How to Stop Snoring Naturally

Snoring affects a significant percentage of the population in every country around the world. Research has shown that it becomes worse as we get older. 30% of men and 20% of women under the age of 60 snore. Increasing to 60% and 40% over the age of 60.

Snoring is essentially a 'mechanical' problem. The airway at the rear of the throat behind the tongue becomes smaller in some people when they sleep. This can be caused by a number of reasons, such as the individuals anatomy, weight around the neck, and reduced muscle tone. The reduced airway means the air travels faster through the airway when we breath, this causes the relaxed soft tissues in the throat to vibrate which results in the snoring noise.

One of the most well researched and proven techniques for stopping snoring is a 'mechanical' solution to this 'mechanical' problem. A mandibular advancement device is a mouth piece worn during sleep that gently holds the lower jaw forward in the 'recovery position'. it looks like a sports mouth guard but the latest generation of devices are very small and discreet.

By holding the lower jaw forward the airway is kept open and this is unequivocally proven to control snoring. Mandibular advancement devices should be made for the individual and supplied by a trained dentist.
