POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 10, 2013 AT 3:48 PM  by Dr. Mark Stein

Is sleeping with your partner becoming a struggle because of his or her chronic snoring? Do you find yourself up late at night searching the internet looking for at-home solutions to your partner’s snoring; or, has your loved one come to you complaining of sleepless nights because your snores are keeping them awake? Snoring can become a bigger problem in daily life, affecting your relationship, the quality of your sleep and your health. NY oral Surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, at New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery has the solution for you.

The Pillar® Procedure in NYC can help to treat snoring in NY and relieve suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. The procedure can be performed at New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery by NY oral surgeon, Dr.Stein in less than a half hour, and it’s minimally invasive, only placing a minimum of three implants into the soft palate. Over time, the body will respond to the implants and add support to stiffen the area that vibrates and causes snoring. The implants also help reduce the issue of collapsing tissue that obstructs the upper airway causing sleep apnea in NY. The procedure is an easy, out-patient procedure with minimal pain during or after.

After the procedure, you can expect very little discomfort. Some patients use over-the-counter medications and other patients need no pain relief at all. The implants are not visible, they cannot be felt, and they will not impair speech or swallowing. Patients can resume normal eating habits and activities the same day after the Pillar® Procedure in NYC

After the Pillar® Procedure, patients note a significant decrease in snoring intensity. The reduction in snoring leads to a more satisfying sleep for bed partner as well as the patients. Sufferers of sleep apnea noticed a permanent reduction in their hypopnea index after the procedure, leading to a more restful night’s sleep.
