In the case of OSA, it’s typically a blockage in the throat. Excessive oral tissue is often the culprit of loud snoring and apnea-related symptoms, and the Nightlase treatment from Fontona is one of the best methods out there for relieving your sleep problems.

What is Nightlase Snoring and Apnea Treatment?

The Nightlase dental treatment is a comfortable, effective, and non-invasive method of removing excess oral tissue from the mouth, ensuring that healthy and consistent sleep can occur. The Fontona’s Nightlase option is gentle and superficial while working to lessen the effects of sleep apnea and decrease the amount of snoring that occurs during sleep.

What makes Nightlase different? With this treatment, you can expect:

While Nightlase treatment is perfect for sleep apnea symptoms, other treatments with the Fotona Lightwalker can also be performed. For example, Smoothlase, Liplase, and Necklase can be used to safely and effectively correct imperfections to improve your appearance. We can also use our laser to perform pediatric fillings for young and sensitive patients without anesthetic as well as periodontal treatment for those in need of gum therapy.

How Does Treatment Work?

Treatment is broken down into four 45-minute-long visits that are completed 21 days apart. It normally takes between 3-5 visits for the soft tissues to tone, tighten and shrink. This ensures that the oral tissue has time to heal in between appointments. During your visit, you can expect us to perform two specific steps.

The first step is known as preconditioning and works to preheat the tissue to prepare it for treatment. During the second step, the laser light strengthens the tissue that’s there. As you begin to notice your sleep symptoms eroding, we’ll know that it’s time for another treatment.

Does Nightlase Actually Work?
