See a Surgeon for Snoring To Stop

"See a surgeon!"

"Surgeon; Surgery (from the Greek cheirourgia - lit. "hand work") is the medical specialty that treats diseases or injuries by operative manual and instrumental treatment. Surgeons are medical practitioners who specialize in surgery."

One way to stop your "snoring problem" is to consult your surgeon and undergo a medical procedure such as the uvulopalatopharyngoplasty or UPPP.

UPPP is a medical process to lessen or completely eliminate the snoring in an individual. With this process, the surgeon will remove excess tissues in your throat to widen the air passageway.

Some tissues of the throat may or may not be removed depending on the severity of snoring. Common throat tissues which are removed are:

-Uvula : A cone-shaped projection hanging down from the soft palate in the oropharynx. The uvula may become swollen and enlarged in people who snore.
-Soft palate
-Pharynx : space behind the mouth that serves as a passage for food from the mouth to the esophagus and for air from the nose and mouth to the larynx.
-Tonsils : Organs at the back of the throat that help the body fight off viral and bacterial infections; part of the immune system. No longer routinely removed when they become infected.
- Adenoids : Glands or lymphoid tissue in the upper part of throat below the nose, also known as the pharyngeal tonsil.

Medical studies show that patients who have undergone UPPP experience severe pain after the surgery. The following dangers are also seen with this procedure:

-Lack of sleep due to post-surgery prescriptions.
-Trouble in swallowing.
-Possibility to develop infection, inflammation in the throat area and to some extent excessive bleeding.

Apart from UPPP, you can also opt to undergo somnoplasty. Somnoplasty is a contemporary medical procedure to make your snoring stop.

At a lower level, power and temperature radio frequency energy is being utilized under this treatment where the section of the uvula and soft palate is treated. According to medical studies, post surgery risks are nominal although you may experience uneasiness a few days after the surgery.

Another recent medical procedure is the coblation-channeling to help cure snoring. The procedure involves eliminating some tissue through the method of "molecular disintegration." Furthermore, some tissues may also be heated so the soft palate will reduce in size and stiffen.

Recuperation after undergoing coblation-channeling normally takes about seven days. Afterwards, you can now pursue your usual daily tasks. More significantly, you and your partner will have better mornings due to a good night sleep.

It is recommended that surgery should be your last option especially if your snoring is still curable with natural remedies.
