What Is NightLase Therapy For Breathing Disorders?

Image of clear airways vs obstructed airwaysNightLase is a dental laser therapy that gently heats the tissues in your soft palate and throat with rapid, comfortable pulses that cause collagen to reorganize into a firmer form. This procedure helps to open the oral airway allowing more air and better breathing during sleep.

The technique has been used for several years in medical disciplines such as cosmetic surgery. When used on the face, for example, wrinkles are smoothed, and facial muscles tighten.

Is NightLase Therapy Painful?

You may feel warmth from the laser, but most patients report little to no discomfort during or after the treatment. And, the treatment is noninvasive, meaning there is no cutting or need for anesthesia.

How Many NightLase Therapy Treatments Will I Require?

Typically, three treatments, which take about 20 minutes, spread out over a month will get the desired results. The treatment lasts about one year, then further treatments may be needed to keep breathing disorders under control.
