Snoring is something nearly everyone in Orange County can relate with. Given the fact that 45 percent of people snore on occasion, chances are that either you or your partner have spent a few nights snoring away. As a matter of fact, nearly 25 percent of people are considered habitual snorers who snore each night or most nights. Dr. Kevin Sadati recognizes that snoring is an inconvenient and sometimes embarrassing condition, which is why he provides his Newport Beach patients with in-office treatment options.
What is the Pillar Procedure?
The Pillar Procedure is a 20-minute procedure that can be completed in Dr. Kevin Sadati’s office. Patients find that this procedure is a great choice for them because there is no recovery period associated with it. This procedure requires Dr. Kevin Sadati to place small implants in the soft palate. Ultimately, these implants reduce vibrations and minimize snoring. This easy procedure is not only effective, but it also is very easy for the patient to handle. There is little pain or discomfort associated with it.
What is Turbinate Coblation?
For patients who are suffering from nasal congestion and ultimately snoring because of nasal blockages, the turbinate coblation is often the best snoring treatment option. This painless in-office procedure requires Dr. Kevin Sadati to use radio frequency energy in order to reduce the size of the nasal turbinates. The radio frequency energy eliminates any nasal blockages and reduces the impact of snoring.
What is Soft Palate Coblation?
For many patients, the soft palate is the cause of their snoring. The vibration of the palate causes a person to snore, and soft palate coblation helps to stiffen the palate in order to minimize the vibrations. This in-office procedure takes about 20 minutes to complete and is considered to be one of the most successful snoring treatment options. Radio frequency energy is used in order to create channels and ultimately form scar tissue in order to create a firm palate. This procedure is significantly less painful than other invasive procedures or laser snoring procedures.
While all of these in-office procedures will minimize or eliminate snoring in your life, you might want to determine what is the cause of your snoring. Some patients find that structural issues in their nose or blockages, in their sinuses, are causing the snoring to occur. In these instances, sinus surgery may be the best option. If your partner is constantly complaining about your snoring and you feel that it is finally time to do something about it, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Kevin Sadati. Set up a consultation appointment with him today in order to discuss the treatment options that might benefit you.
