Don’t want to snore in front of my boyfriend

My boyfriend and I are going on our first over night trip.  It will also be the first time we’ve spent the night together. Here’s the thing…I am a horrible snorer.  I really like this guy and don’t want to scare him away too quickly.  Is there anything I can do about the snoring?

Sally,

It’s likely the cause of your snoring is sleep apnea.  It has to do with the muscles in the back of your throat.  You’re probably tired all the time too, even after a full night’s sleep.

A dentist with experience diagnosing and treating sleep apnea can make you a custom fitted orthotic. Don’t worry–it’s discreet. This will stop your snoring.  I don’t know how soon your trip is, but if you get in right away and tell your dentist when you’re leaving, he or she may be able to rush the process for you.

You’ll probably find you have more energy with the device too.
