Tired of Things That Don’t Work?

AND NOT READY TO WEAR A MASK TO BED? Lots of treatments claim to help you stop snoring—nasal strips, chin straps, special pillows and sprays. How many have you tried? The US Patent Office lists more than 300 devices designed to stop snoring. But studies consistently show they just don’t work.1 Snoring is caused by vibration of the soft palate. The Pillar® Procedure is a minimally-Am-I-A-Candidateinvasive in-office procedure that gets to the root of the problem by significantly reducing vibrations of the soft palate, allowing you and your bed partner to enjoy a full night’s sleep—and a full life.

If snoring is harming your lifestyle and relationship, and you’ve tried numerous remedies without success, it’s time to look at the clinically-proven Pillar Procedure.

Is Pillar Right for Me?

MORE THAN 45,000 PEOPLE WORLDWIDE HAVE BEEN TREATED WITH PILLAR. BUT IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU?

 

If your soft palate contributes to your snoring and/or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), Pillar may be an excellent treatment for you. Only a doctor can determine if you’re a good candidate. Your doctor will examine your upper airway to determine if your palate is causing or contributing to your snoring or OSA, and if you are a good candidate for the Pillar Procedure.

I chose Pillar because it seemed a lot less invasive…I don’t really notice it at all…I’m sleeping better at night. I’m getting better rest than I’ve had in years.

See how Pillar worked for Mike Wolf. Watch the video.
