How to stop snoring
The noises you hear when somebody snores are generated by the soft tissue at the back of the throat vibrating. In many cases, people snore because they’ve been drinking or they’re lying on their back. It’s also very common to snore when you have a cough or a cold, which makes it harder to breathe. In these instances, you usually find that you stop snoring when you feel better or change your sleeping position. In other cases, however, there may be underlying causes, which result in the body not getting oxygen because the airway is restricted. Risk factors for persistent snoring include allergies, smoking and being overweight.
Sometimes, making simple changes such as avoiding alcohol in the evenings, sleeping on your side and taking medication for allergies can help to reduce the severity of snoring. In other cases, altering your lifestyle, for example, doing more exercise, losing weight and giving up smoking may be beneficial. We understand that it’s not easy to quit smoking or overhaul your diet, and we are able to offer advice and support.
If you’ve tried to iron out potential issues and eliminate possible causes of snoring, and you’re still struggling, we may recommend using devices that are designed to open up the airway and help you breathe more easily. We can provide you with a mandibular advancement device, which pushes the lower jaw forward slightly, or with a tongue retaining device, which holds the tongue in position while you snooze.
If you have any questions about our treatments and remedies for snoring, or you’d like tailored advice, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We can organise a consultation at a time that is convenient to you to discuss possible treatment options and changes you could make at home to try and restore peaceful nights.
