What Is the SnoreMeds?
The SnoreMed is a mandibular advancement device created for snorers to wear during sleep. The idea behind the device is that it is supposed to help advance the lower jawline, just slightly… which will help to create more room in the airway.
This will result in more space for the air to move through, which will also mean a reduced risk for snoring as it will help to do away with soft-palate vibration.
Soft palate vibration occurs when the air moving through the airway ‘vibrates’ the tissue of the soft palate, and it tends to happen the most when the airway gets closed off.
But there is also a lot about the SnoreMeds that we didn’t know before conducting this research. We know that it comes in two sizes, one for men and one for women, but what were the upsides and downsides? Is it expensive? Is it affordable? Does it come with a guarantee?
And perhaps most importantly… is it worth the cost?
Here is what we discovered, and what you need to know.
What Does the SnoreMeds Claim to Do?
According to the product website, the SnoreMeds anti-snoring mouthpiece is ‘recommended by dentists and doctors as a safe and effective, long term, snoring solution.’
The device also comes in two different sizes, meaning that you should be able to find the perfect fit for you based on whether you are a man or a woman. And beyond this, you can even custom-fit the device using boil and bite technology, which is a feature that is almost a necessity for MADs.
From all angles, SnoreMeds certainly seems to be a product that was designed well, and that has a good chance of getting the job done right.
How to Use the SnoreMeds
Using the SnoreMed anti-snoring mouthpiece is a pretty straightforward affair. First of all, you need to order the right size. Secondly, you need to mold the device to fit your jaw using the boil-and-bite technology, as outlined in the product instructions.
Keep in mind that you really only have to take this step when you first get the device. Once it’s done, you will not need to repeat the molding process.
After this, all that you really have to do is insert it into your mouth and use it while you sleep. You do have to have it inserted during the entire night if you want it to work, as it will not do you as much good if you only use it for a portion of the night. The device only helps you to advance your jawline if you are actually wearing it.
Insights Into Clinical Background & Certificates
As far as a clinical background goes, we didn’t really find any indication on the main product website that this device has undergone any clinical trials whatsoever. We did, however, see that the company says that you have an 85% chance that this anti-snoring mouthpiece will work for you.
We are not sure where they get this number from (It is probably based on the number of products that get returned, but there is no way to know for sure), but this is a pretty decent percentage chance that you will find relief with the device.
Granted, we would have rather seen some actual clinical evidence… but at least they give some kind of an idea for how likely it is to work.
And as far as certificates go, the device is said to be crafted of FDA approved materials. But other than this, we saw no reference to any sort of ‘certificate’ that the mouthpiece has earned.
Who Is SnoreMeds For?
SnoreMeds seems to be designed for anyone (with a few exceptions) who is suffering from a snoring problem who is willing to use a mandibular advancement device to try to solve it. Obviously, MADs are a bit more ‘invasive’ than some other types of anti-snoring products, which is why they can take some getting used to.
Who May Not Benefit From SnoreMeds?
Children under the age of 18 are not supposed to use this product, as their teeth and gums are still developing. On the same note, people who wear dentures, who have unhealthy teeth, or who have unhealthy gums are also not supposed to use this device.
More About the Company Behind the Brand
SnoreMeds seems to be not only the company, but the manufacturer of the device. Here is their address and contact information.

One thing that we quite liked about SnoreMeds was that they provided quite a bit of information online about the material that their product is made from. They say that it is manufactured from high quality, anti-allergenic thermoplastic. They also say that the material is completely safe, FDA approved for medicinal use, and that it is also BPA and Latex free.
We have actually reviewed some products that could not guarantee that they were latex free—so kudos to SnoreMeds for making this question an easy one, as some people do have latex allergies.
We also found out that the company recommends changing devices every four months—though we actually feel that this is overkill. It certainly seems like one of these mouthpieces could last at least 6 months, if not more—but it is also true that this may vary person to person.
For example. If you tend to grind your teeth while you sleep, you will probably find that this device will not last as long for you as it would for someone who is more ‘gentle’ on it, etc.
Another thing to note is that the material used to make this device is pretty soft and comfortable—so that is a plus as well.
The guarantee was another thing that we really liked about this product. According to the official website, SnoreMeds comes with a customer guarantee that offers a product refund for up to 45 days after the purchase date.
We have seen some longer customer guarantees, but 45 days is better than 30 days, so we were quite pleased with it. We are always really disappointed when a product doesn’t come with a guarantee or at least a warranty of some kind.
Awards & Media Background
As far as we can tell, this device has not won any awards. And as far as a media background goes, we have seen a lot of positive reviews for it—but that is about it on the publicity front.
Pricing & Checkout Security
Pricing is obviously a big deal for anti-snoring devices. A lot of people can’t really swing large amounts of money for something like this, so making it affordable is a pretty essential part of the process.
SnoreMeds comes in two different sizes, both of which are the same price—so that is definitely cool.
But pricing also seems to be where SnoreMeds really rises to the challenge. In fact, this is one of the most affordable MADs that we have ever tested—hands down. And we could not have been happier about it.
You can buy a single device for $46.95, two of them for $66.95, or three of them for $94.95.
Yes, you can literally get this device for less than $40 a pop if you buy a few at a time—which is AWESOME!
As far as checkout security is concerned, you can either use a PayPal checkout, or you can use the SnoreMeds store checkout. We are not totally sure how secure the SnoreMeds checkout is, simply because we don’t have a lot of information about it.
But we do know that PayPal is secure, so we were happy to see that offered as an option.
Shipping Costs to New Zealand
Shipping to New Zealand is, unfortunately, a bit on the expensive side—and costs about twice as much as shipping to the United States would be. You have to pay for Global Mail Service with Tracking to get this product shipped overseas, and the estimated charge for such a service would be $14.40.
This is certainly a bit on the expensive side, but at least they do offer a shipping option for New Zealand.
Is There Any Sign That SnoreMeds Could Cause Any Side Effects?
According to the official website, the only side effects associated with the SnoreMed device are minor, and usually go away after you get used to it. These include hyper-salivation, and minor morning discomfort after wearing it during the night.
But of course, this is something that we see pretty regularly with MADs (mandibular advancement devices) in-general. It is pretty much expected that it is going to take some time to get used to them once you start using them… so this isn’t really something that we hold too seriously against SnoreMeds.
Summary of Our Findings
At the end of the day, SnoreMeds is actually one of our favorite devices, mostly for this reason; It offers a quality anti-snoring mouthpiece and protection from snoring for a price that is a fraction of what most companies are asking for similar products.
Seriously—their 3 pack of MADs is literally cheaper than some of the most popular stop-snoring products on the market today, making them an awesome choice if you are hoping to solve your snoring woes without spending a ton of money.
Plus, they come with the ability to be custom-fitted, and can even be obtained in two different sizes.
If you’re looking for a quality MAD and don’t want to settle for something that is going to put a serious dent in your wallet, then SnoreMeds might have the answer you’ve been looking for.
- Comes with a 45 day customer guarantee
