Leading the dental industry, the Fotona LightWalker® is a laser that features a full range of hard and soft tissue treatments. It’s known for its precision and superior outcomes, all while offering operating modes that are easy to select for greater simplicity. Treatments include Fotona’s NightLase® therapy, a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.

Fotona’s patented Er:YAG laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.

NightLase is easy for any doctor or dentist to perform and has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase is an effective treatment that reduces snoring in a non-invasive and comfortable way.

The average full course of NightLase consists of three separate treatment sessions over a period of only six weeks. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, and the therapy can be repeated.
Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way for patients to regain a good night’s rest.

Editor’s call to action
Besides laser treatment to reduce snoring, lasers can offer less pain, clean surgical margins, and less bleeding for a frenectomy. Check out “CO2 laser functional frenectomy” here. https://dentalsleeppractice.com/case-report/co2-laser-functional-frenectomy/.
