My Mum used to grind her jaw when asleep. She used to do that and old Dad used to snore - it was like an orchestra playing !! I think dentist have jell guards now that you can use - similar to what rugby players use.

Hi Jill I'm a 55 yr old gal. And have been through the usual spouse snore bore. Now sleep by meself on the ground floor so no stairs to the loo !!

A friends husband had the op for snoring and I'm afraid to report that he went through a very bad time after the op due to infection. Also he still snores so I don't think it's always the magic cure it's made out to be.
