What Factors Cause Snoring?
Often times, snoring occurs because the soft tissues of the throat and mouth are more relaxed, which causes one’s air passage to become smaller. With less room in the airway, individuals are not able to breathe properly as the air moves closer to the soft tissues causing them to vibrate, which results in snoring. However, there are about four main factors that are also known to cause snoring including:
- Alcohol consumption
- Sleep aides or Sedatives
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
What’s it like Wearing the MAD?
Since the MAD is specifically designed to be worn while you sleep, it is simple to use and comfortable. Keep in mind that it won’t keep your mouth closed while you sleep but more so that it will halt your snoring tendencies especially for individuals who experience sinus congestion and allergies. While you may feel a small amount of stiffness in the jaw the first few mornings after use, most people don’t feel the stiffness after removal of the MAD. With consistent use of the MAD, you will notice an incredible difference as you obtain a higher quality of sleep and improved mood throughout each day.
