Sleep is an essential aspect to your quality of life and plays an enormous role in your well-being. Sleep is a time period when your body recovers and heals. When your quality of sleep is diminished it becomes evident over time.
One of the biggest and most common issues related to sleep problems is snoring. Many people have this issue, in fact, it is estimated that over 90 million Americans snore while they sleep. However, what many people do not know is that there is a spectrum of the impact snoring may have on the individual. On one end of the spectrum, there are people who snore and there’s not much more to it. For the others, snoring may be the symptom for a bigger problem like sleep apnea. There are sleep studies to help differentiate which kind of snorer the subject is.
If you do not have sleep apnea, yet you still snore, then there are simple solutions to this problem of “simple snoring”. There are oral pieces that can be applied that will help you and whoever sleeps in your household enjoy a quiet night’s peace. They are similar in concept to that of a retainer or a mouthguard because they are removable and only need to be worn during certain times, in this case, when you sleep. The reason snoring occurs is due to a constricted airflow. This solution is noninvasive and works to help reposition your jaw in order to allow more airflow while you’re breathing.
