What You Need To Know About SnoreRx
SnoreRx is a stop-snoring mouthpiece that is FDA cleared for the reduction of snoring. We came across this one because it actually has a lot of positive feedback online. But we wanted to know what was really going on with it.
This one has a lot of customization options, so we were pretty interested in it for that reason. We also really liked the website, and felt like it was done well – which is always nice. There was a very detailed FAQ section located there, which we used for some of our information-gathering. So this experience was a pretty positive one all the way around.
We also gave the product a try for ourselves, to see what we thought about it. Here is what we discovered.
(Note: There are a lot of stop snoring mouthpieces similar to this one on the market, but keep in mind that every brand is a little bit different. Just because one of them will work does not mean another brand will. So we make sure to be as detailed as possible in our reviews, so that you can find out how that specific brand performed for us. So this review is specifically intended to describe the SnoreRx, not any other device.)
SnoreRx: Product Classification & Instructions For Use
This product is definitely an MAD: A mandibular advancement device. This is one of our favorite types of stop snoring products, and for good reason. MADs help to treat the root causes of soft palate vibration… so we are always interested in learning about different options within this category.
As for instructions for use, the SnoreRx is actually pretty easy to use. To start with, you need to custom-fit it – which is done via boil-and-bite technology.
Next, you need to wear it while you sleep. But SnoreRx is also different because you can calibrate it. This makes it quite unique in the world of MADs, as not many of these products give you further customization options like this one.
Basically, this means that you can ‘calibrate’ the amount of jaw advancement that the device gives you by using the on-board settings mechanism. This is a pretty cool feature, and one that we are quite impressed with.
How Does SnoreRx Work?
SnoreRx pretty much works like any other MADs… but with more customization options.
So, what causes most cases of snoring is a phenomenon called ‘soft palate vibration.’ This happens when the soft tissues that line the airway relax and collapse-in during sleep. This restricts the airway, and causes vibrations when you breathe in.
Mouthpieces like the SnoreRx help to mitigate this problem by slightly advancing the lower jaw during sleep. This opens up the airway, and creates more room in the back of the throat… which does a lot to help prevent incidences of soft-palate vibration.
SnoreRx: Clinical Background And FDA Approval
The SnoreRx is cleared by the FDA for the reduction of snoring.
As far as clinical testing is concerned, we did a lot of looking around on the official product website – but were actually unable to find any direct reference to clinical tests. So if this device is clinically tested, we were unable to find any links to the data.
This was a bit of a downer for us. We always enjoy reading about clinical data, and prefer devices that have been tested.
Can There Be Any Side Effects?
Side effects with MADs are typically mild, and have to do with getting used to wearing a device like this in your mouth while you sleep. Some people find MADs cumbersome and difficult to acclimate to. For this reason, SnoreRx says that it can take three to five nights to really ‘get used to’ their mouthpiece.
Some other side effects can include drooling, a dry mouth, a sore jaw, and overall jaw muscle stiffness.
These problems generally resolve themselves over time… but if the device continues to cause you pain and discomfort, even after a week or more of use, then you might want to consider going in a different direction.
But part of the reason that this device is so filled with customization options is so that it can overcome some of the usual side effects associated with MADs. And on this note, it seems to do the job quite well.
How Much Does SnoreRx Cost?
This product costs $99 to order on the official product website. With that being said, we have seen this company run specials where their devices are as cheap as $79… so that is also something to take into account.
What Do We Know About The Company Behind SnoreRx?
SnoreRx is located in California in the United States. Here is the address provided on their official website, as well as some contact information for the company…
27121 Aliso Creek Road #140
Aliso Viejo, CA 92656
As far as company history is concerned, we learned that the ‘brain’ behind the SnoreRx is a company called Apnea Sciences Corporation. But aside from this, we were unable to learn much about them on the main company website.
We also learned that on the website, they maintain a rather extensive list of compliance information - which is very awesome!
SnoreRx offers an unconditional 30 day money back guarantee on their products - which is super-cool. We really like to see this, though it would also obviously be even better if it were a 60 or 90 day guarantee.
But yeah. 30 days is still way better than nothing.
Maintenance And Replacement
Maintenance is pretty easy with this product. You need to brush the SnoreRx every day with a tooth brush and tooth paste to clean it, though they also say an ultrasonic cleaner will work even better. You should also make sure to leave the device out to dry when you do clean it, as this will prevent material buildup and bacteria.
It is also recommended that you clean the device at least once a week with denture cleaner. You will also want to avoid using ‘abrasive’ cleaners, such as bleach, dishwashing soap, ammonia, etc.
As for how long the device will last, they say that the SnoreRx typically lasts for about a year, give or take. If you take care of it and it doesn’t wear too much, it can last over a year. If you grind your teeth in your sleep, it might not last as long.
What Can Users Expect From The SnoreRx?
If you buy the SnoreRx, you can expect to have to fit it before you use it. You may also need to make use of the calibration feature to set your preferred level of jaw advancement. But aside from this, you will mostly just have to get used to using it.
Does SoreRx Require A Doctor’s Involvement Or A Prescription?
No. You can use the SnoreRx even without a doctor’s involvement or a prescription.
We were pretty big fans of the SnoreRx. We actually tried this product not too long ago – and we were more than impressed by it. If you are looking for a very cool stop snoring mouthpiece from a company that truly seems to care about quality, then the SnoreRx is most certainly a mouthpiece that you should consider trying out.
We have reviewed a lot of different mouthpieces, and can say from experience that not many of them can boast the complexity and customization that this device provides. Yes, it is a bit expensive – but it is also FDA cleared, and is made of quality materials… so it is a trade-off that, in our opinion, is worth it if you are looking for something in this price bracket.
The Costs To Get The SnoreRx Shipped To Canada
Shipping varies by location, but they do offer fast shipping to Canada – which is awesome.
Where Can I Buy SnoreRx If I Live In Canada?
The best place to buy this product is on the official product website.
