Types of Sleep Apnea Surgery

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a condition in which you stop breathing during your sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of sleep apnea that’s found in Torrance, California and across the country. OSA occurs when your airway gets blocked during your sleep, preventing you from physically taking in air.

A CPAP is the most popular treatment for OSA. This machine constantly forces air into your airway, allowing you to breathe at night. CPAPs can be life-changing for many people while others find them to be more of a burden and can’t tolerate them. For these folks, surgery may be an option.

Types of Sleep Apnea Surgery

There are different ways that sleep apnea can be treated with surgery.  Some of the following include:

Nasal Surgery
Nasal obstruction and chronic congestion may be the cause of your sleeping problems. During nasal surgery we create more room in the nose so that air can pass through smoothly, allowing you to breathe more easily.

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)
UPPP removes excess tissue from the soft palate and pharynx, which prevents the tissue from collapsing and blocking your airway. 

Soft Palate Implants (Pillar Procedure)
Soft palate implants are placed in the soft palate, resulting in an inflammatory response that stiffens the soft palate.

Tongue Advancement
Tongue advancement is a rather invasive procedure but it does work well. By advancing the tongue forward, it won’t fall backward while you sleep and block your airway.

Which Treatment Is Best For You?

If you suffer from sleep apnea and want an option other than a cumbersome CPAP machine, then call Torrance Oral Surgery Center. Benjamin Yagoubian DDS, MD is happy to advise you on the proper treatment. We look forward to meeting you.

Paul M.

A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.

This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

The staff here are super friendly and always show genuine concern. I got my wisdom teeth pulled about a year ago and Dr. Yagoubian and his staff made me feel less anxious about the procedure. When I was done, they were thorough with their instructions on how to take care of myself while my wounds healed. They even gave me an ice pack to wrap around my head for the swelling (super useful). Dr. Yagoubian even called to check in on me after the surgery. So when I needed more extractions done this year for orthodontic treatment, I made an appointment here and once again I was well taken care of. Every single person in this office was friendly. During the procedure, they made me feel less anxious even though I was super shaky about getting local anesthesia. They gave me detailed instructions on how to care for my wounds, always gave me an opportunity to ask questions. And once again, Dr. Yagoubian called after the procedure to make sure I was doing well. Now, anytime someone mentions they need their wisdom teeth removed, I tell them Dr. Yagoubian is the man!!

What a nice and knowledgeable Doctor! Dr. Ben took the time to answer all our questions about the removal of all four wisdom teeth. He explained in detailed what was going to happen and the reason why he does the procedure. It’s obvious that he loves what he does. His staff is very welcoming and friendly. The nice lady in charge of the billing explained very clearly everything. Dr. Ben even called us the evening after the surgery to check if everything was ok. We highly recommend Dr. Yagoubian!

Raj G.

Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.
