Not Your Typical Wives’ Tale Snoring Treatment

POSTED ON MONDAY, MAY 07, 2012 AT 9:55 AM  by Dr. Mark Stein

Some people say that if you are suffering sleep deprivation from a loved one’s nightly snores, to turn them on their side. Others say that simply closing their mouths, pinching their nose, or wearing breathing strips will quiet their snores. The problem with all of these solutions is that they aren’t actually solutions. Even if they happen to stop snoring in the moment, they aren’t actually fixing the cause of the snoring, which in many cases could actually be a symptom of a much more serious condition, known as obstructive sleep apnea. Fortunately, Dr. Mark Stein of New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery provides the Pillar Procedure in New York City, a snoring solution which can reduce snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea.

The Pillar Procedure in NY is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which inserts several tiny implants to stiffen the soft palate tissue in the back of the throat. This will reduce the vibrations which cause snoring and obstruct the airway during sleep apnea. This procedure is proven to reduce snoring intensity, decrease daytime sleepiness, and improve your lifestyle. The Pillar Procedure can be performed at New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery using only local anesthesia. No downtime is required following surgery. Patients may return to their normal activities and diet the very same day as the procedure. Unlike other surgical solutions for snoring, the Pillar Procedure in NYC does not remove or damage any tissue, so patient discomfort is minimal, both during and following surgery. Any discomfort the patient does feel can be easily managed through over the counter pain medications. Patients may experience less snoring within a few weeks to three months, depending on the individual and will experience lasting relief from snoring as long as the implant remains in place.

Don’t continue to follow old wives’ tales while searching for a snoring and sleep apnea solution! The Pillar Procedure is the most advanced technique in dental surgery proven to lesson snoring and improve symptoms of sleep apnea. Dr.  Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. and his staff encourage patients to express any questions or concerns you may have about the Pillar Procedure in New York.
