What is palate Coblation®?
Palate Coblation® is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses radio frequency energy to stiffen the soft palate and provide relief from symptoms of snoring and sleep apnea. This in-office procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes and is performed using local anesthesia.
Why is palate Coblation® performed?
Palate Coblation® is used to treat the following breathing and snoring problems:
- Lessen the Intensity of snoring
- Decrease loudness of snoring
- Correct mild to moderate sleep apnea
- Minimize soft palate vibrations, which causes blockages and snoring
What does palate Coblation® treatment involve?
Coblation® devices use radio frequency technology operating at a low temperature to form channels in the tissue of the soft palate. The body’s natural response is to form scar tissue in these channels, which stiffens the soft palate in the following weeks and reduces vibrations and snoring intensity.
