Treatments to Stop Snoring

Atlanta Snoring Institute can treat your snoring with simple in-office procedures often performed in less than 30 minutes, allowing you to return to work right away. These procedures are effective and can reduce or even stop snoring in most patients.

Snoring can be caused by a number of different areas in the airway including the nose, soft palate (roof of your mouth), uvula and/or the tonsils. Each person’s condition is unique. At Atlanta Snoring Institute, we take a personalized approach and will work with you to pinpoint the exact cause of your snoring and determine the right snoring treatment that will work for you.

Treatment Options to Reduce or Stop Snoring

  • Pillar Procedure – An in-office procedure where tiny inserts are placed in your soft palate to help provide support. Because no tissue is removed, there is minimal discomfort and very short recovery time, sometimes only a day.
  • Nasal Surgical Procedures – We offer a number of surgical procedures for the nose including correcting a deviated septum (septoplasty) or reducing excess tissue within the nose (turbinate reduction).

Simple Lifestyle Changes May Provide Relief from Snoring

  • Losing extra weight
  • Sleeping on your side, instead of on your back
  • Avoiding the use of alcohol and sedatives before bed
  • Quitting smoking
  • Using nasal strips, which widen the nostrils and improve airflow


During your first office visit, your doctor will examine all parts of your upper airway and assess which areas are contributing to your snoring. The soft palate is almost always involved in chronic snoring, but there may be other factors as well, such as blockage of the nasal airway, tonsils and adenoids.

A treatment plan addressing your specific anatomy may include lifestyle modifications, minimally invasive or sometimes surgical treatments. Only a full examination by our board-certified ENT physicians can determine the treatment best for you.

Leading Provider of the Pillar Procedure in Georgia

If your soft palate is a factor, the Pillar Procedure may be an effective treatment option for you, because it stiffens the soft palate to reduce or eliminate the tissue vibrations that can cause snoring. The Pillar Procedure can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or used in combination with other treatments and lifestyle changes to help patients stop snoring. More than 50,000 people worldwide have been treated with the Pillar Procedure. Atlanta Snoring Institute has been treating patients with the Pillar Procedure since 2006 and we are the leading provider of the Pillar Procedure in Georgia.
