What is Injection Snoreplasty?

Injection snoreplasty at Texas Sinus and Snoring in Spring, TX is a minimally invasive treatment for snoring that injects a hardening agent called sodium tetradecyl sulfate into the upper palate. As a result, the hardening agent creates a blister just in front of the uvula or the upper palate. When the blister hardens a few days later, it pulls the uvula forward to open up the airway and reduce snoring vibrations. The hardening agent then helps to reduce the volume and frequency of snoring. Injection snoreplasty may be repeated if desired results are not reached with the first injection.
