Snoring in Minutes
Snoring is a common sleeping condition that many Canadians face. In fact, as many as 41% of Canadians snore regularly—that’s almost 12 million people!
While many of us might not think of snoring as a health issue, it can have some serious effects on your overall quality of life. Snoring can lead to fatigue, headaches, concentration problems, or even high blood pressure over time. Not only that, partners and anybody who sleeps nearby can also have trouble falling asleep because of snoring.
If you’re looking for a way to silence your snoring and enjoy a more restful, rejuvenating sleep, Elevate Dental may be able to help. Using a modern laser treatment known as Solea Sleep, we can treat specific oral areas responsible for your snoring in minutes.

What Is Solea Sleep?
Most snoring is caused by overly relaxed throat, tongue, and mouth muscles that obstruct your airway while you sleep.
Solea Sleep is a laser treatment that targets and tightens collagen in your mouth to help prevent it from relaxing too much while you sleep, reducing how much you snore. While Solea Sleep isn’t a sleep apnea treatment, it could help manage snoring symptoms related to apnea and possibly improve your quality of sleep.
Is It Right for You?
Depending on whether you have sleep apnea or just struggle with snoring, we may recommend a combination of Solea Sleep and our Vivos sleep apnea appliance. In some cases, we may have you take our Home Sleep Test so we can monitor your sleeping habits and tailor a treatment appropriate to your needs.
Our mission is to help you achieve comfortable, healthy breathing while you sleep and reduce the risk of developing health issues related to poor quality sleep.
How Long Is the Procedure?
Solea Sleep is a simple procedure that can take as little as 5 minutes to complete. During the treatment, your dentist will target palate muscles responsible for snoring to tighten the collagen and help prevent it from vibrating while you sleep.
Is There Pain?
Solea Sleep is a relatively pain-free treatment with no downtime, but you may experience some irritation or soreness in treated areas for a few days.
If you’re concerned about gagging, we can help by offering an anesthetic to keep you relaxed.
What Are the Results?
Solea Sleep should deliver immediate results that last up to 12 to 15 months. We may recommend a follow-up treatment during that time as collagen naturally loosens after a while, meaning your snoring symptoms could return.
Alongside snoring, Solea Sleep could help reduce or even eliminate:
- A consistently sore throat
- Daytime fatigue
- Memory and concentration problems
- Morning headaches
On top of this, Solea Sleep can also help your partner and family enjoy a quieter, more restful sleep!
Solea Laser Treatment Goes Beyond Snoring Problems
Solea Sleep isn’t the only treatment from Solea that we use. Solea laser technology can also help comfortably remove tooth decay and prevent certain oral health problems from developing.

OUR GOOGLE REVIEWS
I had an accident that resulted in a cracked tooth and a lot of pain. They saw me the same day I called and came in the next day, on a closed day on a long weekend, to fix it! Great staff ( thank you Cindy and Sherry) and Dr Hakkaarrt was very thorough in her assessment and repair of my injury. She is the best at giving freezing needles that I ever experienced. I would give 6 stars if I could. Thank you to you all for your help.
Dr. Krystal is excellent! I highly recommend her and her team to everyone who is looking to keep their teeth where they should be.
I desperately needed to get out of pain. There are no words to describe how WONDERFUL my experience with Dr. Krystal and her staff! Greeted with respect, dignity and a deep desire to provide the best possible care for her patients and their many, diverse needs. Having neglected myself and my teeth comes the my own challenges and going to the dentist is quite a daunting challenge to say the least. Patience, persistence, and perseverance is what it takes with each individual and Dr. Krystal and her staff come through with flying colors! Alway’s warm and welcoming and not satisfied until their patient is happy with whatever work may have been needed! My gratitude for this dentist and her staff goes beyond the stars! There is no other dentist I would go to or recommend! When you find the best, you keep it!
