Do you snore? The Knight Guard has the solution
Take the self-assessment survey now
Snoring occurs when during normal sleep the muscles that control the tongue and soft palate hold the airway open. These muscles relax during sleep. The tissues of the upper airway vibrate as air passes over them, creating a snoring noise.
Not only is snoring loud and unpleasant, especially to the person sharing a bed with a snorer, but it can lead to interrupted sleep, headaches, a sore throat, day time sleepiness, and mental impairment. A good night's sleep is important to enjoying the day and one's quality of life.
|This shows the flow of air when someone sleeps who doesn't snore. The air flows in an orderly manner, without obstruction, through both the nose and mouth. This person isn't a snorer.|
|Here we see what occurs when a person snores while they sleep. The arrows represent the vibration of the tissues of the upper airway as you breathe in and out. It's this vibration that leads to the tell-tale snoring sound we're all familiar with.|
|Finally, this shows the Silensor-sl® anti-snoring device fitted. Note, the green lower dental splint advances the jaw slightly keeping the airways open and thus improving the flow of air and cutting down on the vibration of tissues. The degree of advancement required may vary from person to person.|
