Abstract

The present invention generally relates to methods and compositions for treating conditions of the palatal area such as snoring and/or sleep apnea. More particularly, the invention pertains to a method and composition comprising implants which remodel the soft tissue of the palatal area, and more particularly to bioreplaceable implants which are replaced by host cells where the remodeled soft-palate has a reduced frequency of oscillation in response to airflow past the soft-palate and results in reduce snoring. In some embodiments, the bioreplaceable implants comprise processed tissue material to reduce the frequency of oscillation of the soft palate in response to airflow, and more particularly to submucosa tissue implants.
