A complimentary sleep consultation with Dr. Rice will let you explore your options to see if NightLase is right for you.

Anti-Snoring Non-Surgical Procedure
Simple, Safe, & Effective
Fotona’s patented Er:YAG laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It’s gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth and strong enough to provide clinically powerful heating.
NightLase reduces excessive snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea. It opens more space in your airway, allowing you to breathe properly. When combined with an oral device, patients have reported having no signs of snoring.
With NightLase therapy, patients are able to sleep soundly throughout the night and feel energized the next morning.
