Mouth Breathers

If you are a "mouth breather" and sleep with your mouth open you will find the Somni Snore Guard or Snore Calm Chin-Up Strips suitable remedies for your snoring. When we breathe in through the nose the air passes over the curved part of the soft palate in a gentle flow into the throat without creating unnecessary turbulence.

When we breathe in through the mouth however, the air hits the back of the throat head on and can create enormous vibrations in the soft tissue. The Somni Snore Guard and Snore Calm Chin-Up Strips are designed to keep your mouth closed during sleep, thus preventing mouth breathing. These may be used in conjunction with a nose spray or nasal dilator to eliminate the snoring.

You will have already tried the "tongue" test. Now try two further tests: Open your mouth and make a snoring noise. Now close your mouth and make the same noise. If you can only snore with your mouth open then you are a "mouth breather". Somni Snore Guard or Snore Calm Chin-Up Strips will help to keep your mouth closed and encourage you to breathe correctly through your nasal airway.

Try this "nose" test: Looking in a mirror, press the side of one nostril to close it. With your mouth closed, breathe in through your other nostril. It it tends to collapse try propping it open with the clean end of a matchstick. If breathing is easier with the nostril propped open, nasal dilators may solve your snoring problem.

Additionally, some people just do not have the muscle tone to keep their jaw from dropping open during sleep. This can be easily remedied with Snore Calm Chin-Up Strips.
