There are a lot of anti-snoring devices on the market nowadays… but there are also a lot of negative reports and reviews about them circulating around out there as well.
A lot of people suffer from snoring. But in all honesty, few end up actually doing anything about it. So when you do end up doing something about it, only to end up trying out a product that doesn’t really work, it can be very disheartening.
Many people find themselves simply giving up after trying out a stop snoring device that fails them.
But giving up is not going to fix your snoring problem, and it is not going to help you sleep better. Instead, you may end up being forced to try more than one device if you hope to find something that will really work for you.
But what anti-snoring devices are most likely to work? Which ones help the best?
In this post, we are going to talk about some of the most helpful stop snoring devices on the market, and discuss them candidly to give you some ‘real information’ that you could potentially use to help your plight.
So here it goes. Let’s talk about some anti snoring devices that will actually work.
Mandibular Advancement Devices
A lot of people scoff at these devices, but in our experience, you shouldn’t knock’em till you try’em!
MADs are basically mouthpieces that you boil and then bite into to custom-fit. Once this is done, you would wear them all night to slightly advance your lower jawline as you sleep.
And make no mistake—even the cheaper versions of these work pretty well. They are cumbersome to get used to, and at first, they might even make your jaw sore.
But take it from someone who has used them before… if you give it time and don’t give up, odds are very good that you will get used to them, and that they will really help.
They are big and bulky, and you might find yourself thinking that using one is ridiculous upon first trying it. But the hard truth of the matter is that mandibular advancement devices actually do work, and that if you buy one and commit to using it, it will probably make your snoring problems better, or even get rid of them altogether.
Tongue Stabilization Devices
TSDs are another mouthpiece-type-snoring device that often get a bad rap from people at first. Because you do have to keep them in your mouth over the course of the entire night in order for them to be useful, they can be rather invasive and can take a bit of getting-used-to.
But tongue retaining devices do virtually the same thing as MADs, albeit they do so using a different mechanism. Instead of advancing the lower jawline, they hold your tongue forward to help create more room in the airway. So in many cases, they are pretty much just as effective.
A lot of snorers who have tried them criticize them because they can be uncomfortable at first, which can cause people to give up on the idea before they’ve really given it a chance. But if you can get past this and just give them a try for a straight two weeks in a row, you will likely find that they are much better at solving snoring problems than a lot of people realize.
The great thing about nasal strips is that they are available everywhere.
But the bad part of using them is that they can be pretty underwhelming.
Yes, nasal strips are one of the go-to methods to stop snoring that, unfortunately, do not always do the trick. They can peel off in your sleep, they are a bit on the expensive side because you have to keep buying them, and sometimes they don’t even do enough to help.
But… they are also often overlooked because of these problems, when in fact, they may help out a lot more than most people realize.
Nasal strips are no miracle cure, and sometimes they just don’t pack enough of a punch to get the job done. But at the same time, they are also worth a try, because even if you just use them temporarily, they are often better than using nothing at all.
You may just be surprised at how much of a difference they can actually make. Plus, you can pick them up at the local pharmacy without a problem, which makes them super-accessible to virtually anyone.
There are a lot of stop snoring devices out there that could potentially help you with your snoring problems… but you will never know for sure if a certain device will work unless you try it out yourself.
The importance of being proactive about solving your snoring problems, however, cannot be overstated. Snoring can seriously mess with your life, health, and happiness… and should not be ignored.
