Snoring is a common problem – studies indicate that at least 30% of adults snore. Snoring can be a major factor in sleep disturbance, resulting in stress, lack of energy, poor concentration, mood swings, and irritability.
At The Beresford Clinic, we know how important it is to treat snoring effectively. We can create and fit a bespoke anti-snoring device to successfully stop you snoring long-term.
What causes snoring?
Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue. When you sleep, your muscles relax and become narrow, which restricts the airway and results in snoring.
Snoring can be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. This is where your throat muscles and tongue can collapse to the back of your throat, blocking your airway and causing you to snore. Further symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include gasping or choking in your sleep, a sore throat, and a headache when you wake up.
In the long term, snoring can lead to high blood pressure and heart problems. It will also often result in excessive fatigue during the day, as a result of disturbed sleep.
How do anti snoring devices work?
Our Somnowell anti snoring devices move the lower jaw forward to open the airway. The device will hold the jaw in what’s known as the “recovery position”. This is a natural and comfortable position, that just means the airway can stay open.
As your airway is held open, air can pass through unobstructed. This means no snoring and a quiet night’s sleep.
What’s the best anti snoring device?
There are a variety of snoring aids available on the market. There are many mass-produced devices, such as mouthguards, that are sold as a “one size fits all” solution. However, these are often uncomfortable to wear and can cause pain while you sleep.
There are also devices such as nose clips, which will pinch the nose to adjust the airways here. Again, these can often cause discomfort, but can be useful if your snoring is caused by restriction in the nasal passageway.
The alternative is a bespoke anti snoring device created for your specific measurements. This is the kind of anti snore device that we can offer at The Beresford Clinic, designed to open your airway and stop snoring without any discomfort.
The best anti snoring device will depend on your specific requirements and also what the cause of your snoring is. It can be advisable to discuss your situation with a doctor to find the best route to stop your snoring.
