NightLase treatment is a quick, relatively painless, and minimally invasive process that helps improve your quality of sleep. It uses gentle, superficial laser light to cut down the effects of obstructive sleep apnea and makes snoring softer if not completely eliminating it.
At Madrid Dental in Rio Rancho, NM 87124, we understand the importance and health benefits of sleep and we work towards offering our patients the most innovative snoring treatments. By getting treated for your snoring symptoms, you can start seeing a positive impact on your productivity and general well-being.
What Is NightLase Treatment?
NightLase is a licensed laser procedure that helps to treat snoring. It is a non-invasive, simple, and effective way of eliminating or reducing snoring. During the process, laser energy is used to target the tissues of the airway that cause the tightening effect in the mouth passages. This results in tightening the muscles in the mouth and throat to allow the airways to open up. The warm effects created by the laser, which is around 43-47 degrees Celsius, prevent the collagen in the treated tissues from shrinking and consequently helps generate firmer collagen.
We can perform about three short sessions of NightLase planned over two months. Each session can take up to about twenty minutes, and the results are visible after the first session itself.
NightLase treatment is pain-free and does not require anesthesia. There is no recovery time involved, and patients are entirely comfortable during the process. They can resume normal activities immediately. When compared to snoring surgery and CPAP machine alternatives, NightLase snoring treatment provides a very cost-effective treatment option.
