Snoring: often the butt of bad jokes and scoffing snickers. However, this common condition can lead to more problems than mere mockery. Health risks including sleep apnea and diminished sleep quality can follow. Not to mention, the possible negative impact on a relationship. Anti-snore mouthpieces can provide a bright light at the end of this tunnel of rumbling noise. You can read our review of popular snoring mouthpieces here on the Mouthguard Store.
How Do Anti Snore Mouthpieces Help?
During sleep, your breathing can be compared to train steadily moving along a track. Obstruction to that flow can cause the train to get off course. The result: snoring. How can mouthpieces help this troublesome condition?
They Open the Airway: This is done by moving the jaw forward or keeping the palate tissues lifted to prevent blockage.
Stabilize the Tongue: The tongue can fall back and obstruct airflow while oral appliances can work to secure and keep the tongue in place.
Easy to Use: Conveniently inserted into the mouth while you sleep, they enable proper air-flow to help ensure better rest.
