Almost one person in three is a snorer. Among older people as many as 60% of men and 40% of women snore. The snoring sounds they make each night can be anything from a slight rattle to a loud sawing noise that can reach up to 90 decibels. The snorers them- selves are often completely unaware of it.
What causes snoring?
When a person sleeps on their back, relaxation of the muscles can cause the tongue to fall back into the throat and constrict the airway. This creates a stonger air current which sets the uvula at the back of the throat vibrating. And that leads to irritating snoring noises.
Snoring noises foremost affect other people. Partners, family members, other members of the household and also neighbours regularly have their sleep disturbed. The snorers themselves have to struggle with problems that are silent but more serious. In most cases these problems are not recognised as being linked to snoring.
Tongue position while awake, enough room to breathe freely.
Tongue position while asleep. Constriction of the throat makes breathing difficult and causes the familiar snoring sound.
Once inserted the DocSnoreNix® pulls the tongue and the whole lower jaw forward. Pressure is removed from the throat and breathing is no longer restricted.
Snorers often suffer from bouts of sleep apnoea - short, irregular pauses in breathing.
However other side effects may occur:
- Chronic sleep disturbance
- Daytime fatigue
- Poor concentration
- Sexual problems
- Cardiovascular disease(high blood pressure, risk of stroke)
- Shorter life expectancy
Risk factors favouring snoring and sleep apnoea are overweight, consumption of alcohol and tobacco, allergies, deviated nasal septum, hypothyroidism and increased neck circumference.
Taking certain medications and misuse of hormone preparations to increase performance can also favour snoring.
By the way: DocSnoreNix® is only worn at night. It involves no surgery or prolonged treatment.

How do I clean my anti-snoring splint?
Unfortunately all dental splints, sport mouthguards and anti-snoring splints have the problem that undesirable odors occur after a short time. This is mainly due to the composition of saliva. The influence of saliva leaves a very thin biofilm on the surface of the anti-snoring splint.
This biofilm cannot be removed with simple mechanical cleaning (eg. by a toothbrush). Also the use of tooth paste does not bring the desired effect.
Max Fresh™ makes splints hygienically clean!
Very simple and professional cleaning without brushing, with no mechanical action which reduces cloudiness and discoloration
How does that work?
