Nightlase Laser Therapy uses FDA approved laser technology and cold thermal energy transfer to get the desired results. The laser is powerful enough to penetrate the skin and affect the tissues, but gentle enough to ensure even the most delicate areas of your mouth are safe.
The treatment is carried out in the clinic, and there’s no downtime. You can walk out of the clinic and carry out your everyday activities without any problems. Our dentist will explain all the precautions you need to take before and after the treatment during a consultation.
The entire Nightlase Laser Therapy process requires only three sessions in our office. The procedure is non-invasive and doesn’t cause any unbearable pain.
How Long Does The Effect Last?
The effect of Nightlase Laser Therapy lasts for about a year, if not longer. You can come back to our clinic for a retouch treatment if your snoring symptoms return. There’s no limit to the number of treatments you can get. So, if you’re concerned about your snoring problem and need assistance, don’t hesitate to ask our dentist about this option.
Why Choose Nightlase Laser Therapy Over Other Options?
Many people use sleeping aids and oral appliances to stop snoring. Unfortunately, these appliances are very uncomfortable and can disrupt your natural sleep. Patients inevitably remove these appliances in the middle of the night or stop wearing them entirely. Oral appliances don’t have long-term effects so as soon as you remove them, the snoring comes back.
They can also cause joint pain, dry mouth, and even alter the position of your teeth. This can have long term consequences and can lead to problems like teeth grinding in the future. Why endure the discomfort when there is a much better alternative available in the form of Nightlase Laser Therapy?
Laser treatment is a more comfortable option because you don’t need to wear any appliance or dental tray while sleeping. Once your three sessions are complete, you won’t snore for a year. You won’t have to deal with joint pain or soreness every morning, which can improve the quality of life significantly.
Nightlase Laser Therapy Takes Time
While Nightlase Laser Therapy is a convenient, effective, and comfortable in-office procedure, it isn’t an immediate cure for all your snoring problems. The number of sessions you need to complete to experience the best effect are dependent on the severity of the sleep disorder.
If you want a more immediate solution, our dentist will recommend other alternative treatments. Laser therapy has become popular because it is non-invasive and gentler on the body. The yearly top-up treatment doesn’t require any time or effort, which makes Nightlase an ideal treatment for busy individuals.
