Living with someone who snores can be stressful; both for the snorer and the person who does not. There are a variety of lifestyle changes that can be adjusted to alleviate snoring such as changing your diet, ceasing heavy smoking or drinking for bed and managing your stress levels. Lifestyle changes can be exceptional difficult to manage and they are not done overnight. In the meantime, you may find yourself needing support. There are many options available on the market to help stop snoring and it’s important to pick the one that works best for you.
The sound of snoring is caused when the airways in our mouths and throats get blocked while we sleep. This can happen if the muscles in your throat are too relaxed and loose while you sleep or when your tongue falls to the back of your throat and block the airway. This causes that sound we all know and love.
Of the devices that are available, many people find success with mouthpieces. Mouthpieces work from inside your mouth where the issue generally lies. Some other devices such as chin straps, vibrating wrist devices and pillows try to address the problem from the outside. This is not always effective and many people find their money has been wasted on these devices.
There are two major mouthpieces that users tend to gravitate towards: The Good Morning Snoring Solution® (GMSS®) and the ZQuiet®. Both the GMSS® and the ZQuiet® have been successful on the market but the question becomes which one is better? It really depends on your personal needs. Remember, you’re unique. Check out this Good Morning Snore Solution review to get started.
Good Morning Snoring Solution®
- This device works by suctioning to your tongue and holds it straight and away from the back of your throat.
- It is latex and BPA free, so it is beneficial for those with allergies.
- Because you’re not forcing something in over your teeth it is very comfortable.
- It fits just at the front of your mouth, between your lips and your teeth
- It is one of the only mouthpieces that operate with a hinge so that you can open and close your mouth when the mouthpiece is inserted.
- Thin and lightweight makes it comfortable.
- Is available in two different sizes.
- Is ready to use immediately from the box.
Depending on your personal situation you might find that one works better than the other. The ZQuiet® may cause discomfort in your jaw as it works by pushing the lower jaw forward. The GMSS® may cause excessive drooling. If you suffer from nasal issues you may not want to consider the GMSS®. This mouthpiece forces you to breathe through your nose which could prove difficult. The ZQuiet® would be the one you turn to at that time. If you have sensitive teeth you may not want to consider the ZQuiet®. Since it is a mouthpiece that overlaps your existing teeth it can feel crowded in your mouth. Even though the ZQuiet® comes in two different sizes, these are very generic and doesn’t necessarily equate to everyone in real life. If you have a smaller or larger than average mouth you may find that the GMSS® works better for you since it doesn’t go inside your mouth the entire time.
Both pieces have their benefits and their cons. Both of them are fantastic options and have proven to have great results. It really comes down to personal preference and what you feel is the main issue with your snoring. If you are snoring due to a combination of nasal issues and your tongue falling back into your throat, the ZQuiet® would be the best for you. If you only have an issue with your tongue, the GMSS® is going to be your ticket to sweet dreams.
