Sleep apnea occurs when the airway is blocked — usually by the tongue rolling back or the soft tissues of the throat collapsing. When left untreated, it can contribute to a broad range of medical and psychological problems that impact your health and quality of life. Our skilled dentists may recommend NightLase and SnoreLase therapy as an alternative to treatment such as oral appliances or CPAP devices.
NightLase® & SnoreLase
These treatments work by applying a laser to the soft tissues of the throat, heating and tightening them so that they remain open while you sleep and allow you to breathe easily. Your laser treatment will require three sessions over a period of six weeks for you to receive the full benefits of your care.
Some advantages of NightLase and Snorelase include:
- Results that last up to a year
- A repeatable treatment
- Enhanced comfort
- Completely non-invasive treatment
- Fully customized treatment to meet your needs
We may recommend Smoothlase therapy if you have loose tissues in and around your mouth. Smoothlase therapy can treat aged skin with mild to moderate wrinkles, smoothing out the texture of your skin for a more youthful and energized appearance. Because Smoothlase tightens skin in and around your mouth, you may also experience an improvement in sleep apnea symptoms caused by loose oral tissues.
