Healthy sleep solutions
Mouthpieces, like mandibular advancement devices, keep the airway open by moving the jaw forward. Aside from these devices, people who snore a lot or have sleep apnea also have a few surgical options. The goal of these procedures, like uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) and laser-assisted uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP), is to get rid of extra tissue in the throat to make the airway bigger and stop snoring. Lastly, making changes to your lifestyle, like not drinking alcohol, quitting smoking, and getting less stressed, can also help you stop snoring.
