We understand just how disruptive snoring can be to a good night’s sleep. If you or your partner have a snoring problem, you may be able to get help from a surprising source.
Many orthodontists offer snoring solutions in the form of mouth guards. These anti-snoring aids are made of soft plastic and are comfortable and completely safe to wear. Even better? For many people they really work, meaning that the whole family can get a better night’s sleep.
How do anti-snoring mouth guards work?
Orthodontists have developed anti-snoring mouth guards following a great deal of research into the cause of snoring. Researchers have shown that a lot of people snore during the night due to poor jaw alignment. If you have an issue with your jaw alignment, it may result in your tongue slipping back into your mouth during your sleep and blocking your airway: hence the snore.
This research has enabled orthodontists to develop mouth guards that work by holding your jaw in a better position during the night. This means that your tongue will sit more comfortably further up in your mouth and that you won’t snore.
