Frequently Asked Questions

About Snoring

What causes snoring?

Snoring occurs when muscles behind the tongue relax and narrow the airway during sleep. As air passes through while breathing, these soft tissues in the throat vibrate, resulting in the familiar snoring sound.

What features should a snoring mouthpiece have?

OAOSA recommends that an oral appliance should provide the user the ability to advance the lower jaw in one millimeter increments at any time. Oral appliances that employ hardware, i.e. screws, wires, nuts, and bolts, can compromise user’s health resulting in broken or chipped teeth. Those devices that utilize rubber bands, springs, or torsion to force the lower jaw forward under constant pressure may result in pain and TMJ. SnoreRx is the only snoring mouthguard available that offers users to adjust in one millimeter increments.
