These days more and more people are looking for products to stop snoring, but are these products actually good remedies for snoring or are they just scams? Let’s take a closer look at some of these products and see how well they work.
Devices that go inside your mouth or you put over your face are some of the more popular snoring options. Dental appliances are designed to move your lower jaw forward and allow the airways to remain open.
You can find appliances such as a Mandibular Advancement Appliance that is custom made and tailored to fit your mouth by a dentist.
Do they work? In many cases yes and in others no. Its hit and miss but one thing is for sure, the cost is high for these types of products to stop snoring. You can expect to pay up to $1,000 or more. One other point that you should consider is how easy will it be for you to sleep while having something in your mouth. For many people it is too cumbersome and uncomfortable.
CPAP Sleep Mask
A CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) sleep mask is designed to aid in keeping the throat from collapsing and causing you to snore. The mask is connected to a pump that forces pressure to the throat.
The cost for this device is anywhere from $1,000 and up. What most people find after a short while is that it is not comfortable and very inconvenient to use, although it has proven to be effective.
Another one of the many solutions to stop snoring is a snoring pillow. These specially designed foam snoring pillows are made in a way to keep a person sleeping on their side instead of their back.
You can find these pillows available for anywhere between $20 – $75. I didn’t experience success myself in using one of these pillows; but they may work well for others.
You will find a wide variety of stop snoring sprays on the market that claim to eliminate the problem. Most of these claim that the spray will lubricate the nasal passages and airways. That’s well and good, but it doesn’t fix the problem. Having a dry throat is not the reason for snoring.
You can find these stop snoring sprays for $10 – $25. One word of caution; nasal sprays can become addictive and even lead to other side effects with long term use.
If you intend to use any products to stop snoring, keep your safety in mind first and foremost. Read all directions and any warning labels. If the product does not look like it would be comfortable to use, move on and try something else. There are ways to stop snoring; you just need to find the right one for your particular case.
