WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?
Two leading treatments for sleep apnea exist, and both have been proven to significantly reduce chronic snoring. One treatment comes from a CPAP machine and the other from oral appliances.
CPAP Machines are devices that keep your passages open by continuously pumping air through them. CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. If your airway isn’t able to collapse on you in the first place, it also won’t restrict your breathing to the point of loud snoring.
Oral Appliances look much like a mouthguard. It, too, keeps your airways open at night, but in a very different way. This brilliant device keeps your jaw and tongue forward, instead of relaxing back. This simple adjustment in jaw position can dramatically affect how much your air passage stays open. Snoring appliances can be a great option for those with obstructive sleep apnea.
