Yes! Doctors actually prescribe a professionally made device that uses exactly the same principles as Slumber Guard. However the cost of that device can be more than $1,000!
Slumber Guard is a cheaper, faster alternative.
What if the Slumber Guard doesn't stop my snoring?
Some people who show snoring symptoms may have a more serious condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). If you still show snoring symptoms whilst using the Slumber Guard, we strongly recommmend that you see your Doctor, and recommend that you see a Sleep Specialist.
There is some evidence showing Mandibular Advancement Therapy can be helpful for some OSA sufferers. However, this DOES NOT mean that this Therapy will be beneficial for ALL sufferers.
The Slumber Guard is NOT a "DIY" treatment for OSA, because of the following facts :
(1) It is very difficult for an OSA sufferer to determine the effectiveness of treatment themselves.
(2) OSA is a very serious condition which will have serious consequences for the sufferer (possibly including death) if it is not adequately treated.
If you KNOW that you suffer from OSA please DO NOT purchase a Slumber Guard without first discussing it with your doctor. Most doctors are aware of Mandibular Advancement Therapy.
IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST - SEE YOUR DOCTOR.
Snoring can be a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which is a serious condition. If Slumber Guard does not stop your snoring, then we STRONGLY recommend that you discuss this with your doctor.
Dentures certainly reduce the likelihood of success with the Slumber Guard.
There is a reasonable chance it will work if
(1) you usually sleep with your dentures in
(2) they fit very snugly (ie you could eat a fresh apple with no problems without using a knife at all)
(3) your gums are healthy and show no signs of irritation from your dentures (as this will probably get worse when you apply extra forces from the Slumber Guard).
