Nightlase in Cherry Hill is a fast, non-invasive technique using targeted laser dentistry treatment to increase the quality of a person's sleep by addressing snoring and sleep apnea problems. Specifically, it uses a specially designed handpiece to warm, condition, strengthen, tighten, and shrink the parapharyngeal (throat) tissues that cause snoring and sleep apnea, reducing or even eliminating sleep difficulties.


What Is Nightlase?

The purpose of Nightlase is to increase the quality of your sleep if you snore enough to bother you or your sleep partner or have been diagnosed as having sleep apnea via a sleep study. A course of treatment is generally composed of 3 sessions with 3 weeks between them and a follow-up visit one month later. Treatment visits are approximately 30 minutes each, and the results can last up to a year.

Although you can still wear intraoral appliances or use a CPAP after getting Nightlase, this is an independent procedure, and it’s especially helpful for those who cannot (or will not) use a CPAP or oral appliances.

How Does Nightlase Work?

The Fotona LightWalker Laser used for Nightlase gently heats the soft palate, uvula, anterior surrounding tissues in your throat and alongside your tongue which have been restricting your airway when you are lying down. The warming causes collagen remodeling while laser light stimulation causes the formation of "new youthful collagen" in those tissues, resulting in immediate tightening of the treated connective tissues and muscles. It is the toning of the throat tissues around the pharynx which helps hold the airway open.

When the shrinkage and tightening occur, snoring (vibration of the soft, floppy throat tissues when air passes between the tongue and soft palate) is reduced or stopped. The airway is now more open for both nasal and mouth breathing, aiding snorers and sleep apnea patients.

When you or your sleeping partner notice the effects beginning to dissipate, i.e. snoring and sleep apnea become worse, it usually only takes one treatment to retighten the soft palate, uvula, and sides of the anterior throat area. No general or local anesthesia is needed, only a spray topical anesthetic. We recommend a collagen booster every 6 months to maintain your treatment.
