IS your snor­ing keep­ing your part­ner — or even the rest of the house­hold — awake dur­ing the night?

Or worse, is it so bad that you’ve been rel­e­gated to an­other bed­room?

Snor­ing af­fects many Aus­tralians, with the Sleep Health Foun­da­tion re­port­ing fre­quent, loud snor­ing is ex­pe­ri­enced by 24 per cent of men and 17 per cent of women.

Some­times snor­ing can be a symp­tom of a big­ger is­sue, such as ob­struc­tive sleep ap­noea, but it is just as of­ten due to or­di­nary fac­tors that make the tongue relax and fall back into the air­way dur­ing sleep.

When the tongue is in the way of nor­mal breath­ing, the body tries to main­tain nor­mal air vol­ume — which makes the throat vi­brate and cause the snor­ing sound. How­ever, there is a so­lu­tion. Lo­cal busi­ness Snorex spe­cialises in cus­tomis­ing Mandibu­lar Ad­vance­ment Splints (MAS) — a mouth­guard of sorts — that have proven over 80 per cent ef­fec­tive in elim­i­nat­ing snor­ing.
