Anti Snore Chin Strap, Singapore
The Anti Snore Chin Strap which you buy from our online shop here in Singapore is one of the easiest and most convenient anti snore solution to use, among all anti snoring devices. And therefore, it is usually the first piece of anti snore solution to try, before you proceed for other anti snore solution or more drastic procedures.
While each snorer respond differently to different types of anti-snoring solution,the anti snoring chin strap is effective for snorers who snore through their mouth.
What causes snoring?
Snoring result from air flow in and out of your throat being obstructed during sleep, and thus creating the vibrating noise of the tissues blocking the passage way in your throat.
During sleep, your muscles go into deep relaxation, the jaw falls backwards, and the chin tends to drop down. The muscles in the roof of your mouth, tongue and throat also relaxes, and tend to fall backwards, narrowing the airways in your throat. Air flow in and out of your throat are thus obstructed, causing the vibration of the tissues that results in the snoring sound.
For serious cases of air flow blockage, it may result in sleep apnea. In which case, you need to consult your doctor for treatment.
The anti snoring chin strap keeps your mouth closed, and holds your jaw in an optimum position, during sleep, which reduces the risk of the tongue and throat tissues from falling back to block the airways, thus reduces snoring.
Does the Anti Snore Chin Strap work for everyone
Snorers could be classified as either mouth snorer or nose snorer. The anti snore chin strap would potentially work for those that are snoring through their mouth.
If you are a nose snorer or your snoring is because of nasal congestion, the chin strap would not help.
For those with obstructive sleep apnea(OSA) and are using the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine, and are sleeping with their mouth open, the doctor may advise to use the CPAP in combination with a chin strap.
CPAP therapy forces a constant flow of air through your throat to keep the airways from collapsing.
And for patient who slept with their mouth open, the air delivered from the CPAP machine would escape via the open mouth. Therefore, the chin strap when used together with CPAP machine,would help to keep the mouth closed during sleep.
Correct use of the Anti Snore Chin Strap
When you start using the anti snoring chin strap, do try for at least a few days to about 1 week, and ask your partner to observe if your snoring reduces before you conclude it does not help.
