Snoring is fairly common for human beings. Not everyone snores and not all snorers snore every night. Some snorers are quiet and some are very, very loud. Unfortunately, the snorer is often not disturbed by their own snoring where it typically falls to those affected by sleepless nights lying awake listening to the dull roar next to them, to seek a solution. In most cases snoring is not considered dangerous although a snorer is wise to seek advice on what it causing louder than usual slumber and whether their nighttime resonance could be a sign of impaired breathing or sleep apnoea. Both the later conditions affect the health of the snorer and in some cases can be high risk, so are worth checking with your doctor. (more…)
Periodontal or gum disease can be the result of poor oral health, a genetic predisposition or susceptibility, diabetes, smoking and some medications. It’s an infection of the gum tissue and bone structure that holds the teeth in place. Gum disease usually affects people in their 30s and 40s and if it is not treated you can lose some, if not all of your teeth. Gum disease is also linked to heart disease and stroke and premature birth.
If you have gum disease and have undergone treatment to clean the surfaces of your teeth and the roots that are hidden beneath your swollen gums, you will know that it’s not a very pleasant procedure. Maintenance is the key, but if you have let it slip for any length of time then calculus builds up and you are in for another uncomfortable session in the dentist’s chair.
So for sufferers of gum disease, news of a less invasive treatment that eliminates the need for scraping and drilling is reason to let out a big sigh of relief.

A Nine News crew came in to interview a patient and myself about the NightLase laser snoring treatment. They were interested to see whether it worked and spoke to one of our patients that had a successful treatment. After that I was interviewed about the treatment and how it works to stop snoring and help patients and their partners sleep better. They also got some footage of the laser in action. About 40 min of footage resulted in a 2 min segment. Enjoy!

Dr Pang was invited as a keynote speaker and asked to present his research and the latest findings regarding the NightLase laser treatment at the Laser and Health Academy Symposium in Bled, Slovenia. While a proven success for snoring, he has also found that the treatment benefits those with sleep breathing disorders such as Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome, hypopneas and apneas. Around 300 delegates attended the Symposium at the small European nation to hear about the latest advances in medical and dental lasers.
He was the only Australian speaker and the ONLY lecturer of over 100 presentations over 3 days to be asked to repeat it. He presented it again to a closed group of advanced users, experts, teachers, company president and Fotona ownership partners.

Dr Jason Pang was invited by Dr Derek Mahoney to speak at his mini-residency about the use of lasers on Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Increasing numbers of people are seeking treatment for snoring and sleep apnoea, yet many do not know that they can get help from dental practitioners. As a leader in the field of both laser and sleep dentistry, it was an opportunity for attendees to hear the latest developments in dental sleep medicine from Dr Pang. He presented the science and the results of various laser treatments for sleep disordered breathing. He showed not only the current research being done but also his own results as the first dental practitioner in NSW to do the patented NightLase treatment.
