For some individuals, snoring is caused by a looseness in the palate tissue that may cause fluttering that results in snoring. The Pillar Treatment is performed in the office using a local anesthetic. The doctor inserts three polyester implants into the soft palate. The combination of the implants and your body’s natural scarring response cause the palate to stiffen which reduces the vibrations that cause snoring. Patients recover quickly with little pain. Many patients report long-term positive results.
