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 treatment of snoring.
SnoreRx is constructed out of two medical grade plastic trays and insert pads of medical grade copolymers on the top and bottom (where you set your custom tooth impression). All components are hypoallergenic, BPA free, and cleared by the FDA.
All SnoreRx components are proudly made in the USA, locally in Southern California.
We are committed to your full satisfaction. While we reach for 100% satisfaction, we understand SnoreRx may not be for everyone. If you are not satisfied you may take advantage of the guarantee.
Simply return SnoreRx within 30 calendar days of receiving your device for a refund of the product price. We do not refund any shipping costs. The package must be postmarked on or before the 30 days from date of delivery. We apologize that we cannot accommodate returns postmarked after the 30 day return window.
Step 1: Bring the water in the cup to full boil using a microwave
Step 2: Drop SnoreRx in the boiled water for precisely 90 seconds, then remove using a spatula or tongs.
Step 3: Quickly dip SnoreRx into a bowl of tap water for two to three seconds to remove any hot water. Patients should then bite down firmly into the device for 30 seconds. Please note that SnoreRx does not retain heat and will not burn your mouth.
Step 4: Remove SnoreRx from the mouth and place it in a bowl
of tap water for 60 seconds to set the impression.
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 up to three times to create a better impression.
Yes. Unlike any other products, SnoreRx offers patented micro adjustability by the user in 1 millimeter increments up to 6 millimeters. This is critical to achieving optimal clinical effectiveness. Additionally, if future changes are needed, they can be easily made.
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 on the factory setting of three millimeters, which is why we recommend customizing the device on that setting. If you notice the snoring is still occurring you would then advance the settings to four millimeters. 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.
SnoreRx is designed to remain as one solid unit at all times, during the custom impression process and usage. Do not attempt to remove the soft material on the top and bottom from the hard plastic – they are not designed to be removed and will not go back into place.
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 fatigued 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 or believe you have TMD, 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 allow SnoreRx to dry every day after usage, as it eliminates bacterial buildup on the device. Wash the device off with water and allow it to sit and dry after each use. We recommend users to clean SnoreRx with an ultrasonic cleaner and/or a dentures cleaning solution. Brushing the device with a toothbrush, toothpaste and warm water is also effective. Avoid use of abrasive cleansers such as ammonia, bleach and other household cleaning solutions.
We recommend that you clean SnoreRx one or two times per week. Consider cleaning the device more often if the device develops any odors, tastes, or stains.
SnoreRx typically lasts anywhere from 11 to 15 months. This is simply how long the product lasts on average and is not guaranteed to last this long. Those with teeth grinding issues (bruxism) may need to replace the device sooner.
We do not recommend SnoreRx based on this pathology and advise users to consult their dentist.
Those who have had implants within the last 12 months are not typically candidates for SnoreRx. Implants that have had 12 months or longer to ossify are not an issue.
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.
No. SnoreRx is only intended for the treatment of snoring. It is not intended to treat sleep apnea or any other medical conditions.
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.
