Treatment for adult snorers

Treatment for adult snorersA relatively new snoring treatment is the Pillar Palatal Implant System. This involves inserting small plastic rods into the softpalate, injected under local anaesthetic – the rods are about ¾ incheslong. The idea is to stiffen the soft tissue of the palate, sopreventing the soft roof of the mouth fluttering during sleep.

According to studies done at University Hospital in Mannheim inGermany, by Dr. Joachim T Maurer, fifteen patients treated in this wayshowed significant improvements after 90 days. However, furtherresearch is still needed.

Other remedies

Apopular cheap remedy is the nasal strip, which is a piece of flexibleplastic embedded in a sticking plaster. The strip is placed over theoutside of the nose and as the plastic tries to straighten itself out,a continuous pressure pulls open the nostrils, widening the nasalpassages and allowing in air. It is important to buy the right size ofstrip or it won’t work. Nasal strips are popular and said to beeffective but it depends on the cause of the snoring problem. They are not a cure for sleep Apnea.
