What Is SnoreRx?
SnoreRx is a snoring mouthpiece that you can use to prevent snoring while you sleep. SnoreRx 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.
What Is A Snoring Mouthpiece?
Snoring mouthpieces, also referred to as "snore guards", "snoring mouth guards", "anti-snoring mouthpieces" and other similar names, are devices which advance the lower jaw to stop snoring. They are more technically referred to as Mandibular Advancement Devices. These devices are worn while sleeping to open the airway and stop snoring.
How Does SnoreRx Work?
SnoreRx works by keeping your airway open while you sleep. This is accomplished with an impression of your teeth that is kept in place while you sleep.
You first make an impression of your teeth at home using boiling water. After you've made a firm impression of your teeth, you lock the impression in place by adjusting the SnoreRx to the best position for you.
A firm impression of your teeth and a secure position of the mouthpiece in your mouth can keep you from snoring. You can adjust the settings on SnoreRx until your snoring stops, this may take a few nights.

How Does SnoreRx Compare to Other Mouthpieces?
When reviewing, what sets SnoreRx apart from other snoring mouthpieces such as Zyppah are that it combines multiple fittings methods for maximum comfort and fit. SnoreRx uses a boil and bite method to make an impression of your teeth and then the position of the upper and lower parts can further be set.
Many mouthpieces only fit to your teeth using a boil and bite fit but SnoreRx takes this one step further and helps lock in the best position to stop snoring.
