Pillar Procedure in NYC Corrects Snoring
POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2014 AT 7:23 PM by Dr. Mark Stein
Have you awoken after a full night’s sleep feeling exhausted? Does your partner complain of a restless night’s sleep because of your snoring? You may be experiencing the effects of a loose soft palate. A loose soft palate is a contributing factor for 4 out of 5 chronic snorers. During sleep, excessive tissue can collapse and leave pressure on the soft palate, this pressure causes vibrations resulting in loud snores. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we offer the Pillar Procedure, a technique that offers an 85% success rate in correcting snoring!
The Pillar Procedure stiffens your soft palate to reduce vibrations by placing tiny implants into your palate. These tiny implants are not visible and cannot be felt. In time, your body will form tissue around the implant, stabilizing your palate, eliminating vibrations, and correcting snoring. The Pillar Procedure is performed in-office, under local anesthesia, and only takes 20 minutes to complete. This minimally invasive procedure requires little downtime, and will not interfere with swallowing or speech.
Although some patients report seeing improvements as early as a few weeks, full results will not be seen for a few months. The results are definitely worth the wait! Patients will notice a snoring reduction up to 80% after the procedure, leading to a quieter, more restful sleep. The results from the Pillar Procedure are permanent.
