Whats Fotona Nightlase Snoring Treatment
Is snoring keeping you up at night? Time for a good nights sleep for you and your partner. Fotona Nightlase Snoring Treatment is an intraoral laser treatment to effectively cure snoring. Doctors prefer it as a non-invasive solution to quality sleep without the risk of surgery nor the hassle of sleep devices.
How it works
Snoring occurs when turbulent airflow causes tissues of the nose and throat (the soft palate) to vibrate. This is a result of a narrow pharyngeal airway at some point in the nose, mouth or throat. To cure snoring, Fotona Nightlase Snoring Treatment aims to increase airway size and decrease tissue turbulence.
Fotona Nightlase Snoring Treatment is a gentle laser that heats the tissue at the back of the throat to allow air to flow more freely. The laser has a tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral musoca tissue. As the pharyngeal soft tissue contracts, the airway expands and vibrations of pharyngeal soft tissue are eliminated. This effectively reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring.
A full course of treatment entails three separate treatment sessions over a six-week period. The results can last up to a year and the therapy can be repeated after that.
Annoying your partner is not the only problem with snoring and sleep apnea. When you do not get quality sleep, you are likely to experience chronic daytime sleepiness, morning headache, fatigue, irritability and impaired concentration.
When left untreated, this could lead to complications such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and arrhythmia (Irregular heartbeat).

The diagram shown above depicts airway size. The closer the soft palate gets to the tongue, the smaller the airway and the greater potential for snoring. A class I airway is much more beneficial than class IV airway, for example. The goal of Nightlase snoring treatment is to increase airway size and decrease tissue turbulence. Going from a class IV to III, or from a class III to I would be considered successful treatment.
