Anti-Snoring Treatment

Snoring is caused by the vibration of the soft palate on the roof of the mouth. In this procedure, radiofrequency heat energy is used to produce scarring in the soft palate, which stiffens it and may reduce the vibrations that create the snoring sound.


Snoring is often related to a physical obstruction to your breathing during sleep. The muscles of your palate, the uvula, and the tonsils relax during deep sleep, and the air you breathe in causes these structures to vibrate noisily.

Anything that narrows the airways will contribute to the problem, so excessive tissue bulk at the back of the throat is a major cause. A blocked nose can also restrict nasal respiration and encourage the vibration we know as snoring.

Advanced snoring problems are often linked to obstructive sleep apnoea—a condition where breathing stops and starts repeatedly during sleep, which can sometimes indicate a serious medical disorder.


Snoring is caused by the vibration of the soft tissue in the head and neck as you breathe in. Snoring occurs when a part of the throat air passage has a tendency to collapse and vibrate.

When asleep, the muscles in the walls of the throat and other throat structures are relaxed, which allows the collapse and vibration of these structures when breathing in.

The main issues when assessing a patient with this problem are:

  1. Where is the collapse/vibration occurring? This allows assessment for appropriate treatments.
  2. Is there obstructive sleep apnoea? The extreme end of the spectrum is apnoea: when the throat collapses completely during sleep. This causes an interruption of breathing because the throat is “shut” (apnoea).
    What happens as a result (at a simple level) is that oxygen levels in the blood stream decrease. This causes a degree of arousal, and the muscles of the throat tense up and the throat opens up, restoring normal breathing.
    A cycle of apnoea-arousal-resumption of breathing re-occurs throughout the night. In the long-term, obstructive sleep apnoea, untreated, can cause high blood pressure and put a strain on the heart.
    Also not to be under-estimated are the effects of permanent daytime tiredness on quality of life.


Snoring certainly affects the sleep pattern of the snorer, so sleep is affected. As a result, the snorer is not fully refreshed when he or she awakes. Indeed, the effect on other members of the family can be even more devastating.

Snoring can completely disrupt family life. Sleeping partners and even people in nearby rooms can lose significant amounts of sleep, and this often causes resentment.

In a survey carried out in 2001, 40% of the couples interviewed said that snoring had adversely affected their relationship, and 80% of these had resorted to sleeping separately to escape the noise.
