Reducing Snoring Using Tongue Advancement
ZenGuard is a snoring mouthpiece which is made by ZenSleep. It's a tongue stabilizing device (TSD), which means that it's a mouthpiece which holds your tongue in place to prevent it from falling backwards while you sleep. Holding the tongue in place reduces snoring for those whose tongue contributes to their snoring. Most people who snore will benefit from keeping their tongue from falling back over their airway.
