How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep When Your Partner Snores

August 8, 2018

Moving to separate bedrooms is not usually the way to a happy relationship or good health when one of you snores. Follow these tips to address the problem:

  1. Roll them over – Lying on your back makes the base of your tongue collapse to the back wall of your throat, often causing the snoring sound.
  2. Change Your Pillows– Changing your pillows to elevate the head can help to reduce snoring. Fluffing them can eliminate dust or allergens they may have collected.
  3. Avoid Alcohol Before Bed– Alcohol can relax muscles too much, causing the tongue to fall backwards into the airway, causing a snoring sound.
  4. Suggest a Visit to the Dentist – Your dentist can recommend anti-snore technology that is both comfortable and effective.

Snoring doesn’t have to be your lifelong fate, and neither does sleeping alone! Contact us today for a consultation with your dentist.
