Is your partner complaining about the noise you make at night and is it hindering them from sleeping? This might have put a strain on your relationship and as silly as it may sound, some people actually lose their relationships due to snoring. When your partner begins to get irritated, your relationship can get a bit rocky. In this article, I'll write about medical ways that can help you to stop snoring.
However, there are a few things you can do which include:
- Losing weight
- Stop smoking
- Don't use alcohol close to bedtime
- Try not to sleep on your back
- Clear your stuffy nose
The above might prove abortive, but that does not mean you should stop searching. The cures below have been tested and seem to help. If one does not work for you, try the next. Surgical procedures should be the last resort.
Below Are A Few Trusted Cures
- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)
A machine blows pressurized air into your airway through a mask that is placed over your nose is placed by your bedside. This is known worldwide as the best way to treating snoring. However, not everyone is comfortable using this mask as it affects their sleep position and may cause some kind of pain.
- Palatal implants/Oral appliances
To help prevent the soft palate from collapsing, a small plastic is implanted into the soft palate. You could also use an oral appliance to lift your jaw's position. Note: do not carry out this procedure by yourself, you should consult a sleep and dental specialist.
- Surgical procedures
You could go through one or more surgical procedures to open your upper airway. These procedures include: Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), maxillomandibular advancement (MMA), tonsillectomy, Ablation Palatoplasty (TAP), and adenoidectomy.
We recommend starting with the most basic and non-invasive option first, and, if needed, continue trying different options until you find one that works for you.
