Do you wake up tired and often feel irritable and sluggish during the day?
Snoring could be the villain… Snore Guard® could be your hero!
It’s estimated that up to 50% of adults have some snoring disorder. Snoring is such a common problem that people underrate its seriousness.
Snoring not only robs you of the rest you need but also of those closest to you.
What Causes Snoring?
The muscles and soft tissues in your throat and mouth automatically relax when you are asleep. Then the lower jaw and tongue drop back which helps block and decrease the airway opening. This results in an increase in the velocity of air flowing through your airway when you breathe. The increased velocity causes soft tissues in your mouth and throat to vibrate. It’s that tissue vibrating that makes the familiar snoring sound.
Snoring in its most severe form is the collapse of the upper airway so complete that the lungs may not receive oxygen for up to 30 seconds. This is called “Obstructive Sleep Apnea”. Your body triggers an internal alarm and you partially wake in response to this deprivation. This is usually accompanied by loud gasps for air that can last 3 seconds or more, until you fall asleep and they cycle starts all over again.
What Is The Solution?
Snore Guard® is a small oral appliance professionally fit by a dentist. It has a unique inner lining that is softened by heat during the fitting process. The unit is custom fitted to your individual needs. It fits snugly over your top teeth while you sleep, and is designed to prevent your tongue from dropping towards the back of your throat. This helps keep your airway open, effectively relieving the main cause of snoring.
