The Best Stop Snoring Solution

The Best Stop Snoring Solution

Snoring is a physical problem caused by relaxed muscles making the airway smaller. When we breath the air then travels faster through the airway and this makes the soft tissues vibrate, and this is the source of the snoring noise.

Snoring affects both women and men, old and young, little and large. Sleeping with a snorer can be exhausting and very frustrating. The snoring noise can feel like torture as you are kept from getting to sleep. Frequently the over the counter cures aren't effective. Occasionally the snorer is in a state of denial and will not deal with the problem. In the end you may end up having to sleep in the spare room or on the sofa. It is not surprising that snoring so frequently leads to friction in a relationship and even divorce in some cases.

The first option is surgery. This is a popular choice as it offers the promise of a lifetime cure for snoring with a short 15 minute operation at the back of the throat with a laser. Unfortunately the results of research studies into common types of snoring surgery are not very encouraging. For many people surgery doe  not work, and for others the effects wear off over time. The operation is relatively painless but tends to be very unpleasant afterwards, similar to the worst sore throat you ever had. This can mean that many people do not return for the required follow up treatment. Research has additionally showed there to be frequent complications and a return of snoring after some months.

The second option is a mandibular advancement device. Inside this category there's a huge amount of choice. These oral devices hold the lower jaw forward and thereby bring the tongue forward too. This is also referred to as the 'recovery position' and is extremely effective at keeping the airway open and eliminating the snoring. This treatment is the most thoroughly investigated and proven treatment for snoring. The oral device is similar to a sports mouth guard and is worn at nighttime only. New 4th generation devices, such as the Somnowell, are tailor-made for the individual and made from advanced materials that offer more comfort and improved hygiene.
