Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) masks are often the initial therapy recommended for treating snoring and sleep apnea. While CPAP is extremely effective for those patients who keep the mask on all night long, it is estimated that more than half of all patients prescribed a CPAP mask are not compliant or may simply not be using the mask at all, which makes CPAP alternatives a more viable option.
Atlanta Snoring Institute offers several CPAP alternatives, including a number of minimally invasive procedures.
CPAP is only effective if you wear it.

If you have been prescribed the CPAP mask but refuse to wear it or are non-compliant, you can take comfort in knowing that there are other treatment options available to you, including quick, in-office procedures that may take 30 minutes or less. To effectively treat your condition, you must first receive a comprehensive evaluation with one of Atlanta Snoring Institute’s board-certified physicians. Then our doctors will be able to determine which treatment option(s) will be best suited for you.
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.
