my partner’s snoring is so annoying!

For some people, bedtime can be a nightmare – and not because of bad dreams.

There’s nothing better than climbing into bed with our partner at night. Everyone feels that way, right? Well, not exactly.

For some people, bedtime can be a nightmare – and not because of bad dreams. When sleeping next to a serial snorer, it can be so disruptive for you. It can be tempting to laugh it off, or even to get mad, but did you know? This isn’t just annoying, it can actually be dangerous.

Snoring can indicate serious health issues, so there are a few things you can try both at home and at your dentist (such as smilogy) to change nights for the both of you.

Snoring happens when the base of the tongue and soft palate don’t have enough room between them and they vibrate, creating sound.If snoring keeps happening, it’s important to do something about it.In a lot of cases, chronic snoring is serious and happens due to sleep apnea.

With sleep apnea, breathing is interrupted during sleep, which means that organs aren’t getting the oxygen and other benefits from breathing and sleep that they need. This can mean they’re at more risk of serious issues such as heart and liver issues.

surviving the snoring at home

If your partner snores, you have a few options to try and improve things. We recommend:

  • Having a gentle conversation about it, recognising it’s not their fault.
  • Suggesting they try a different sleep position – never on their back
  • Shaking them so they roll over
  • Propping up their head with a pillow to open their airways
  • Using a full-body pillow
  • Helping them to avoid alcohol right before bed
  • Waking them up, but only as a last resort

why should my partner see a dentist?

A lot of people don’t know this, but the dentist is the best professional to speak to about snoring. We can create special mouthguards to improve night-time breathing.

Using smilogy’s 100% accurate scanners and SomnoMed science, we create mouthguards that can open your partner’s airways. They fit snugly, and stop snoring affecting their breathing by pulling the jaw forward slightly and stopping blockages.

If they’re breathing properly, they’re improving their overall health, and so are you – when you sleep better, you have better sleep hygiene!
