Understanding NightLase: A Non-Invasive Solution for Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Do you suffer from chronic snoring or sleep apnea? If so, you know just how debilitating these conditions can be, not only to yourself but also to your partner. While there are many treatments available to help alleviate these conditions including a sleep apnea oral appliance, NightLase is a non-invasive and effective solution that is growing in popularity. In this blog post, we’ll delve deeper into what NightLase is and how it can help you enjoy a better night’s rest.


What is NightLase?

NightLase is a laser treatment that is designed to treat snoring and sleep apnea. It uses a Fotona laser to warm the tissues in the tongue and throat, thereby firming the skin, generating new collagen and lifting the soft palate. By doing this, NightLase effectively reduces the vibrations that cause snoring and increases the airflow through the airways, reducing the incidence of sleep apnea. A sleep apnea oral appliance is usually not involved in this procedure which makes it revolutionary in its ability to treat this common issue.


How Does NightLase Work?

NightLase works by warming the tissues in the mouth and throat with laser energy. This causes the tissue to contract and become lifted, thereby increasing the clearance of the airways. By doing so, it reduces the vibrations that cause snoring and reduces the severity of sleep apnea. The treatment typically takes 3-5 sessions, which are spaced three weeks apart and take around 30-40 minutes each to complete.


Who is a Good Candidate for NightLase?

NightLase is a non-invasive, non-surgical and effective treatment for those who suffer from snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. It can also be an option for those who cannot tolerate a sleep apnea oral appliance such as a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine. However, it’s important to note that NightLase may not be suitable for those with severe sleep apnea or other underlying health conditions. A dental professional trained in the NightLase protocol will be able to advise you if you’re a good candidate for the treatment.


Are There Any Side Effects to NightLase?

The NightLase treatment is non-surgical, non-invasive and generally well-tolerated. There are no incisions or sutures required, and patients typically experience no downtime or discomfort. However, some patients may experience mild soreness or a feeling of tightness in the throat following the treatment. These symptoms typically subside within a few days.


Why Choose NightLase over a Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance?

NightLase is an effective and non-invasive treatment option for those suffering from snoring or mild to moderate sleep apnea. It’s a gentle and safe procedure that involves no downtime or discomfort, making it an ideal solution for those who have been unable to tolerate other treatment options.
