Alleviate Sleep Apnea With UPPP
Sometimes, addressing a sleep disorder takes more than a dental appliance. Many patients struggling with chronic snoring and sleep apnea don't find relief with non-invasive means of treatment. Fortunately, Indianapolis Sinus Center is here to help restore your quality of sleep. At our center, we offer a range of treatments, including uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. We meet with each Indianapolis patient to learn more about their condition and unique needs, and then we recommend a treatment best suited to them. Find out if uvulopalatopharyngoplasty could be the sleep apnea treatment you're looking for.
What Is the Uvula and What Does It Do?
The uvula is the piece of soft tissue that hangs in the back of the throat. This unassuming piece of tissue plays a crucial role while you eat and drink, blocking foods and beverages from going up your nose instead of down your throat. However, some people need their uvula removed in a procedure called uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP).
