If you or a loved one is kept up at night due to the snoring of the other, the problem can be resolved by having the person who snores insert a type of mouthpiece at bedtime, that is comfortably worn while sleeping. It is impossible to snore while the device is worn. It works by slightly changing the jaw position to open the airway. The custom fitted applicance is made from an impression taken in the dental office and can be ready to wear in a week. This same device can help people who suffer from sleep apnea.
