Top 10 Tips On How You Can Stop Snoring
These are listed from Most to Least Effective
Nightlase™ Laser Snoring and Sleep Apnea Therapy are one of the most successful snoring remedies.
Laser Therapy is a simple nonsurgical procedure, and the best thing is that it won’t become a hindrance in your daily life activities. The laser will open your airway by gently tightening and shrinking the soft palate in your mouth, and the airway between your throat and tongue will remain open while you are sleeping.
Other anti-snoring aids or sleep interventions like (continuous positive airway pressure) CPAP machines, and oral sleep devices only help you when you are using them, whereas Nightlase Sleep Apnea Treatment helps you breathe better all the time. The blockage of your airways is the reason that your throat muscles vibrate, which causes snoring. There are many issues that can contribute to snoring causes and seeing a dentist that Is trained in sleep medicine and obstructive sleep apnea is usually the best plan.
I had an extremely high blood pressure of (240/120) for over 22 years, and every doctor told me It was so severe there was nothing more they could do for me and to make sure I had my Will up to date. No medical Doctor or Hospital was able to help me during that time. No medicines or Doctor was able to help me or lower my blood pressure even after I changed my diet and exercised daily.
Dr. Skinner suspected that I had sleep apnea, and he did a sleep study on me. The results were I had mild sleep apnea, so he suggested that he could fix that for me with Nightlase. That non-surgical laser opens your restricted airway and allows in much more air making it easier for you to breathe.
Nightlase worked perfectly for me, I can breathe better and no longer snore or have sleep apnea, and the best part is that it lowered my blood pressure! Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you, Dr. Skinner! You did what no other Doctor could ever do for me. Thank you for saving my life.

2. Anti-Snoring, Sleep Apnea Devices or Appliances
Anti-snoring Sleep Oral Appliance devices are custom-made and should be fitted and made by an expert. Most over-the-counter sleep appliances use a mouth guard and try to use a one size fits all approach, everyone’s bite and smile are unique, and this method almost never works. What you really need is a dentist who is board-certified and an expert in building you a custom sleep appliance or, if necessary, using a palate expander.
3. Invisalign® Orthodontics
Orthodontics can change the way you smile by aligning your teeth. Invisalign clear braces can help to open your airway permanently and give you an amazing smile you deserve at the same time!
4. Explore Surgical Options
For some patients with serious snoring issues, sleep apnea and snoring surgery treatments may be necessary to get the result you need. A surgeon can change your nasal passages structure and opens it to allow maximum airflow.
5. Using a CPAP Machine
A CPAP machine (an acronym for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) helps you to breathe easily at night by supplying air pressure through a sleep apnea mask to your mouth, however, it is uncomfortable, and you will face difficulty in sleeping while wearing a CPAP mask, even your partner won’t like the CPAP mask getting in between the two of you. That is the reason most people prefer to go for other solutions to avoid CPAP Machines.
6. Sleep On Your Side
Your airway can collapse and close off if you sleep on your back because while you are sleeping on your back, gravity will work against the muscle, and sometimes it is the reason people snore. Simply turning on your side allows gravity to work with you instead.
7. Change Your Daily Life Habits
If you want to breathe better at night, then you need to change a few of your daily life habits, The habits are mentioned below
- Make sure you’re getting enough water because bringing enough water can act as a snoring remedy. The water will clear your airways, and it will help you to breathe easily while sleeping.
- Avoid alcohol within 2 hours of bedtime. Sometimes drinking alcohol before bedtime becomes a reason you snore while sleeping.
- Stop taking sedatives if you can because sometimes sedatives can cause sleep disorders.
- Stop smoking. Smoking can cause chronic allergies, and these allergies could lead to snoring.
- Lose weight. If you have gained too much weight, then weight loss can also help you to breathe better at night.
8. Treat Your Chronic Allergies
Try using a decongestant if you have persistent allergies. A stuffy nose can be a cause of your snoring habits. Most allergy medications will help you decrease the mucus in your sinuses, and it will help you to breathe easily.
9. Use Nasal Strips or a Nasal Dilator
Sometimes nasal congestion can be a reason you snore. If you are a light snorer, try a stick-on nasal strip or a nasal dilator to open up your nasal passages at night. Try breathing through your nose while sleeping, it will lower the risk of snoring and sleep apnea.
10. Use Sleep Apnea Pillows
If you place a sleep apnea pillow under your head while sleeping, it will help you to breathe easily. Just 4 inches of head elevation works to diminish snoring and keep your upper airway open by preventing gravity from fully working to close your airway.
