Many people treat snoring as a simple condition that can be ignored or just dealt with later – possibly because they live alone or because their partners can ignore it. In fact, sometimes people do not even realize that others are constantly annoyed by their snoring.
The reason for this is simple: Most snorers don’t even know they snore!
Meanwhile, some people seem to think that this is a natural, inevitable condition for them, and one that does not need to be cured. However, snoring issues can often cause a lot of future problems; it could even indicate a more dangerous present health problem, so it is always better to solve your snoring problem as soon as you can.
Snoring, especially for people who are already married or living with a partner, can be a very annoying problem for that person’s partner. It might also lead to relationship problems. However, sometimes snoring can also indicate a dangerous health condition, called obstructive sleep apnoea, which could even cause fatal damage to your body. So, if you have not reached the age of 30 yet, it might be a good idea to solve your severe snoring problem as soon as possible, even if you are living on your own and you sleep alone.
The first move for many snorers, of course, is to consider using one of the many advertised ‘stop snoring’ devices to attempt to cure the problem. But is this the smartest move for you?
There are many solutions for snoring problems, including herbal medicines, stop snoring devices, and surgery. But before going into more depth about the solutions, it is essential to know what the common causes of snoring are.
Snoring happens when the flow of air is obstructed in your mouth and nose. It can be caused by natural reasons, like age and gender. Men are comparatively more likely to snore than women, and middle-aged people are more likely to snore than younger people. However, there are other less well-known causes of snoring like alcohol intake and sleep posture. Obesity can also leads to snoring, and people with nasal problems would also experience snoring problems. Some people are also born with abnormalities in the soft tissues in their throat that create a tendency to snore.
The first step to fight snoring is STOP the bad habits that may be causing the condition. Stop drinking alcohol; avoid sleeping on your back, and so on. People who are obese may want to make a real push to get to their ideal body weight, which can greatly affect all areas of health. However, for people who are obese and those whose snoring is caused by natural causes, more complex solutions are often needed to stop the snoring.
If surgery is too expensive or too scary, then talk to your doctor. He more than likely will recommend using a stop snoring device such as a dental mouthpiece. They have a terrific success record and are fully endorsed and recommended by the NHS.
SleepPro offer the full range of solutions from a simple “out of the box version” which is so well priced that you can trial it to see if it works for you – and if it does there is a more customised version that will mould to your specific requirements – and you can even get the money back for the first basic product that you tried.
In fact why not consider a professionally fitted device made especially for you. These are a little more expensive, but tend to be even more effective than the two previous “out of the box” solutions.
Take a good look at the various options offered by Sleeppro including their latest SFA version – currently the ultimate in comfort, fit and adjustment.
If you do go down this popular road then make sure to consult with your dentist in order to ensure the best fit for your jaw.
