What are Alternatives to Surgery for Snoring?

Is there a permanent cure for snoring? The short answer is maybe. Surgery should be a last resort when it comes to trying to solve your snoring problem. While snoring surgery can be effective for stopping snoring, it’s also a highly invasive way to address the issue. Results can also vary from patient to patient. Some who have undergone snoring surgery report that it only reduces the volume of their snoring.

Most people would like to avoid going under the knife if there is an easier option. Most people ask themselves “How can I stop snoring without surgery?” Fortunately, there are many alternatives to get you on the road to a good night’s sleep. We have compiled the top four products to solve your snoring issue and help you get quality sleep.

Position is everything

If your sleep position at night is causing your snoring, a positional therapy sleep device may solve the problem. It encourages and trains you to sleep on your side, helping to keep your airways open and reducing snoring.

The comfortable device features a breathable belt with a foam wedge that sits on your upper back to prevent you from rolling onto your back while you sleep. Using it nightly is simple: You just attach it around your waist before bed. It’s lightweight and features a non-slip breathable mesh belt with enhanced hook and loop fastener.

Breathe better

A nasal breathing aid can improve airflow to relieve sinus congestion and reduce snoring. The ZQuiet Breathe Nasal Breathing Aid features patented flexible wings that fit all nose sizes and gently expand your nasal passage to increase airflow and oxygen intake up to 58 percent to promote healthy, restorative sleep. It also helps ensure high oxygen intake and supports the immune system by filtering out viruses and bacteria.

Keep your chin up

Many snorers find they snore because they open their mouth during the night. To correct this, consider a chin strap. This is a simple, safe, and effective way to promote nose breathing while you sleep. The chin strap helps to reduce snoring and prevent mouth and throat dryness by supporting your chin to keep your mouth closed.

Commit to change

Wearing a mouthpiece is one of the most effective ways to stop snoring. Our best-selling ZQuiet 2-Size Comfort System anti-snoring mouthpiece prevents snoring by stabilizing and advancing the jaw forward to maintain an open airway while you sleep. A mouthpiece is an adjustment as most of us are not used to wearing one at night, but if you stick with it, the results are truly amazing.

Give yourself a little time to research and find the perfect solution for your snoring before opting for surgery. You will want to give yourself a chance to try other proven solutions prior to going under the knife.
