There are millions of people around the world who are facing snoring problems that prevent them from enjoying a good sleep. If snoring is keeping you and your partner up at night, there is a latest snoring treatment called “NightLase”. It is a non-invasive, patient-centric laser therapy that promotes quality sleep.
Additionally, it reduces the effects of sleep apnea and the amplitude of snoring using gentle laser light. There is no use of anesthesia in this treatment.

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring is a very common problem that can occur in individuals of any age. It may be caused by multiple factors. Snoring indicates that your airways are blocked which means something is preventing the airflow through the nose and mouth during sleep. This interruption is most common in the upper airway and may be caused by the soft palate, or excess flabby tissues in the throat.
The narrow throat causes the nearby tissues to hinder the airflow and causes sound. It comes as a rattling sound which is called snoring. However, there are a few other reasons for snoring too. Sometimes, it occurs due to nasal problems including, enlarged or blocked turbinates, sleeping position, and medications as well.

How Snoring Affects Your Health?

Snoring isn't totally innocuous, as it can cause genuine medical problems, also the troubles that can emerge in the relationship with your life partner who shares the bed with you.
Not getting a decent night's rest can decrease center, focus, and sharpness. Extraordinary instances of wheezing may demonstrate the presence of rest apnea. Rest apnea is a hazardous condition wherein the dividers of the throat slender during rest, prompting the interference of ordinary relaxing. Individuals with the condition are in danger of creating genuine medical problems, for example, high blood, diabetes, and coronary illness.

How Does NightLase Treatment Work?

It is a non-invasive treatment in which laser lights are used to heat the tissues to tighten them. It leads to more open airways thus easy breathing which results in little or no snoring at all. NightLase has a two-step procedure that includes Preheating and laser treatment. It hardly takes 30 to 40 minutes to complete the procedure and no anesthesia is required during the treatment.
Keep in mind that NightLase cannot cure the OSA, though it can reduce some effects. Besides this, there is no evidence to prove that it can improve blood oxygenation levels. If you suspect OSA, here at Advanced Dentistry by Design, we offer complete sleep apnea treatment based on your sleep study.
