What Is the SnoreRX?
The SnoreRX is basically a mandibular advancement device that was designed, engineered, and manufactured in California in the USA. We’ve tried the device ourselves, and have also done extensive research on it—so we were pretty excited to finally get all of our thoughts put down here in one place.
The SnoreRX is, perhaps, most well-known for being a premium-grade stop snoring mouthpiece—and rightly so. Not only does this mouthpiece come with some features that are not usually included in other MADs, but it is also priced a bit higher than most of its competitors.
But does this make it worth the money? Or would you be better suited to spend less on a comparable product?
Here is what you need to know.
What Does the SnoreRX Claim to Do?
The SnoreRX claims to help you stop snoring when you follow the directions and use it the right way—and is, in the grand scheme of things, not so different from other MADs like it. Obviously there are some details that make it a bit different. But with all things considered, the SnoreRX is just a mandibular advancement device designed to help you stop snoring whenever you use it.
As for how it works, the SnoreRX, when worn, was made to gently advance the lower jaw to create more room in the upper airway while you sleep. This process is aided by your ability to custom mold the device to your own mouth, and also by the fact that you can adjust it in 1 millimeter increments to give yourself even more jaw advancement if you need it.
The result is a full-featured MAD designed to cater to just about any snoring sufferer who may have need of some lower jaw advancement to solve their snoring woes.
How to Use the SnoreRX
Using the SnoreRX is pretty simple.
First, you need to custom-mold the device to your mouth using the boil-and-bite technology, as per the instructions that you will get with it.
Secondly, you need to give it a try and set the adjustment to the proper place for your jaw. If you advance it too much, it might be uncomfortable. But if you don’t advance it enough, it may not do as much good—so the trick is to find the ‘middle ground’ that will work the best for you.
After this, you only have to wear the device while you are sleeping. But keep in mind that in order for it to work, you will need to be wearing it constantly. You cannot, for example, wear it for only part of the night and expect it to help for the entire night.
Clinical Data & Certification
We are usually disappointed by a lack of clinical data for devices like this… and unfortunately, the same seemed to be true of the SnoreRX. While we were disappointed about this seeming lack of clinical evidence, however, (we could not find reference to any clinical data on the site) we did find a few other things.
For one, there are dozens of positive customer reviews on the site, so that is a good thing. And secondly, there are quite a few quotes from doctors who recommend the device—so that is another positive upside.
As far as certificates go, the SnoreRX is indeed cleared by the FDA for the reduction of snoring—so that is another upside. This does not mean that the device is going to be perfect—but it does mean that it has been cleared for use, which is enough to give us some added peace of mind about it.
Who Is the SnoreRX For?
The SnoreRX is intended to be used to treat snoring for adults over the age of 18. Because children’s teeth and jaws are still developing, you are not supposed to use the device if you are under 18. Also, there are some guidelines that you should adhere to when using the SnoreRX… which mostly consists of a list of circumstances in which you shouldn’t use it.
Here is a list of those circumstances.
Who May Not Benefit From the SnoreRX?
You should not use the SnoreRX if you…
- Have Central Sleep Apnea
- Are under 18
- Have crowns, caps, or implants (unless your doctor says it will be fine anyway)
- Wear braces, dentures, or any other type of dental appliances
- Suffer from a respiratory disorder
- Have a history of temporomandibular disease
- Wear a bridge or have partial dentures, unless your doctor says that it shouldn’t be a problem
More About the Company Behind the Brand
The SnoreRX is manufactured by a company called Apnea Sciences Corporation. Here is their basic contact information.
27121 Aliso Creek Road #140
Aliso Viejo, CA 92656
We were actually pretty impressed with the description of the product material provided to us in the FAQ page on the official SnoreRX website. Usually, companies are not as ‘specific’ about what their products are made out of… so kudos to SnoreRX for putting our minds to ease in this category.
According to the official product website, this product is made from two medical grade plastic trays, along with insert pads at the top and bottom, which is where you make your custom tooth impressions. All of the components used are hypoallergenic and cleared by the FDA.
Some people worry about the adjustable part of the device being a choking hazard… but we were pleased to learn that this part does not actually contain any small, choking-hazard-sized pieces. The entire device is made up of 4 significantly sized components.
The SnoreRX comes with a full, 100% satisfaction guarantee. To make use of this guarantee, you simply return the SnoreRX within 30 calendar days of receiving it. If you do, you will receive a refund for the purchase price, not including shipping costs.
We were pretty happy to hear that this device comes with a guarantee. This is, in our minds, an essential ingredient to a value-driven purchase in this market, as many of the more competitive devices come with one—so two thumbs up to the SnoreRX on this front as well.
Awards & Media Background
We have not really seen anything to indicate that this device has won any awards. But we do know that the internet is full of positive reviews for it. This might not make for much of a ‘mainstream’ media background, but it is certainly good to see.
Pricing & Checkout Security
SnoreRX is one of the pricier anti-snoring mouthpieces on the market today, but thankfully they do have a deal where you can buy two to significantly lower the price of the second one. On the main product website, you can buy one of their mouthpieces for $99, and two for $154. This is a pretty good deal, actually—but it is more expensive than most other mouthpieces that we’ve looked at.
Then again, with that being said, this product is also offering a bit more than a lot of devices offer, because it is adjustable—and that is certainly an upside.
The ability to adjust the mouthpiece does not necessarily guarantee that it will work. But it does mean that your odds of getting it to work for you will be increased.
And that is a good thing.
As far as a secure checkout is concerned, it is easy to see that this company’s website is Authorize.net verified. We have no reason to see this as being anything but secure, so that is a good thing.
Shipping Costs to New Zealand
To answer this question, we actually emailed customer service—not only to make sure that we understood the shipping costs to New Zealand, but also to see how good their customer service was.
Well, as it turns out, shipping is not too bad… and customer service is actually pretty awesome.
We were messaged back within an hour, and our question was answered very thoroughly. They say that they have a fulfillment center in Australia, so that is where New Zealand orders are shipped from. They also say that shipping is $9.95 for one unit, or $14.95 for two units.
This is not the cheapest shipping we have seen. Of course, we love free shipping the best! But we have also seen shipping to New Zealand cost more than this—so hey. We will take what we can get!
Are There Any Signs That SnoreRX Will Cause Any Side Effects?
First off, we must say kudos to SnoreRX for being so open about the side effect risks of their product. Some sites just don’t deal with these kinds of questions, while SnoreRX does a very good job of answering the question in their FAQ. So once again, two thumbs up to them on this front!
As far as actual side effects go, they say that any negative side effects are rare, but could possibly include…
- Tooth movement
- Obstruction of breathing through the mouth
- Excessive salivation
- Pain or soreness to the temporomandibular joint
- Soreness in the teeth or gums
It is also worth mentioning that pretty much any other MAD would also pose these types of potential side effects. It is also true that most of them tend to be short-term, and go away once you have gotten used to using the product.
Summary of Our Findings
If you are looking for a high-quality mandibular advancement device that has pretty much everything to offer, then the SnoreRX is going to be a product that you will like. Granted, it is a bit on the expensive side—but it is also proven with consistent customer feedback, made from high-quality materials, and is FDA approved.
You really can’t go wrong with this one, especially if you are willing to pay a higher price for something that you can be pretty assured will work well.
