Stop snoring safely without Surgery

surgery for snoring

There are other options to try before surgery for snoring!

Snoring surgery can be severe. Across the medical profession, surgery is seen as an absolute last resort to solve snoring problems, and doctors recommend that surgery is only considered once all other options have been tried, and have failed. There is no guarantee of success from surgery.

Snoring Surgery – What are the options?

Snoring surgery comes in four different forms: uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), laser-assisted uvuloplatoplasty (LAUP), palatal stiffening (CAPSO) and radio-frequency ablation. UPPP involves the removal of the uvula arches, as well as partial removal of the soft palate and tonsils. LAUP is usually the preferred option to UPPP, as it is safer, using lasers to trim the edges of the same parts. Some patients will require up to four LAUP surgeries, with post operation pain lasting usually no more than two weeks, peaking between 3 and 9 days post procedure.

Palatial stiffening involves burning the soft palate to cause scaring and hardening. This means that the soft palate tissues vibrate less with the pressurised air being forced past it when a snorer breathes. Again, multiple procedures may be required. Radio-frequency ablation is a relatively new procedure, and has so far had mixed results, especially in those with a BMI of 30+.

What are the alternatives to Snoring Surgery?

There are a whole range of stop snoring devices. Having reached the stage that you are considering surgery, it is likely that you have tried the ‘off the shelf’, one size fits all options, whether they are snoring strips, snoring rings or even audio books. These rarely work effectively, and if they are considered successful, it is because your spouse is no longer complaining, not that you are getting a fitful night’s sleep.

There are two remaining options. An expensive, and often impractical CPAP machine, or a Snorepro. CPAP machines can produce good results for the user. By wearing a breathing mask, connected by a tube to the machine itself, pressurised air is pumped into your mouth, forcing the airway open. It is often the impracticability and discomfort of wearing a tethered mask that prevents the device being worn each night – and therefore snoring continues unabated.

Snorepro – Stop Snoring Safely

Finally then, that leaves Snorepro. Snorepro works on the same fundamentals that a CPAP machine does; stopping the closing of the airway. However, Snorepro does this by keeping the jaw slightly forward and allowing the airway to remain open. Its design and bespoke fit prevents any chance of choking, and leaves you, and those around you, with a restful night’s sleep. Snorepro offers the safest, surest alternative to snoring surgery.
