Designed by a dentist
The original SleepTight Mouthpiece was developed by US dentist, Dr. Mike Williams, member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and Paul Swann who was the chief designer and developer for the largest mouthguard company in the world, located in the UK.
Dr. Williams personally suffered from a snoring problem and endured multiple surgeries to improve his snoring, all to no avail. He began looking for snoring surgery alternatives over 10 years ago.
For several years the two collaborated frequently on snoring and OSA solutions. They decided to design and develop a mouthpiece which could help people around the globe with breathing at night. After evaluating thousands of customers' feedback from around the world, SleepTight Mouthpiece was born. As we continued to listen to the needs of our users, we were able to make some important changes to the original product and now we are pleased to offer the SleepTight Mouthpiece STZ.
Snoring is caused by vibration in your airway while you sleep. When you sleep, your muscles relax and your airway narrows, leading to snoring.
SleepTight Mouthpiece holds your jaw and tongue forward, opening your airway. This improves breathing and reduces snoring. By wearing SleepTight Mouthpiece while you sleep, your airway remains open.
"At first my snoring was just a nuisance to my wife, Patti. But it became more and more of an issue and I tried a lot of things like ear plugs for her, white sound, and leaving the bedroom. But, the problem was me, not her. So, I researched for other ways to get rid of the noise and I wanted a permanent fix. So, I tried both sinus and palatal surgeries. Unfortunately, after both of those surgeries, the result was still no better.
Then I began additional research and began taking courses in sleep dentistry and discovered that a simple mouthpiece, which moved the jaw forward, could solve the problem. I was also interested in the problem of altitude sickness, which is caused from a lack of oxygen while sleeping at high altitudes (typically above 8000 feet). I theorized that a mouthpiece which opened and advanced the jaw could improve that altitude sickness, which proved to be correct. Since snoring is caused by the vibration of tissues as the body attempts to get more oxygen, I now had a solution which could help both conditions.
Eureka! Now I can help myself and everyone else who snores. My goal then was to offer an easy to use and cost-effective solution that the average person could use to help their snoring. I found a manufacturer, who helped me design the SleepTight Mouthpiece and now we are offering that solution around the world.
Yes, Patti is sleeping better now!"
