If you or someone you love deals with chronic snoring, you understand how disturbing it can be to getting a good night’s rest. However, there are solutions available to help patients who snore regularly, including treatments such as the Nightlase treatment available at Broadway Family Dentistry in Minot, North Dakota.
What is the Fotona Nightlase?
Patients who are considering a snoring solution that eliminates the need for an oral appliance might be interested in learning more about the Fotona Nightlase procedure. This treatment is a therapy that utilizes a non-invasive laser to improve the quality of an individual’s sleep when dealing with snoring or even obstructive sleep apnea. It not only reduces the symptoms of sleep apnea, but it can soften the sound of snoring. The laser light from the Fotona Nightlase device uses laser light to tighten the tissues in the mouth and improve collagen production for noticeable results! This procedure continues to be a popular way to reduce the sound of snoring while ensuring a deeper level of sleep that improves one’s quality of life.
How many treatments do I need?
Nightlase is not a “one and done” solution. It is recommended that patients undergo a series of three treatments to start. These treatments last approximately 20 minutes and are spread out over a 6 week period. The final results of treatment typically last anywhere from six to 12 months, though regular Nightlase treatments can be performed to maintain the results for an extended period of time. We strongly encourage patients to speak to one of our providers to determine the number of treatments needed based on the severity of their condition. We can make a recommendation after an evaluation and help you achieve your goals.
