Elevoplasty is a procedure that is performed in a doctor’s office. The procedure lifts and stiffens the soft tissue at the top and back of the mouth to help reduce snoring. It provides a therapeutic option for patients experiencing snoring. It is an alternative for those patients seeking relief from snoring who are not interested in wearing an oral appliance at night and who are not willing to undergo invasive surgery.
How does Elevoplasty Work?
Is the Elevoplasty procedure right for me?
Elevoplasty is used to treat the specific kind of snoring that is caused by the relaxation of soft tissue at the top and back of your mouth. When this tissue is relaxed, it rests against the back of your throat and obstructs your airway. However, as every patient is different, there could be other factors that cause your snoring. You will need to see your doctor for a consultation to assess your snoring and determine whether this procedure is right for you.
