Solea® Sleep Laser Treatment: Get Rapid Relief From Chronic Snoring

Solea® Sleep Laser Treatment: Get Rapid Relief From Chronic Snoring

While almost half of adults snore every once in a while, chronic snoring can have serious health consequences. Beyond keeping you and your partner from getting a restful night’s sleep, severe or ongoing snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea, which can increase your risk of conditions including high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke.

At RR Dentistry in Georgetown, Texas, our skilled providers help patients get rapid relief from chronic snoring with noninvasive Solea® Sleep laser treatment. This innovative procedure takes just five minutes to help you breathe easier and sleep better, with no post-surgery pain or downtime. Here’s how it works.

Why do I snore?

About 44% of men and 28% of women age 30 to 60 snore habitually. Snoring is the result of the relaxed tissue in your throat and soft palate partially blocking your airway and causing vibrations as you breathe during sleep. 

Certain factors can cause these tissues to relax excessively or too often and lead to chronic snoring, including:

Genetic factors may also play a role. If you have a family history of chronic snoring or sleep apnea, you’re more likely to develop it yourself. 

You can lower your risk by reducing your alcohol consumption, maintaining a healthy weight, and seeking treatment for the underlying cause of your snoring. 

How can laser treatment help?

Solea Sleep laser technology allows us to painlessly tighten the collagen fibers in your soft palate. This five-minute procedure opens your airway and minimizes the vibrations that cause snoring. Other benefits include:

Prior to your treatment, we apply a topical anesthetic to your soft palate to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Patients generally experience a gentle warming sensation or no sensation at all. 

There’s zero downtime after your Solea Sleep laser treatment, so you can resume all of your normal activities the same day. Some people experience minor tissue irritation after treatment; however, it typically subsides in less than 24 hours.

Results last for an average of 12 to 15 months as the elastic collagen fibers naturally relax over time. For long-term, consistent relief from snoring, we recommend Solea Sleep laser treatments once per year.

Reduce snoring in five minutes
