Bio Dental, a long-established dental practice in North Providence, Rhode Island, now provides the Fotona LightWaker state-of-the-art, non-surgical laser technology treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. NightLase, one of its several innovative applications, uses laser energy to non-surgically shrink and rejuvenate the soft palate and uvula and other oral pharyngeal tissues which if enlarged or flaccid are the most common causes of snoring.

This treatment, which significantly enhances sleep quality, is usually performed in three or four 15-minute sessions in two months. The procedure is comfortable and without anesthesia, and daily routines can resume immediately afterwards. Results are often seen after the first session.

About 57 percent of men, 40 percent of women and 27 percent of children snore in the U.S. According to U.S. census data, over 70 million men, over 50 million women and almost 20 million children snore.

Owner and CEO Dr. Candida Castillo, a certified biological and holistic dentist, earned biological certifications through the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine and the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. She is committed to raising awareness of the oral overall health connection and biological dentistry.
