Usually, an operation known as uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (commonly referred to as UPPP, or U3P) is done to treat or prevent snoring. However, there are instances where a scar tissue forms which can cause sleep apnea again.
Recently, medical practitioners has developed a new injection that may cure snoring.
The shot is made of the chemical sodium tetradecyl. It is injected into the roof of the snorer’s mouth and acts as a hardening agent.
Dr. Hadi Al-Jassim in Liverpool, England tested the shot on 400 patients with successful results. He said most patients found the shot lasted about one year, but it can be given up to three times each year.
Other treatments for snoring include improved eating habits, avoiding medications that cause drowsiness before bed, establish regular sleeping patterns, sleeping on your side or tilting the head of your bed up by about four inches.
