There are many people that snore during the night, and this is something that not only impacts on their quality of sleep but also on that of their loved ones. Those that snore on a regular basis often do so due to sleep apnea. This is a condition in which the muscles of the throat become very relaxed and as a result, block the airways and cause an obstruction.
Fortunately, at Carnegie Dental, we have a solution that can provide you and your partner with relief from sleep apnea and the snoring that comes with it. Learn more during a consultation with our qualified team in Victoria, BC!
How Can Laser Treatment Help?
If you want help to ease the effects of sleep apnea and reduce snoring, one of the options is through a laser treatment called NightLase. This is a non-invasive treatment that has proven to be very effective when it comes to snoring caused by sleep apnea.
How Does It Work?
The way in which this laser treatment works to reduce snoring caused by sleep apnea is very simple. This treatment involves gently heating the tissue at the back of your throat, causing tissues to tighten. As a result of this, your airways do not become obstructed by relaxed throat muscles, so you are less likely to snore.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
Treatment sessions are typically short and require less than half an hour. Because this is a painless and non-invasive treatment, you will not require any anesthesia, and there is no recovery time involved. To fully experience the results of this sleep apnea treatment, a series of treatments will likely be required, and our team in Victoria can help develop the plan best for you!
How Quickly Can Results Be Seen?
Although the treatment is given in several sessions, many people see results after just one session. This means that you can start to enjoy better quality sleep after the very first treatment with NightLase!
