A stop snoring chin strap wraps around the head, holding the chin in place. It is designed to be worn at night to prevent snoring by keeping one’s chin closed as they sleep. By keeping the mouth shut, this hopes to prevents air from travelling in and out of the mouth. This may be ideal for those who snore through their mouth, but would not prevent snoring for individuals who breathe through their nose [1].

Studies

Although there are a limited amount of studies that have been released on the effectiveness of chin straps specifically, they can still bring insight to the successfulness of these anti-snore devices.

In astudy analyzing the sleep patterns of 26 patients from the NJ Neuroscience Institute at JFK Medical Center, the efficacy of stop snoring chin straps were studied. The study concluded that the chinstrap alone did not improve sleep disordered breathing or snoring [2].

Pros & Cons

Advantages:

  • Non-invasive
  • Can be worn with dentures
  • Long lasting

Disadvantages:

  • Not the best long term solution
  • Obstructs mouth breathing
  • Not ideal for those with colds
  • Not ideal for individuals with nose injuries
  • Will not reduce snoring if it is in result of another health issue

Is a stop-snoring strap for you? 

If you naturally breathe through your mouth or have a nose injury, this may not be the best snoring solution. With proper guidance from a health care professional, it is achievable to find the best snore solution for your specific source of snoring.
