Many people experience heavy breathing or snoring while they sleep. A lot of times they do not know when it is time to seek help from a professional. If you or your partner have interrupted sleep due to breathing or snoring, then Snoring Laser Care may help solve your snoring issues.
Snoring and sleep apnea can cause health issues if left untreated. Snoring is a common problem, and can affect a person at any age or stage of life. Snoring is a sign that something is causing the air to not flow properly through the nose and mouth. When this happens, vibration occurs from loose tissue, and that sound is snoring.
Snoring can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. If sleep is interrupted, it can affect a person’s ability to focus during the day and can cause exhaustion.
Snoring Laser Care offers a state of the art laser treatment for snoring called NightLase. is a gentle, non-invasive laser treatment for snoring and sleep apnea. The heat from the laser is able to modify the oral mucosa tissue, causing tightening in the throat. This tightening then helps to open up the airway. In some cases if the snoring is caused by a floppy soft palate, NightLase can reduce the vibration of the palate, and help to minimize snoring.
The process usually lasts approximately 30 minutes. Patients can have the procedure in office with no need for anesthesia. NightLase usually requires a minimum of 3 treatments where patients can see results immediately.
Benefits of NightLase include:
- Uninterrupted sleep
- Better quality of life
- Less risk of more complicated health issues
- Pain is minimal
Recovery is minimal with NightLase. Patients may experience a minor sore throat for a few days after each procedure. A soft food diet may be recommended to help heal the throat during recovery. Overall, most patients can go back to leading a normal healthy life quickly after the procedure.
