Tongue Radiofrequency

Tongue Radiofrequency

Tongue radiofrequency uses controlled cauterization to tighten and shrink tongue tissues. This makes the tongue less likely to fall backward and block breathing during sleep.

Tongue radiofrequency typically requires two to three treatment sessions. There are multiple technologies, ranging from Coblation™ to Somnoplasty™. The procedure can be performed in an operating room under general anesthesia or in the office.
