It’s no secret that snoring can be extremely disruptive. It can be very annoying for the snorer’s partner and other people in the household. This can cause undue pressure on relationships. Snoring can cause the snorer to wake up, ruining their own quality of sleep, and often leads to a dry or irritated throat.
What’s more, snoring is a very common problem. It’s estimated that approximately half of all people will have problems with snoring at some point in their life.
One of the most effective ways of countering snoring is using a no snore mouthpiece. No snore mouthpieces have been proven to be one of the fastest ways of addressing snoring. Here, we’ll look at what they are and how they work.
Why You Snore
Before we address how snoring mouthpieces work, it’s important to have a basic understanding of why we snore in the first place.
Snoring is caused by air not being able to pass freely through the throat and nose as we breathe. This causes the tissues in the back of the throat to vibrate. The most common causes of air not being able to pass freely is because of the positioning of the tongue and jaw.
What Is a Snoring Mouthpiece
Snoring mouthpieces look similar to an athlete’s mouthguard. You place the snoring mouthguard in your mouth before going to sleep. Snoring mouthpieces fit over your teeth inside of your mouth. This mouthpiece holds your lower jaw and tongue forward allowing the air to move unobstructed through your throat.
How Snoring Mouthpieces Work
As noted earlier, when the tongue and jaw fall back, an obstruction is caused in the throat. In turn, the tissues in the tongue and jaw vibrate. Snoring mouthpieces work due to what is known as mandibular reposition. By opening up the breathing passage, the tissues in the throat don’t vibrate.
Why Use a Snoring Mouthpiece
Snoring mouthpieces are one of the most highly rated anti snoring devices on the market. They are relatively simple to use and have a high success rate amongst a wide variety of snoring problems.
Snoring mouthpieces are able to either reduce the amount of sound made by the snorer or to eliminate snoring entirely. Unlike some other snoring prevention techniques, snoring mouthpieces work immediately.
Finally, snoring mouthpieces have one of the longest track records of any anti-snoring device, having been safely used for decades.
Snoring mouthpieces won’t correct all snoring issues. Serious issues with sleep apnea may require other treatment than mandibular repositioning. However, obstruction caused by the tongue and jaw are the most common cause of snoring, making this device one of the most effective ways of addressing the problem.
