The decision on what treatment for snoring is best will depend on what you wish to achieve. If, for example, you are only trying to make your partner happy, then reducing the noise level of your snoring will already be classified as a success.

On the other hand, if your partner is a light sleeper, a reduction in noise will not be a sufficient result. If you suffer from serious snoring or even Obstructive Sleep Apnea, then the result you are searching for with a snoring treatment could possibly be to achieve a complete cure.

The doctor willTreatment for Snoring remove tissues and correct all abnormalities, and therefore tighten your throat muscles and tissues. As we now, if your throat muscles and tissues can tighten up, the vibration will be reduced which will then be an effective treatment for snoring.

  • Radiofrequency tissue ablation: In this procedure low intensity radio frequency signals are used to reduce the tissue in the soft palate which can reduce snoring. As with laser surgery, this procedure is still relatively new.

 

Make the right choice

As I said in my introduction, there are indeed a lot of treatments available to reduce or even stop snoring, and it is up to you to choose the best solution for you. Some of the treatments for snoring, such as laser surgery and palatal implants are not suitable if you suffer from OSA, and you should definitely seek medical advice in this regard.

Negative and positiveYou should only consider the more extreme treatments, such as surgery and those mentioned in the last four, if you have tried some of the other choices without success. Also if you’re snoring is having a huge effect on the quality of your life. Surgery should be considered as the last resort, and not the first choice.
