Fractional Treatment For Snoring - Over 50 % of the UK population are affected by snoring
Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structure and the resulting sound due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. Research suggest that snoring is one of the main factors of sleep deprivation.
Several factors contribute to snoring. They are among others, nasal congestion (blocked nose), anatomy of the oral cavity, changes in the nasal septum (septal deviation), obesity or sudden weight loss, consumption of sedatives or other drugs, smoking and alcohol consumption.
Snoring Results in interrupted sleep which leads to the development of daytime sleepiness, irritability, poor concentration at work, during daily activities and even a low libido.
The management for the treatment of snoring in the Uk is often approached in a stepwise manner. This starts with the weight management, and then to devices to be worn at night-time through to surgical treatment.
Somnilase is an incredibly exciting treatment which promises to effectively treat snoring. An innovative treatment, the goal of the procedure is to strengthen the structure of the soft palate and uvula, achieved by a fractional method that causes microscopic damage to the mucous membrane which then heals with a renewed stability. As a result, the soft palate is fixed and becomes more stable during breathing, since a greater resistance to the passage of turbulent air flow throughout the night is provided. Offering a very real alternative to surgical intervention without the downtime or the risk associated, Somnilase is very quickly becoming one of the most sought after treatments for people whose life has been impacted.
