The major reason people snore a lot is due to weight – so success at losing those extra pounds might also mean quiet sleep. That’s not easy, though.
Even a quiet sleeper might snore after a big meal, or, especially, after alcohol too close to bedtime. If you are having trouble with snoring, it’s time to look at your alcohol pattern – a glass of wine with dinner is one thing, but a few drinks in the evening just before bedtime will not only likely cause snoring, it can have very serious effects on sleep quality, weight and general health.
From a medical perspective, the biggest problem with snoring is it is very often a sign of a more serious problem, obstructive sleep apnea.
Getting a simple device from the Internet or even your dentist without first finding out if you have sleep apnea means you might become a quiet sleeper but not avoid the extreme health risks of apnea. Dentist-provided devices must be the result of a sleep test – if that shows you only snore, then, by all means, get the simplest solution you can find.
