You know it.
That moment when your just drifting off to sleep.
Then it happens.
Your partner starts snoring so loud they sound like an outtake from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
If you haven’t experienced that moment, congratulations! Your partner is a quiet sleeper. Or, you’re the one snoring loud enough to wake the dead.
If you’re trying to save your relationship–or just get a good night’s rest–here are a couple remedies that can put an end to snoring, you know, if you’ve tried all the tricks below.
Mandibular Advancement Device
Sounds like a scary piece of equipment, right? It’s really quite simple.
The mandibular advancement device looks like a rubber mouth guard that boxers wear. Instead of protecting teeth, it moves your jaw forward just slightly. Realigning your jaw can do a lot for reducing snoring, keeping your airway open while you sleep.
Tongue Retraining Device
If your snoring’s caused by your tongue moving to the back of your mouth and blocking your airway, a tongue retraining device (TRD) might be the answer.
A TRD is a specially made splint that keeps your tongue in the optimal sleeping position. You’ll have to visit us a few times to adjust the device properly, but a good night’s sleep is definitely worth it.
A good night’s sleep is essential to reduce stress in your life.
Take some time to see if these appliances can help you get a good night’s rest (and also give one to your significant other).
