What in the world is a tongue stabilizing device, you ask? Well, it’s something that can make or break you, depending on why you need one. The need for such a device ranges from preventing an incessant talker from dominating your time at a party to ending an annoying filibuster to avoiding snarky comments between love partners to stopping snoring that is affecting your health and possibly relationships. This article presents the top 4 uses for a tongue stabilizing device and recommends the best ones for the job.
One of the common causes of snoring while asleep is the position of a rebellious tongue. In many people, the tongue will lazily rest backward toward the throat during sleep, narrowing the space for passage of air. When air cannot freely pass through the throat to the larynx and then to trachea, bronchi and lungs, the tissues of the throat can vibrate, make noise, and get irritated. I don’t have to tell you that this could cause a problem with a bedroom partner’s ability to get a good night’s rest. It also can leave the snorer’s throat inflamed and sore, called “snore throat.” A good anti-snoring mouthpiece can be comfortable and encourage the tongue forward, and this widens the airway, thus eliminating the snore. Look for a snoring mouth guard that has good reviews and comes from a reputable company, such as SmartGuard.
Many of you can probably think of a person who has the talent for backing you against a wall in conversation. They drone on and on, like on a soapbox, hardly giving you a chance to say, “Interesting, I need to go now.” Though you’re not likely to convince the incessant locutor to wear a clothespin on their tongue while visiting your house, you can only hope that the next time they are bending your ear, it is by telephone. The telephone is a handy handler for the soapbox preacher because you can finish the dishes, brush your teeth, even use the bathroom with the phone lying on a table. When you return to pick up the phone, you may find the talker is completely unaware that you were gone. But if they discover your absence, it may be just enough of an insult that they will mend their ways and be less annoying next time. Or, you could convince the talker to wear a snore guard device, explaining that it might help straighten their pearly whites. The mouthpiece, though comfortable, makes it difficult to articulate a vigorous conversation.
Well, some Congressmen have surely begged permission to bridle the tongue of the person who is ranting on and on about a political issue. After all, if the microcosmic “checks and balances” allow for ear plugs, they must allow somebody to tongue-tie the incessant locutor so everyone can go home to dinner with their family and relish the peace and quiet.
“Happy wife, happy life” is often offered as wisdom in relationships, but it’s hard to maintain, especially when both spouses have strong opinions, and neither party is inclined to relent; however, if one or the other is willing to wear a mouthguard during the debate, it makes the argument very one-sided. He or she could make a concession, “Ok, I promised to wear the anti-snore device, so what can you promise me?” This give and take negotiating may be just what the marriage counselor ordered for appeasement, and the obvious benefit is the inability to carry on an articulate argument while wearing the snore guard.
