A Snore Guard is an oral appliance that resembles a thin, double-sided athletic mouthpiece. It’s very small and flexible. These have no masks, hoses, or batteries like some conventional sleep apnea devices. Snore Guards are made from a clear acrylic material and are very easy to clean with a regular toothbrush.
This appliance uses normal body reflexes to keep the airway open during sleeping. The device fits snugly on the upper and lower teeth. When the lower jaw relaxes, it gently rocks forward in a normal position, rather than sagging open and back. This keeps the tongue from slumping back into the throat and blocking the airway. Once breathing is eased, normal sleep becomes much easier.
