Snoring – which afflicts as many as 90 million American adults – is caused because of some sort of obstruction of the airway, usually due to the soft palate. Rather than treat the symptoms, go after the root cause with the QuietNite laser treatment. We can reduce or even eliminate airway obstruction caused by the soft palate, letting you get back to having a good night’s sleep fast.
If the tissues of the soft palate become too long or loose, the soft palate can drop over the airway when deep sleep occurs, causing snoring. QuietNite tightens the oral mucosa tissues of the soft palate. This causes the soft palate to raise enough to reduce or eliminate the obstruction, allowing you to sleep peacefully throughout the night.
How is it possible for the QuietNite laser treatment to not require any kind of anesthetic?
QuietNite combines revolutionary laser technology with the advantages of CO2, which seals nerve endings and blood vessels, provides instant sterilization against bacterial infection, and reduces the body’s natural inflammatory response. This makes for reduced swelling, no need for sutures, and faster healing. And with ideal penetration depth, the QuietNite laser is the gentlest and most precise laser on the market for the sensitive tissues of the soft palate.
Does insurance cover QuietNite? Do you provide financing?
Laser treatment for snoring is covered by some insurance companies! But since QuietNite is a simple laser treatment that doesn’t require a hospital stay, many patients find that it’s very affordable even without insurance. CareCredit and Sunbit are available financing options.
Are there age limits or ranges in which QuietNite best functions? Would this treatment work for pediatric sleep apnea?
QuietNite treats an area of the body – the soft palate – to help reduce the snoring caused by obstructive sleep apnea, so it isn’t targeted at a particular age group. But since it’s painless and works so quickly, it’s entirely appropriate as a treatment for pediatric sleep apnea.
Are there side effects?
The most frequent side effect is a sore throat, which generally goes away the second day after treatment.
If you or your partner is suffering from sleep apnea, the best long-term approach is to go after the root cause of the airway blockage. Making lifestyle changes like quitting smoking and losing weight can do a lot to reduce or eliminate obstructive sleep apnea.
However, many cases of OSA can’t be reversed with lifestyle changes. With that in mind, QuietNite can be a viable alternative to addressing the symptoms or underlying causes so that you can stop snoring and go back to getting a good night’s sleep.
