Snoring isn't a new phenomenon. People have complained about this age-old problem and its affect on their relationships, energy level, and cardiovascular health for centuries. In fact, until recently there were just a few remedies to choose from. If you went to a sleep center, they'd provide diagnostic testing and send you home with a CPAP machine. If you visited a dental sleep center, you'd get an oral appliance. And, if you saw a surgeon, your only treatment option would be surgery. At ChicagoENT, we offer you all those treatment options, plus other minimally invasive and highly effective solutions like Palatal Stiffening and the Pillar Procedure.
