If your partner is prone to snoring, you will know just how disruptive it can be! It can affect the quality of your sleep and theirs, reduce effectiveness at work and cause higher stress levels.
Snoring is caused when the muscles in your neck relax while you are sleeping. The relaxed muscles cause your airway to partially close, and the soft tissue then vibrates as you breathe, causing the sound of snoring. The problem can be worse if you are overweight, if you have drunk alcohol or taken sleeping tablets.
The team at Iosis offer custom-made dental appliances which are specially designed to help you stop snoring. Worn at night-time, they work by preventing your lower jaw from dropping back while you are sleeping, which stops your airway from closing and vibrating.
