Should you wear snoring appliances at night?
Did you know there more than 100 anti-snoring devices that can keep you and your partner sleeping soundly at night? You don’t have to worry about waking up at night gasping for air or worry about keeping your spouse awake listening to you snore.
Snoring may not be just that annoying noise you make at night.
Snoring is not just a nuisance. It may be a sign of something more serious going on. When you snore, it means something hinders the smooth passage of air through the upper respiratory tract. In serious cases, the obstruction causes a halt in breathing. This is called sleep apnea, a condition that is present in a significant number of snorers. Sleep apnea does not only disrupt your sleep but also makes you drowsy and lethargic the entire day.
What do doctors recommend?
Doctors recommend anti-snoring devices for people with mild to moderate snoring problem. Doctors or dentists suggest the use of these devices to people whose snoring persists despite conventional lifestyle modification (e.g. weight loss and change in sleep posture).
Your doctor will identify which area in your upper respiratory tract is most likely responsible for your snoring.
