Here’s a list of some effective snoring devices.
If nasal constriction is the root of your snoring problem, then try using nose strips. Nose strips are fitted with flexible material. The goal of the nose strip is to expand your nostrils so that more air can pass through as you breathe.
Plastic Nostril Devices
These work the same way as nose strips. Plastic nostril devices are inserted into your nose. The aim is to increase nasal air supply so that you don’t have to open your mouth to breathe.radio strap
If you’re snoring issues are caused by open-mouth sleeping, then consider using a chin strap. Chin straps wrap around your jaw and prevent you from sleeping with your mouth wide open. When you sleep with an open mouth, you put unnecessary pressure on your throat. This constricts normal oxygen flow, and contributes to snoring problems. The chin strap might take some getting used to, but it can offer some relief.
If you visit your dentist, you can get fashioned with a custom mouth piece that’ll help you breathe better at night. The mouth piece helps jut your lower jaw forward (think of Bill Cowher, head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers), and this can make it easier for you to breathe clearly while you sleep.
Over-the-counter treatments like Snorenz, can be used to combat acute snoring symptoms. Snorenz is an easy to use throat spray. The Snorenz formula contains natural oils that lubricate the soft tissues in your throat. This lubrication effect makes night-time breathing less constricting and less noisy.
For more serious cases of snoring, surgery may be needed. If you have nasal polyps or other obstructions, you’ll need to get them removed. A deviated septum needs to be fixed by surgery. Sometimes it helps to have your tonsils removed as well. You can also have your uvula stripped. This procedure causes the uvula to scar and stiffen. That way it doesn’t flap around uncontrollably as you sleep. Snoreplasty is a procedure that involves an injection in the soft palate. The injection is intended to stiffen the small palate, which in turn makes night time breathing easier. A somnoplasty will use a radio frequency generator to shrink the inner tissues of your throat. This can also make it easier to breath at night.
Snoring is a nuisance that can and must be dealt with. Just make sure you know what you’re dealing with so that you can select the anti-snoring treatment that’s tailored to your individual snoring troubles. When you’re deciding upon a specific device, make sure that it’s safe, comfortable and effective.
