FAQ's

 

Will SnoreMedic work for me?

The effectiveness of the SnoreMedic mouthpiece has been confirmed by medical studies. Snoring mouthpieces are recommended by medical organizations such as The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM.) Read this article for more information.

How does it work?

When you sleep, the muscles of the throat and soft palate relax, restricting airflow in the upper airway. As the air you breathe moves through the restricted space, it causes the tissues around the throat to vibrate. These vibrations create the sound we know as snoring.

Snoring may be an annoying sound, but the effects of snoring go beyond annoyance. Poor air supply to the body can drain your energy and have lasting effects, including increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

SnoreMedic gently holds the jaw, preventing it from falling back. This keeps the airway open. You will get the restful sleep and unrestricted breathing you deserve when you use SnoreMedic.

Poor sleep and poor breathing can leave you feeling tired and groggy during the day. You will be amazed at the way SnoreMedic impacts your life.

Is it safe?

Yes. The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine acknowledges that oral appliances are a safe and effective way to stop snoring. As with all medical devices, be sure to carefully read and follow all instructions and labeling before use to ensure that SnoreMedic works safely and effectively.

Is it difficult to acclimate to wearing SnoreMedic?

Typically, the adjustment period takes about three to five nights of consistent use. It is perfectly normal for your jaw, teeth, and gums to feel moderately sore and fatigued at first. This discomfort is much like getting used to braces or a retainer for the first time. However, it is not normal to experience severe, sharp, or ongoing pain. Any of these symptoms may be an indication of a more serious problem with your jaw called temporomandibular disorder (TMD). If you experience these problems or believe you have TMD, discontinue use immediately and contact your health care professional.

How often does my SnoreMedic device need to be replaced?

With nightly use, SnoreMedic typically lasts 8-15 months. However, those who grind their teeth at night (bruxism) may need to replace the device more often. For your convenience, sign up for our program to get a new mouthpiece sent to you every 8 months at a discount.

Does SnoreMedic allow for mouth breathing?

SnoreMedic allows for breathing through the mouth through the air passage in the center of the device.

Can I wear SnoreMedic with dentures or a bridge?

We do not recommend this use of SnoreMedic and advise users to consult their doctor or dentist.

I have teeth implants. Can I use SnoreMedic?

Implants are not an issue if they have had 12 months or longer to ossify. However, for those who have had implants within the last 12 months, SnoreMedic is not recommended.

Does SnoreMedic pose any choking hazards?

No. SnoreMedic’s design is such that it cannot be swallowed. The device contains no small pieces.

Is SnoreMedic covered by Medicare or insurance?

Snoring is considered to be a non-medical issue by most insurance companies. For this reason, SnoreMedic is not covered by Medicare and insurance.

How does SnoreMedic differ from the athletic mouthguards I see at my local sports store?

Although they may look similar, the devices serve a very different function. Athletic mouthguard are only designed to protect the teeth from impact. While SnoreMedic is a simple device with a simple function, countless hours of research and development ensure that SnoreMedic is comfortable, effective and safe. We have taken measures to ensure that the materials, design, and craftsmanship meet the highest regulatory standards.

Will use of SnoreMedic increase saliva?

 

The mouthpiece can initially be interpreted by the body as a type of food material, which requires saliva. This is natural and dissipates over time.
