For those of you whose significant others are kicking you out of the bed due to snoring, there's hope. More than 300 devices are registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as cures for snoring.
Some of these devices reposition the lower jaw forward; some open nasal air passages; a few others have been designed to condition a person not to snore by producing unpleasant stimuli when snoring occurs.
But, if you snore, whether it's because you have a cold or sleep apnea, the truth is that it is not under your control. If anti-snoring devices work, it is probably because they keep you awake.
