Find Sleep Clinics & Specialists »

The uvula is the tissue that hangs from the back of the roof of your mouth. This can contribute to Sleep Apnoea as it may cause a blockage to your airway, or it could contribute to you simply snoring. The uvula can be removed through various different surgeries including Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) and Laser-assisted Uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP).
