Snoring is caused by the reduction of air you breathe, resulting in the obstruction of a blocked or collapsed airway. SnoreRx advances the lower jaw while also preventing the tongue from flapping back, thereby maintaining an open air passage.
The OAOSA recommendations to Medicare published on Nov. 11, 2010 stated that an oral appliance should provide the user the ability to advance the lower jaw in one millimeter increments at any time. Oral appliances that employ hardware, i.e. screws, wires, nuts, and bolts, can compromise user’s health resulting in broken or chipped teeth. Those devices that utilize rubber bands, springs, or torsion to force the lower jaw forward under constant pressure may result in pain and TMJ. SnoreRx is the only mouthguard available that offers users to adjust in one millimeter increments.
SnoreRx is a custom-fitted mandibular advancement device (MAD) which gently advances your lower jaw forward. It opens your airway at night, improves your breathing and reduces your irritating snoring-resulting in a better night’s sleep, the elimination of daytime drowsiness and restoration of energy. Unlike other oral appliances, SnoreRx is unique because it allows the user to calibrate their device to a custom setting at any time in 1 millimeter increments to achieve a more effective setting.
Yes. The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine acknowledges that oral appliances are a safe and effective way to stop snoring.
No, SnoreRx is much too large to be swallowed. The device contains no small pieces for all 4 components that make up the device are significant in size.
Yes, SnoreRx is FDA cleared for the reduction of snoring.
SnoreRx is constructed out of two medical grade plastic trays and insert pads of on the top and bottom (where you set your custom tooth impression). All components are hypoallergenic and cleared by the FDA.
All SnoreRx components are proudly made in the USA, locally in Southern California.

Step 1: Ensure SnoreRx is properly secured to the fitting tray.
Step 2: Bring a mug of water to a full boil using a microwave.
Step 3: Hold the end of the fitting handle and submerge SnoreRx into the mug of boiled water for precisely 60 seconds.
Step 4: Use the fitting handle to remove SnoreRx from the mug of boiled water. Dip SnoreRx into the bowl of tap water for 1-2 seconds to remove any hot water.
Step 5: The top of SnoreRx is indicated by the word ‘Squeeze’ on both sides. Center your teeth into both the top and bottom of SnoreRx and bite down firmly for 30 seconds to create your custom impression.
Step 6: Remove SnoreRx from your mouth and place it in the bowl of cool water for 5 minutes to set the impression.
Evaluate your impression: Do you see well-defined tooth marks on SnoreRx? If yes, proceed to step 7. If not, repeat steps 1-6. The fitting process can be done up to a maximum of two times.
Step 7: Remove SnoreRx from the bowl of cool water. Separate SnoreRx from the fitting tray by squeezing on both sides of the fitting handle and sliding the device off.
Please follow the instructions in the instruction booklet for directions on custom fitting the device. A more detailed list of instructions are available here.
Yes, if your current impression does not display clearly defined teeth marks you may re-do the impression. You can reboil and fit SnoreRx a maximum of two times to create a better impression.
Yes. SnoreRx offers patented adjustability by the user in 1 millimeter increments up to 6 millimeters. We recommend wearing SnoreRx on the setting of 1 millimeters to start. If snoring is not reduced after 3 to 5 nights the user would advance the setting to the next higher number (from 1 to 2). Each setting should be worn a minimum of 3 to 5 nights prior to adjusting. Most users find success in reducing their snoring on a setting of 3 to 5 millimeters.
Hold the device in a reverse ‘C’ position. Use both hands to hold the upper tray in place and use both thumbs to push both sides forward. The lower tray will click forward one notch at a time. Squeezing in both sides of the lower tray simultaneously will disengage the locking mechanism allowing for the upper tray to be moved.
Advancing is best done by pulling forward the lower jaw piece. It’s helpful to try to move one side at a time, one setting at a time. For example, rock the left side back one notch, then rock it back and move the right side back one notch. Make sure that both sides of the device read the same number or millimeter increment. Future adjustments may be made as needed.
Video instructions on how to adjust SnoreRx are available here.
Most users find success between the settings of three to five millimeters. We recommend that you create your impression and begin wearing the device at the one millimeter setting. If you notice the snoring is still occurring you would then advance the settings to the next higher number (ex:1 to 2). Each setting should be worn a minimum of 3 to 5 nights prior to adjusting. The idea is to gradually increase the settings until your snoring is reduced or completely eliminated. It is important that each side of the device always reflects the same setting.
Typically, the adjustment period takes about three to five nights of consistent use. It is perfectly normal for your jaw, teeth, and gums to feel moderately sore and at first. This discomfort is much like getting used to braces or a retainer for the first time. However, it is not normal to experience severe, sharp, or ongoing pain. If you experience these problems discontinue use immediately and contact your health care professional.
The easiest way to tell is if the device is working is by having someone nearby letting you know if your snoring has been reduced while using the device. Beyond that, if you are starting to get more restful sleep and waking up more revitalized, SnoreRx is doing its job. For tech savvy users, smartphone apps are available to record snoring sounds as you sleep.
SnoreRx does allow for full airflow through the V-Flow™ design. While the device allows for mouth-breathing, it is by no means required.
It is important that you brush SnoreRx daily with a tooth brush and tooth paste. If available, an ultrasonic cleaner works best. Always allow SnoreRx to air dry, as it eliminates any bacterial build up on the device. In addition to the daily cleaning it is also recommended SnoreRx is cleaned with denture solution once a week or every two weeks. Avoid use of abrasive cleaners such as mouth wash, dishwashing soap, ammonia, bleach and other household cleaning products.
SnoreRx typically lasts anywhere from 9 to 11 months. This is simply how long the product lasts on average and is not guaranteed to last this long. Those who grind their teeth and/or clench their jaw may need to replace the device sooner.
Yes, we recommend notifying your dentist during your periodic examinations that you are using SnoreRx.
In the beginning stages of use, which is referred to as the adjustment period, some users find they are unable to keep SnoreRx in their mouth. If this occurs we recommend wearing SnoreRx while awake for at least 45 minutes at a time for 3 to 5 days. This will allow your body to adjust to using SnoreRx while sleeping. The adjustment period varies for every user and could last up to 2 weeks.
Using a mouthguard at night may be a new experience for you. Some may experience discomfort, salivation and dry mouth during initial use. To minimize this effect SnoreRx should be worn for at least 45 minutes at a time for 3 to 5 days while awake. This will help your body adjust to SnoreRx.
SnoreRx is only FDA cleared for the reduction of snoring. SnoreRx is not intended for any other concern such as tooth grinding/jaw clenching. Customers who use SnoreRx and grind their teeth/clinch their jaw may notice a decrease in the life expectancy of SnoreRx.
SnoreRx should not be used by individuals who:
SnoreRx is not recommended for customers who wear dentures. If you have a bridge or a partial we would recommend that you consult with your dentist prior to purchasing and using SnoreRx. SnoreRx does require the front four teeth both top and bottom to be natural.
Those who have had implants within the last 12 months are not typically candidates for SnoreRx. SnoreRx does require the front four teeth both top and bottom to be natural. The use of SnoreRx by individuals with implants should be approved by their dentist prior to use.
SnoreRx is not recommended for patients that are currently undergoing orthodontic treatment. We would ask that you consult your orthodontist before purchasing and using our product.
Just like anything new there can be an adjustment period when you begin using SnoreRx. We strongly recommend to use the device for only a few hours during the first few nights. This typically helps you adjust to the device and minimizes any discomfort.
SnoreRx is only cleared by the FDA for the reduction of snoring.
While most users do not experience side effects the use of SnoreRx may result in:
Yes! SnoreRx is the only product that meets and exceeds the new recommended product performance standards of Medicare.
Mandibular micro adjustment in one millimeter increment
Posi-Lock™ – Locks in the preselected setting
Dual durometer design increases comfort
Most insurance companies deem snoring to be a non-medical issue, therefore Medicare and insurance does not cover SnoreRx. However, we do recommend checking with your insurance provider to understand if they offer reimbursement for the purchase of SnoreRx.
Yes, many customers successfully use SnoreRx with an overbite. However, we would recommend when you receive SnoreRx to set it on the neutral setting of 1 to take your impression and begin wearing the device. If the snoring is not reduced after 3 to 5 nights advance the setting to the next higher number (1 to 2) as needed. Each setting should be worn a minimum of 3 to 5 nights prior to adjusting.
The use of SnoreRx by individuals with crown or caps should be approved by their dentist prior to use. SnoreRx does require the front four teeth both top and bottom to be natural.
