I must say that I’m pretty impressed with the SnoreRx too and it definitely seems like a solid option for anyone who wants to try a new stop snoring mouthpiece.
Introduction – SnoreRx Stop Snoring Device Review
The SnoreRx is probably one of the more sophisticated devices that I’ve reviewed – mostly due to the fact that it has so many different features. It’s also undergone several improvements since I first wrote about it a couple years ago, so I’ve updated this review with a few new points.
SnoreRx is a customizable mandibular advancement device that’s intended to open up the airway toward the back of the throat.
This would, in theory, help to stop snoring by preventing the vibration of throat tissue – which is really what all MAD devices are supposed to do.
But this product seems a bit more in-depth than most – which is a good thing. It really does pack a lot of features into a small package, so let’s take a look at them and figure out if the SnoreRx is really all that it’s cracked up to be.
There are a lot of special features in this product, so we’re going to take a minute to talk about them.
- Custom Thermal Fit
Essentially, this provides a personalized fit for an individual’s mouth. The patented Thermal Matrix Design was introduced more recently, with the goal of delivering a superior impression and good adhesion. Custom fitting the device can be done in your own kitchen and is fairly easy. The official website has a two-minute video that shows how.
- Micro Fit
This feature allows for precise calibration in 1mm increments, if needed. It’s intended to deliver comfort and effectiveness. A short video on the official website explains exactly how to adjust the device.
- Teeth Cushion
This feature consists of a patented cushion (made from copolymer) for the teeth.
- Max Flow
This feature is designed to assure full airflow through the mouth while the device is in use.
- Posi Lock
This is said to lock-in your selected setting, though it can be unlocked to allow you to change your settings at any time.
This function provides a clear reading of the amount of jaw advancement that the device is currently set to provide.
- Advanced Design
This feature seems to be how adjustments are made to the device. It doesn’t utilize rods, rubber bands, torsion, or screws of any kind. You actually just ‘click’ the device forward or backward to make small adjustments – which is pretty nice.
- Dental Lab Quality
This device and its components are said to be made from medical-grade copolymers. No hard acrylics are used.
This is actually a long list of features, and it’s nice to have them categorized this way because they help to show consumers exactly what they’re getting when they purchase the product. There’s actually a very nice graphic on the product website that tells all about these features. You can find it on the official website.
The SnoreRx is technically an MRD, or mandibular repositioning device.
According to the official website, the company says that ‘Clinical studies have shown that mandibular repositioning devices (MRDs) work well as a treatment for snoring.’ As far as I can tell, they don’t link to any specific studies or reference any specific publications, though I know from my own research that this type of evidence does, in fact, exist.
Is this product FDA cleared?
Yes. According to the official website, the SnoreRx is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of snoring.
As of the time that this review was written, the SnoreRx could be purchased for $99 on the official product website – which is actually a pretty good price when you consider what you’re getting for your money. This device is very complex and seems to do its job very well – so I definitely don’t think that $99 is too expensive. Shipping to the Australia is not included in that price!

Now, having said this, I should also say that I discovered far more positive reviews than negative ones. I still hold to my opinion that this device is worth the $99 they charge for it, because they seem to get far more positive than negative responses from their customers.
How does the product work?
This product basically works by keeping the lower part of the jaw pulled forward during use – thus opening up the airway and reducing the risk of snoring. It’s also adjustable, and offers ten different 1mm increments of customization. You can ‘click’ it forward or backward until it fits and works the best for you.
What are actual customers saying?
Actual customers seem to be saying great things about the product. There are a few negative reviews circulating out there, of course, as we already discussed in a previous section of the review – but all in all, people seem to be very pleased with the SnoreRx.
What you can expect
According to the official website, it can take 3 to 5 nights of consistent use to really get used to wearing the SnoreRx. It may also be normal to feel a bit sore after using it at first, since your mouth might not be completely used to it if you’ve never used anything similar before.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
I would answer this question with a definite ‘yes’. It might be a bit more expensive when compared to other devices in its price category, but I wouldn’t count this as a negative. It really seems to be a well-made device that will work for most people. It also seems to do what it was designed to do – so in this respect, I would definitely consider it a competitive product.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The main difference between this product and other stop snoring devices is the fact that it is adjustable to such minute measurements. 1mm increments are pretty small – and the ability to adjust it on such a fine scale is definitely a selling point that other devices cannot easily compete with.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
No, this device can be purchased and used without a prescription or the involvement of a doctor.

Here are the basic pros and cons that I’ve discovered about the SnoreRx.
- It’s reasonably priced

It has a good reputation, includes a lot of features that seek to make the experience better, and even comes with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
If you’re in the market for a new stop snoring mouthpiece, then you should definitely take a look at the SnoreRx before making your final choice.
Costs and shipping
This product sells for $99. Shipping is extra, but the exact amount varies by location.
The best place to buy this product is from the official company website. They sometimes offer special promotions, though you need to keep your eye out for them as the company does not usually ‘give them out’ upon request. You may need to pay a little extra to get this device shipped to Australia.
