How to use SnoreMeds Anti-Snoring Mouthpiece in 3 easy steps
The SnoreMeds™ pack includes molding instructions which are quick and easy-to-follow. The SnoreMeds™ mouthpiece is an oral appliance generally worn at night. The mouthpiece works as a splint by positioning and holding the lower jaw slightly forward during sleep. By doing this, the respiratory tract is widened, which enables air to flow unobstructed through the breathing passage enabling the patient to breathe more freely and prevent snoring.

Step 1 | Preparation
A surface near to where the water will be boiled.
A kettle or a pot to boil water.
A container or mug deep enough to submerge the mouthpiece.
A watch, clock or timing device which can measure in seconds.
Take the contents out of the box.
Place the mouthpiece in the upright position as in diagram (Fig 1)
Insert the spatula into the holes in the front of the mouthpiece (Fig 2)
Practice moving your bottom jaw forward and find a comfortable forward position. Remember that you only need to move your lower jaw forward by a few millimeters for the mouthpiece to be effective.
Step 2 | Molding Process
Boil the water.
Pour the water into the container or remove the pot from the heat source.
Hold the mouthpiece using the spatula (be aware of the mouthpiece upright position)
Place the mouthpiece in the boiled water for 15-18 seconds.
The mouthpiece will appear clear and the plastic will be soft.
Place the mouthpiece into your mouth (the right way up) still holding the mouthpiece by the spatula.
Push your lower jaw forward by a few millimeters and bite down hard.
Suck the air out and use your fingers to push the plastic against your teeth to produce a firm custom fit.
Use your tongue to push from the other side. Remove the mouthpiece and hold it in cold water to set the shape.
Step 3 | Cleaning and Storage
Keep the spatula, this will aid in future molding and cleaning of the mouthpiece.
Clean the mouthpiece by holding the mouthpiece with spatula.
Use toothpaste, mouthwash or Polident® 3-Minute Anti-Bacterial Denture Cleanser Rinse mouthpiece.
