There’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. All the ear plugs in the world can’t make for a good sleep. By using ear plugs you run the risk of blocking out too much noise. When that happens, alarms and crying children might be easy to miss and that can lead to a variety of dangerous situations.
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.
Most anti-snore mouthpieces require you to shove a hunk of plastic in your mouth so that it can push your lower jaw forward and open the airways a bit better. This is useful, but it’s not the only culprit when it comes to snoring. Many people snore because when they are over-relaxed during sleep their tongue falls to the back of their throats which is the real airway obstruction.
By using the GMSS® you don’t have to worry about biting down on some piece of plastic all night nor do you have to worry about the potential pain you might suffer from having your jaw pushed forward all night. By placing the GMSS® between your front teeth and your lips you keep your teeth out of the equation. This is why it is the preferred anti-snore device for those with dentures as well.
When you’ve got the GMSS® in position you squeeze the protruding bulb to let out air, place the tip of your tongue into the end of the device and then release the bulb. This creates suction between your tongue and the mouthpiece then once your tongue is relaxed it will stay in position.
Almost sounds too easy to be true, doesn’t it? That’s the beauty of this device. It’s very user-friendly and you don’t have to worry about adjustments, boiling and biting, trimming or anything of the like. You don’t have to be concerned that you are purchasing the right size or how to ensure you moulded the piece to your unique mouth formations. It truly is a universal one-size-fits-all.
Many chose anti-snoring devices because they are reusable, fairly inexpensive, and easy to use. The GMSS® is by far the easiest of the bunch and has been the go-to device for many snore sufferers. The only major downside to using this device is that it will rely on you breathing through your nose during the night. If you suffer from allergies or any other condition that does not allow you to breathe easily through your nose it is highly recommended that you investigate another device. Otherwise, let’s turn your good nights into good mornings and get that sleep you surely deserve!
