Safely Eliminate Your Snoring
Snoring throughout the night can not only make it difficult for your partner to sleep, but it also lowers the quality of your sleep, increases your chances of developing bad breath, and puts you at a higher risk for certain health conditions. If you or a loved one snores heavily, you may be a candidate for NightLase® laser snore therapy.
This safe, non-invasive, and patient-friendly laser treatment option can greatly improve and possibly eliminate snoring. Learn more about the benefits this technology has to offer by reading our helpful guide below.
How Does NightLase® Work?
NightLase laser snore therapy utilizes patented LightWalker® laser technology. This precision laser provides Dr. Lawrence with the ability to moderate the length of each laser pulse emitted by the machine. This allows for the safe penetration of heat into the oral tissue.
The light emitted by the NightLase system is gentle enough for use on oral tissue, but strong enough to provide clinically effective heating that strengthens oral tissue.
This treatment can also reduce the effects of sleep apnea by tightening the collagen in the oral tissue at the back of the throat. This enables the airway to remain open throughout the night, thereby preventing any obstruction to a patient’s breathing.
When is Laser Snore Therapy Necessary?
While loud snoring isn’t always a sign of a bigger problem, it may be putting a strain on your heart and circulatory system. Snoring occurs when there’s a blockage in your airways, which delivers less oxygen to your lungs. This may lead to further complications such as heart disease if left untreated.
Snoring can also interfere with your and your partner’s sleep. Routinely losing sleep may lead to arguments or loss of intimacy. For the sake of you and your partner’s sleep quality and your relationship, it may be worth it to look into laser snore therapy.
Snoring may be an indicator of sleep apnea. If you snore heavily throughout the night and experience fatigue or moodiness during the day, contact our McKinney office at (972) 542-9129 so Dr. Lawrence can assess your situation and provide you with the care you need.
