What Is the AirSnore?
AirSnore is a stop snoring mouthpiece that technically fits into the ‘Mandibular Advancement Device’ category (MAD). You can also buy a product on this site that is called the AirSnore Combo, which is actually two different products that come in a set. One is the MAD itself, while the other is a bottle of an essential oil solution that is supposed to help clean out the nasal passages through aromatherapy at the same time.
But in this review, we are going to more specifically focus on the AirSnore mouthpiece itself. This is a product that we have literally tried before, so we are going to talk about not just our research, but also our personal experience with it.
At any rate, here is what you need to know.
What Does the AirSnore Claim to Do?
The AirSnore Mouthpiece is actually a pretty simple piece of anti-snoring gear, and is meant to work about the same as any other MAD. The device is custom-molded to make it fit using standard boil and bite technology, and is then placed inside your mouth while you sleep.
It moves your jaw forward just enough to create more room in the back of the airway, which allows you to breathe a bit more easily while you are trying to rest. The device also has ‘breathing holes’ in the front of it that help you to breathe through your mouth while you sleep as well, which is pretty awesome.
How to Use the AirSnore
Like most MADs, the AirSnore is pretty simple to operate. You need to mold it before you use it by using the boil-and-bite technology, as per the instructions included in the package when you first open it up. One good though about the AirSnore is that you can mold it several times until it fits perfectly, which is something that we really liked about it.
Once you have done this, you insert it into the mouth before going to bed and wear/use it while you sleep. It might take a bit of time to get used to sleeping with a mouthpiece in your mouth, but the slight discomfort (if any) that you experience should not be a problem once you have gotten a bit more used to wearing it.
It is also recommended that you take care of the device after each use by soaking it in cold water, mixed with toothpaste, for 10 to 15 minutes every night. Then, let it air dry before putting it away.
Clinical Background & Certificates
On the FAQ page of the official company website, it says that AirSnore is ‘manufactured and supplied by a trusted and leading name in the health industry,’ and that it is manufactured in ‘FDA approved facilities to the highest standards.’
But beyond this, we have seen no indication that this product has had any clinical trials, or has received any certificates.
Who Is AirSnore For?
AirSnore seems to be designed for men and/or women who are having snoring problems. The device was not designed to combat Sleep Apnea, but it was designed to help alleviate the symptoms of problematic snoring, especially if that snoring is keeping a loved one awake over the course of the night.
One thing to mention is that some people can’t use this device if they are wearing dentures or have bad teeth. This is not true in every case, but if your case is severe enough, you may need to consult your doctor before trying to use the AirSnore.
Who May Not Benefit From Using The AirSnore?
People with teeth bad enough that their condition would prevent them from using the product are the main demographic of people who would probably not benefit from using the AirSnore. Kids and teenagers may also not be able to benefit from the device, as devices like this are usually only designed for individuals 18 years of age or older.

Unfortunately, we were unable to figure out exactly what this product is made from on the official product website. It might be listed somewhere, but if it is, we were not able to find it.
One thing that we really liked about this product was that it comes with a 60 day satisfaction guarantee. You simply try it, and if you don’t end up liking it, you can return it along with all of the packaging within 60 days for a full refund.
We really like it when products come with money back guarantees—and this product certainly met this requirement.
Awards & Media Background
As far as we can tell, most reviews for this product are positive—and we can see why. Having tried the device ourselves, we can safely say that it is, at the very least, a competitive device that can do a lot to help you with your snoring problems.
But aside from this, we have not really seen any reference to any awards or media coverage.
Pricing & Checkout Security
You can buy 1 AirSnore Mouthpiece for just $49.95, making it one of the more affordable devices of its kind on the market at the moment. We were quite impressed with this price, actually… so kudos to the company for making their product more affordable!
As for checkout security, their checkout is guaranteed by Norton, and comes with identity theft protection, a guarantee for your purchase, and a lowest-price guarantee. After looking through all of this, we were definitely happy with the security offered on the site, and did not feel nervous about sharing payment information in the least.
Shipping Costs to New Zealand
To make double sure that we were answering this question accurately, and also to test their customer service response to questions, we actually used the instant messenger on their website to ask a member of customer service this question. It only took them about three minutes to respond to our query. And as it turns out, they offer free shipping to New Zealand, though some fees and extra costs may be incurred, depending on exactly where you live.
Any Signs That AirSnore Can Cause Any Side Effects?
There were not any side effects listed on the company website, though we know from experience that all MADs can cause minor problems like minor discomfort and some soreness in the gums and jaw.
Usually, these minor side effects will tend to resolve themselves on their own once you’ve gotten used to the product—but some people do have a lot of trouble with them.
In the grand scheme of things, this is a pretty awesome and comfortable device—so side effects were not an issue for us.
Summary of Our Findings
In summary, there were a lot of good things to talk about when it came to this device.
We really liked the design. We liked that it could be custom-molded with boil and bite technology. We liked that it was comfortable, and that it was soft enough to be gentle while still being firm enough to do its job and last. We liked that there were breathing holes in the front of it, and we liked that it is produced in FDA approved facilities.
We also loved the fact that it ships free to New Zealand, and that it comes with a 60 day money back guarantee.
Now, with that being said, we also really liked how the product worked. We got to open it up and try it ourselves, and we were certainly impressed with it. In all honesty, it is just a simple, yet inexpensive MAD. It is not fancy. It is not adjustable. It is just a device that will help you to advance your jawline so that you have a good chance of overcoming your snoring woes.
But there are also a few downsides. For one, we wish that we could have found some information about what it was made out of. Secondly, we also wish that we could have seen some clinical evidence for it. Granted, this is not a necessity, but we certainly always see clinical evidence as a huge plus.
Also, how hard is it to give your product at least a small test? It can’t be that hard… so why wouldn’t you want to do it?
This continues to boggle us, especially with products (like this one) that have been on the market for some time.
It would also be nice to see FDA clearance granted to this device. But then again, this is perhaps the least of our complaints. FDA clearance doesn’t necessarily mean that it is going to work any better. It is more of a ‘peace of mind’ thing to help you feel better about what you are actually getting.
But in the end, after all is said and done, we really did like the AirSnore. We actually tried out the entire combo, and the AirSnore drops were awesome as well. They really helped when used together with the mouthpiece, which is a pretty big plus.
All in all, you get a great product for a very reasonable price with the AirSnore, so it is most certainly worth checking out if you are in the market for a quality, yet reasonably priced mandibular advancement device.
