Snoring Q & A

What causes snoring?

Snoring involves airway obstruction that causes you to make snorting sounds when you sleep. It might result from:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Mouth anatomy
  • Genetic factors
  • A deviated septum
  • Poor sleeping positions
  • Sleep deprivation

Risk factors for snoring include obesity, family history of snoring, being male, older age, having a wide neck or narrow airways, sinus problems, and alcohol consumption. Simple snoring treatments are available at Rozenberg Dental NYC to offer you relief.

What are the symptoms of snoring and sleep apnea?

If you snore regularly or suffer from sleep apnea, you might experience the following signs or symptoms.

  • Paused breathing during sleep
  • Morning headaches
  • Excessive tiredness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • A sore throat upon waking up
  • Disrupting your partner's sleep
  • Restless sleep or insomnia
  • Chest pain at night
  • Choking or gasping for air during sleep

Complications associated with snoring and poor sleep quality include frustration, daytime sleepiness, learning problems in children, an increased risk of motor vehicle accidents, and an elevated risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and heart problems. 

What is NightLase?

NightLase is a noninvasive laser treatment that uses superficial laser energy to reduce snoring intensity and other symptoms of sleep apnea. 

Gentle, laser-induced heat and tightening occur when collagen contracts in targeted tissues. NightLase is safe and effective with extremely high success rates.

Is NightLase snoring treatment right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for NightLase, Dr. Rozenberg meets with you for an evaluation. She reviews your medical and dental history, asks about symptoms, and discusses your desired outcome. Dr. Rozenberg completes an exam and may take X-rays to let you know if the procedure is right for you.

What happens during the procedure?

During NightLase treatment for snoring, Dr. Rozenberg uses a hand-held laser device to heat tissues in your soft palate and throat. You may feel a soft, gentle warming sensation. 

The procedure is painless, takes about 30 minutes, and there’s no downtime associated with it. You can resume normal everyday activities right away after treatment.

Dr. Rozenberg might recommend a series of several treatments spaced over a six-week period. There are no risks associated with NightLase, and final results can last up to a year or longer.
