How it works, and how to stop snoring:

Snoring occurs because the soft tissues in the back of the throat vibrate and press against other throat anatomy causing resistance and turbulence – the snore sound. The antisnoring mouth guard or night guard brings the jaw forward which widens the back of the airway, reducing resistance and turbulence – which can stop the snoring.

About 50% of the adult population snores. Snoring, by itself, is not necessarily dangerous. However, there are possible consequences associated with snoring. Furthermore, snoring may be a symptoms of a serious sleep disorder, like sleep apnea. Information on sleep apnea, the signs and symptoms, treatments, and risk factors are listed below.

What causes snoring? There are several factors that relate to snoring.
Risk factors include advancing age – as we get older, we are more likely to snore.
Being a male also increases the risk.

There is a strong correlation between weight and snoring. The heavier and higher the BMI (body mass index), the more likely the chance of snoring. If overweight, losing weight can decrease or stop snoring.

Alcohol consumption also increase the risk of snoring and other sleep disorders. Avoiding alcohol before sleep time can also improve snoring.

Sleeping position effects snoring. Sleeping in the supine position (on the back) often yields more snoring.

More information on snoring devices – unrelated to device above:

There are several different types of snoring devices which work in different manners. There Tongue Stabilizing Devices (TSD) and Mandibular Advancing Devices (MAD), also called JAD or jaw advancing device.

As you know, snoring can cause much disruption to the people in your house. It can also be symptom of much more dangerous problem. It is important that you talk to your doctor or primary care provider if you have daytime sleepiness or other symptoms that might be suggestive of health problems.

When choosing a snoring device, one of the most important variables is comfort. Are you going to wear the device because it is comfortable. If it is not comfortable, then you are not going to wear it. It will not work if you are not wearing it.

Some Tongue Stabilizing Devices (TSD) work by sucking the tongue forward – essentially out of the mouth, or stabilizing the tongue out of the way . My moving the tongue forward, or downward, there is increase open space in the back of the throat. This decrease the amount of tissues that can vibrate in the back of the throat – basically reducing or eliminating snoring.

One of the benefits of the TSD compared to other snoring devices is that, generally, they do not cause jaw discomfort. They are less likely to cause TMJ or tooth shifting. For people who have dental issues or missing teeth, the TSD may be a more desirable option.

One of the complaints with TSD’s is that sometimes people feel uncomfortable with the position of the tongue. Also, there are several reports of increased salivation (more spit in the mouth).

Mandibular Advancing Devices (MAD) essentially work by moving the lower jaw forward which opens up the airway in the back of the throat. Like the TSD, MAD’s also move the tongue forward – along with the entire mandible.

The MAD’s used for treating sleep apnea are similar to many of the simple snoring devices listed here. They move the jaw forward.

With the MAD in place, the jaw moves forward, the airway becomes larger, and there is less tissue in the flow of air. This yields less turbulence and less snoring.
One of the most common complaints with MAD snoring devices is teeth shifting, tooth discomfort and teeth shifting.

For people with dental issues, the MAD may not be a suitable candidate.

FITTING OF THE SNORING DEVICES

The TSD’s are often a ‘one size fits all’. There are few variables with TSD’s. They are ready to use out of the box.

The MAD and MAD-like devices may require extra fitting. Some MAD stop snoring devices can simply be placed directly in the mouth and used.

Other, more advance snoring mouth guards, use a ‘boil and bite’ feature which allows for the personalization of the device.

These Boil and Bite devices allow for custom fitting with your mouth and teeth. Usually the devices are placed in boiling water for several seconds. After cooling the device for a few seconds, the snoring device is placed in the mouth. The user bites down on the moldable piece and pushes the soft plastic against the teeth.

Once cooled, these snore guards now fit the use, and only that user. The night guard device conforms directly to the owners mouth.

Some of these dental devices can be refitted if the impression is not correct. By simply repeating the process, the device can be refit.

Many of these MAD’s are now adjustable for snoring efficacy. Like the professionally made sleep apnea oral appliances, some of the snoring mouthpieces can have protrusion of the lower part of the guard adjusted.

Some of these adjustable devices require a tool for adjustment. By turning an allen wrench, the mandibular part of the mouthpiece can move forward or backward. This can allow for fine tuning of device based on efficacy vs. comfort.
Generally, the more forward the lower part, the less comfortable, and the more effective.

Of course, if the device is not comfortable, the user will not wear it.

Most of these devices are made of a thermoplastic. This like a rubbery plastic that has some pliability or flexibility. They feel and look like sports mouthguards. However, sport mouth guards and bruxism mouth devices to not usually move the jaw forward. They work in different ways.

Other features:

One MAD device has a built in tongue stabilizer which reports to bring added efficacy to eliminating snoring. Other devices have a snoring hole, or multiple snoring holes.

How much do snoring devices cost?

The cost of snoring devices range from about $30 – $150. Snoring mouthpieces that are made by dentists may cost >$500 – $1000.

How long do snoring devices last?

This depends on the type of device and how often it is used. Most snoring devices are not expected to last for more than 1 year.  Some may last for a few years.
Keep in mind that with grinding and clenching that the pieces may wear down.

What about dentures and snoring devices?

Most snoring devices do not work with denture users. The MAD’s require teeth as the ‘anchor’ of the mouth. There needs to be something to grip the mandible so that it can be moved forward.

Is a snore mouthpiece the same as a bruxism device or a sports mouthguard?

No, snoring devices are different that brux guards and sports mouthguards. They may look similar. They may feel the same. But, they work in different ways. MAD devices do offer some protective value for people who have bruxism or are teeth clenchers. Although MAD’s may prevent the destruction that is caused from bruxism and teeth grinding, it is unclear if they prevent consequences of teeth clenching – like abfractions.

Do I need a physician’s prescription or order for these treatments?

Some snoring treatments are offered over the counter (OTC). Snoring nose strips, and sprays (not recommended by this author) are offered without a doctor’s order. However, many of the MAD’s offered in the U.S. do require a physician order as they are listed as FDA Class II devices.

Why do I need a doctor’s order for simple snoring devices?

Because many of these devices are regulated by the US FDA, they are considered treatment devices. There is concern that many individuals that have more severe health issues, like obstructive sleep apnea, may be undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed, and have complications as a result of no clinician intervention.
In general, it is recommended that you speak with your physician and dentist about using these devices before you use them.

What is the difference between an expensive snoring device and less expensive one?

One of the most significant differences is adjustable and customization. The more adjustable and personalizable, the more complex and expensive. Many of the newer, and more expensive devices avoid latex materials and plastics that contain BPA. Latex has much potential to be allergenic to some individuals. BPA is be actively studies because of the consequences of absorption into the body. Most high quality food containers and medical devices avoid latex and BPA because known and possible risks.

Can I use snoring mouthpieces for treating sleep apnea?

Some snoring devices have an FDA indication for treatment of mild obstructive sleep apnea. Unless ordered in conjunction with physician care, you should not use a simple snoring device for the treatment of sleep apnea.

One of the risks of using a simple snoring device for the treatment of sleep apnea is that the device will not adequately treat all of the respiratory event during sleep. Essentially the user risks being under-treated. There is an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, deadly heart rhythms, and accidents from daytime sleepiness in patients with untreated obstructive sleep apnea.

What about Central Sleep Apnea?

Generally oral devices are not used for the treatment of central sleep apnea.

What should I do after getting a snoring device?

As mentioned above, it is good practice to talk to you doctor and dentist before starting any treatment. Having good dental care and following dental hygiene is important in maintaining oral health.  Once you have the device, you should have follow up with your doctor and dentist.

If you have pain or discomfort, this is something that should be discussed. If you have persistent snoring, pauses in breathing, witnessed apneas or gasps, or excessive daytime sleepiness, you may need to be evaluated for sleep apnea.

How do maintain and care for my anti snore mouth guard?

One of the most important things to do with your mouthguard is to keep it away from animals that like to chew things. Dogs are well known for using snore mouthpieces for chew toys. Keep your device in a protective container away from pets.

There are some special cleaning fluids which can be purchased to clean your device. Simply using water with a gentle tooth brush will keep particles off of the device and help to prevent fungus and bacteria from growing on the device.
