Nightlase for Snoring
Fortunately, treatment options are available, so if you snore, read on to learn about Nightlase.
What is Nightlase?
Nightlase is a laser treatment that is used to treat snoring and sleep apnea by increasing the space in a patient’s airway. It’s non-invasive and the procedure aims to stimulate the tightening of the soft tissues in the upper palate, throat, and airway. By applying medical laser technology to the oral cavity and airway, the tissues begin to contract over time, which opens the airway.
This treatment process takes 3-4 sessions to complete, and the process is spread out over a 9 to 12-week period. Each session takes about 45 minutes, and after the treatment is complete, patients can expect to breathe better during sleep and reduce snoring.
The effects typically last for about a year, and the sessions can be repeated once they’re needed again.
Nightlase is most effective for patients with mild to moderate snoring issues. In sleep apnea cases, it’s important for patients to receive a proper diagnosis and evaluation of their condition’s severity. In more severe cases, some sleep apnea symptoms may persist after Nightlase treatment, but breathing quality during sleep will improve.
Though this procedure is non-invasive, some patients report experiencing a dry sensation in the mouth and near the back of the throat following a Nightlase session. This side effect subsides after a couple of days.
Nightlase is designed to treat snoring and breathing issues that are caused by soft palate tissues taking up too much room in the mouth or throat. Patients with breathing conditions that are unrelated to oral and airway tissues, such as Central Sleep Apnea, may not be candidates for Nightlase treatment.
