What Other Products Are There To Help With Snoring?
There are many anti-snoring products on the market today because for many people, the thought of wearing a CPAP mask to bed overnight is daunting, to say the least. Many people feel claustrophobic with a mask on and they simply cannot get comfortable in bed. Other people complain of the mask not fitting properly against their face and then it slides around during the night. Whether they have facial hair or the straps just aren’t adjusted properly, there is a feeling of anxiety when they go to bed. For many bed partners, the thought of their partner not wearing a CPAP mask means that the snoring will return and that they won’t get a good night’s sleep. I know that’s how my wife feels. She was amazed at how my snoring stopped immediately after I started wearing a CPAP mask to bed, so she knows that if I didn’t wear mine, she might as well go and sleep in another room.
Now, for those of you who may not have sleep apnea or have been told that it is not bad enough to warrant a CPAP machine, but you still snore, there are a number of different options on the market to help with snoring. I would like to up front with you and tell you that I haven’t tried all of these products. For me personally, I have only tried a dental appliance but my wife will tell you that it didn’t stop the snoring and I would wake up in the morning with a sore mouth because of the mouth guard. Many people, however, do use dental appliances to treat sleep apnea, as well as snoring, and these appliances seem to be effective about 75% of the time. A dental appliance is worn at night while you are sleeping, and holds the jaw and tongue forward, and the palate up, so it does not fall backward and block the air passage.
Dental appliances are a very effective alternative to surgical procedures. These devices must be worn every night, and because they must be a perfect fit with the person’s teeth, they are often fitted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
