Tales of the Stop Snoring Devices

Snoring is nothing new. Anybody embarrassed by their snoring should realize that it’s very common. But, despite being common, it can also be dangerous.

We’ve written a lot about the many side effects of sleep deprivation. That’s because millions of people could be negatively impacted by poor sleep without knowing it. That’s bad news when it comes to your well-being.

Informing people empowers them. We want to give that power to people like you.

But, that leaves us with a question. Once you are aware of your snoring, what could it mean to your health?

Luckily, the inventive human race has come up with not just one, but many solutions. We’re going to share some of those solutions with you.

Drastic Measures: Surgery to Alleviate Snoring

When the sleep disruptions caused by snoring become too much, your very quality of life could depend on making it stop.

For this reason, many people elect for surgeries that will stop their snoring.

Surgery may be necessary for very severe cases of snoring or sleep apnea. But, any surgery comes with its risks. Besides the risks, surgery also requires a brief hospitalization and a comparatively great deal of down time. It’s also considered invasive.

For mild or moderate cases of snoring, sleep apnea, and related conditions, the market provides a wide variety of options. Most of these options come in the form of the stop snoring device.

Safer Solutions: Stop Snoring Devices

When it comes to putting an end to snoring, stop snoring devices take the cake. They’re the most popular solutions today. There’s a good reason for this. Most people prefer to use these devices because they’re:

  • Less invasive
  • Highly effective
  • More affordable

They also come in many forms, making it easy for users to find the best option for them.

Orthopedic Pillows

One of the great unsung heroes of snoring solutions is the orthopedic pillow.   ortho pillow

These pillows come in a variety of shapes. Every shape is designed to move the head in a different way. Why so many shapes? Because people come in different shapes! They also sleep in different positions. Put these two together and we need many pillow shapes to help get our heads in the right position.

For mild cases of snoring, these orthopedic pillows can bring effective relief.

When it comes to snoring cessation devices, these pillows are a simple, non-intrusive solution. But, pillows aren’t enough to correct all snoring.

CPAP Machines

For severe cases of snoring, a CPAP machine is sometimes used.  

CPAP machines gently pump air into the user’s airways. The acronym CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure.  cpap

To use a CPAP machine, you need to wear a mask. This mask is what directs the air into your windpipes.

While CPAP machines can alleviate many of the symptoms of sleep apnea and decrease snoring, the machine itself is often loud. It also doesn’t look particularly sexy. That can be a big deterrent for those of us with sleep partners. (Or those of us hoping for one!)

COAT (Continuous Open Airway Therapy)® – A New, Innovative Stop Snoring Device (That’s Sexier)

In recent years, a new device has started to gain popularity. This is the COAT (Continuous Open Airway Therapy)® stop snoring device.

COAT stands for continuous open airway therapy.  somnodent oral device

What is it? This idea behind this medical device is simple: it moves the jaw forward. This subtle movement opens the airway, putting a stop to snoring. Another little benefit? You can literally breathe easier at night!

It’s FDA cleared and approved by AASM.

How do you get it? You’ll need to talk to your  dentist about the SomnoDent.

As a patient, you can take the sleep apnea assessment before seeing your dentist to find out if the SomnoDent is a good solution for you.
