About Snoring

 Although most snoring is more of an aggravation than a serious health issue, snoring may be a sign of a more dangerous condition called obstructive sleep apnoea. Obstructive sleep apnoea occurs when the airway becomes completely blocked, causing you to actually stop breathing during the night.

This is why it’s important to undergo a complete examination by your doctor to thoroughly evaluate your snoring. Once the examination is complete, you and your doctor can discuss your treatment options which will help you (and your partner!) sleep soundly.

After the initial healing, about one week later, you should notice an improvement in your snoring.As the tissue in your soft palate continues to stiffen over time, your snoring will decline even further. Occasionally it may be necessary to repeat the procedure for optimum results.

 
 

 Snoring is a simple phenomenon that can turn into a complex problem. While you sleep, the muscles at the back of your throat relax, causing the soft palate to partially block your airway. As you breathe, the air from your mouth or nose tries to pass round the blockage, resulting in the rasps and rattles we know as snoring.When the airway becomes more blocked, the snoring gets worse-and so does the annoyance.

 

 
 

Hundreds of devices - and old wives tales - have been created to temporarily control snoring. Non-surgical approaches, including weight loss and other lifestyle
 modifications, or the use of
anoral appliance to reposition 
the jaw during sleep, are also
 options. Recently, however,
 new  technolog has been
 developed  to treat snoring.This technology,called Coblation,allows you togain control over your snoring through a simple procedure performed by your doctor.

With Coblation, an electrode is inserted into the soft palate and is held in position for just 10-15 seconds.
This will be repeated several
 times during your procedure. This process removes tissue, decreases the size of the palate and tightens the floppy tissue responsible for causing your snoring. 
 The Coblation procedure takes about 5 minutes, and is performed with local anaesthetic. Although this is a minor procedure, it’s normal to experience some after effects.
 For example, you may have a mild sore throat and a little swelling for a few days,with a ”full”feeling at the back of your throat. Your snoring may worsen at first, during the first
week. Your doctor will provide you with instructions for managing any swelling or discomfort.

Snoring is caused by excess tissue at the back of your throat that relaxes when you sleepand partially blocks your air passages.

During Coblation, a specialized Wand is inserted into the soft palate and held in place for just 10-15 seconds at a time.

Coblation decreases the size of the palate and stiffens the floppy tissue responsible for causing your snoring.
