GOOD FOR: Snoring
BAD FOR: Teeth grinding, pain and numbness in hands
WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY: Sleeping on the front will help to prevent snoring, as the muscles of the throat will not sag backwards under gravity, says Dr Shneerson.
However, if you’re a teeth grinder it can make the condition even worse. According to Dr Mani Bhardwaj, dentist at The Smile Studios in London, when people sleep on their front, their lower jaw is positioned further forward than normal. This means that if people do grind their teeth, there is extra pressure on the lower teeth, leading to significant wear.
And this position can also lead to nerve problems in the upper body.
‘When lying on the front, too many or too few pillows will affect the neck position and put it out of alignment with the spine. This will increase the likelihood of nerve compression, especially in older people,’ says Dr Eccleston.
Also, you have to rotate your neck to either the left or right, causing strain on one side.
Nerve compression occurs when the bones of the spine press on the nerves in the neck.
The risk of the condition increases as the vertebrae become arthritic with age, as this narrows the channel the nerves have to  pass through.
People suffering from this condition often complain of numbness and tingling in the fingers.
ACTION: Dr Eccleston recommends a latex foam or pocket-sprung mattress, as these will mould to the shape of your body and provide better support and protection for your spine than a normal, sprung mattress will.
Sammy Margo says: ‘You could also try sleeping on a pillow placed lengthwise under your stomach to your shoulders, as this can help to reduce the arching of the back.’
