Stop snoring with laser surgical therapy

The snoring originates from the vibration of the mucosa of the upper airways and the resulting sound. This is caused by partially blocked airflow during sleep . Sometimes there may be a noise just mentioned but in other cases it may reach levels of volume - and therefore noise - very high.

Snoring - as difficulty in breathing - does not allow the patient to rest biologically well and disturbs the sleep of those who are near . The phenomenon is not exhausted in disorder generic but represents a real risk factor for diseases also very serious . The habitual snorer / is subject to several chronic disorders such as daytime drowsiness, irritability , trouble concentrating , and decreased libido .

LAUP (Laser-Assisted Uvuloplatoplasty)

This intervention is aimed at the reduction of tissue present in the upper airways. In this way, it eliminates or drastically reduces air friction during breathing at night. The laser technology has made the surgery much less invasive and free of complications.
The Medical Laser for about 20 years successfully performs this technique of laser surgery. Thousands of patients due to uvulofaringopalatoplastica by laser have solved their problem of snoring and often found the serenity of the couple that night-time noise compromised .

Snoring: Sleep apnea
Among the negative factors of snoring are the syndrome of ' sleep apnea , frequent and temporary interruptions of breathing during sleep that involve frequent awakenings during the night ( or at least a bad sleep ) but also a systematic and insufficient oxygenation.
