Snoring can be caused from a variety of factors, including sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition caused by the airway being blocked by the tongue or collapsed tissues. Symptoms include sleepiness during the day, headaches and snoring. If gone untreated, sleep apnea could lead to high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.
We offer NightLase as a noninvasive treatment to reduce both the effects of snoring and sleep apnea. Since snoring and sleep apnea can occur due to tissues in your mouth and throat relaxing and causing partial blockage of the airway, NightLase works by using controlled laser pulses to tighten your oral mucosa tissue. This helps opens the airway and allows you to breathe easier as you sleep. This treatment is safe and gentle. Patients typically require three treatments over six weeks.
The benefits of NightLase include:
- A comfortable treatment that does not require anesthetic
- Results that can last up to a year
- No oral devices
