What causes snoring?
Snoring is as old as human the hills. It can be caused by a drooping and soft palate, but also by a different septum in upper air passages, e.g. a deformed nose septum dividing the nose into two passages. The other causes may be enlarged adenoid or small polyps in the nose that prevent good breathing as well as neurological problems. This results in the opening of the mouth in sleep and more or less loud snoring, which may result in so called- sleep apnea (complete stop of breathing for a short time without oxygen intake). If this problem is neglected, heart problems may occur after several years.
Transient snoring can also be caused by rhinitis/cold or fatigue. Because of the large amount of fat the obese people snore usually the greater part of the night, and it does not matter the position of the body. The solution is foremost a weight loss, which significantly improves the circulation system, decrease the bear down of the organism and breathing during the night and day is more deep – with a larger oxygen supply.
If the physician (otorhinolaryngologist) confirms an airway obstruction, considers whether or not to undergo an operational solution. Sometimes it is a long and complicated way to get a good result. Correct diagnosis is half the success.
By laser surgery, we can adjust the drop and slow down of the soft septum even without operational access.
Fotona NightLase® treatment is a patented, fast, non-operational and comfortable way for the client to improve sleep quality. The laser ray is gentle enough to be used on sensitive tissues in the mouth and strong enough to bring a clinical effect. Laser thermal energy heats and stimulates tissue consolidation in the oral cavity, reduces the symptoms of sleep apnea and reduces the volume of snoring due to collagen shrinkage in the soft palate.
Clinical research has demonstrated the safety and efficacy of this method with significant reductions of snoring.
You should undergo an examination by physician (otorhinolaryngologist), prior to this treatment.
What is the result of this method?
The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes and consists of 3 treatments within 6 weeks. The resulting effect lasts about 1 year and treatment can be repeated. Because it is non-invasive treatment, no special preparation is needed before the treatment itself. The client is able to eat, drink, talk and experience a mild sore throat for one to two days immediately after treatment.
Clients evaluate treatment as a very convenient and satisfactory solution.
