Snoring Q & A

What is snoring?

Snoring is a hoarse sound that happens when air flows past relaxed tissues in your throat, causing them to vibrate during each breath. Snoring is common and happens to nearly everyone now and then, but ongoing or severe snoring can cause sleep problems for you, your partner, or both of you. Treatment with RR Dentistry helps reduce snoring. 

What are the risk factors for snoring?

Common risk factors for snoring include:

  • Genetics
  • Narrow airway
  • Being overweight
  • Nasal problems
  • Alcohol consumption before bedtime
  • Sleeping on your back
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Sleep apnea
  • Being a man

Ways to reduce your risk of snoring include maintaining a healthy body weight, avoiding alcohol before bed, sleeping on your side, and seeking treatment for sleep apnea. 

How can my dentist help reduce snoring?

Dental specialists at RR Dentistry use revolutionary Solea® Sleep laser treatment to provide rapid relief for people who snore. The treatment is a five-minute, noninvasive laser procedure that stimulates cell regeneration to reduce snoring without post-treatment pain or downtime.

What are the benefits of snoring treatment?

Some of the many benefits you can expect after snoring treatment with dental experts at RR Dentistry include:

  • Improved sleep quality 
  • Reduced snoring
  • More daytime energy
  • Mood improvements 
  • Less sleep apnea
  • No more morning sore throat
  • No more morning headaches
  • A better night’s sleep for you and your partner

Solea Sleep laser treatments help quickly and gently tighten collagen in your soft palate. This, in turn, reduces palate vibrations and opens up your airway. 

What should I expect during Solea Sleep treatment?

During Solea Sleep laser treatment at RR Dentistry, you relax while your dentist applies a topical anesthetic to your soft palate. This eliminates the potential for discomfort or gagging. You might not feel anything during laser treatment, or you could feel slight warming sensations. 

What happens after Solea Sleep treatment for snoring?

After each treatment, there’s no downtime, so you can resume a normal routine right away. You could experience minor tissue irritation for about 24 hours, however.

On average, Solea Sleep treatments last for about 12-15 months. To achieve long-lasting relief, your RR Dentistry specialist may recommend that you undergo Solea Sleep treatments about once a year.
