Snoring Chin Strap Review.
Snoring Chin Straps also known as jaw supporters have become very common amongst snorers. Adult especially, love to use it as they are less restless in bed.
Some snorers have a habit of breathing through their mouth and cannot breathe properly through their nose. This causes them to snore.
This is where a snoring chinstrap serves as a good solution to snoring. Though a chinstrap does not cure snoring in itself, it definitely reduces your snoring at night or whenever you sleep.
How does it work?
When you sleep at night and breathe through your mouth your throat becomes dry and causes your throat tissues to vibrate and inadvertently cause you to snore loudly.
A snoring chin strap is a device you wear that wraps around your head, chin and jaws so as to keep your mouth closed. By keeping your mouth closed the chinstrap keeps you breathing through your nose thereby eliminating snoring.
You could be breathing through your nose because of a stuffy nose. If you have a blocked nose, do not use a chin strap as this device could become dangerous. Instead, use a snoring spray on your nose to clear your nose before attempting to use a chin strap.
Research shows that 85% of people who use this device have shown success with it.
This device actually looks a little bit awkward, but if you snore or have a bedmate that does looks do not really matter.
Types of Snoring Chin Straps
There two basic types of chin straps.
- The first type has an adhesive strip and a jaw supporting strap that attaches to each side of your cheek.
- The second one is worn around the chin and goes over the head. This type of chinstrap keeps your jaw and head forward so as to keep your tongue from falling back and blocking your throat and opens up the air way so as to allow the free flow of air.
Both types are effective and still achieve the same effect of keeping your mouth closed when you sleep.
Using chin straps for snoring is now popular as more and more snorers have testified to its effectiveness.
