Chin Strap for Snoring: Does it work
An airway that is constricted or collapsed will cause snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. The stop snoring chin strap will hold your lower jaw in place so that it does not fall backwards and down which collapses your airway.
Snoring chin straps can be an effective solution for some people even if it is not very sexy to wear. The chin strap supports your jaw so that it stays in a closed position while you sleep, but it is not effective in all patients.
The chin strap makers claim that by sleeping with your jaw in an upward and forward position, you increase the size of your airway which reduces airway velocity and soft tissue vibration. The jaw supporter works with the same principles as CPR – the airway must be open to allow air to pass through your throat.
The Chin Strap makers claim that it is better than putting a stop snoring mouth guard or other device in your mouth to prevent the snoring or using a CPAP machine.
But these things really not very attractive, looks silly to see your partner wearing this all night. It may reduce your snoring and will also improve your overall quality of sleep if you were constantly waking up before.
Many people claim that it is a winner but I am not sure…
