Tongue Base Snorer

If you are what is termed a "tongue base snorer", this means that your tongue is dropping to the back of your throat causing an obstruction.

A small "gum shield" device known as a MAD (Mandibular Advancement Device) such as the Tomed SomnoGuard can gently bring your lower jaw forward and keeps your tongue away from the back of your throat, thus preventing the obstruction. If you can make a snoring noise with your mouth both open and closed try this simple test: stick your tongue out as far as it will go and grip it between your teeth. Now try and make a snoring noise. If the snoring noise is reduced with your tongue in this forward position then you are probably a "tongue base snorer".
