Weve all heard people talking about snoring. At group gatherings all over the world someone will mention that their partners snoring is keeping them awake at night, while their partner proudly declares that they dont snore at all. Maybe youve been the person who couldnt sleep through the snoring, or maybe you are the one whose own snoring has caused others to lose sleep at night.
If anyone has ever told you that you snore, did they also recommend Snore Guards to you? Or perhaps they someone recommended Snore Guards to your partner and you would like to know more about Snore Guards?
Its not just the people who are hearing the snoring who are losing a good nights sleep. The person who is snoring is often unaware that their own snoring causes them to wake up often during the night, which disrupts their own good nights sleep.
Primary Causes of Snoring
Snoring is caused when something is blocking part of your airways and the rush of air trying to get through the smaller passageway is the sound that you hear that we call snoring. Snore Guards were found to be effective in 99% of patients who used Snore Guards. Research studies show that both men and women snore. About half of the men studied were found to snore and about a third of the women were found to snore. So its a good thing that we have Snore Guards!
Sometimes it is only an occasional night of snoring or only occurs when you have allergies or a sinus infection. Wearing Snore Guards while sleeping during allergy season or when you have a sinus infection will reduce your snoring and give you (and your partner) a better nights sleep!
Other Causes of Snoring
But snoring is not just a nuisance when it comes to everyone else getting a good nights sleep. Snoring is often a symptom of another issue. Snoring can be a symptom of underdeveloped muscle tone or muscles that have relaxed too much during deep sleep or as a result of medication, like some sleeping pills, or alcohol use. And as we age those muscles become weakened and can also cause the same result. Using Snore Guards while sleeping would help keep the airways open so that it is easier to breathe and less snoring occurs.
Effects of Snoring
And snoring can lead to other, more serious medical issues. A pattern of constant snoring can lead to sleep apnea, which can then lead to other more serious medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, an enlarged heart, and even diabetes as the body produces more adrenalin as it works to cope with the stress of not having enough oxygen.
No matter what the cause of your snoring, it could be more than just keeping your partner awake at night. Contact your dentist today to find out if Snore Guards would be a good solution for your snoring.
