If you suffer from snoring, or rather if your roommate suffers from your snoring, you should really consider getting a checkup. If it isn’t something serious like sleep apnea, the condition where you stop breathing when sleeping, then you just have a really annoying snoring condition. So what to do now? Should you just move out? Or get Expensive surgery? Or should you just buy one of those snoring mouth pieces. The third option is a great one! But do they work you ask? Yes the really do! Compared to the old solutions and devices that looks and sounds like they were made during a time when medicine was hit and miss, the snoring mouthpieces such MAD or Mandibular Advancement Device and TSD or Tongue Stabilizing Device has been given positive reviews and a lot praises regarding how effective they are, not only that but some snorers on their zyppah reviews said that these devices helped them to ease snoring considerably.
The numbers don’t lie! in a study where subjects were told to use the mouthpieces they showed positive responses and almost 90% of the participants continued to use the devices to manage their snoring. The reviews of each subject ranged from ‘very’ to ‘moderately’ satisfy with the results of the device.
So which mouthpieces are being talked about here, nowadays the less reliable mouthpieces has been phased out of the market. Nowadays the only two that you will find, is the Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) and the Tongue Stabilizing Device (TSD), uses a similar way to stop the snoring but using different methods (note: there are a few side effects to that)
The TSD uses a method where the tongue is stabilized and positioned in a way that the throat’s opening is widened, the cause of the snoring sound is the narrowing of the airway coupled with loose or flabby tissue which vibrates when air passes through. So, increasing the opening of the air passage with allow air to flow freely lessening or completely eliminating the vibration along with it the snoring noise.
Quite similarly the Mandibular Advancement Device achieves the same result, the widening of the air passage, but through a different method. The device pushes the lower jaw forward to increase the width of the air passage.
It is a popular opinion that the TSD is a more comfortable device to use, but with a slightly higher price and very few options with the device, most choose the cheaper MAD. But the Mandibular device requires fitting through dentists or orthodontist to work effectively.
Apart from a Sleep Apnea Machine, which is costly and quite constrictive to use, and Surgery which is a bit expensive and a challenge in itself to go through, the mouthpieces are the best solutions to your snoring problem and you roommate’s sleeping problem. It is in your best interest to at least try out one of these mouthpieces to remedy your snoring, I am quite certain that you will be happy with the results.
Every device has their pros and cons, if you were to be turned off and completely avoid things just for the reason that it has its faults, then would end up not trying anything at all.
