Home / The Silent Treatment - How it works



We have gone through an extensive research programme to better understand snoring and OSA and the factors that cause it. We found out that when we are still awake, our tongue is instinctively bent forward and flattened out. But once we are asleep, it relaxes and goes back to its natural humped shape, causing it to move up and back. Simply put, it blocks our airway and makes it difficult to breathe, resulting in the familiar snoring noise. In extreme cases, where the breathing stops altogether for significant periods, this is known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea which can be serious enough to be life-threatening.


This stop snoring tongue trainer device is different from the other products in the market. It is designed with hundreds of tiny spurs on the underside which are shaped, sized and spaced to precisely mesh with the hundreds of tiny rounded lumps (called papillae) that cover the upper surface of our tongue. Think of the device and your tongue as the two components of a hook and loop fabric fastener (such as "Velcro"). One hook and one loop on their own would do nothing but hundreds of them working together is remarkably effective. And your tongue actually requires very little restraint to prevent it moving back, so there is no harm or discomfort taking place.

This stop snoring mouthpiece and OSA prevention will comfortably hold the tongue in position and prevent it from drifting back and blocking the airway while sleeping. Additionally, a separate part of the device holds the lower jaw in its correct and natural position, relative to the upper jaw. Because the tongue is attached to the lower jaw, these two separate actions combine to achieve complete control over the tongue position without either action needing to be so forceful as to cause discomfort or harm.

Furthermore, after a while the phenomenon known as "Muscle Memory" will kick in, meaning that your tongue will 'remember' the forward, flattened position it has been staying in during sleep. This means that you are effectively "training" your tongue, and you will be able to go for several nights without needing to use your Silent Treatment. From there it only takes a few hours of use once a week or so to keep the memory active. For more information on muscle memory see our questions and answers page.

The device is very simple to use and we guarantee that it will not cause any harm or discomfort to anyone who wears it. It is the new effective, affordable and harm free technology, which, experts agree, looks set to become the market leader in self-fit snoring and OSA control devices.
