Anti Snoring Pillows
They are generically known as anti snoring pillows. They are designed to give to comfort to those that sleep either on their stomach or side.
These pillows offer comfort to the the chin, neck and throat area. They help retain the sleeping posture and help a free airflow through the nose, mouth and the throat area. These are ergonamically designed and are user-friendly.
Another kind of anti snoring device is the side sleep pillows. They are designed to be positioned between the thighs. They claim to restrain you from rolling onto your back during sleep.
Sprays and Gels
Spray and gels are also used as anti snoring devices. The sprays decongest the nose. They lubricate the nose and the nostrils thus help you breathe easy and avoid snoring.
There are also gels that when applied on the nose, back of one's throat, the neck and the chest area emit certain vapors that ease the breathing process and aid in smooth air flow through the air passages.
Both the sprays and gels are most often made with natural herbs and or mixtures of aromatic oils drawn from them. You are supposed to apply them just before retiring to the bed.
Nasal strips are two types. A type of these anti snoring devices are applied on the nose and others are placed within the nostrils. The good quality nasal strips are made out of superior quality of plastic. They are soft and elastic. When placed over the nostrils they hold them in position and stop them from collapsing thus reducing the dependence of breathing through the mouth.
Nasal Cones are also anti snoring devices and work similar in nature but they need to be placed within the nostrils. They support the soft tissue of the nostrils and help in the easy flow of air into the mouth and the throat.
CPAP pronounced as see pap, is a sophisticated anti snoring device. CPAP is an acronym for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. A CPAP machine is a face mask. The face mask is fitted with a flexible hose. The other end of the hose is connected to a source of pressurized air. The face mask seals the surroundings of the nose and the mouth area with a certain positive air pressure. This constant positive pressure keeps the air passage open and eliminates snoring. This snoring device is designed to help the sleep apnea patients.
This is an other anti snoring device. This device holds the lower jaw in position and stops it from opening while you are sleeping. Thus it stops breathing through the mouth and the resultant snoring condition.
Sleep Positioning Devices

These are essentially devices that are designed on based on some occidental and oriental alternative medicine therapies like Acupressure and Reflexive Therapy. There are also other anti snoring devices that claim to operate on Magnetic Therapy too.
Biofeedback devices are worn on the body and are actively in touch with it. These anti snoring devices are claimed to sense the body conditions like temperature, heart beat and 'alert' the user to his/her sleep conditions so that a remedial actions may be taken.
