What type of Snorer are you?
- Are you a Tongue Based Snorer?
- Do you have Narrow or Collapsing Nostrils?
- Are you a Mouth Breather?
- Do you suffer from Allergies that might cause you to snore?
Type – Tongue Based Snoring
Snoring Solution– Tongue Based Snoring
Type: Mouth Breather
When you fall asleep your mouth falls open and the chances are you will snore. The flow of air through your mouth hitting the back of your airway is turbulent and causes the vibration we know as snoring. Breathing through your nose breaks the flow of air and reaches the back of the throat in a more gentler fashion.
Snoring Solution: Mouth Breather
The solution is to encourage air flow through the nose by holding your mouth closed. The Chin strap or Chin up strips are the solution you are looking for. These two options physically hold your mouth closed forcing you to breathe through your nose.
Another option is this oral appliance SnoreMate. It is a mandibular advancement device which holds you lower jaw forward but It also does not have a hole and forces you to breathe through your nose.
Type – Narrow or Collapsing Nostrils
Breathing is so natural for us that we probably do not think too much about it, until it becomes a problem. Naturally we are meant to breathe through our nose and only use our mouth if we either have a nasal defect or alternatively suffer from congestion. The problem could be just as simple as narrow nostrils.
