SnoreRx Review - UPDATED Aug. 2017
There is literally a myriad of devices and solutions that promise to help you stop snoring, but as we all know, not all of them actually work. We are happy to bring you this detailed SnoreRx review, depicting has a unique, efficient, and reliable anti-snoring device that is both easy to use and delivers exactly what it promises.
What Is SnoreRx
SnoreRx belongs to the group of oral anti-snoring aids or, more precisely, to the group of mandibular advancement devices. This is one of the most reliable and convenient types of anti-snoring aids and the market is flooded with different versions based, more or less, on the same concept.
SnoreRx follows the same principles as other mandibular advancement devices. When placed inside the oral cavity, it holds the jaw in the forward position, which, also prevents the tongue from dropping to the back of the mouth, causing snoring. With SnoreRx, the tongue and the jaw are in their right position, the airflow is normal, and the throat muscles do not vibrate.
SnoreRx has been made entirely in the United States. It uses the safest materials available and has been FDA-approved. As the manufacturer’s website states, it meets and in some aspects even exceeds all the established medical and dental standards. It’s compatible with Medicaid as well. Furthermore, it has been certified and endorsed by the AASM (American Academy of Sleep Medicine), the most important organization in the field of sleep disorders and issues.
How Is It Different
As we said, SnoreRx is based on the same principles as other snoring aids of its kind. However, there are several huge differences between SnoreRx and the rest that make this particular device an absolute leader on the market and put it way ahead of the competitors’ products.
The biggest advantage that SnoreRx has over the competitors is the fact it’s adjustable. Many people avoid mandibular advancement devices for snoring for the simple reason they feel uncomfortable and sometimes even prevent them from falling asleep and getting a good night’s rest. In some cases, ill-fitting MADs can even cause jawbone pain.
With SnoreRx, that is never an issue since this device can be calibrated up to 10 millimeters in 1 millimeter increments. This delicate calibration allows you to find the perfect fit for your SnoreRx device in your mouth and to sleep comfortably and without snoring.
In addition to this unique technology, which the company trademarked as Flex-Jaw, the SnoreRx device also has a feature called Posi-Lock, which allows it to stay in the preset position as long as you like. Also, unlike some other products on the market, SnoreRx does not make use of rubber bands and various screws and springs which often cause devices to malfunction, so that’s another bonus for this product.
SnoreRx is made of patented copolymer materials that provide maximum comfort and protection for your teeth.
Fitting The Mouthpiece
SnoreRx is an anti-snoring mouthpiece that requires molding in order to achieve the perfect fit and give the best results. What makes this aid really stand out is that it can be adjusted by 1 millimeter increments, which gives plenty of room for customization and improves the effectiveness of the device. The better the fit, the less you will snore, especially if you find the perfect forward position for your jaw by using the convenient small increments.
Before adjusting the increments, you will need to mold the device to fit your jaw perfectly, just like a dentist does when he makes dentures. To do this, you will need some water, a pot, some more fresh water and kitchen utensils like tongs or a spoon with holes in it. Bring the water to a boil in a pot (alternatively, use a microwave to boil the water, just make sure not to microwave the device itself because it will damage the material) and remove from heat. Place the device in the hot water and leave it for exactly 90 seconds. The device tends to float so you will need to keep it submerged with a spoon or tongs. Do not use a fork or a knife. After 90 seconds, quickly dip the mouthpiece in some cold water to cool it down and then place it in your mouth and bite down firmly for 30 seconds. Take the mouthpiece out of your mouth and rinse under some cold running water for 60 seconds. This will harden the material and your device will be ready to use.
Next, you will need to find the perfect adjustment for your lower jaw. Hold the mouthpiece in the reverse C position and use your fingers to keep the top part up and to push the sides forward. As you push, the lower part will move one notch forward. Move one side at a time, one notch at a time. Start with just one millimeter and if it doesn’t work (if you don’t stop snoring), move one notch further until you reach the right position.
- Boil some water, remove from heat and submerge the mouthpiece. Leave it in for 90 seconds.
- Remove from hot water, dip into tap water to cool it down and then bite for 30 seconds.
- Place under cold running water for 60 seconds, then let dry.
- Adjust the lower tray by pushing it forward by one millimeter.
- Re-adjust by another millimeter if the snoring doesn’t stop.
- Repeat until the right position is reached.
The SnoreRx website offers a special price for online purchases. It’s $99 for one device (compared to $129 for purchases made through other channels) and $154 for two devices (one for home and one for travel or a spare one in case something happens or you lose your primary device). Shipping is around $10, which makes sense if you consider they ship through FedEx, so it’s fast, convenient, and reliable, unlike shipping made through “snail mail.”
When it comes to the price, SnoreRx may seem cheap or expensive, depending on your point of view. If you have tried dozens of other snoring aids and none of them worked, you already spent tons of money on this issue so spending $99 for a device you will literally only buy once is definitely a bargain. On the other hand, if you are a novice in the area of snoring devices, the price may seem a bit exaggerated.
