Tooth grinding, clenching and snoring not only cause dental injury, but have serious effects on reducing your (and probably your partner’s) ability to get a good night’s sleep.

Snoring is almost always caused by a restricted airflow at the back of the throat. This happens when the jaw falls to the back of the mouth when relaxed during sleep, thus forcing air between the tongue and the back of the throat, making the throat vibrate loudly – resulting in snoring.

This effect is made worse by lying on your back, causing the jaw to fall back more. Snoring will occur more frequently worse when overweight, or relaxed after a drink or two.

The most common anti-snoring measure is the use of a soft-moulded mouth guard also known as an anti-snoring device.


Put a Stop to Snoring!

An ultra-comfort mouth guard relaxes the jaw muscles which prevents teeth grinding and clenching thus alleviates problems that may cause dental injuries such as Bruxism, TMJ and related symptoms such as facial muscle pain, spasms, neck and joint pain, insomnia, shoulder pain and headaches. The primary benefit of sleeping with a mouth guard is the noticeable reduction in snoring.

At Holford Partners Curaden, we will measure and provide you with a true custom fit gum shield or mouth guard which is a moulded bite splint for your teeth. Individual adjustments are made to ensure the guard fits securely and comfortably.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anti-snoring devices work by keeping the airways open and preventing the tongue and soft tissues from collapsing into the throat and blocking the airway.

Yes, anti-snoring devices are considered safe for most people to use. However, it’s always advisable to consult a doctor before using such devices, especially if snoring is accompanied by other symptoms such as gasping for air during sleep, excessive daytime sleepiness, or pauses in breathing during sleep.

The type of anti-snoring device that works best for you depends on the underlying cause of your snoring. Your dentist will help determine the best device for you.

Anti-snoring devices can reduce the severity of sleep apnoea symptoms and improve sleep quality. However, they are not a cure for sleep apnoea. In some cases, you may recommend additional treatments such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy.

Some people may experience immediate results, while others may take a few nights to adjust to using the device. The length of time it takes to see results varies from person to person.

Here are some ways to help reduce or stop snoring:

1. Sleep on your side: Sleeping on your back can cause the tongue and soft tissues in your throat to relax and partially block the airway, leading to snoring. Sleeping on your side can help keep the airways open and reduce snoring.

2. Lose weight: Excess weight, especially around the neck, can put pressure on the airways and cause them to narrow, leading to snoring.

3. Avoid alcohol and sleeping pills: Alcohol and sleeping pills can relax the muscles in your throat, leading to snoring. Avoid consuming alcohol and sleeping pills, especially before bedtime.

4. Treat nasal congestion: Nasal congestion can make it difficult to breathe through your nose and increase snoring. Treating nasal congestion with decongestants, nasal sprays, or other treatments can help reduce snoring.

5. Try an anti-snoring device: Anti-snoring devices such as Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs) and Tongue Stabilizing Devices (TSDs) can help keep the airways open and reduce snoring.

6. Practice good sleep hygiene: Maintaining a consistent sleep schedule, creating a relaxing sleep environment, and engaging in relaxing activities before bedtime can help improve sleep quality and reduce snoring.

6. Consult a doctor: If snoring is accompanied by other symptoms such as gasping for air during sleep, excessive daytime sleepiness, or pauses in breathing during sleep, it may be a sign of sleep apnoea. A doctor can evaluate your symptoms and determine the best course of treatment.

It’s important to remember that everyone’s body and sleep patterns are unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. It may take some time to find the most effective solution for reducing or stopping snoring.
