How Do I Stop Snoring?
Why do we snore?
When the soft palate and tongue are relaxed during sleep, the natural airway narrows. This may create vibrations of the soft tissue in the throat, this is known as snoring. Read More about Snoring » or Jump straight to the Solution »
The relaxed jaw position causes the tongue (red) to fall back into the throat and narrow and could possibly close the airway.
The appliance keeps the lower jaw forward (normal jaw position) and the airway open.

Time to Wake Up
Snoring may be a sign of sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea occurs when the airway completely collapses. The airway becomes blocked and the air supply is temporarily interrupted. You have stopped breathing.
If the airway obstruction persists, the brain partially wakes the person enabling them to clear their throat and breathe, you than fall back to sleep. The cycle repeats throughout the night.
Introducing the orthoApnea, a mandibular (jaw) advancement appliance (Read more about the OrthoApnea »).
This device, which you install just before bed and sits snuggly around the upper and lower teeth, has been proven to prevent snoring by keeping the lower jaw forward (its normal position), and the airway open.
As the airway is now more open to allow the air to flow freely, there is no noise, NO SNORING.
This also means you are now getting all the fresh air into your lungs that you need, giving you and your sleep partner both a better night’s sleep.
