Sleep Apnea Laser

Laser Treatment for Snoring

Many people suffer from sleep apnea and are not aware of it. The primary symptom is snoring – either intermittently or continuously. The condition is caused by loose tissue in the back of the throat (soft palate) and can often be improved by tightening the tissue with this sophisticated laser.  Each treatment requires about 15 minutes and requires no anesthesia.

What causes snoring?

Snoring occurs when air is not able to move freely through your nose and mouth during sleep. This is due to a narrowing of your airway, which causes the tissues to vibrate and make an audible sound. In extreme cases the airway can become blocked which is known as obstructive sleep apnea. Many factors can contribute to snoring such as age, nasal and sinus problems, being overweight, alcohol, smoking, medications, and sleep posture.

What is the impact of snoring?

Snoring has a number of consequences that can impact the life of a snorer and his/her sleep partner. Sleep deprivation as a result of snoring has a negative impact on health and quality of life. Snorers can experience tiredness, morning headaches, irritability, dry mouth, and relationship difficulties. Studies have also shown a link between snoring and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke*.

What are the treatment options?

Most treatments for snoring attempt to keep the breathing passage open. Specially made dental appliances can be effective, but rely on daily compliance. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) systems are often used to help control sleep apnea and the snoring associated with it, however these devices can be very uncomfortable. There are surgical options available for correcting snoring which usually involve removal of tissue from the uvula and pharynx but these surgeries are invasive and can result in a lengthy and unconformable recovery period following the surgery.

How does Apnea Laser work?

Laser energy is used to heat the tissues of the airway causing a tightening effect which helps to keep your airway open. Apnea Laser is performed with approximately three short treatments spaced over two months. Each treatment lasts 15 minutes and requires no anesthesia. The procedure is comfortable and you can resume your daily routine immediately afterwards. Results are often seen after the first session.
