Any device that you put in your mouth before going to bed in hopes that it will reduce your snoring can be considered a mouthpiece for snoring relief. These devices have worked wonders for myself and others, as they are very effective in stopping the problem at the source. It fits into the mouth comfortably and some of them can even be effective in stopping Bruxism, which is a nasty condition where you grind your teeth in the middle of the night.
Sleep Apnea can be a very annoying condition indeed. It is similar to snoring, but far worse in many ways. Snoring is a sound made when a flap blocks the airways between you mouth, nose, and lungs.
Sleep Apnea is similar to this condition, but it is unique in that the flap is blocked for a prolonged period of time, and also to the extent that it temporarily stops your breathing. These episodes last anywhere from 10 to 20 seconds, but they have the potential to last much longer.
What is Sleep Apnea?
According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, sleep apnea is a condition where your sleeping is interrupted by a lack of breathing. This lack of breathing is caused for the same exact reasons that snoring is caused, but it’s a more extreme form of the condition. Your sleeping is constantly interrupted when your breathing stops.
