Snoring - From Nasal Sprays To Surgeries

Aug 30, 2008
Snoring would have been nothing if all people sleep alone in their solo beds, away from anyone that could hear. But as we all know, most of us have bed partners who are often get annoyed with sleep-disturbing noises.Good thing, there is already a wide spectrum of stop snoring remedies that may find yours (or your partner's) relief.

Nasal sprays are normally used by mild snorers who would not want to get bothered with attaching nasal strips and clips at night or of taking the permanence of nasal surgeries.While reports on the use of nasal sprays vary, it still shows that some snorers find good use in them.

Nasal sprays work by tightening and lubricating the muscles surrounding the throat and the mouth. This way, the vibration caused by excess muscles would be set off, thus the production of sounds can be prevented. There are no definite claims on the lasting effects of such sprays so they would only be effective so long as the use is continued.

Nasal sprays are not only helpful for mild snorers. Snoring may also occur due to change of weather, diet or any factor that can trigger its causes. Such cases can be resolved through using nasal sprays.

While most stop snoring remedies focus on the obstructive tissues that cause the blockages in the air passages, there are those that resolve things through keeping the outside mechanisms from triggering the snores.

Well, there are types of snorers who breathe on their mouths. Mouth breathing is known to be one of the many causes of the vibrating sounds during sleep. It has been observed that once breathing is shifted towards nasal processes, some types of snoring can be helped.

When one's mouth is open, the jaw will drop. Thus, creating space where the tongue may fall back towards the throat. When this occurs, vibration is possible. If one's tongue is kept from collapsing, it is less likely that the throat would produce snores.

Chin cushions and chinstraps will keep your mouth in place. But how does keeping one's mouth close helps against snoring? The chinstrap works by holding the jaws together which prevent them from falling apart. Chin cushions, on the other hand, have the added benefits of preventing the head from dropping forward. This way, easier breathing can be facilitated since the airways are wider when the head is kept back.

Taping the mouth can often be awkward but this does not necessarily mean that the technique is ineffective. Chin up strips are tapes worn beneath the mouth to help redirect mouth breathing towards nasal breathing.

The advantage of which is that it does not prevent the mouth from moving freely through covering it but it lays its support at the bottom of the lip. Thus, one can sneeze, cough and breathe in the mouth at will. The disadvantage though is that when this occurs, the effectivity of the chin up strip is lessened.

All the snoring remedies mentioned here are just aids to relieve you from the troubles of snoring. They can't exactly cure your condition. If you want permanent solution, the best option you may run to is surgery. Be careful though that long term effects (and possible damage) go with this decision. Careful examination of your condition must be done and careful decision making must be made.
