Laser technology has been increasingly utilized and valued in the medical field. Lasers have become a less invasive way to perform procedures in orthopedics, dermatology, plastic surgery and dentistry. Using medical lasers, treatment can be more accurate and require much less recovery time for the patient. With the help of a modern sleep dentist, dental lasers can even be used as a long-term solution for snoring and sleep apnea.

North Virginia Sleep Solutions proudly offers Nightlase as a proven non-surgical laser treatment to help reduce snoring and alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnea. In turn, this laser procedure could improve your overall sleep quality as well as your overall health.
