Redundant parapharyngeal tissue reduces the size of the posterior airway, which increases the chance of obstruction during sleep. An elongated soft palate and enlarged uvula may further compromise the airway. Snoring is often associated with a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Not all snorers have OSA, but it must be evaluated by your primary doctor. Fotona’s NightLase®* therapy is a treatment targeted at snoring only.
Fotona’s NightLase®* therapy is a fast, patient-friendly and practically non-invasive treatment for snoring. It reduces snoring intensity with a gentle laser light treatment. It also can be used to help treat sleep apnea for patients who can’t tolerate CPAP or oral devices. NightLase can reduce the effects of and decrease the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle laser treatment of the mucosa tissue. There is no anesthesia needed for this procedure.
Fotona’s patented laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.
NightLase has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase can reduce and attenuate snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of snoring.
Better sleep is possible. Snoring reduction is possible. Call or text the office to see if the Fotona’s NightLase®* therapy is right for you!!
