NightLase® – Snoring and Sleep Apnea Treatment

If you find yourself snoring or grappling with sleep apnea, there’s a good chance that oral tissues in the back of your throat may be contributing to these conditions. Snoring occurs when soft tissues surrounding your airway vibrate, creating that distinctive snoring sound. Interestingly, snoring and sleep apnea are closely linked, with many snorers also experiencing sleep apnea. At Green Dental of Alexandria, we offer innovative and non-invasive solutions to address these concerns, including the revolutionary NightLase® snoring and sleep apnea treatment.

NightLase®: An Advanced Laser Treatment for Snoring and Sleep Apnea

NightLase® is a cutting-edge laser treatment designed to reduce snoring and enhance breathing during sleep. Individuals with obstructive sleep apnea often face airway blockages due to excess soft tissues in the back of the mouth and throat, contributing to both snoring and sleep apnea symptoms. NightLase® intervenes by tightening the oral soft tissues responsible for the vibrations and movements during sleep, effectively keeping the airway open for reduced snoring and improved breathing.

Simple, Safe, and Effective

NightLase® offers several benefits that make it a preferred choice for patients seeking relief from snoring and sleep apnea:

  • Non-invasive: The treatment is gentle and does not require any incisions or surgery.
  • Improves Sleep Quality: Patients often experience an enhancement in the overall quality of their sleep.
  • Easy to Perform: NightLase® can be performed by any doctor or dentist with ease.
  • Lessens Snoring and Sleep Apnea Effects: By addressing the oral soft tissues, NightLase® helps reduce snoring and mitigate the effects of sleep apnea.
  • Safe and Patient-Friendly: The procedure is safe, and patients find it comfortable with no downtime required afterward.

The NightLase® Procedure

NightLase® is a non-invasive laser treatment utilizing light energy to constrict oral tissues. Conducted at our state-of-the-art dental practice in Alexandria, VA, the procedure involves exposing the oral soft tissues to light energy, effectively tightening them. The treatment is painless, and patients can resume their daily activities without any downtime.

Before & After: See the Difference

NightLase® offers an effective therapy for snoring and sleep apnea, providing relief through a series of laser treatments. Typically, patients undergo three to four sessions spaced a few weeks apart to achieve the desired effects. Snoring can be reduced by 50% or more, and many patients report improvements in sleep apnea symptoms.

Jennifer B.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

Top shelf dental care. Convenient location via METRO/King Street Station. Patient's dental chair features back massage capability along with TV viewing (CNN). Dr. Hye Park is very smooth. Dental experience beyond compare. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now.

Once again, even the cleaning was uneventful. Love being able to look outside while I'm in the chair. Dr. Park has the most gentle & tiny hands ! Love this place and the staff.
