Dr. Rice’s Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. The NightLase procedure reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue. If you can’t wear your CPAP and if Oral Appliances make your jaw sore, this may be the solution for you. Not only will your airway be more open at night, but during the day for your optimum health. A complementary sleep consultation with Dr. Rice will let you explore your options to see if NightLase is right for you.
NightLase Anti-Snoring Non Surgical Procedure
Simple, Safe and 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 is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating. Research has shown that NightLase reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea. An oral device can help keep your tongue forward so that your throat is open and there is no snoring.
A Patient Friendly Solution
A full course of NightLase consists of three separate treatment sessions, 21 days apart over a six-week period. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, and the therapy can be repeated. Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way for patients to regain a good night’s rest. There is little discomfort and many patients have said they don’t even notice having the device in place.
