Introduction – Snore Free Now Stop Snoring Device Review

My first exposure to this product was through the official Snore Free Now website. The device itself is a stop snoring mouthpiece that’s FDA cleared and made in the USA – though I found myself a bit skeptical of it right from the beginning due to the quality of the product website.

The site just seemed ‘sales-like’ to me, and looked more like an ‘as seen on TV’ page than a simple product/company webpage – though of course, this isn’t necessarily an indication of whether or not the product would work well or not.

I went ahead and did the usual research – and discovered right away that there were some pretty prevalent differences between this product and ‘typical’ anti-snoring mouthpieces.

One of the first things I noticed was the fact that the Snore Free Now device is shaped quite a bit differently. The center of the product seems to ‘stick up’ more than I’ve seen on other similar devices. I also noticed that the company claims that their product is ‘the best anti-snoring mouthguard on the market’. That’s a big claim – but is it true?

Here’s what I found out about the Snore Free Now device over the course of my research.

Product Details

This product is touted by the manufacturer as a ‘non-surgical solution that will ensure everyone with a good night’s rest’. It’s also said to be ‘unobtrusive’ and ‘comfortable to wear’. The Snore Free Now is a patented device that was said to be designed by a famous doctor – though surprisingly the doctor’s name isn’t readily apparent on the product home page. The product is also said to be clinically proven and hospital tested – so I was interested to find out exactly how well it’s been shown to work.

Type

This product is technically an MAD (Mandibular Advancement Device).

Clinical Studies

Clinical studies and scientific data are always big things for me – because I feel that there’s just no better way to determine how well a product is working than through scientific research.

But even though the Snore Free Now is said to be ‘clinically tested’, I was a bit disappointed by what I actually found.

In the FAQ section of the product website, I found that the Snore Free Now has a 94% success rate – though this number didn’t otherwise seemed to be mentioned, and no specific data was given to support such a statement. I also found no other reference to clinical or hospital-related trials or tests – which only served to make me more skeptical.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t impressed by this lack of information. If a product has a 94% success rate, then I would expect the data to be displayed loudly and proudly – and it just wasn’t. Even after quite a bit of searching, I still couldn’t find it.

Is this product FDA cleared?

Yes, this product has been cleared by the FDA.

By the time you factor in shipping and everything else, you’re looking at a pretty hefty $99.94 price tag. $25.76 of that is shipping – so shipping on this device is definitely expensive on international orders. This was pretty discouraging to me – especially after seeing the ‘free shipping on all orders’ banner on the home page.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. Saying that all orders come with free shipping almost seems misleading to me. I realize that orders to Canada and the US are probably not as big a deal as an international order – but saying ‘free shipping on all orders’ just seems plain dishonest.

I wasn’t very pleased by this.

This product is sold by a company called IFMC Inc. According to their LinkedIn profile, this company’s mission is “To provide value-added, academically and theoretically based marketing and distribution consulting services in conjunction with practical, real-world solutions”.
According to the official website, the company’s physical address is as follows.

IFMC, Inc.,

21520 Yorba Linda Blvd,

Suite 449 Yorba Linda,

CA 92887

I did quite a bit of research about this product – and at this point, I’m sorry to report that I didn’t really find much in the way of customer reviews or complaints at all. I’m not sure if this product just isn’t that widely used or if it just hasn’t been reviewed online very much – but at this point, I haven’t found anything to make me think that it’s a scam.

How does the product work?

This product basically works by keeping the lower jaw pulled forward during sleep. This is said to expand the airway and help to relieve constriction. According to the FAQ section of the official website, it ‘gently postures the jaw in an advanced or open position thereby creating increased airflow that eliminates snoring.’

What are actual customers saying?

I was, unfortunately, unable to find many customer reviews about this product. I did find one pretty good review that seemed legitimate, but it was a negative report. In it, the customer complained that the device didn’t stay in the mouth all night long.


What you can expect

According to the FAQ page on the product website, the device may cause a bit of minor pain in the lower jaw. It says that you can try to re-mold the device to fix this, but that it might take a few weeks for your jaw to get used to it.

Does this brand stack up against the competition?

This device is similar to many other devices on the market – though I’m unsure as of right now if I would say that it really ‘stacks up’. I feel like there are other, better devices on the market that have been more thoroughly tested in clinical settings than this one – and might choose to go with one of those before I would try something like this. The website does say that the product has a 94% success rate, but this data is unverified – so I have a tough time believing that it’s as good as it sounds.

Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions

The main difference between this product and other typical solutions is that it’s shaped a bit differently. It also comes with free shipping if you live in the US or in Canada – which is definitely a good deal.

Shipping to Australia, however, is pretty brutal from a financial standpoint. I wasn’t impressed with this.

Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?

No. You can order and use this device without a prescription or doctor involvement.

Pros and Cons

Here are the basic pros and cons that I discovered about this product over the course of my research.

Pros

  • It has a large airflow hole
  • It’s made in the US and seems to be crafted of high-quality materials
  • It’s FDA cleared
  • The company offers international shipping
  • It’s BPA free
  • It uses boil and bite technology to achieve a custom fit

Cons

  • Shipping to Australia is pretty high
  • I didn’t see enough clinical evidence to be convinced that it really has a 94% success rate
  • The return policy isn’t very customer friendly at all. Returns are only offered if the product is proven to be defective.

Conclusion

All things considered, I wasn’t too impressed with this product. It seems well made and well designed, and if you live in the US or Canada it might be worth it due to the free shipping – but even then, the lack of clinical evidence and the sales-like look of the website really turned me off.

This doesn’t seem to be a product offered by a company that cares about the consumer. This seems to be a product offered by a company that wants to sell as many units as they can without having to bother with returns.

Does it work? Yes, – to a certain extent and for some people. It was designed by a dentist, and is a pretty typical MAD – so odds are good that it will probably work, at least for some.

Are there better products out there?

There are definitely products with more supportive clinical evidence and better return policies – and for me, these are essential.

Costs and shipping

You can buy this product for $74.18 on the official product website. Yes, if you order it and expect to have it shipped to Australia, it’s going to cost you more than what it’s initially listed for. Shipping to Australia is also a pretty high $25.76 – making this a $99.94 purchase once everything has been added together.

The best place to buy this product is probably on the official Snore Free Now website – as they ship internationally and offer free shipping to the US and Canada.

  • Product type: MAD (mandibular advancement device)
  • Clinical Studies: Yes (supposedly), but no specific data is provided
