Put Sleep Apnea to Rest with the Help of a Philadelphia Oral Surgeon

“If you are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, your doctor may advise you to lose weight or stop smoking, if either of those two conditions apply to you. If these initial methods do not work, you might need to see an oral surgeon in Philadelphia and inquire about uvulopalatopharyngoplasty.

An uvulopalatopharyngoplasty removes tissue from the back of the throat to provide more space for air to pass through. Tissue removed may or may not include the uvula, tonsils, adenoids and pharynx. In some cases, patients may opt for a Laser-Assisted Uvula Palatoplasty, a procedure that uses a carbon dioxide laser to remove throat tissue.”
