Posted in : Mouthpieces - The most effective snoring solution

When it comes to anti snoring aids, mouthpieces rank on top of the list. There is actually nothing else as convenient and quick like them as these are designed to give you virtually instant relief from snoring.

You can find many different kinds of anti snoring mouthpiece in the market and choose a high quality one that suits your situation. The two most common options are MAD (Mandibular Advancement Device) also known as a Jaw Retaining Device and TRD (Tongue Retaining Device). Both types have different mechanism and therefore help in different sort of snoring problems.

Jaw Retaining Mouthpieces

A Jaw Retaining Mouthpiece or a MAD moves your jaw forward from the natural position that helps you quit snoring. It holds your jaw against gravity and away from your throat when you sleep on your back. This position of jaw prevents the obstruction of your airway and therefore stops snoring. These are very simple devices yet effective.

Many MADs are made from thermoplastic which has a very special quality that makes these devices more comfortable to use. This material gets softer when put into boiling water for some time. Once it is taken out of water and cooled down to a safe temperature, it can easily fit into the mouth and holds the jaw tight for many hours. This process of wearing a mouth piece is commonly called the old boil and bite fitting process.

Tongue Retaining Mouthpiece

As the name suggest, a tongue holding device holds on to the tongue to prevent it from falling backwards and from obstructing the airway. It has the same principle as a jaw retaining device which holds and prevents the jaws from blocking the airway instead of preventing the tongue from falling backward.

This device makes sure that the tongue remains in the right position - forward and flat, while you are sleeping. It holds the tongue through the suction mechanism that pulls the tongue forward and holds the tip of it. This device is highly efficient in holding the tongue from falling backwards and blocking the airway. TRD does not fit over the teeth like a MAD or a Jaw Retaining Device. These are completely different and are much easier to use. It does not hurt or makes you uncomfortable while wearing a TRD. It is made of silicon that is soft and fits easily in the mouth giving you a relaxing snore free sleep.
