How can snoring be treated?
Different types of snores are treated in various manners, depending on the individual cause of the patient’s snoring. In some cases, instances of snoring can be rectified by personal treatments such as losing weight, stopping smoking, reducing alcohol intake, or changing sleeping positions. In other cases, surgery is needed to correct deviated septums or enlarged tonsils.
However, approximately 80% of people who snore are “palatal” or mouth snorers, and one of the treatments available to correct this type of snoring is Solea Sleep Laser Therapy.
What are the benefits of Solea Sleep Laser Therapy?
Solea Sleep Laser Therapy is a laser snoring treatment that needs no anesthetics or surgical input, has no downtime and very little discomfort. It works by using an ultra-low energy laser to tighten and stiffen collagen in the soft palate, which reduces the vibrations that cause snoring. Patients see results for a year or more after just one 5-15 minute treatment.
The SnoreLab app
We recommend the SnoreLab app to our NYC patients to help them recognize when they snore, how frequently, and how loudly. It gives users a high or low score depending on the severity of their snoring and provides insights on snoring remedy options.
