Snoring may seem like a minor problem until you actually end up snoring or living together in the same house with a snorer. Very soon, this turns into a humongous (and loud) elephant in the room that doesn’t let anyone get a good night’s sleep. Before long, people are constantly tired and cranky and the only way to remedy the problem is by sleeping in separate rooms.
Luckily, there are some really smart people working on some truly great snoring aids. This brings us to our SnoreShield Chin Strap review, presenting one of the best and simplest anti-snoring devices.
What Is SnoreShield Chin Strap?
The SnoreShield Chin Strap is, well, a chin strap – probably the simplest kind of snoring aids but also surprisingly effective. The basic idea behind all chin straps (SnoreShield Chin Strap included) is to shut the snorer’s mouth during sleep while also pushing their jaw forward. This results in a more natural position of the soft tissues of the tongue and the back palate, thus letting the air flow freely and reducing or stopping snoring altogether.
SnoreShield Chin Strap, like most other chin straps, is a simple, soft, and sturdy strap which you sling around your chin and fix at the back of your head with Velcro strips. We should point out that this mechanism of action requires you to fit the SnoreShield Chin Strap as snugly as you can. The special material used to create SnoreShield Chin Strap makes it comfortable, but you might still need a few nights to get used to the sensation.
You may have already figured it out for yourself, but chin straps like SnoreShield Chin Strap do not really work for people whose snoring happens through the nose, i.e. the nose snorers. Moreover, if you are having problems breathing through the nose, whether because of a cold, an allergy or something else, you should not use chin straps at all.
Many people who use CPAP machines should consider using a chin strap too. People who have used SnoreShield Chin Strap with their CPAP treatment all say that it has greatly improved their nights, making sure the machine is providing all the possible relief from snoring.
How Is It Different?
For one, our experts still have to come across another chin strap whose manufacturers claim it has been clinically proven to alleviate snoring and help boost REM sleep. The manufacturers of SnoreShield Chin Strap do this with great confidence. We have not seen the clinical trials or any records of the trials, but we think this is something the manufacturer would not claim just to boost their sales.
Our experts have confirmed that the SnoreShield Chin Strap is definitely among the most comfortable straps. That being said, one of our experts whose head is larger than your average head had problems with his SnoreShield Chin Strap. Maybe this is something they will address in the future.
Using the SnoreShield Chin Strap is as easy as putting a strap around your head and all of our experts (except for the one with the big head) said that it is one of the lightest and most comfortable snoring aids on the market. One of them also tried it with her CPAP machine and after two nights, she said she noticed an improvement.
SnoreShield Chin Strap is priced similarly to other chin straps and you can get it for $13.99. The good news is that your purchase is 100 percent risk-free since you can get your money back if you are not satisfied with the product.
