What causes snoring?

Most people think of snoring as just that annoying noise, when actually it is the vibration of a soft palate. Let’s break it down a bit further. When the airway is not open fully, the air is not able to move freely through your nose and mouth during sleep. It happens due to a narrowing of the airway, which forces the tissues to vibrate and make a loud noise which we identify as snoring. In some cases the airway can become completely blocked for a short period of time. This condition is called obstructive sleep apnea. Snoring may be caused by many factors, but the most common contributors are a combination of any of these factors:

  • age
  • nasal problems
  • sinus problems
  • excess weight
  • alcohol
  • medications
  • smoking
  • sleeping position

Is snoring bad?

Snoring can have some consequences that can negatively impact the life of a person. Snoring can result in:

  • sleep deprivation,
  • tiredness, headaches,
  • bad mood,
  • dry mouth,
  • and even relationship problems.
  • sleeping position.

How can I treat Snoring?

Treatment options for snoring include those, that focus on keeping the breathing passage open. Some patients use specially made dental appliances, but they only work when the patient is using them. Another treatment option is using a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) system to help control sleep apnea and the snoring associated with it. While very effective, these devices can be very uncomfortable and bulky. Finally, there are surgical options available for correcting snoring which usually involve removal of tissue from the uvula and pharynx, but these surgeries are invasive and can result in a lengthy and unconformable recovery period following the surgery. And then there is NightLase™, a non-invasive laser snoring treatment without appliances, that essentially shrinks the tissue that causes vibration and loud snoring.

What is NightLase™ and how does NightLase™ work?

NightLase™ is a laser snoring treatment. It is a NON-invasive, NO-appliances, simple and an effective way of reducing or eliminating snoring. During the procedure the energy of the laser is used to target the tissues of the airway causing a tightening effect of those tissues. Reduced amount of tissue helps to keep your airway open. The dentist will perform about three short sessions of NightLase™ over the two-month period. One treatment takes about 20 minutes. NightLase™ laser snoring treatment is pain free and doesn’t require anesthesia. Patients report that the procedure is very comfortable and has no downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately. Results are often seen after the first session.

Exploring the Benefits of Laser Snoring Treatment for Restorative Sleep

Are you tired of sleepless nights due to disruptive snoring? Laser snoring treatment might just be the solution you’ve been searching for. Snoring, a common occurrence during sleep, can affect not only the quality of rest of the person with snoring but also impact the sleep of their partners. Traditional methods like nasal strips and positional therapy have shown limited success, leading to an increased interest in more advanced solutions like laser snoring treatment.

Laser snoring treatment involves the use of focused laser energy to address the underlying causes of snoring. During the procedure, a specialized medical professional directs the laser at specific areas in the throat and palate. The energy emitted by the laser snoring treatment tightens and firms the tissues, reducing the vibrations that lead to the characteristic snoring sound. By targeting the root cause, laser snoring treatment offers a more lasting solution compared to temporary fixes.

The benefits of laser snoring treatment extend beyond a quieter night’s sleep. Improved sleep quality leads to better overall health. Sleep plays a crucial role in physical and mental well-being, and chronic snoring can disrupt this essential process. By opting for this treatment, individuals can experience increased daytime alertness, enhanced mood, and decreased fatigue.

One of the notable advantages of laser snoring treatment is its minimally invasive nature. Unlike surgical options that might require incisions, laser snoring treatment is done in the dental office and requires no hospitalization. Recovery times are very short, with most individuals able to resume their normal activities the same day.

However, like any medical procedure, laser snoring treatment isn’t suitable for everyone. A comprehensive evaluation by a qualified medical professional is essential to determine whether the treatment is a suitable option based on an individual’s medical history and the underlying causes of their snoring.

Laser snoring treatment presents a promising avenue for those seeking a more permanent solution to their snoring problem. With its ability to target the root causes of snoring and its minimally invasive approach, this advanced laser snoring treatment option offers hope for restful nights and improved overall well-being. If snoring is keeping you or your loved ones awake at night, it might be time to explore the potential benefits of laser snoring treatment and regain the tranquility of peaceful sleep.

  • Tiredness
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Impaired thinking
  • Excess weight
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Acid reflux

What is it like to have NightLase™ snoring treatment done at the dental office?

Since NightLase is a non-invasive, non-surgical laser snoring treatment, no anesthetic is necessary during your treatment. Using our Fotona laser, Dr. Anton Zhadovich will use the NightLase™ hand piece to apply laser energy only to areas of the throat and soft palate. You will experience a slight feeling of warmth and tingling during this process. Once the tissue that causes snoring has been treated, the session is complete. Treatment lasts for about 20 minutes.

95% of patients who've undergone the treatment have reported improvements in their snoring problems.

NightLase™ results before and after

Most NightLase™ patients require a series of three treatments spaced out during a two-month period to achieve optimal results. After the first laser snoring treatment, you already might notice some immediate reduction of snoring. Upon the completion of three treatments, your airway size should be noticeably larger. Patients who completed the course of treatment with NightLase™ report feeling more rested in the morning. Patient’s partners also notice a significant reduction in snoring. It’s important to know that the results achieved with NightLase™ are not permanent. The patient might need to touch up sessions a year or more after the initial treatment.
