What Is Snoring?

Snoring is the raspy sound that occurs as you breathe when sleeping. The throat has soft tissues that vibrate when air flows in and out of the body. These vibrations are what cause hoarse sounds known as snoring. While nearly everyone snores on and off at some point in their life, for some individuals, snoring can be a chronic issue. It may also be a symptom of an underlying health problem. In many cases, snoring is linked to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). At Crystal Canyon ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery, we will evaluate the underlying cause of your snoring and treat it surgically. To sleep more comfortably and reduce the severe side effects of snoring, set up an appointment with our Flagstaff, AZ office.

How Is Snoring Treated?

Chronic snoring typically can be alleviated with certain lifestyle changes, like reducing alcohol consumption, losing weight, and sleeping on your side. We may also recommend using a nasal decongestant, oral appliance, or surgery. Depending on your current health, quality of sleep, age, and personal preferences, different therapies may be considered. Our medical practitioners at Crystal Canyon ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery are up to date in advanced surgical techniques to address snoring, including:

  • A nerve implant stimulates the tongue to contract and move out of the way while breathing during sleep.
  • Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty or UPPP surgery involves reshaping tissue in the throat.
  • Nasal obstruction removal through surgery may increase airflow through the nose. We also offer another option with LATERA®, an absorbable nasal implant that fits inside the lateral wall of the nose, reducing nasal obstruction issues and helping you breathe better.

I am very pleased to be a patient in Dr. Fratianni’s practice. My chronic ear/nasal issues were negatively affecting my quality of life and I needed expert advice. Dr. Fratianni took the time to advise me on my test results. She incorporated my results into a comprehensive medical plan, one that supports better health and wellness. Dr. Fratianni has given me the confidence to become my own advocate/ partner in my health care — for this I am thankful. Now, my quality of life has improved and I can enjoy my active lifestyle again. Thank you Crystal Canyon ENT

I started my journey with Crystal Canyon in 2022. Tey are very informative and surgery was scheduled quickly. Well the day came for surgery and found out I had COVID. Surgery was cancelled. I got rescheduled for May of 2023, (this was due to my schedule not Crystal Canyons). When surgery came it went very well, I could not be happier. The results and outcome are life changing. Communication with the office is good. Doctor is attentive and takes time to explain things when you have questions. I definitely recommend and have recommended Crystal Canyon to other friends.
