Mouthpiece Type:Mandibular advancement device (MAD)
Snoring is a common issue, with nearly half of all adult sleepers experiencing it at some point in their lives. SnoreRX was founded in 2009 with the goal of addressing this problem. The company specializes in mouthpieces engineered to reduce or eliminate snoring.
All SnoreRX products are designed and made in California. SnoreRX offers two mandibular advancement devices (MADs): the SnoreRX and the SnoreRX Plus. A MAD is a mouthpiece that helps reduce snoring by moving the lower jaw forward, thus opening the airway.
The SnoreRX is micro-adjustable, allowing users to shift the position of the lower jaw in 1-millimeter increments. Additionally, the boil-and-bite fitting method creates a custom impression for a precise fit. It also features an open front to allow for ventilation and breathing through the mouth.
The SnoreRX Mouthpiece is made with an FDA-cleared copolymer plastic, the same material used in athletic mouthguards to prevent jaw and mouth injuries. It is constructed with firmer pads on the outside and softer, customizable pads on the inside. The SnoreRX Plus Mouthpiece offers all of the same features, with the addition of full lateral adjustability for added comfort.
We’ll cover the materials, pricing, performance, and company policies for the original SnoreRX Mouthpiece.

SnoreRX Mouthpiece Review Breakdown
The SnoreRX Mouthpiece is a customizable and adjustable MAD intended to reduce or eliminate snoring. It is made of FDA-cleared copolymer plastic. The durable construction results in a longer lifespan than most MADs, lasting around a year and a half for most users.
This mouthpiece is particularly suitable for value-minded shoppers who want a durable mouthpiece. It may not be suitable for those with poorly fitting crowns, bridges, or dentures. Those who prefer a minimalist design may not like the larger size of the SnoreRX Mouthpiece, as it may prevent the mouth from fully closing around the device.
Materials and Options
The SnoreRX Mouthpiece is designed with a universal fit and a customizable bite. The custom impressions can be done at home using the boil-and-bite method.
This process typically takes less than 5 minutes. SnoreRX recommends bringing a cup of water to a full boil in the microwave. Then, submerge the mouthpiece using the attached handle for exactly 60 seconds. After removing the device from the boiling water by the handle, immediately dip it into a second container of cool water for a couple of seconds to remove any hot water. Then, center your teeth in the top and bottom grooves and bite down firmly for about 30 seconds to fit the mouthpiece to the teeth.
Once the impression has been made properly, dip the mouthpiece in cool water for about 5 minutes to set it.

Prices and Sizing
Mandibular advancement devices (MADs) can range widely in price, but most cost between $50 and $150. The primary factors that affect price are material and customizability.
The SnoreRX Mouthpiece lands toward the middle of this average price range. The price-point of the SnoreRX is due to the FDA-cleared copolymer plastic construction and micro-adjustability. The SnoreRX Plus Mouthpiece costs more than the SnoreRX, as it offers increased lateral adjustability for added comfort.
SnoreRX offers a discount for shoppers ordering two mouthpieces of the same style.

When shopping for an anti-snoring mouthpiece, shoppers may want to consider its adjustability, expected lifespan, cleaning instructions, and whether or not it needs a prescription.
The SnoreRX Mouthpiece offers adjustability for users, which can aid in overall comfort and effectiveness. The durable construction is likely to appeal to shoppers who do not want the added expense of frequently replacing a mouthpiece.
Shoppers will want to follow the care instructions provided by the manufacturer to prevent any damage or premature wear.
The SnoreRX mouthpiece is adjustable. The lower jaw portion can be adjusted incrementally and readjusted at any time. The fit is further customizable through the boil-and-bite fitting method.
The SnoreRX Mouthpiece is expected to last up to a year and a half, making it more durable than other MADs. The device may need to be replaced sooner if you are prone to grinding or clenching your teeth, as this can wear down the plastic.
SnoreRX recommends cleaning the mouthpiece daily by brushing it with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Regular cleaning helps prevent the buildup of bacteria.
Disinfecting the mouthpiece with a specially designed mouthguard spray is also advised. Allow the mouthpiece to dry fully after each cleaning.
Purchasers should avoid the use of harsh chemicals, denture tablets, and abrasive cleaners when caring for the SnoreRX Mouthpiece.
The SnoreRX Mouthpiece does not require a prescription, though the company advises that you let your dentist know that you are using it at your periodic examinations.
How Does the SnoreRX Mouthpiece Work?
Snoring is caused by the vibration of tissues in the back of the throat. This may occur because the airway is restricted. Moving the tongue and lower jaw forward can help open the airway and reduce snoring.
There are two common types of anti-snoring devices that help keep the airway open as you sleep: tongue retaining devices (TRDs) and mandibular advancement devices (MADs). TRDs use suction to press the tongue down and keep the airway open, while MADs work by gently moving the lower jaw forward.
The SnoreRX is an MAD that can be adjusted in 1-millimeter increments to advance the jaw forward. This makes it suitable to a wide variety of sleepers. Once the boil-and-bite custom fitting has been done, SnoreRX recommends wearing the mouthpiece at the 1 millimeter setting on the first night, then adjusting by 1 millimeter per night until the desired setting is reached. Most users find that their snoring is reduced with a setting of 3 millimeters to 5 millimeters.
