Wearing Mouth Tape Significantly Reduces Snoring

Wearing Mouth Tape Significantly Reduces Snoring

Snoring is a common problem that can lead to broken sleep for both the snorer and their partner. Breathing through an open mouth worsens snoring as it dries out and narrows the airways, causing turbulence in the nose, mouth and throat. This creates an unpleasant and disruptive noise that can make bedtime a nightmare.  

In a preliminary study investigating wearing of mouth tape during sleep, snoring reduced by 47%.
