A Better Night’s Sleep With NightLase
The use of lasers is quickly expanding in the field of dentistry, providing remarkable results for patients seeking all kinds of treatment. Our Basalt practice has adopted NightLase therapy for safe, precise snoring and sleep apnea treatment.
Drs. Van Gorden and Steinbach are excited to share the NightLase laser with our patients to discover clear obstructions in the throat that prevent them from achieving a good night’s sleep. Discover how we use laser therapy as an effective solution.
A Safe, Non-Invasive Approach
An alternative to CPAP and oral appliances, NightLase is a fast, comfortable laser treatment used to enhance your quality of sleep. It’s an easy and safe way to open space in your airway by shrinking down your oral tissue, allowing you to breathe properly at night.
Laser therapy offers a minimally-invasive alternative to treat snoring and sleep apnea without needing to wear a loud, bulky CPAP or oral appliance at night.

Treating Sleep Apnea With NightLase
NightLase requires a minimum of three sessions with 21 days in between each treatment. It’s an extremely safe solution given by our certified dentists — and there’s no surgical treatment involved. Laser therapy delivers satisfying results that can last for up to a year.
Treatments can be repeated after your required sessions, plus in some cases, you don’t need to wear a device while asleep. Patients experience little to no discomfort during treatment and begin to notice results right away.
