Fotona NightLase® is a non-invasive laser treatment used to treat snoring and sleep apnea so that you can get the rest you need and enjoy better overall health. This state-of-the-art solution works to reduce the effects of sleep apnea through a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect so that you can breathe easily and quietly while asleep.
Sleep apnea is a serious health condition which occurs when the airway is blocked and normal breathing is prevented. It is known to contribute to a variety of medical conditions if left untreated, including heart disease, depression, obesity, high blood pressure, daytime drowsiness and problems with the nervous, immune and digestive systems. Snoring also occurs as a result of a blocked airway, but may occur on its own or as a symptom of sleep apnea.
Our experienced dentist and team have chosen to offer Foton NightLase therapy as an alternative to traditional sleep breathing treatments such as CPAP and oral appliance therapy. NightLase works by inducing a gentle tightening effect on your oral tissues. By optimizing the length of laser pulses, the lasers can penetrate into the oral mucosa tissue to tighten it. The lasers used in your treatment are safe, precisely controlled and optimally delivered into the treatment area to provide you with an effective treatment. Your treatment will require three sessions over a six-week period to produce the best results.
Benefits of NightLase treatment include:
- A highly comfortable treatment
- A repeatable treatment
- Completely non-invasive
- No oral devices or chemical treatments are needed
- Fully customized to meet your unique needs
- Results which last up to a year
