Uvulectomy

Stop snoring for household harmony

If your nighttime noises have turned from gentle whispers to rumbling roars, it’s definitely more than just a minor annoyance…especially for those who share your space. Plus, your loud snoring could be a signal that there is a more serious issue at play: sleep apnea. Snoring can be caused by an enlarged uvula, the soft piece of tissue that dangles at the back of your throat. A uvulectomy reduces the size of your uvula to help reduce your snoring problem….thus, providing both you and your bed partner with the quiet, restful sleep you've been missing out on.

What is a uvulectomy & how does it work?

The uvula is the tissue that hangs at the back of the throat. If it’s too large it can vibrate while you’re breathing at night which can produce snoring. At ADVENT, the Uvulectomy is a simple in-office procedure that reduces the size of the uvula by removing a portion of it. When the uvula is smaller, it vibrates less which is what causes snoring.

Why choose ADVENT for a uvulectomy?

Knowledgeable people. Friendly staff. Since there's no way I can use CPAP, I would definitely give ADVENT a try first. They get u breathing properly first.

It made me feel better knowing they found a problem, corrected it and now I breath better. I no longer snore and have no sinus headaches.

I was pleasantly surprised by the positivity in the office. I just don't experience that much in clinical settings.
