What is Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Most people sleep with their mouths open which then allows the jaw and tongue to fall back into the back of the throat. This then causes the airway to narrow. Snoring is when air is restricted through the nose and mouth because of the narrowing of airways.

The more constricted or narrow the airway, the greater the vibration will be and the louder the snoring will be. This narrowing of the airways could be due to a partial blockage that may be located anywhere in the throat up to the nose.

If you want to learn more, please read it here: What is snoring?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is when airflow to the lungs is blocked because the tongue or soft tissues of the throat or soft palate collapse onto the back wall of the upper airway thereby creating the obstruction. This obstruction could be a partial obstruction or it can be completely blocked, which is then known as OSA. OSA is a dangerous condition, and needs to be diagnosed by a sleep doctor or specialist.

OSA episodes occur when snoring is loud and then the loud snoring is followed by episodes of silence where breathing stops or almost stops. The brain then triggers a signal to resume breathing, but the person wakes up in the process of ‘catching their breath’, creating a situation of not getting enough proper rest because of the many waking up moments.

Importance of sleep

Our bodies need proper deep sleep at night to enable it to recuperate/recharge properly. OSA causes a situation where you wake up regularly, and then more than likely don’t get enough proper sleep.

Snoring, just as OSA, can also cause you not to sleep soundly because of the many times you are woken by your partner when you disturb their sleep with your snoring, or when you are disturbed by your partner’s snoring and can’t sleep.

Sleep helps us to function physically but also emotionally in social environments, because of the rest your brain receives in the deep sleep period. Most doctors will tell you that people on average need between 7 and a half and 9 hours sleep a night.

Studies have found that sleep deprivation can affect your appetite, can affect the strength of your immune system, and can lead to weight gain, increased diabetes risk, and cardiovascular problems.

Apart from the possible risk to our heart health, without proper sleep we can also get irritable, moody, and even develop depression. Without proper sleep we cannot think clearly, react clearly and our work and private lives can suffer.

OSA and snoring should not be allowed to play havoc with our sleep lives, as it will then have a license to also play havoc with our health.

About the device and what you need to know

The STM was developed by a US dentist Dr. Mike Williams in 2014, also a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, together with a UK mouth guard researcher. The good doctor was a snoring sufferer himself, and after several treatmentsSleepTight MouthPiece did not work for him, he decided to develop something that would work for him and countless others.

I have to admit the Doctor is on to something, although relatively new on the market, the Sleep Tight Mouthpiece actually does reduce snoring tremendously.

This device can certainly ensure that you end the rumblings at night, and that you and your partner get the good night sleep you deserve.

There are mainly three types of mouthpieces available, and the Sleep Tight mouthpiece is categorized as a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD), which means the emphasis is on jaw positioning during sleep. To be more precise; the STM is an intra-oral mandibular advancement device.

Mandibular Advancement Devices are actually the most commonly made devices, while Tongue Stabilizing Devices (TSD) are the lesser known.

Many people actually prefer a TSD type mouthpiece, if you are one of them, then you should read my Good Morning Snore Solution Review to see why GMSS is so highly rated.

When your body and throat relaxes, the muscles and soft tissues in your throat also relax; gravity pulls the muscles and jaw towards the opening in your throat, causing a partial blockage or obstruction. The STM works by holding the jaw slightly forward during sleep to open the airway and thereby improving or eliminates snoring.

SleepTight MouthPiece How it works

This pulling forward of the jaw actually tightens the throat muscles and tissues which then helps to control snoring. The soft palate stretches, which then greatly reduces the chances of snoring occurring.

It is effective for snoring that starts in the back of the throat.

The mouthpiece is really very easy to fit and simple to use, and can show results from the first night. The STM also comes with full instructions of how to fit the mouthpiece properly.

In short; you boil the mouthpiece and then bite fit it, to get a proper custom fit. You can boil and refit (tweak) the STM up to five times to ensure it fits tightly and comfortably.

The STM fits very tightly and is as a result very effective. There is also much less chance for it to fall out of your mouth during sleep, because of this tight fit.

People who have full dentures can however not use this device, because the tight fit can harm the dentures.

A great feature of this mouthpiece is the wide opening in front, which allows easy breathing; most other MAD devices do not have this. This also allows the tongue to move forward in to the opening as you sleep, which also reduces the obstruction in your throat. This can actually result in the device being like a part TRD device as well, as it does actually naturally pull your tongue forward during sleep.

The Sleep Tight Mouthpiece is a one piece mouthpiece and therefore has no moving parts or hinges which can break, this make the STM also much more reliable and not prone to easily give in.

The mouthpiece is made from thermoflexible material, ethylene vinyl acetate.

It is clinically tested and FDA cleared for effectiveness and safety, for the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

The STM can help to treat snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea; of course with OSA you should also let a sleep physician monitor your situation, as OSA is a serious condition. Do not use the device if you have central sleep apnea.

The device is very easy to clean and full instructions are provided upon purchase. Interesting however; they warn you not to use toothpaste on the mouthpiece as it can damage it, so don’t brush your mouthpiece and your teeth at the same time.

As with all anti snoring mouthpieces, it will take you a little while to get use to the feel of this device, you might also experience some excess saliva; but it will improve over time. Other side effects to this device could be painful jaw, gum irritation, and dental problems. This is common and should improve over continued use, but if it does not, you should stop using the product and seek medical advice.

Remember, some devices are better suited to you than others may be.

The Sleep Tight Mouthpiece comes with a 30 day return policy, which is explained below, but a negative aspect of this is however; the trial period begins when you place your order, so the longer it takes for the product to be delivered to you the less time you have to evaluate it.

Conclusion

I know it can be hard to find the right anti snoring device, but the Sleep Tight Mouthpiece could be just what you were looking for. Like with every device it has its pros and cons, and you just have to figure out what aspects and functions of a device are most important to you.

The Sleep Tight Mouthpiece is definitely a device that can help you with your snoring as it has with many other people. The STM has many benefits and positive attributes, which are highlighted below, and can definitely be recommended for anybody who is fed up with snoring.

I found the Sleep Tight Mouthpiece to be well built, and a well thought out anti snoring device, and one which is of a very high standard.

The STM is very well priced and provides a big incentive for anyone looking for an excellent device, but don’t want to feel like they are buying shares in the company.

The device is easy to fit and after fitting is like plug-and-play for a computer, or in this case plug-and-sleep. The amount of jaw SleepTight MouthPiece Packadvancement (how far the mouthpiece pushes the jaw forward) can be different in each individual case, so you need to find the degree that is comfortable and still works.

The simple design makes it easy to use, because there is no moving parts or hinges to deal with.

The STM can feel a bit intrusive, or in the way, for some people, because you are definitely aware of it while you wear it, which is a bit of a negative for me.

I personally still prefer a TRD type device like the GMSS, but it is not to say that this is not a good mouthpiece, on the contrary, it is excellent.

Give the Sleep Tight mouthpiece a try. You have a 30 day return policy in play and it will cost you nothing more than the original $9.95 if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase.

Your situation and dynamics are different. A device that I love or that your best friend love, might not always be right for you, but I am sure you will love this one.

Look at your situation, the type of snorer you are, and the type of devices available for your needs. Read this review and decide if this will be a true fit for you, just as it has been for a multitude of other people. I really hope you will find the solution that is perfect for you.

If you suffer from OSA, you should consult your doctor before using any anti-snoring mouthpiece.
