Are you one of the 45% of men or 30% of women who regularly snore? Could a stop snoring device be the answer?
(If you’re unsure, ask your partner – they’ll give you an honest – if unwelcome! – answer).
If you do snore, it’s in your interest to do what you can to stop – not just for your own health and wellbeing, but also for the betterment of your relationships. Snoring directly causes lack of sleep, distress, and resentment – not to mention daytime sleepiness, mood issues, poor concentration and performance, memory issues, and it has been scientifically linked to physical disorders such as metabolic issues and cardiovascular disease.
There are many things you can do to help with snoring, from lifestyle modifications to seeing your doctor if your snoring is a major issue. (This is especially important if there is any chance you may have obstructive sleep apnoea).
One effective way to try to help with snoring is to use a stop snoring device. There are different types of stop snoring devices, and they have varying levels of success. It’s important to understand your options and what works.
What Devices Can Help Stop Snoring?
There is quite an array of stop snoring devices available on the market today. If you’re seeking a snoring solution for the first time, the options may be overwhelming. How on earth are you supposed to choose the one that will be the most effective – yet at the same time, not disrupt your sleep?
Some of the more common stop snoring devices include:
- Chin Straps
These self-adhesive strips are worn under the chin; they aim to keep the mouth closed during sleep, thereby forcing the snorer to breathe through the nose. This is not widely considered to be an ideal option.
- Nasal Strips/Dilator
These may be helpful to address nasal snoring, which occurs due to obstruction or narrowing of the nasal passages and/or nasopharynx. It is a less-common cause of snoring overall. Nasal strips and dilators endeavour to keep the nostrils open during sleep. Nasal strips are self-adhesive strips of tape that are worn on the sides of the nose to pull the nostrils apart and open. Nasal dilators are metallic or plastic devices that are inserted into the nostrils for sleep. They push the nostrils open.
- Vestibular Shield
This is a plastic device worn inside the mouth. It obstructs airflow via the oral cavity, promoting nasal breathing. Like the chin strap, it is not considered to be particularly safe for a lot of users.
- Oral Mouthguards
Made specifically to stop snoring, these address the most common snoring caused by the vibration of the soft palate and/or the base of the tongue. They move the lower jaw forward and open the back of the throat to increase space for airflow and prevent snoring. They come in a range of materials and comfort levels. The best of these enable mouth breathing. A majority of users find them to be effective to stop snoring.
- Tongue Retaining Device
This is an oral appliance worn in the mouth that grips the tip of the tongue to prevent it from relaxing back into the throat during sleep. While it does enable mouth breathing and is quite safe, many users report that it can be uncomfortable to use and become accustomed to.
- Air Purifier
Air purification provides moisture and cleaner air to help stop snoring that is caused by pollutants and allergies. These irritants can inflame the nostrils, sinuses, mouth, nasopharynx, and throat, causing stuffiness and swelling. Air purifiers may be a good solution for snorers who have allergies to dust, pollen, pet dander, hay fever, or who smoke or live with smokers. They can also help in areas with very dry climates.
