Choosing a Pillow for Snorers


Find Sleep Clinics & Specialists »

There are many pillows on the market to stop different kinds, and causes of snoring, each with their own benefits and specifications.

Orthopaedic Pillows

Orthopaedic pillows can be helpful for those who normally find lying on their sides at night to be uncomfortable, but need to use this technique to stop their mouths from opening during sleep. These pillows raise your head and neck during sleep to relieve aches and pains, but also help to clear your airways and reduce the chance of snoring.

Anti-Allergy Pillows

Anti-allergy pillows made from hypo-allergenic and dust resistant fibres can also reduce the congestion that often contributes to snoring during sleep. More often than not anti-snore pillows will combine both these attributes, along with using memory foam to give the sleeper complete comfort if they find it unusual sleeping on their sides. By aligning your neck and spine orthopaedic pillows keep you airways open during sleep to prevent vibration in your throat, firming up the muscles which tend to collapse during sleep.

There are a myriad of options when it comes to choosing an anti-snore pillow. Some designs help to realign your neck and spine, while others force you to sleep on your side, and some fit around your neck to raise your head and keep your airways clear.
