A recent study in Switzerland found oral appliances effective in treating snoring. Side effects were only "mildly disturbing": mucosal dryness (86% of patients), tooth discomfort (59%), and excessive salivation (55%). A similar study in the UK of 25 heavy snorers found that the use of "mandibular advancement appliances," i.e., mouthpieces, was effective in reducing snoring loudness for 84 per cent of the subjects, while 76 per cent said they were snoring on fewer nights per week.How comfortable is it to wear?
It takes about 10 days to feel comfortable wearing the anti-snoring mouthpiece. For the first few days, it is likely that you will feel discomfort in your jaw alignment and teeth. We call this 'gym fit' - the discomfort does go away with regular use. If not, we recommend you stop using it.How do I clean the mouthpiece?
The SnoreMeds™ anti-snoring mouthpiece can be cleaned each morning and evening by simply inserting the spatula into the front of the mouthpiece, then using a toothbrush and paste, brush the mouthpiece like you would brush your teeth.How long does SnoreMeds last?

The anti-snoring mouthpiece is made from non-latex, BPA-free, hypo-allergenic thermoplastic that is easily molded to the shape of the snorer’s mouth.Why do I snore?
Snoring is usually caused by a partial obstruction of the upper airway behind the tongue. When we’re awake, our breathing is unobstructed, as our body consciously keeps our upper airway open. But when we are asleep, the muscles around our airway relaxes and the airway often becomes narrower. For most people who snore, air rushing through the narrowed opening causes the soft tissue in this part of the upper airway to vibrate, making the sound we call snoring.Why does the anti-snoring mouthguard have holes?
The SnoreMeds mouthpiece has twin holes in the front that allow for easier swallowing and emergency breathing for night time nasal blockages. The mouthpiece comes with a spatula for ease of molding, re-molding if necessary and to hold the mouthpiece while cleaning.Will I stop snoring immediately?
You should stop snoring from the first night of wearing the mouthpiece, as long as the molding process has been successful. If after the first night the snoring does not stop, remold the mouthpiece with your jaw pushed slightly more forward.Will it affect my bite?
Long term use of mandibular devices can affect your bite. SnoreMeds is recommended for the temporary relief of snoring. For a long term or permanent solution, please contact your health professional.
