What is the SnoreRX Mouthpiece?

The SnoreRX mouthpiece is a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD), holding your lower jaw in a slightly forward position in order to keep the airway in the back of your throat cleared, thereby eliminating or significantly reducing snoring. Otherwise, without it, when your jaw falls to the back of your throat, allowing your tongue to also fall to the back of your throat, the airway may become partially blocked. When the airway in the back of your throat is clogged, breathing is more likely to make the tissues in that area vibrate, making you snore.

The SnoreRX is an Adjustable MAD made of a BPA and latex free copolymer. The material allows for a boil-and-bite fitting process so the mouthpiece can take the shape of your jaw, while giving you an extra degree of comfort because of the softer-than-usual plastic that comes into contact with your teeth and gums. It is also adjustable, meaning that after having done the boil-and-bite process, the lower tray can be shifted forward by small 1 mm increments to give you the most comfortable fit possible (up to 10 mm forward).

The device has a hole at the front, allowing you to breathe through your mouth, which will be useful when you can’t breathe through your nose during flu or allergy season for instance.

The mouthpiece reduces teeth grinding since it holds your jaw in place.

The SnoreRX is FDA cleared, meaning it was deemed similar enough to a product fully approved (completely analyzed) by the FDA, and the company behind the product has been selling this product since 2009.

The entire product is manufactured in the USA.

The Design and the Material Used

The SnoreRX is made of a BPA and latex free copolymer. It is preferred for products that come into contact with food or that you put in your mouth to be BPA free. This is because BPA is a chemical that has been related to a number of side effects including: negative effects on the brain and heart, and certain cancers. Many people are allergic to latex or sensitive to it in some way, which means it is also advised to favor latex free products in the case of a mouthpiece.

Snore RX Mouthpiece Design

The SnoreRX is an Adjustable Mandibular Advancement Device. It is molded through a boil-and-bite process to take the shape of your jaw, and in order to push the jaw forward the lower tray can be moved forward 1mm at a time, up to a total of 10mm. That way you will have more control over how far out you want your lower jaw to be, which should give you a better overall fit.

The device has a hole at the front to allow the user to breathe through their mouth. This will be useful whenever you have a stuffy nose. While you would not be able to wear a MAD that doesn’t have a hole in it, making snoring inevitable whenever you have a stuffy nose, the SnoreRX can be worn in these circumstances also.

How To Use The SnoreRX And How It Works

The SnoreRX is an Adjustable MAD that stops you from snoring by keeping your lower jaw in a forward position. The reason this works is because of the main cause of snoring: the vibration of tissues in the back of your throat due to the relaxation of your muscles while asleep, and a partial blockage of the airway in the throat.

While asleep, your muscles relax, making the tissues in your throat more likely to vibrate, and when you lower jaw falls to the back of your throat, like when you are sleeping on your back, it allows the tongue to also fall to the back of your throat, partially blocking the airway. So then when you breathe air has a harder time passing through that narrowed region, making the tissues there vibrate.

This means that holding your lower jaw pushed forward stops the tongue from falling to the back of the throat, which keeps the throat cleared of any obstacle.

Before using the SnoreRX, just like with any other mouthpiece, you brush your teeth and make sure your mouth is clean.

You will need to mold the device yourself at home through a simple boil-and-bite process, and then adjust it forward a millimeter at a time to hold your lower jaw in a forward position, like explained in the video below.

To start, the boil-and-bite process will go as follows (though make sure to read the detailed instructions):

  • Have a pot of cold water, and one with boiling water
  • Stop boiling the water
  • Using a spoon gently submerge the SnoreRX in the bowl of hot water for one minute
  • Take the mouthpiece out and bite down on it for 30 seconds (making sure it is cool enough, though it should be)
  • Place the mouthpiece in the bowl of cold water for 1 minute
  • Adjust the lower tray forward a millimeter at a time for a custom, comfortable fit

The manufacturer says you can remold the device three times before it starts loosing its shape and becoming unusable.

Cleaning And Longevity Of The SnoreRx Mouthpiece

The SnoreRX is supposed to last between 12 and 15 months depending on the user and on whether it is properly cared for. For instance, if you usually grind your teeth while asleep, the device may closer to the 12 months since it will constantly be fighting your teeth grinding.

As for cleaning, the manufacturers say you can clean it with warm water after each use, though all other mouthpieces on the market are recommended to be cleaned more thoroughly using a toothbrush, toothpaste and cool water after each use, and to also use a denture cleaner about once a week. The reason for this is the device will likely accumulate a certain amount of bacteria if you only rinse it in warm water, especially because of the adjustability feature, which uses 10 small crevices to allow you to slowly push the lower jaw forward.

To clean it thoroughly, you can separate the two trays by pushing the lower tray forward beyond the 10 mm it allows for, in order to unlock the two pieces.

An important point about cleaning: you must let it air dry.

After having let it air dry, store it in a dry place, away from the reach of your dog..

Potential Side Effects

There are a few side effects that you will experience the first few days, but all of them should be significantly reduced by the end of the first week. And although all these side effects are not specific to the SnoreRX, but come with all MADs, the SnoreRX seems to be a bit less comfortable than the top MADs.

The side effects include

  • Excessive drooling, especially the first few nights
  • Soreness of the jaw
  • And can also include: dry mouth, tender teeth, irritation of the gums, and minor changes to the way your jaw closes

If you find your jaw to be excessively sore when you wake up, you may want to re-adjust the lower tray of your mouthpiece backwards by a few millimeters.

You should never feel an intense, acute pain in your jaw. Only soreness.

Clinical Trials

There have not been any clinical trials run on the SnoreRX specifically, though Mandibular Advancement Devices, in general, are a proven solution to snoring, and many MADs have gone through clinical trials. Also, the Food and Drug Administration has cleared the SnoreRX, meaning they consider it similar enough to other products on the market that the FDA has fully analyzed and approved.

Will The SnoreRX Mouthpiece Work For You?

The SnoreRX has moderately good reviews online, the main reason for this seems to be because many users have found it effective, but somewhat uncomfortable. This means the device may be hit-or-miss. But the big majority of users agree that the device does significantly reduce, or eliminate snoring.

The side effects will usually fade away after a few days, though, as previously mentioned, it may not be the case for everyone.

The hole at the front of the mouthpiece will allow the user to wear the device even when he/she has a stuffy nose, which is a convenient feature for a MAD.

The appliance will only stop you from snoring if you snore because of vibrating tissues in the back of your throat, which is the most common cause of snoring. This will often be the case in overweight, or slightly overweight individuals because of the fat around the throat narrowing the airway. Though it can obviously happen to anyone.

The SnoreRX cannot be worn by people with dentures or loose teeth.

The 30-day money back guarantee will make trying this device relatively cheap, though the company will not reimburse you for shipping costs.

How Much Does It Cost And Where To Buy It

Company Behind The Product

The company that manufactures the SnoreRX also manufactures a similar device made exclusively for treating sleep apnea. The company is called Apnea Sciences Corporation, was founded in 2009 and is based in Laguna Niguel, California.

The SnoreRX has been cleared by the FDA, and has had moderately good reviews and customer feedback.

The company is not BBB Accredited and has received a “Warning Letter” from the FDA after an inspection conducted by the FDA. The letter speaks of a lack of commitment to reviewing complaints by customers, and there seems to be a lack of commitment to documenting and following up on the SnoreRX.

Summary Of The SnoreRX Mmouthpiece

The SnoreRX mouthpiece is an Adjustable MAD. It keeps your lower jaw pushed forward in order to clear the back of your throat, allowing air to feely pass through. It is both BPA and latex free, and is made of copolymer, making the plastic around your teeth softer. Because it is adjustable, not only will it take the shape of your jaw through a boil-and-bite process, but you will also be able to push the lower tray, the one holding your lower jaw, forward by 1 mm increments, allowing for a very precise fit.

Airholes at the front of the device allow the user to breathe through their mouth.

The most common side effects are : excessive drooling and sore jaw.

The Device will last between 12 and 15 months, depending on the user. It should probably be cleaned after each use using a toothbrush, toothpaste, and cool water, even if the manufacturer only says you need to rinse it in warm water.

There is a 30-day guarantee, though you will not be paid back the shipping fees. It costs 99 USD for one device, or 154$ for two.

Finally, the product has received decent reviews, and it has been cleared by the FDA, though the company manufacturing it has received a warning letter from the FDA after they conducted an inspection, saying that there was not enough commitment to responding to customers’ comments and complaints, and that there was little effot towards following up on the SnoreRX after it had been sold.
