We are not designed to dependent on a piece of plastic covering the teeth or a tube forcing air into the body to be able to sleep and breathe at night,.
RestOralase Therapies are designed to assist your body in overcoming obstacles without solely depending on surgeries or mechanical support for you to breathe well and receive restorative sleep. By addressing the root causes of sleep dysfunction, RestoraLase is a therapeutic intervention carefully designed to help the patient feel better immediately by addressing the symptoms while simultaneously actively addressing the root causes of sleep disordered breathing.
The goal of combination therapy with RestoraLase is to address the multiple contributing factors to sleep disordered breathing. These factors include:
NINJA is an acronym for Neurologically Integrative NIghttime Jaw Advantage Appliance (also known as the ALF NLA) Much like the Ninja warrior, it is highly effective, sleek and almost invisible to the observer while being comfortable for the patient.
This highly sophisticated applaince covers the front 8-10 teeth on the upper jaw and prevents the molar teeth from contacting. By providing balance to the bite and freedom for the tongue and the 8-10 upper front teeth while stimulating the brainstem neurology and breathing reflexes, it provides gentle neurological support while slightly changing the jaw joint position to get an advantage that many bulky and uncomfortable nightguards often fail to acheive.
The NINJA appliance is not recommended for patients diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea as the definitive treatment for the condition, but it can be a great complimentary therapy to reach maximal medical improvement when used in conjunction with appliances designed primarily to support the airway, The NINJA is a great option for patients who clench and grind their teeth, with mild temporomandibular joint disorder or for those who suffer from headaches or migraines.
The dorsal appliance was originally created by Dr. Darick Nordstrom and has evolved into the appliances used by many dentists to address the effects of snoring and sleep apnea.. The RestOralase mandibular advancement appliance includes some specific design modifications to make it cranially friendly and is customized for the needs of the patient through a oral neuromyofuncitonal positioning process facilitated by the RestoraLase therapies.
The Nordic Positioner is a soft, relsilient and comfortable appliance designed to meet the needs of the patient whose diagnosis and treatment plan includes treatment for the Trigeminal Cardiac Reflex . It is also a great choice for patients who have been undergoing ALF Therapy or orthodontic therapy as a functional retainer while supporting the airway.
RestOralase is similar to the popular technique called NightLase for addressing the effects of snoring on sleep disordered breathing. Even though the technology utilized to deliver the laser energy to the head and neck is similar to the popular Nightlase procedure, RestOralase is very different in its approach and technique. RestOralase is based on decades of use and development by Dr. Darick Nordstrom in the context of understanding the complex and sophisticated relationships between the oral environment and emotional system as well as the implications of trauma and inflammation on neurological function and sleep quality. By combining the stimulation of laser therapies with the support of customized oral appliance therapy, we can get the best of both worlds of acheiving better function by improving both form and function.
A full course of RestOralase consists of between three and seven separate treatment sessions over a ten week period. The final results of the treatment are carefully monitored through several forms of sleep screening and diagnostic tools. Therapy is customized for the needs of the patient and is continued based on the treatment response and patient requests.
Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.
Fotona’s patented Er:YAG laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.
NightLase has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.
A full course of NightLase consists of three separate treatment sessions over a six week period. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, and the therapy can be repeated.
Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way for your patients to regain a good night's rest.
