What is snoring?
Snoring is simply the sound of resistance and turbulence in the upper airway. Contrary to popular belief, the sound of snoring does not come from the nose. Rather, snoring starts in the back of the airway. Behind the tongue, the oropharynx may become constricted during sleep.
About 50% of the population snores. So, chances are, that you are very familiar with the sound of snoring.
During sleep, the muscles that keep the upper airway open and patent relax. This is more prominent during REM sleep, or dream sleep, when muscles are most relaxed. As the airway gets smaller, air turbulence increases. The soft tissues in the back of the throat vibrate. This is what causes the snoring sound.
The anti-snoring mouthpiece is one of the most effective anti- snoring devices options.
The anti-snoring mouthpiece is easy to use and generally comfortable for the user.
How snoring devices and snoring mouthpieces work, and how to stop snoring:
Snoring occurs because the soft tissues in the back of the throat vibrate and press against other throat anatomy causing resistance and turbulence – the snore sound. The antisnoring mouth guard or night guard brings the jaw forward which widens the back of the airway, reducing resistance and turbulence – which can stop the snoring.
