Getting enough high-quality sleep on a regular basis is essential to maintaining good health, high energy levels, optimal brain function, and a stable mood… ask me how I know. Unfortunately, getting a good night's sleep is often easier said than done - especially if you or your partner struggles with snoring.
If snoring is disrupting your sleep (and your household's) or keeping you awake at night, Solea Sleep might be a good treatment option.
Solea Sleep is a revolutionary treatment that helps reduce or eliminate snoring.
Solea Sleep is designed to address mouth or palatal snoring that occurs due to the relaxation of the soft palate's tissues which happens with the natural breakdown of collagen. As these tissues, which are located toward the back of the mouth, relax over time, they can vibrate with breaths drawn inward and expelled outward during sleep. This vibration is responsible for 80% of snoring.
Solea Sleep is a five-minute, simple, warm, and non-invasive laser treatment that targets the soft tissues of the palate with a specific wavelength of laser light. The laser works quickly and gently to tighten collagen fibers within the treatment area. This helps tighten the tissues and open the airway, reducing the vibrations that cause snoring and related sleep disturbances.
Treatment with Solea Sleep offers several benefits including:
Plus, Solea Sleep is non-invasive, causes no pain, and results in zero downtime after the procedure. This is revolutionary compared to alternative snoring treatments that rely on traditional surgical procedures.
While Solea Sleep can help to reduce snoring, a common side effect of sleep apnea, it is not a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, or complex sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a complicated sleep disorder that requires additional diagnosis and comprehensive treatment that depends upon the type of disorder present.
Prior to a Solea Sleep procedure, our dentist administers a quick, anesthetic spray to the targeted treatment area. This provides thorough numbing and prevents patients from experiencing any pain or discomfort during their treatment. Some patients report feeling a slight warming sensation during treatment, but most experience no sensation at all.
After the anesthetic wears off, some patients experience some minor soreness at the treatment area that can last for about 24 hours.
Solea Sleep delivers substantial results after one five-minute treatment session, however we like to follow up within 3-4 weeks to see how things are going and for a second round of treatment or touch up. These results tend to last an average of 12 to 15 months, as the patient's collagen fibers naturally begin to re-relax with time. To enjoy effective, long-lasting results with no return of sleep-disturbing symptoms, we recommend that patients schedule one Solea Sleep treatment per year. This will help to prevent the relaxation of the soft palate's collagen fibers for consistently reduced or eliminated snoring.
