The AirSnore mouthpiece is a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) that is meant to keep the airway in the back of your throat cleared while you are asleep by slightly pushing your lower jaw forward, and locking it in that forward position.
This will help you stop snoring because snoring often occurs when the throat is clogged by your jaw, tongue, or both, making it harder for air to pass. The AirSnore mouthpiece adjusts to your jaw’s shape through a simple boil-and-bite process that you conduct at home.
Like most MADs, since the AirSnore locks your jaw in place it will decrease teeth grinding.
The AirSnore also has a breathing hole at the front, which will allow you to easily breathe through your mouth with the device on. This may not seem like an important detail, but this way you will be able to wear the AirSnore even when you have a stuffy nose due to allergies, or the flu.
The company also states that denture wearers should be able to use it (though they should still consult with their dentist to see if they can use any mouthpiece)
The AirSnore manufacturers say the mouthpiece has been manufactured in FDA approved facilities, this does not mean the FDA approved the product itself, it only means that the company is “complying with good manufacturing practices”.
The AirSnore has a breathing hole at the front of the device, allowing you to breathe through your mouth when you have a stuffy nose, or simply because you usually breathe through your mouth (it should be mentioned that breathing through your mouth will increase your chances of snoring when not wearing a mouthpiece, as opposed to breathing through your nose. This is because the airflow will hit the back of your throat, which increases the chances of making the tissues in your throat vibrate, which makes you snore).
The mouthpiece is made from a thermoplastic in order for you to be able to adjust it through the boil-and-bite process. There is no mention of exactly what kind of thermoplastic is used.
Snoring often happens during sleep because our muscle tissues in the back of the tongue and throat relax, allowing air currents to make them vibrate. When lying on your back, your lower jaw is pushed backward, clogging the back of the throat thereby making it harder for air to pass. The increased air pressure when you breathe then makes you snore.
The AirSnore, like most MADs, keeps your lower jaw pushed forward while you are asleep in order to keep the airway at the back of your throat cleared, so you can breathe easy.
Clean your mouth and brush your teeth before wearing the device or shaping it.
Make sure to read the instructions on how to mold the AirSnore to your jaw.
!! Seems like only one fitting can be done, meaning you need to be very careful when doing the boil-and-bite process since remolding it may make the product lose some of its efficacy.
Here is what you can expect from the instructions for the boil-and-bite mouthpiece:
Just like any other device that you put in your mouth, the AirSnore should be cleaned after each use as per the instructions of the manufacturer, but in general:
Store the device in a dry place, out of reach of your dog…
There are no official numbers on how long the AirSnore should last, and because it’s a relatively new product, there aren’t many reviews online (though the few that can be found say it is a good product), so we can’t infer how long it should last. But most products of about this price will last between 4 and 12 months, and it will depend on the user. For instance, whether it is properly cared for, and whether the user grinds his/her teeth or not.
The two most common side effects are
Other potential side effects include
All the side effects should be at their worse in the first few days and quickly decrease in intensity.
There does not seem to have been any clinical trials made specifically on the AirSnore, though there have been many proving the efficacy of Mandibular Advancement Devices.
Mandibular Advancement Devices have been proven to be effective remedies to snoring, and AirSnore’s few reviews online say it is a good product. Because of its breathing hole, you do not need to breathe through your nose, and since it is boil-and-bite it should be comfortable for many users to wear, after having gotten used to it.
The AirSnore can also come with a rubbing supplement that you apply on your chest and under your nostrils in order to make breathing through your nose easier. The company says this should significantly increase the efficacy of your AirSnore mouthpiece.
The AirSnore Anti-Snoring Mouthpiece can be bought from its official website: https://airsnore.com/us/
It can also be bought on the manufacturing company’s website (Bauer Nutrition)
It costs $57.58 for the mouthpiece and $129.64 for the mouthpiece and the rubbing supplement. There is no warranty but there is a 60-day money back guarantee. There are no shipping costs for sending the product to the United States, United Kingdom, or Canada.
The official AirSnore website, and the AirSnore products themselves started selling in 2015, which explains why there aren’t that many reviews and customer feedback of the product online. But the parent company is a well-established firm called Bauer Nutrition. This company has been selling nutrition products “for over a decade”, many of those products have been extensively reviewed. But as previously mentioned, the smaller firm only in charge of the AirSnore mouthpieces has only been around since 2015.
Both Bauer Nutrition and AirSnore say it always manufactures its products in FDA approved facilities, meaning FDA inspectors think the manufacturing plants are up to FDA standards. But this does not mean the AirSnore mouthpiece has been FDA approved.
Though there aren’t many reviews online simply because the product hasn’t been on the market for long, those few reviews are really positive. Also in my personal experience, AirSnore worked a treat and is definitely one of my favourite mouthpieces out there combined with the rubbing supplement.
The AirSnore is a Mandibular Advancement Device, made of thermoplastic that allows you to adjust the device to your mouth using a boil-and-bite process. It has a breathing hole at the front so the user can breathe through the mouth while wearing it. The boil-and-bite process makes it so most users will be able to quickly adapt, and become comfortable using their AirSnore mouthpiece. Though there is no good way of knowing the average lifespan of the product, most products of this type and price will last between 4 and 12 months. To make it last as long as possible, make sure to take proper care of it, cleaning it after every use, and storing the mouthpiece in a dry environment.
Potential side effects, like most MADs, include jaw soreness, excessive drooling, tender teeth, and gum irritation. These side effects should be at their worse in the first few days, and significantly diminish in intensity relatively quickly. Like most boil-and-bite mouthpieces, many users will feel comfortable wearing the device within a few weeks.
The AirSnore can also come with a rubbing supplement, which is a liquid you apply to your chest, neck, and under your nostrils. The company states that people who use the device in conjunction with the rubbing supplement find much better results in terms of the reduction in snoring.
The company that makes the product is related to a well-established company called Bauer Nutrition. But the AirSnore Company itself has only been active since 2015, making it somewhat difficult to find reviews on its mouthpiece and rubbing supplement. And even though it says its manufacturing plants have been FDA approved, it does not mean the product itself has been FDA approved. There has also not been any clinical trials run on the AirSnore mouthpiece to judge of its efficacy, though boil-and-bite MADs in general are a proven, effective remedy to snoring.
Summary: The AirSnore Anti-Snoring Mouthpiece is one of the best devices on the market since it has a simple design, adjustable through boil-and-bite, and because of my personal experience and the good reviews it has gotten online. It is also offered by a reputable company, but the product itself has not been on the market for very long, which means no one has been using it for very long (can’t be more than a year since the product was first sold in 2015).
Overall it seems like this is a great product, and because it is cheap, and has a 60 day money back guarantee, trying this product out can be a good idea.
