Snoring treatments, Snoring is the result of the relaxation of the uvula and soft palate. These tissues can relax enough to partially block the airway, resulting in irregular airflow and vibrations. The Common causes of snoring are age, out of shape or overweight, nasal and sinus problems, alcohol, smoking and medication and sleep posture.
It’s the sound produced by the vibration of the weakened pharyngeal muscles and consequent narrowing of the upper airways. The soft palate and the uvula begin to flutter due to the exchange of air during breathing.
Research suggests that snoring is one of the factors of sleep deprivation. Worldwide about 50% of population snore and can severely interfere with the quality of life .
Although a wide range of treatments are now available for snoring, the objective evidence of outcome benefits is sparse. Non-surgical options such as oral appliances (splints, braces, nasal strips), CPAP masks, weight loss, palatal implants and decongestants require regular use and are not always as effective as expected. Surgical treatments that can be targeted at different anatomical regions in the upper airway, are often not preferred because of their invasiveness.
The goal of the treatment is to strengthen the structure of the soft palate and uvula, achieved by a fractional method that causes a microscopic damage to the mucous membrane. More than 50% of patients and their bed partners report an excellent snoring improvement.
