A good night’s rest is the foundation for having a productive day. Unfortunately, many suffer from interrupted sleep as a result of snoring. It is believed that as much as 67% of the population snores. Among them, nearly 80% also suffer from sleep apnea. These conditions can deprive both you and your significant other of a restful sleep. Not only do snoring and sleep apnea interrupt sleep patterns, but they can also lead to potentially harmful effects, including diabetes and high blood pressure.
Thankfully, there is a non-invasive solution to help you combat snoring and sleep apnea for a better night’s sleep. At Rozenberg Dental NYC, Dr. Rozenberg offers the revolutionary NightLase snoring treatment in-office to reduce the effects of snoring and sleep apnea. Here’s what you need to know!
How Does NightLase Work?
NightLase uses laser technology to safely enlarge your airway and reduce the effects of snoring. Excess tissue, also known as a soft palate, may limit the amount of oxygen traveling through your airway, leading to vibrations that cause snoring. NightLase tightens oral tissue and stimulates collagen production around the airway, leading to an increase in the size of your airway; this allows more air to travel through, reducing snoring and sleep apnea.
How Many NightLase Treatments Do I Need?
Patients typically require a total of 3 NightLase treatments, spread out over 3 weeks. Each NightLase procedure lasts a half hour, on average! Dr. Rozenberg performs NightLase treatment in the comfort of her New York City office.
Is There Downtime?
Since NightLase is completely non-invasive, patients do not require anesthesia or surgery. Likewise, there is no recovery time required after undergoing NightLase treatment. Patients are free to return to their daily routine upon completing their snoring procedure. There are no restrictions on food or drink, thanks to NightLase’s non-laser technology.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?
NightLase can achieve up to a 70% reduction in the frequency and amplitude of your snoring. You can typically begin to see improvements in your snoring patterns within a few weeks of your NightLase procedure. Many patients experience results lasting up to 1-2 years before opting for another round of snoring treatment.
