We do not recommend that the mouthpiece be used for children as their teeth and jaw are still developing.
Some customers use the device just for their problem with grinding, however if you grind and snore it will work for both.
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 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.
It takes about 10 days to feel comfortable wearing the anti-snoring mouthpiece. The first few days 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.
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 you brush the mouthpiece like you would brush your teeth.
The mouthpiece lasts about 4 months. The mouthpiece will loose its strength and it will collect bacteria with long time useage.
People with sinus issues or who don’t breathe through their nose normally should seek medical advice before using anti-snoring devices
People with sleep apnoea should contact their health professional before using any anti snoring device. SnoreMeds is a device to help alleviate simple snoring issues if in doubt always seek professional advice
You have to have healthy teeth to wear the anti-snoring mouthpiece.
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.
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 relax, 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 of what we call snoring.
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, remolding if necessary, and to hold the mouthpiece while cleaning.
You should stop snoring from the first night of wearing the mouthpiece if the molding process has been successful. If after the first night the snoring does not stop, remold the mouthpiece with your jaw slightly more forward.
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.
