Tired of losing sleep because someone next to you is snoring? Everyone snores on occasion, but trying to sleep next to someone who snores on a continual basis can be a disturbing problem resulting in relationship stress. Snoring may also be a sign of underlying obstructive sleep apnea which imposes some serious medical concerns such as hypertension, and increased risk of stroke and sudden cardiac death.
Our physicians are trained to evaluate each of our patients for safe and effective measures to help them find relief from their snoring. Many of our patients benefit from the Pillar Procedure. This office procedure involves placement of 3 Pillar implants into the soft palate at the back of the mouth as seen in the picture above. This takes approximately 20 minutes to complete using local anesthesia. Feel free to contact us or schedule an appointment for more information.
