If you’re part of the 67% of adults who snore, it’s highly likely to be affecting you, your partner, or your family. Left untreated, snoring can have major effects on physical and mental health and has the possibility to get worse with age or weight gain. There are different types of snoring and snores, all of which can be rectified or managed with different treatments.
Here at Luxury Dentistry NYC, Dr. Steven Davidowitz treats snoring patients and undertakes consultations with patients to help them understand what is causing their sleeping, as well as which treatments may work best for them, such as Oral Appliance Therapy for sleep apnea. In addition to this, we offer Solea® Sleep Laser Therapy, which is a non-surgical, quick, and comfortable laser treatment that provides rapid relief for some snorers.
Snoring occurs when air flows past the tissues in the throat and mouth during sleep, producing that unmistakable and irritating sound. Causes of this sound include:
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.
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.
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.

If you are struggling with snoring or causing disturbance to those around you, it is time to make the first step in getting better sleep and improving your health.
