The SnoreMedic is like so many other mouthpieces I have tested and is classified as a Mandibular Advancement Device (MADs) that holds the lower jaw forward.
The SnoreMedic resembles a sports mouthguard and is made from a type of transparent thermoplastic that is designed to mold to the shape of your jaw, keeping it in a natural position even while asleep. The SnoreMedic counters the tendency of the jaw to relax and constrict airways, resulting in vibration as the air passes through and therefore snoring.
Because they are designed for use during sleep, comfort is an important factor. This mouthpiece only comes in one size but uses the “boil and bite” method of molding to your unique jaw shape to ensure a good fit.
MADs work by stopping the soft palate and surrounding airways from relaxing and closing, which is a major cause of snoring.
Some devices need to be professionally fitted by a dentist (and therefore cost significantly more), but this anti-snore mouthpiece is designed to be custom-fitted at home, using the “boil and bite” method.
What makes this product different?
SnoreMedic is a relatively new device that is similar to other products that have been on the market for longer, like the AirSnore and Sleep Tight. The main difference between this anti-snoring appliance and its competitors is the price.
There are several very similar design concepts available for purchase, but they come at a higher cost.
This appliance has a hole in the front that allows the wearer to breathe through their mouth while asleep.
This means that one of the major advantages of this device is the ability to use them even when your nose is congested. Breathing through the mouth without a corrective device can be a cause of snoring, and the SnoreMedic can help correct this issue.
If you’re new to anti-snoring devices, you might not realize that they do need a short adjustment period before you feel normal and completely comfortable again.
If your jaw, gums, and teeth are slightly sore for the first few nights, that’s quite normal.
The makers of this anti-snore appliance suggest at least 3-5 nights of continuous use of the mouthpiece at night to give your jaw muscles time to adjust.
About the Company
This anti-snoring device is made by a company called Cures for Snores LLC., which is based in Utah.
The company was founded in 2014, but the SnoreMedic wasn’t released until 2016. Unfortunately for my international readers, this anti-snore solution is only available for purchase in the U.S.
The company seems to have little information available online, and while the website states a 90% success rate and that medical studies have been conducted to prove the SnoreMedic’s effectiveness, there are no direct links to confirm any of this information.
The device does not appear to be FDA approved. However, as the mouthpiece is so similar to other products and carries a 30-day money back guarantee, it is worth a try.
The Fitting Process
Before using the SnoreMedic, make sure that you carefully read all the instructions provided. You also might like to watch video tutorials (I found some on YouTube) to make sure you are following the right steps.
Because a dentist is not custom fitting your device, it is important that you get the fit exactly right so it will be the most effective at controlling your snoring. If you get a bad fit, it could be ineffective or cause your jaw pain.
To fit the SnoreMedic:
- The device comes with a plug that should be inserted into the air holes before fitting. Check that you have correctly fitted the plug to the mouthpiece.
- Boil water, and leave it to cool slightly for around 20 seconds.
- Place your mouthpiece in the water and make sure it is fully submerged for 17 seconds.
- Remove the mouthpiece with a safe tool, like tongs or a fork.
- Let it cool for 5 seconds.
- Place the device in your mouth and bite down firmly in the position you want your jaw to remain in while
- Mould the outside of the device to your gums using your fingers.
- Once you are confident of the fit, remove the mouthpiece and place in cold water for at least a minute to harden the material.
If you don’t feel that the fit is exactly right the first time, you can repeat the process until the device sits comfortably.
To test whether it has molded correctly, try taking it out of your mouth once it has cooled and replacing it, to see if the shape is correct.
- While this device can be reset by boiling again, try to get a good fit the first time as constant re-boiling can affect how long the device will last.
- When fitting the device, you might need to hold your jaw slightly forward as the SnoreMedic does not provide automatic jaw adjustment.
- The mouthpiece will need to be gently cleaned with a toothbrush and toothpaste (not whitening toothpaste) every morning after use, and then carefully dried to remain hygienic.
- Once a week, soak the mouthpiece in denture cleaner.
Price and Warranty
The SnoreMedic anti-snore mouthpiece retails for $39.99 at the time of writing, plus a small shipping charge.
I had a pop-up banner offer me a 15% discount while browsing the official site, which made the device less than $40 including shipping. I thought that made it a good deal.
This MAD device should last you 8-15 months, although it might need to be replaced sooner if you grind your teeth when you sleep.
SnoreMedic does offer a discount if you sign up to their program, which sends you a replacement every 8 months, so you don’t have to remember to place the order yourself.
They also offer a 30-day money back guarantee, no questions asked.
The 30 days begins from when you actually receive the product, not just from the date the order was placed.
If the device is not suitable, you can return it by filling out a small and easily accessible online form.
You will have to cover return shipping charges, but as they should amount to no more than $5, it’s still a reasonable investment.
My Personal Experience
I was very happy with the price and function of the SnoreMedic. It shipped quickly and had a very reasonable price point for this type of device.
I had no trouble fitting the anti-snore mouthpiece, and once my mouth had adjusted, I found it was very comfortable to wear.
I did need the recommended 4 nights until my jaw adjusted, and I did find that I had a small problem with excess saliva. However, that issue also resolved itself over time.
After testing so many MAD devices myself, it’s common to drool during the adjustment period.
I didn’t find the SnoreMedic drastically pulled my jaw forward like some MADs, but it was enough to reduce my snoring and help me (and my wife) get a good night’s sleep.
The reviews available, were very positive, which is surprising given how relatively new the product is.
Here are some testimonials from customers:
“I was clueless about any kind of snoring issues until I met my husband! I had to take action if I wanted to have any type of peaceful sleep, that’s when I decided to find something to stop his snoring and let me sleep. SnoreMedic has gone above and beyond my expectations! He doesn’t snore anymore, and I sleep like a baby. Thank you so much!!” – Laura
“Really comfortable, when I’m sleeping I don’t even notice I am wearing it. The material is great quality and it came packaged fine. Great buy for me personally.” – Lewis
“Well I can’t say enough about this, I am really happy with the purchase. The SnoreMedic mouthpiece is effective and comfortable to wear. $40 is such a great deal to stop snoring!” – Lizzie
“I recently found out I was a bad snorer. I went online to find something that would help me stop snoring, and most of the fixes I found were some ridiculous setup. Covering my entire head, nose pieces that looked terrible, or some way-to-big mouthpiece with bad reviews. I was really starting to worry I’d never find anything that would fit me and fix this darn snoring problem. Finally, I found the SnoreMedic, all great reviews and I made the purchase. Instructions were super easy to follow, and it’s comfy and the storage container is great too. Great buy, well worth it!!” – Kim
Positives and Negatives
- Low cost of only $39.99, not expensive at all.
- 30-Day money back guarantee, no questions asked. Great if you can’t get used to it or just need to return it (for any reason).
- Easy to fit using the boil and bite method.
- One size fits most.
- Customizes to your mouth, no adjustments are necessary.
- Very similar product to other more expensive options.
- Airhole which allows for mouth breathing. This is great for those that want to use it but might have breathing problems with their nose.
- Can cause mild soreness in the mouth and excess saliva; however, this is common during the time period when your mouth is getting used to the device.
- Quite large, might not comfortably fit.
- Does need a few nights for your mouth to adjust.
- Cannot be worn by snorers with dentures, caps, bridgeworks or crowns. The way MAD devices pull on the teeth, it can compromise any type of dental work done.
- Not cleared for use by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
It also might be a good place to start if you are new to the world of anti-snore devices and would like to trial something inexpensive and easy to use.
The money back guarantee is a great selling point for this product.
Snoring is such a complex issue that even the most complicated, expensive product isn’t guaranteed to work for everyone, so it is great that you can test this product out without pouring your money down the drain.
I found my snoring wasn’t completely eliminated, but it was definitely reduced, and I like that I could continue to use the device when I had a blocked nose.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to try a simple, inexpensive anti-snoring solution.

Which Product Should I Buy?
With well over 100 products on the market it can obviously be quite daunting to decide, “Which one?”
To help ease the decision process I have created a comparison chart where you can effortlessly assess each product and its features, price, pros and cons. I have also written several detailed reviews for those devices that I believe to be leading products.
If you would rather not spend a lot of time reading reviews, please take a look at the article linked here: My Mouthpiece Recommendation. It’s a list of three products which I believe, based on my extensive experience, are the best options available to people who suffer from snoring.
