If you snore or have mild to moderate sleep apnea there is a procedure that can help! The Pillar Procedure is an in office procedure that has helped thousands of people with what can be an annoying problem. Many of our patients come in because their partner has moved out of the bedroom and into another room to get a restful night of sleep because they're up hearing snoring all night. This doesn't have to happen, and there is help.
The Pillar procedure can be performed right in the office under local anesthesia. Small implants are inserted into the soft palate and over the next few months, your body will create scar tissue which stiffens the palate and helps to open the airway and improve the snoring.
Call the office to find out more. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Macdonald to see if you're a candidate for the Pillar Procedure.
