Snoring Aids

On this page you will find links to all types of snoring aids. The items listed on this page are included for completeness and the fact they appear here is not necessarily a recommendation. These are snoring aids that are used to help you stop your snoring. They're not a magic solution; you still have to make the changes required to stop your snoring. Long term solutions for snoring usually require lifestyle changes in the areas of diet, exercise and stress management.(not neccessarily major changes). Each device can be helpful in eliminating snoring given a particular circumstance and cause.

If you are new to this site, you may want to look at our snoring treatment guide to give you an idea of which of these snoring aids may help your particular brand of snoring.

We have split the products into different categories. To get more detail about the individual items click the links.


External Aids
  • Chin Strap / Jaw Supporter – a range of devices that keep your mouth closed and the airways of your throat open.
  • Chin Cushion – a device that sits under the chin to keep the mouth from falling open.
  • Chin Up Strip – disposable tape that fitted under the mouth encourages the wearer to keep their mouth closed at night.
  • Medical Tape – cheap but effective and not for the faint hearted. Tape your mouth shut
Nasal Breathing Aids
These snoring aids work on the principle that if your nose is clear then you are more likely to nasal breathe and less likely to snore.
  • EPAP - Expiratory positive air pressure. Based on the same idea as CPAP in that the airway is kept open using positive air pressure except while CPAP uses a machine to achieve this, EPAP uses a valve stuck over the nasal entrances to help control exhalation thereby creating the positive air pressure.
  • Nasal strips - tape with a small piece of plastic that is stuck over the nose to keep the airways open
  • Nasal Brace - inserted into the nose to keep the airways open.
  • Nasal Clips
  • Nasal Decongestants - Remedies specifically designed to clear the nose.

Oral products

  • Snoring pills – a pill or pills that you take nightly before going to bed.

  • Hypoglossal Nerve stimulation - Recent research has shown that activation of the hypoglossal nerve causes the muscles of the throat and jaw to contract thereby opening up the airway. Apnex Medical have exploited this fact to produce a pacemaker device, the Apnex HGNS that fits under the skin and activates the hypoglossal nerve in response to airway pressure in the throat while the wearer is asleep. The device can be turned on and off by remote control. The device is marketed more as a substitute for cPap in the management of OSA rather than a cure for snoring.
  • Aveo TSD – a simple but effective device that holds the tongue forward and stops the airway from becoming blocked while you sleep.
  • CPAP – a medically prescribed device to positively keep the airways from collapsing.
  • Mandibular Advancement Device – similar to a sports mouth guard this device is designed to keep the jaw in place during the night. This device has had good results for those that snore or have sleep apnea due to the tongue falling to the back of the throat and blocking the airways.
  • Snoring Spray - a range of aural sprays that lubricate and tighten the throat muscles to stop snoring.
Other worn devices
  • Ear Plugs – if you can’t stop the snoring, at least block it out.
  • Bio Feed back watch – a device worn on the wrist that delivers a small pulse when you snore making you change sleeping position.
  • Sleep posture correction devices – A range of devices to keep you off your back and on your side.

Passive Snoring Aids

  • Hypnosis – As the name suggests, cure your snoring through the subconscious mind.
  • Pillow - a good pillow is possibly the best home remedy for snoring.
  • White noise generator -
  • Olbas Oil
