If you are a snorer, you might have already tried many ways of addressing this problem but never considered going to a dentist! Many people don’t know that dentists can be trained to treat and resolve sleep issues.
There are plenty of over-the-counter, anti-snoring remedies and gadgets that are promoted as 100% effective, but they’re just NOT. Most people have heard of, and possibly tried a CPAP machine or over-the-counter products, and many still struggle with snoring. And it's super frustrating when you all you want in the world is a good sleep.
If you've lost weight, avoid drinking alcohol at night, and sleep in different "snore-proof" positions but you still sound like car engine at night, it's time to shift gears and seek support from your solea sleep/snoring treatment Calgary, SE dentist.
There are many types of snoring surgeries that involve the removal of excess tissue in the throat to widen the airway. This could involve removal of the uvula, part of the roof of the mouth (soft palate), excess throat tissue, tonsils, adenoids, and the pharynx.
Long recovery times and difficulty swallowing during the process is very common with these types of surgeries.
At Outdoor Dental, Dr. Jay Patel is a family, sleep-trained dentist who uses several effective treatments for snoring. Most snorers are palate snorers. For palate snoring, he uses Solea Sleep which is a specific non-surgical treatment to address snoring.
Using the Solea All-Tissue laser, Dr. Patel can administer a low-power application that provides rapid relief from snoring. The laser tightens the soft palate of tissue which reduces the vibrations that cause patients to snore. Some laser sleep treatments require as many as 4 – 30 minute sessions.
However, with Solea, Dr. Patel can provide you with a single non-surgical treatment that takes about 15 minutes to perform and delivers long-term results. This does not treat sleep apnea, and the treatment lasts 12-18 months depending on how long it takes for your collagen to regenerate.
Solea Sleep is different. It is a quick, relatively painless, non-surgical treatment using laser energy to disrupt collagen fibers in the tissue of the soft palate, causing collagen to contract and stiffen. These tightened tissue layers reduce the vibrations which produce snoring.
