What is the SnoreMeds Mouthpiece?

SnoreMeds Anti-Snoring Mouthpiece ReviewThe SnoreMeds anti-snoring mouthpiece is a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD), adjustable through a boil-and-bite process. Snoring is usually caused by the vibration of the tissues at the back of your throat. This happens when your lower jaw and/or your tongue fall to the back of your throat, making it harder for you to breathe. The SnoreMeds mouthpiece holds your lower jaw in a forward position, thereby clearing the airway at the back of your throat, which significantly reduces or completely eliminates snoring.

The SnoreMeds is a relatively popular choice of mouthpiece because it has a decent reputation, and is cheap compared to other mouthpieces. Even though it has a shorter lifespan, meaning that in the long term its price advantage may disappear, its smaller initial investment makes it more appealing for users who want to try out MADs for the first time.

Like many MADs, it will take the shape of your jaw through a boil-and-bite process. Holes at the front allow breathing through the mouth while sleeping, which is not always the case for MADs. And like most MADs, the SnoreMeds mouthpiece will help you stop grinding your teeth since it effectively keeps your jaw in place.

There have been no clinical trials run on this specific product, but MADs in general are a proven remedy to snoring. The SnoreMeds has also been made from material cleared by the FDA, which means the materials used to make the SnoreMeds are really similar to material that has been fully approved by the FDA. This is not to be confused with an FDA cleared product: it is not the product as a whole that has been cleared by the FDA, only its components have been.

The Design and Material Used

The SnoreMeds is made of thermoplastic so it can be adjusted through a boil-and-bite process, and is BPA and latex free.

It is important for products that go in your mouth to be both latex and BPA free for a few reasons. BPA is a material that contains potentially harmful chemicals. If kept in your mouth for long amounts of time, negative effects may come to the brain, it may cause heart problems, and some studies even say that BPA can affect hormone levels that lead to certain cancers. It is recommended by many health agencies like the FDA not to put BPA in mouthpieces. Latex is a plastic that many people are either allergic, or sensitive to.

The SnoreMeds also comes in two different sizes: one for men (regular) and one for woman (small), which should make the mouthpiece more comfortable for the user.

How to use the SnoreMeds and how it works

The SnoreMeds is a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD). It is meant to hold your jaw in a slightly forward position while you are asleep so your jaw does not fall back and partially obstruct the back of your throat. When your throat is not cleared the increased pressure around the obstructed area when you breath will make your tissues there vibrate, making you snore. There are two breathing holes at the front of the device, allowing you to breathe through your mouth while asleep, instead of having to get used to only breathing through your nose.

Before putting the SnoreMeds on or shaping it through the boil-and-bite process, remember to brush your teeth. The SnoreMeds should also be washed before it is used.

To shape the SnoreMeds to your mouth carefully follow the instructions that come with the product. Here is what the idea is:

  • Place the blue handle in the airholes at the front of the device
  • Place the device in near-boiling water
  • After a short amount of time, as per the instructions, remove the device from the water by grabbing onto the handle and let it cool
  • Once it has cooled to a reasonable temperature, place the device in your mouth with the appropriate side facing up
  • Make sure it is positioned correctly using a mirror and bite down on it, slightly pushing your lower jaw forward
  • You can make sure it is well positioned by pushing the device against your teeth with your fingers
  • After about a minute remove the device from your mouth and cool it in a bowl of cold water.

The company says you can remold it once if you do not find it to be a good fit the first time around, but be careful because remolding it more than once will lower the quality of the mouthpiece.

Cleaning and Longevity of the SnoreMeds Mouthpiece

You should clean your SnoreMeds after each use with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and cold water. The appliance has a simple design without many little crevices, making it easy to clean. After having brushed it thoroughly, rinse in cold water (hot water may change the shape of the device), and let it air dry. Once dry, store in a dry place, out of reach from your dog…

You should also clean your device once a week using a denture cleaner, in order to kill any bacteria and fungi that may have resisted to your brushing. Let your SnoreMeds soak in a denture cleaner for about 10 minutes, as per the instructions, then rinse it using cold water, and let it air dry.

The lifespan of this appliance is relatively short when compared to most quality MADs or TSDs (tongue retaining devices) on the market, though it is also a bit cheaper than average. The SnoreMeds was reported to last between 3-4 months when cared for properly, though this will depend on the user. It seems it was “designed” to last 12 months, which would make this product even more worthwhile, but according to most reviews and my experience, you should expect it to last 3-4 months.

Potential Side Effects

The most common side effects of SnoreMeds, which are the same for MADs in general, are

  • Jaw soreness and
  • Excessive drooling

There are other side effects users may experience such as

  • A dry mouth
  • Irritation of the gums
  • Tenderness of teeth
  • And small changes to how you close your jaw

But all of these side effects usually disappear or become barely detectable within the first week.

Will the SnoreMeds mouthpiece work for you?

The SnoreMeds is a decent product, as evidenced by customer feedback and its reviews online, and Mandibular Advancement Devices in general have been proven to work well in stoping snoring.

The two ariholes at the front make it so you won’t have to become used to breathing through your nose, which also makes it possible to use when you have the flu or a stuffy nose from allergies.

The device is boil-and-bite which will make it mold to your shape of your jaw very well, and the boil-and-bite process is also really straight forward, unlike with some other products that are a bit trickier to adjust. The process can also be repeater twice if the first mold was not made perfectly. Though since it only allows for two tries, you should be as meticulous as possible when molding it the first time (and even more the second time).

One interesting detail of the SnoreMeds is that it is cheaper than the average mouthpiece, but this only shortens its lifespan. This way the quality of the product remains relatively high, but because of its lower price it becomes easier for the skeptical users interested in trying out MADs for the first time (to see whether those devices can work for them) to make the purchase since it is less of an investment.

The SnoreMeds cannot be worn by people with dentures, loose teeth, or other teeth condition.

Company Behind the SnoreMeds

The Company was founded in 2006 and started selling its products the same year. It was founded by two people in South Africa who own a web development company called Trio Interactive, and who consulted experts on anti-snoring devices to find and market a MAD. The SnoreMeds company is a subsidiary of this web development firm, Trio Interactive.

The company is not BBB accredited but seems to be responsive to its customers according to reviews online. The firm has a relatively good reputation, though its product has been given mixed reviews : from about 2.5 to 3.5 out of 5 stars depending on the website.

Summary of the Product

The SnoreMeds mouthpiece is a MAD with a boil-and-bite design made to make the product take the shape of your jaw, but in order for it to tightly fit in your mouth, it cannot be worn by people with dentures or loose teeth. It has two holes at the front to allow the user to breathe through the mouth while sleeping. The mouthpiece uses a latex and bpa free thermoplastic, and all of the materials used to make the product have been approved by the FDA.

The device should be cleaned after each use using a toothbrush, toothpaste, and cold water. And it should be cleaned once a week in a denture cleaner : let it soak in the denture cleaner about 10 minutes, then rinse the device in cold water and let it air dry. Store the device in a dry place. If the SnoreMeds is properly cared for it should last between 3 and 4 months (for a few users it lasted up to a year). Even though this is a relatively shorter lifespan than most MADs, the SnoreMeds is also somewhat cheaper.

The most common side effects include jaw soreness and excessive drooling, but these should quickly go away as you become used to your mouthpiece. Within the first week the side-effects should have nearly or completely vanished.

The SnoreMeds can be bought directly from the official website, and is cheaper than the average MAD, making it less of an investment for those who would like to try MADs but are uneasy about spending around 100 USD.

There hasn’t been any clinical trials done on this product, but MADs in general have been proven to be a good remedy to snoring, and given the reviews online, this mouthpiece should treat snoring.
