Effective Ways to Control Snoring — 5 Comments

  1. Hi I just reviewed your anti-snoring mouthpiece product and have a
    few questions. I’ve pretty much snored my entire life and it has only got
    worse with age. I am now 29 and an absolute chainsaw or so I’m told.
    Apparently it doesn’t matter in which position I sleep either. I’m not
    overweight at all, pretty much been skinny my whole life but I do have a
    small mouth & throat opening as my Doctor would say. I have not yet taken a
    sleep test to be evaluated by a professional but I’m now toying with the
    idea. What do you suggest I do? I do notice I’m more of a mouth breather
    once I lie down and breathing through my nose isn’t always easy (I broke it
    a few times playing sports). I’m just to the point where I need to figure
    this out. Any help or insight you can provide would be awesome!

    • It sounds like you are one of those unlucky few who was born with a slightly
      smaller than normal upper airway (or slightly larger structures within the
      upper airway is another way of looking at it). As we age we tend to lose
      muscle tone in our upper airway, you are still young in comparison to most of
      my clients. However, chances are that the snoring will worsen very
      gradually over the years to a point where breathing while asleep may become
      compromised. There is a risk that sleep apnea may develop. Unfortunately
      there is nothing you can do to prevent this loss of muscle tone related to
      age. As long as your health habits are OK you don’t drink too much alcohol
      or smoke at all then you are doing all that you can do. If you are on any
      medications ask your MD if they may be decreasing respiratory effort or
      decreasing muscle tone. Sometimes switching to a new medication without
      these side effects can help. There are also some gimmicky-type programs out
      there that purport to be able to teach you how to exercise the upper airway
      muscles thereby preventing breathing problems. I haven’t read anything in
      the scientific literature on the effectiveness of this approach.

      What I suggest it to try my anti-Snoring Anti snoring mouthpiece and if it resolves the
      snoring then you’ll be OK for many years to come. I would also suggest that
      you add having a sleep study to your to-do-list. You probably don’t have
      apnea, so this would be simply documenting where your nocturnal breathing is
      at right now. You’ll have to purchase a new anti snoring mouthpiece every year to
      maintain a high level of effectiveness and if you notice that even a new one
      no longer helps, then it would be time for another sleep study.

      If you need help setting up a sleep study, let me know. I have a form you
      can use and a great sleep lab locator.

  2. I will spread the word and be happy to give an endorsement of my success with the device (Snorban) if you should desire. I am definately a staunch supporter of your device.

  3. The anti snoring mouthpiece works for me but I would like it to be more comfortable and last longer-any suggestions?

    • I recommend that you have a custom fitted device made. A custom fitted device will be more
      comfortable and 5 – 10% more effective. I suggest that you make an
      appointment to see a dentist who specializes in Sleep Related Breathing
      Disorders (SRBD). They will be able to make a MAD customized perfectly to
      your jaw and teeth lines. You can probably locate a suitable dentist here:
