Test Yourself - Which Type of Snorer Are You?
And Which Snoring Solution Fits Best?

Snoring is a common condition that affects 30% of all women and 50% of men. Almost 60% report having a partner who snores. It can source of various circumstances including age, diet, weight, alcohol, consumption and other factors.

Snoring can nuisance due to its negative impact on airflow. It can interrupt the sleep routines of both the snorer and those who share a bedroom with them.

There are 3 types of snoring. A first step to decreasing snoring frequency is to understand what type of snorer you may be. Nose, Mouth (also called back snorers), or Tongue-Based Snoring.

Here is how you can easily test yourself and determine which snorer you are:

The nose snoring test: 

  1. Stand in front of a mirror
  2. Pinch closed one nostril while keeping the other open and your mouth shut
  3. Breath in and out using one nostril and switch to the other

Did the open nostril collapse or even closed while inhaling? 

If the answer is yes, the root cause for your snoring may be your weakened nasal respiration

Next, hold one breathing nostril open as you inhale and exhale. If you find it helpful to breathe normally, you are likely a nose snorer.

The mouth snoring test:

  1. Open your mouth while inhaling through your nose to mimic the classic “snoring sound”. 
  2. Repeat the same process but this time keep your mouth shut

If you can’t replicate the classic snoring sound with your mouth closed, you are likely a mouth snorer, meaning your mouth remains open at night and at least a portion of the air which you are inhaling is passing through your mouth and over your tongue. This can also lead to a noticeably dry tongue each morning along with bad “morning” breath.

Tongue based snoring test:

  1. Open your mouth while inhaling through your nose to mimic the classic “snoring sound”. 
  2. Stick out your tongue while clamping gently down with your teeth while attempting to recreate the snoring sound. 

If you are unable to mimic the snoring sound in this position, it means that the snoring sound has subsequently become markedly weaker and there is a strong likelihood that you suffer from tongue-based snoring
