SnoreMeds snoring mouthpiece review

So as I'm sure none of you know, I snore really, really badly. No amount of repositioning my body or other such things has given me (read: my wife) any relief from my freight train inspired snoring. I have used sprays for my throat, breathe right strips, saline nasal spray.........Then I started looking into more hardcore options. I considered a sleep study but my doctor warned me against it unless I was very sure I had sleep apnea. My wife says I don't have sleep apnea symptoms.

I found the SnoreMeds Snoring Mouthpiece solution. It cost about $40 after shipping from Amazon. What you get is a mouthpiece, a "spatula" that you use during the mold process and a storage container. 

What SnoreMeds claims: Snoring can occur when the tissue in your throat relaxes and gets closer together. When you breath the tissue vibrates causing snoring. SnoreMeds mouthpiece moves you lower jaw forward preventing your throat from relaxing and keeping that tissue from vibrating.

I followed the directions for creating my mold. I heated my water and poured it into a coffee cup and used the spatula to dip my mouthpiece in the water for the designated time frame, removed it, counted to three, pushed my lower jaw forward and bit down.  Once I had made my mold I went to bed. The first night I had to take it out for a couple of hours due to tooth pain. It turned out that when I made the bite impression I had smooshed a part of the outer piece into the tooth area and that caused excess pressure against one tooth. A couple of minutes with a razor blade fixed that. The next night I wore it all night. In the morning my wife said it was a brilliant success. 

A couple of days later I got a cold. What I found was that with my nose stopped up I would open my mouth wider to breath and my teeth would leave the mouthpiece and my jaw would shift into it's normal position allowing me to snore. Once my cold went away I was able to sleep without snoring.

The side affects are discomfort in your jaw and or teeth. I have had no jaw discomfort and some people have problems with their jaw not wanting to go into it's normal position, ie not in the forward position. I have not had that problem. I do have some tooth discomfort but it is minor and goes away quickly. This product is best done by your dentist. they do a custom mold and I suppose can monitor your teeth and jaw to keep an eye out for any potential damage. I choose to skip the dentist and buy this product instead. I don't mind taking my health, teeth etc into my own hands.

When I purchaased the product the seller never shipped it. Once I started emailing them they sent out "another" box with two mouthpieces to make up for it. I have not used the antibacterial storage container. I just clean it with Listerine and a tooth brush. But let me tell you, this thing gets funky. You have to clean it. 

Overall I am very happy with this mouthpiece and will continue to use it until I can afford to do something more permanent like surgery.

Yeah my poor wife suffered a lot before this thing. Every once in a while I will still snore but only for very brief periods of time. Luckily for my wife she works second shift and gets to sleep in some. For the price this thing is a pretty safe bet. Others I looked at were twice the cost.

I don't want to die without any scars.

i'm curious why your doctor would be against a sleep study unless you were sure you had sleep apnea? it's not like a sleep study would hurt you in anyway if you didn't have sleep apnea, you'd at least see if you were getting enough oxygen while you sleep since you're not breathing right. not that i'm going against what your doctor said, just curious why he's against it

Re: SnoreMeds snoring mouthpiece review

Two different doctors told me not to get the sleep study unless my wife felt I had the symptoms. There reason was insurance. They both separately told me it can affect my rates as well as my ability to get independent coverage later in life even if I'm not diagnosed with sleep apnea. Now one did say that if my wife said I had the symptoms he would order the test for me. Wife says I don't so we left it at that. I had heard from other sources similar stories of people get priced out of their insurance after sleep apnea tests. The logic appears to be that a lot of people don't stick with the treatment for sleep apnea. That puts them at an increased risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, etc......

So they weren't flat out against it but cautioned me about getting one if I didn't specifically need it. As always talk to your family doctor if you think you need any medical treatment. I'm just a guy with a high school diploma who gets called doctor not an actual doctor.

I don't want to die without any scars.

Re: SnoreMeds snoring mouthpiece review
I am glad that your snoring problem has been alleviated. It is necessary to stop snoring by using snoring mouthpieces if in any case you can't afford to undergo surgery. You also have to clean your mouthpiece regularly to prevent possible complication of bacterial invasion in the mouth.

There are many things he can do on his own to help mild to moderate sleep apnea such as losing weight, regular exercise, quitting smoking and avoiding caffeine and alcohol.However, if his sleep apnea is moderate to severe, or he already tried self-help strategies and lifestyle changes , i suggest that he consults a doctor. Doctors can evaluate your symptoms and help you find an effective treatment such as using snoring mouthpieces.

SnoreMeds snoring mouthpiece scam
I ordered the womens SnoreMeds mouthpiece. When I received it I opened the package and could tell it would be too small. I sent an email the SnoreMeds website immediately asking for instructions on returning and replacing product. I received no reply and have sent two additional requests for help. This company does not respond to e-mails. I have returned the product with a written request for replacement, have not heard anything yet. I would like to call them but the phone number on their website does not work. If anyone has a suggestion for contacting this company I would appreciate the information.
