Snoring help needed
Answered 2 years ago
I was wondering if anyone has had experience with wearing/using a “mandibular advancement splint”. Apparently it looks a bit like a mouth guard and holds your jaw in a certain position while you sleep to stop you from snoring. I have had a sleep study done and have been diagnosed with mild sleep apnoea and the specialist has recommended this.
It is quite expensive so I was just after the experiences of others before I go ahead. I need something that will work as I am keeping my husband awake at night.
Have an answer?
I have done a deep dive into nose breathing.
I even tape my mouth shut to sleep and I sleep 8 hours and wake with great energy and do not move in the bed.
6 months now every night
Often, if I am in bed with him, he ends up getting shitty coz if my snoring and goes to the couch. Hoping something will work for me. Just need to find time to do the test, I work 5 days a week...
It took 4 different pillow purchases but i found my match & haven't looked back.
Our experience was they are using data to make decisions but really don't know. You need to be aware it might be brilliant or it might not work.
DH had to keep going back & tried several recommendations that didn't work, including the mouth guard, until he ended up on cpap. A very expensive process.
Cpap is a pain tho, so the mouth guard is definitely worth a try first.
