Snoring FAQ's

What Is Snoring?
Snoring is a common condition that happens when air flows past relaxed tissues in the throat, causing them to vibrate during sleep. This vibration produces a sound that can be a nuisance to sleep partners. It can also be a sign of a more serious underlying condition, such as sleep apnea, and affects both men and women of all ages.

Are There Different Forms Of Snoring?

Yes, snoring can manifest in various forms, each with its own characteristics and potential underlying causes. Some common types of snoring include:

  1. Nasal Snoring:  Occurs when there is congestion or blockage in the nasal passages, leading to noisy breathing through the nose during sleep.

  2. Mouth Breathing Snoring:  This type of snoring happens when individuals primarily breathe through their mouths while sleeping, often due to nasal congestion, deviated septum, or other structural issues.

  3. Palatal Snoring:  Involves vibration of the soft palate and uvula at the back of the throat, resulting in the typical snoring sound.

  4. Tongue-Based Snoring: This happens when the tongue falls back into the throat during sleep, obstructing the airflow and causing snoring.

  5. Positional Snoring:  Some individuals only snore when sleeping in certain positions, such as on their back, due to the relaxation of throat muscles that occurs in these positions.

Identifying the specific type of snoring can help in determining appropriate treatment strategies and addressing any underlying issues contributing to the snoring.

Is It Common For Women To Snore?

Yes, it is common for women to snore, especially if they are overweight or reaching menopause. Pregnant women may also experience snoring. An anti-snoring mouthpiece can be a non-invasive solution for this issue.

Can you Stop Snoring from the First Night?

While our anti-snoring mouthpiece has an 85% success rate, there are other ways to reduce snoring. Simple adjustments like sleeping on your side, using nasal strips or dilators, or avoiding alcohol and sedatives can provide immediate relief for some people. However, persistent efforts and consultation with a healthcare professional may be necessary for others to identify and address the root cause of their snoring. We're here to help you find the best solution for your needs!

How Long Does The Mouthpiece Last?
Our mouthpiece is designed to last up to 4 months with regular use. However, it's important to keep it clean and hygienic to ensure its longevity. Please note that the lifespan of the mouthpiece may vary depending on usage habits.

So, why doesn't the SnoreMate anti-snoring mouthpiece have any holes? 

Mandibular devices, whether with or without holes, are highly effective in reducing snoring. Correct breathing habits through the nose are crucial for optimal results. While some mouthpieces have holes, they are not intended for breathing but rather to facilitate swallowing saliva. To achieve the best results with SnoreMate, it's essential to maintain clear nasal passages.

What Does It Feel Like To Wear An Anti-Snoring Mouthpiece?

Wearing an anti-snoring mouthpiece can take some getting used to, similar to wearing a gum guard before playing sports. Initially, it may feel strange and cause discomfort in your jaw and cheek muscles as they adapt to the new position. However, this minor discomfort is short-lived and worth it. After a week or two of use, you'll be accustomed to sleeping with the mouthpiece and enjoy the benefits of feeling refreshed and well-rested.

How Often Will I Need To Replace My Mouthpiece?

What do I clean the mouthguard with?

Use a toothbrush with toothpaste to clean it or place the mouthpiece in a container and drop in a Polident tablet. A mouthwash would also be adequate to keep the mouthpiece clean.

Are There Any Side Effects?

The mouthpiece is normally very well tolerated. There are minor and temporary side effects and this refers mainly to hyper-salivation and morning discomfort.

Is It Normal That The Snoring Mouthpiece Falls Out At Night?
