Snoring, like all other sounds, is caused by vibrations that cause particles in the air to form sound waves. For example, when we speak, our vocal cords vibrate to form our voice.
While we are asleep, turbulent airflow can cause the tissues of the palate (roof of the mouth) and throat to vibrate, giving rise to snoring. Essentially, snoring is a sound resulting from turbulent airflow that causes tissues to vibrate during sleep.
In the past, there weren’t that many treatment options available for people who snore. They could go and get an expensive diagnosis, and then drop several thousand dollars visiting a sleep clinic that would require an annoying overnight visit. One of the possible outcomes for such patients would be having to strap themselves into a CPAP breathing device for the entire night—that’s one of those breathing masks attached to a tank next to your bed. Or worse, they would have to undergo a painful and invasive surgery.
Luckily, all that has changed!
Today there are plenty of non-prescription Anti Snoring Devices available, but how can you know which one is right for you?
The problem of snoring is a multi headed beast. What might work for one person right away, will do nothing for another. When we are asleep, the area at the back of the throat sometimes narrows as the muscles relax, and even close off temporarily. Different people who snore have different reasons for the narrowing. The narrowing can be in the nose, mouth, or throat.
We have tested the five most popular anti-snoring devices, which tackle all the various types of snoring (and its more dangerous side effects). All of these are clinically proven and recommended by doctors and sleep experts. They cover pretty much the entire spectrum of effective anti snoring devices available on the market today.
If you are not sure what is causing your snoring, there could be some trial and error involved in finding the ideal solution for you, but all of the products in our list are very affordable so you should be able to solve your snoring problem without breaking the bank.
#5: Stop Snoring Mouthpiece
The first choice for many snorers – and arguably the most successful category on the market today is the mouthpiece.
This is an established technology that has little to no negative side effects.
Stop Snoring Solution addresses the problem of snoring by comfortably stabilizing the jaw and bringing it forward. By preventing the jaw from falling back, Stop Snoring Solution opens up the airway in the back of the throat and allows air to pass through freely without creating the harsh vibration, hence alleviating the annoying snoring noise.
This small and surprisingly soft mouthpiece was designed by a dentist and has demonstrated both safety and effectiveness. It is designed to be comfortable, easy to use, and enables freedom of jaw movement so you can sleep with your mouth open or closed.
