What is a Stop Snoring Device?

Many people come to our site looking for a stop snoring device. Oftentimes, they don't really know what they are looking for, but they've heard that there is a device out there that can stop snoring. This article will outline the two most common devices that can be referred to as a stop snoring device.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

If you are looking for a "stop snoring device" then this is the gold standard. CPAP blows air into your airway to prevent snoring and sleep apnea. Many people think that CPAP is only for sleep apnea, but it makes a very good stop snoring device as well. Talk to your sleep physician to find out if CPAP is the best way to treat your snoring.

Oral Appliance Therapy

An oral appliance is a dental device that juts your jaw forward at night to help with snoring. While not always the best way to treat sleep apnea, an oral appliance can be an effective stop snoring device. Again, talk to your sleep physician about whether this is the best option for you. If he/she thinks it is, then you will probably referred to a dentist to make one for you.

In summary, when looking for a good stop snoring device, CPAP and oral appliances are your two most legitimate options. As always, talk to a sleep physician first before deciding between the two. Your sleep physician will make sure that you don't have sleep apnea and will help you decide which option is the best for you.
