SnoreMedic: Mouthpiece Review
What is SnoreMedic?
SnoreMedic is a snoring mouthpiece which works by gently holding the jaw, preventing it from falling back as the muscles around the upper airway relax. SnoreMedic is a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) which means it's a mouthpiece that works by moving the lower jaw forward, preventing the vibration that causes snoring.

How It Works
How does SnoreMedic work?
Airway obstruction causes snoring. SnoreMedic addresses this by keeping your airway open, holding your jaw in place.
After making a custom impression of your teeth with your lower jaw held slightly forward, your jaw will remain in place, allowing air to freely flow into the lungs.
Keeping your airway open will reduce most snoring.

Overall Review Of SnoreMedic
SnoreMedic is an easy to fit mouthpiece which can reduce snoring.
You can re-adjust by re-heating it if you do not make a firm impression or if your lower jaw is not advanced forward enough.
The material used for SnoreMedic is not as durable as some other mouthpieces and the airway opening is likely to collapse while fitting. This means that it's important you can breathe through your nose while you wear the mouthpiece.
