Silence Snoring With The Pillar Procedure
POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 03, 2014 AT 6:14 PM by Dr. Mark Stein
Do you get 8 hours of sleep a night but still wake feeling exhausted? Do your loved ones complain of your disruptive, chronic snoring? Has the lack of a restful sleep affected your performance at school or work? You may be experiencing symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that plagues over 12 million Americans. This illness is a sleep disorder that causes a pause in breathing when airways are obstructed. Sleep apnea leads to increased fatigue and an increased risk for certain illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes, and liver impairment. With side effects of moodiness, decreased attention, and drive, sleep apnea can affect all aspects of your life, including the quality of your relationships as well as your performance in work or school. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, our oral surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, offers the innovative Pillar Procedure for sleep apnea, helping you obtain a more restful sleep.
Taking only 20 minutes to complete, the Pillar Procedure in NYC works by placing several tiny implants into the soft palate. These implants stiffen the palate tissue, reducing the vibrations that cause snoring and airway obstruction. The treatment is an out-patient procedure requiring only local anesthesia and no downtime post-op. The Pillar Procedure will reduce snoring up to 80%! After this procedure, patients report a more restful sleep, increased alertness, and an overall lifestyle improvement.

Dr. Stein and our staff at New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center welcome any questions you may have about sleep apnea and the Pillar Procedure.
