On average, sleeping partners of snorers get an hour less sleep each night. That’s an average. For some people, it is much, much worse. In the worst cases, the snorer can be banished to the far reaches of the home so the sleeping partner, as well as other members of the household, can get a decent night’s sleep. That is no way to live. The Snoring Center treats thousands of patients each year, predominantly through minimally invasive procedures that combat the true causes of snoring. What are these causes?
The anatomy of the mouth frequently determines a propensity for snoring. A low, thick soft palate can narrow the airway and lead to snoring. This can be exacerbated by being overweight which can lead to extra tissue in the back of the throat. Likewise, nasal problems, such as chronic congestion or a deviated septum also can lead to, or increase the severity of, snoring.
The Snoring Center utilizes advanced, minimally invasive techniques to address the physiological cause(s) of the snoring problem. Our approach is rational, measured and focused on long-term relief from snoring…not just a quick, temporary fix. In many cases, our board certified physicians can diagnose a patient’s snoring problem and provide treatment in less than one hour.
The in-office treatments we offer address several different causes of snoring. These treatments include:
- Pillar Procedure
- Turbinate Coblation
- Palate Coblation
- Laser Tonsillectomy
- Home Sleep Study
- Oral Appliances
Snoring should never destroy a personal relationship, especially since it can normally be treated effectively within minutes. If you are problem snorer, give yourself the give of good health and rejuvenating sleep. Give your sleeping partner the gift of well-deserved sleep. Take the stress out of your relationship.
