Snoring Chin Straps – Do They Really Work?
If you snore during sleep and always wake up with a dry mouth and throat, you most likely breathe through your mouth during sleep. Mouth breathing can cause a person to snore. And we all know that snoring also affects the quality of sleep of your partner or roommate. If this happens, your sleep companion will not get recharged due to lack of sleep. I’m sure you don’t want this to happen, do you? An affordable snoring device called a “snoring chin strap” may be the answer to this problem.
Most of the time, breathing through the mouth while sleeping causes people to snore. For these people, it’s impossible to breathe through their nose because of a nose disorder that may be caused by a previous injury. The nose can also be blocked due to allergies, infections or fever. When the nose is blocked, mouth breathing is inevitable.
Naturally, manufacturers and engineers have designed and produced various types of tools that aim to solve or at least remedy this nagging problem. There are devices that can be placed in the mouth like the Anti- Snoring Mouthpieces. Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the mouth and throat area. These mouthpieces clear the airway to prevent vibration, thus preventing snoring.
Just as effective but not as invasive is a Snoring Chin Strap. It aims to keep the mouth closed at night. You just have to wear this on your head and use the specialized cradle that comes with it. This cradle will prevent your mouth from opening during sleep. This tool is ideal for snorers who breathe through their mouth as a habit. By using the snoring chin strap, breathing through the nose is ensured for these people. But for mouth breathers who have nose defects, the nose problems should be corrected first. Also, a snoring mouthpiece may be the ideal device for them.
The snoring chin strap has a little downside; when worn, it can be quite weird-looking. However, the advantages that you’ll gain have greater value than this minor glitch. A good quality sleep not only for you but for your partner as well is its ultimate benefit.
Aside from getting rid of snoring, the snoring chin strap can also be beneficial in other ways. Some people have a more severe condition in which they hold their breaths for several seconds while asleep. This is called sleep apnea. A more serious health issue may result due to this. The best thing to do is to consult a physician so that you can undergo tests to correctly determine your condition. Some people with sleep apnea just acquire it by habit. These cases can be corrected by the snoring chin strap.
Making people breathe through their nose during sleep is the most important function of these straps. As I’ve already mentioned, snoring is caused by the vibrations of the soft tissues in the mouth and throat which is a result of the narrowing of the airways due to mouth breathing. By ensuring that the mouth is closed, these straps also keep the jaw in the proper position so that the airways will remain open.
If you’ve already used the snoring chin strap for quite some time now, try sleeping without it. This is to know if you’ve already acquired the ability to breathe through your nose while asleep. Your partner or roommate will be the better judge. Just keep on using the device in case you still snore and breathe through your mouth. Personally, after just several weeks of wearing the strap, I now breathe through my nose during sleep. And I don’t have to use it anymore because I’ve stopped snoring since.
My snoring solution is jaw supporter which keeping the lower jaw in an upward position increases the three dimensional space in the airway, reduces air velocity and soft tissue vibration. As a result it will help you to eliminate or substantially reduce snoring.
