A full night's sleep is essential to your overall health. If you're well rested, you feel good and can function at your best. According to statistics, approximately 25 million adults in the United States suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, and more than three times that number snore. At the office of Sweet Tooth Dentistry, we provide the skilled and experienced care required to help patients enjoy a safe and uninterrupted night's sleep.
You can feel confident that your treatment is in the best of hands. Our professional team maintains a position at the forefront of innovations in technology and offers leading-edge solutions to protect your overall health and well-being. NightLase® therapy represents the most advanced non-surgical and non-invasive way to tighten the tissues at the airway entrance, thereby attenuating the symptoms of sleep apnea and reducing snoring.
As gentle and precise laser pulses are applied to the soft tissue mucosa at the back of the mouth, the collagen fibers restructure and contract, making the upper airway firmer and less prone to collapse. This safe method of care helps the airway remain open and patent throughout the night. Among the many benefits of NightLase® treatment is that it offers a quieter, more restful, and restorative night's sleep without an oral appliance.
Treatment with NightLase® therapy typically involves three separate treatment sessions over two months. With a very high success rate and results that can last up to a year, treatment can be repeated to provide ongoing improvements in sleep quality and the reduction of snoring.
At the office of Sweet Tooth Dentistry, we remain dedicated to helping patients enjoy the benefits of excellent oral health and providing care that supports their overall well-being. For more information on NightLase® therapy and the many other services we provide, give us a call today.
