Do you suffer from the effects of sleep apnea, such as waking up groggy with little to no energy, snoring that disrupts you and your partner’s sleep, and frustration from not getting a good night’s rest? Dr. Christopher Henninger has the solution.
Our team is proud to use the most up-to-date technology to give our patients the best care possible. With the Fotona Lightwalker, we can treat your sleep apnea in a way that’s safe, simple and effective
No Surgery, No CPAP, No More Snoring
Fotona NightLase therapy is a non-invasive laser treatment that will increase the quality of your sleep. With expert precision, the laser is directed toward the tissue in your mouth surrounding your airway that causes snoring.
Superficial heat penetration causes the tissue to tighten, removing obstruction from your airway. This lessens the volume of your snoring by as much as 50% after the first treatment.
In addition to being extremely effective, this treatment is also gentle enough to be used on sensitive tissue without adverse effects.
For people who are nervous about sleep apnea treatments, dentists frequently recommend holistic mouth exercises every day to gradually tighten the muscles surrounding the airway. NightLase tightens the muscles for you in a single session -- without the need for surgery, chemicals, or fitting appliances to wear while you sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is NightLase?
NightLase is a non-surgical laser treatment to reduce the symptoms of snoring and sleep apnea. The laser can tighten the muscles in your throat so they won’t relax too much and block your airway, a common cause of these disorders.
This treatment is non-invasive and doesn’t require any anesthesia because the procedure is painless. This is because the laser is simply stimulating the collagen in your muscles, so you won’t need to take time off for recovery either.
Is NightLase safe?
Yes, NightLase treatment is safe. It can greatly improve your sleep apnea or snoring symptoms without the need for invasive surgery. The procedure is painless and doesn’t require any recovery time, either.
The reason why NightLase is so safe is that the light from the laser is simply stimulating the collagen in your body to tighten your mouth and throat muscles. Tighter neck muscles are less likely to block your airway while you’re asleep.
Does laser treatment work for snoring?
Yes, laser treatment is effective for snoring. Snoring is often caused by excess neck tissue or muscles that relax in your throat while you sleep. Your muscles may be partially blocking your airway, leading to the sound of snoring.
Dr. Henninger may recommend you use an oral appliance alongside your NightLase treatment because the oral appliance will provide instant results. Sometimes, NightLase treatment can take several appointments to fully relieve symptoms.
