Mouthpieces Are The Most Effective Method To Stop Snoring

mouthpiecesmeSnoring is the result of some type of blockage in the airway that obstructs air flow causing the respiratory structures of the throat to vibrate abnormally during sleep. Relief from snoring is critical for restorative rest, which is a factor in your overall health. Without free air flow, the body is deprived of oxygen, and of sleep, leading to poor functioning throughout the day. The most common reasons for snoring are obstructions in the nasal passage between the nose and throat, a poorly positioned jaw, swelling in or around the throat, or blockage of the airway by the tongue. People with obesity are more likely to snore because of the larger amounts of fat around the throat, putting pressure on the airway.

Heavy consumption of alcohol and other harmful substances can also result in snoring. In cases such as these, snoring can be remedied by lifestyle changes that lead to healthier living, like eliminating alcohol and fatty foods from your diet. Losing weight and reducing the amount of fat around the throat can also help to reduce snoring among many other health benefits. In cases where snoring is a result of the tongue obstructing the airway, other methods are available:

•    Mouth guards and mouthpieces can be used to effectively and immediately eliminate snoring. These are available in two different types; Tongue Stabilizing Devices which control the tongue and stop it from falling back into the throat, and Mandibular Advancement Devices which protrude the lower jaw forward in order to prevent the tongue from blocking the airway. There are several brands of each of these devices, although the MADs are much higher rated and thought to be more effective. Unlike MADs, the TSDs are suitable for people who wear dentures.

Turn Good Nights into Good Mornings With GMSS

gmssThere’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night to a sharp elbows between your ribs or with the startled half-sleep in your brain because a strange sound woke you. People who snore face these issues on a regular basis and it’s not fun. It’s not fun for them and it’s not fun for those who live with them either.

For those afflicted by snoring in some shape or form, don’t lose hope! There exist a few options for you to alleviate yourself of this affliction. Some are easier to use than others and some of less expensive than others. You may have read of nasal strips or sleeping medicine but we’re going to talk about anti-snoring mouthpieces.

Of the several options on the market the Good Morning Snore Solution®, or the GMSS® for short, is a wonderful device that is friendly to just about any type of mouth, even for people who use dentures.

While the GMSS® can feel a bit sillier to use than others, it’s really a revolution in the anti-snore world. You almost look like you are using an adult pacifier, but it is really a very user-friendly device.

One Reason to Stop Snoring? A Healthier Marriage

stopsnoringSnoring is obnoxious. Physical health detriments aside, snoring can take a serious toll on your mental health as well. And when you share a bed with someone else, snoring can have serious consequences for the long-term health of your relationship. Since snoring is more common in men than in women, the adage “Happy wife, happy life” really does apply here. But plenty of women suffer from snoring problems as well. One of the best reasons to stop snoring is simply to make your partner happy.

Often times, the person with the snoring problem may not even be aware that he has a problem. When that person’s partner informs him of the sounds of heavy industrial machinery that are coming from his mouth every night, there is likely to be some resentment on the part of the snorer. Even after a man is made aware of his snoring problems, he may be unwilling to take any actions to address them, since doing so usually requires seeing a doctor, purchasing special anti-snoring devices, and/or changing his sleeping habits. But doing these things is still preferable to losing someone in your life that you care about, because when it comes to the question of just how much of an effect snoring can have on a relationship, the answer is: quite a lot, actually.

Reasons to Buy an Anti-Snoring Mouthpiece

antismpMy ex-husband used to snore. It was a horrible phenomenon that always kept me awake, not just from the sound, but because he had undiagnosed sleep apnea and I was afraid he was going to die.

Snoremeds Mouthpiece Review: Not The Worst Option!

Either way, snoring isn’t fun for either the snorer or the one who has to listen to it.

There are several ways to help alleviate yourself of the snoring habit you have fallen into.

When people sleep they are relaxed and relaxed people have relaxed muscles. One of the strongest muscles in your body is your tongue. When you sleep heavily your tongue can relax and fall into the back of your throat. This will block your airway which can cause the snoring.

One of the more useful methods for stopping snoring is using a mouthpiece designed to do just that. The SnoremedsTM Mouthpiece is a piece of …
