The Pacifier Stop Snoring Device Review
I feel like it’s a high-quality product that’s well made and priced affordably, but others do disagree with me so do your own research before shopping for a stop-snoring solution.
Introduction – The Pacifier Stop Snoring Device Review
The Pacifier is a stop snoring device that uses suction-cup technology to keep the tongue pulled forward during sleep. I’ve reviewed a few different devices like this in the past – but this one caught my eye because the design was incredibly simple. It’s a one-size-fits-all device, though it isn’t intended for children under the age of 12 – and it says on the package that it’s ‘clinically-proven safe & effective’.
I was pretty impressed with it when I first got it in the mail – but did this positive initial impression withstand the test of time?
Here’s what I learned as I unboxed, researched, and tried The Pacifier for myself.
As far as the details are concerned, The Pacifier is a pretty straightforward product. It’s made of a soft, flexible, rubber-like material that doesn’t require any special boiling or fitting prior to use. The only customization that might be necessary is a ‘trimming’ of the edges if it rubs against the gums in an uncomfortable way. This can be conducted with a simple pair of scissors, and won’t take but a few seconds.
As far as performance was concerned, I found The Pacifier to work very, very well. I wasn’t sure what to expect, to be honest, as I’ve tried a lot more mandibular advancement devices and have more experience with them than with products like this – but I definitely have to say that I was impressed with how well it worked. The suction technology is surprisingly good! It really held my tongue in place, and did so fairly comfortably.
All in all, I was impressed with its overall performance.
This product may technically fall under the realm of the TSD, or ‘Tongue Stabilization Device’. It’s basically designed to hold the tongue forward during sleep to help prevent snoring.
Attention! I haven’t seen any specific clinical studies referenced on the product website or in the instruction booklet – but the booklet does say that the product is ‘clinically-proven safe & effective’. I did find myself wishing that this ‘clinical evidence’ were easier to find – but as it is, I haven’t yet seen it or even found a way to locate it.
Is this product FDA cleared?
I haven’t seen any reference to FDA clearance while researching this product – so the answer seems to be no.

How does the product work?
The Pacifier basically works by using suction technology to keep the tongue pulled forward during sleep. This is supposed to reduce constriction in the back of the throat and keep snoring to a minimum.
My Video Review
And from what I’ve experienced so far, it definitely seems to work.
What are actual customers saying?
It was difficult to find actual customer reviews on this product – probably because it’s relatively new to the market. It’s even listed under the ‘new products’ section of the official company website.
But as a customer who’s literally used this product myself – I can vouch for it but not everyone is the same. It seems to do a great job. It gets a positive two-thumbs up from me.
An update: since this review was written I did find quite a few negative reviews on Amazon and here is one of them:
What you can expect
At first, you might experience a sore tongue and gums. You may also find it difficult to keep the device in all night long until you’ve gotten used to it. In the instructions, they say to wear it for short, ten-minute intervals during the day to get used to swallowing with it in – and this is probably a good idea.
After a week or two of use, you should find yourself getting pretty comfortable with it. Just remember not to give up if you don’t have good luck at first, as products like this can take some getting used to.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
I would definitely say that The Pacifier stands up to the competition, in more ways than one. For one, it’s a high-quality product that seems to do its job very well. Two, it’s made of an extremely comfortable material, and seems to work wonders for keeping your tongue out of the back of the throat. And three, it’s incredibly easy to use.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The main difference between this product and other ‘typical’ stop snoring solutions is probably the fact that most stop snoring products are designed to advance the lower jaw instead of pulling the tongue forward.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
No, you won’t need a prescription or a doctor’s involvement to buy or use The Pacifier.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that I discovered about The Pacifier after unboxing and using it.
- The product seems well-made and well designed
- It works well and seems to do what it was intended to do
- It’s priced very reasonably
- It doesn’t really require specialized fitting
- It may not work for everyone
- It might take some getting used to – especially if you don’t like the idea of sleeping with something in your mouth
- Some people have a tough time learning to swallow with it in – which can definitely cause some problems
In the end, I was honestly impressed with The Pacifier. I feel like it’s a high-quality product that’s well made and priced affordably, and I would recommend it to anyone suffering from a mild to severe snoring problem. It might not help everyone, as it only holds the tongue forward instead of the entire lower jaw – but on the flipside, holding the tongue forward is often all that’s required.
On this note, it’s worth mentioning that this device is (in my opinion) much smaller and less-invasive than many mandibular advancement devices – which is another feature that I really liked about it.
Information! If you’re in the market for a stop snoring device and aren’t afraid to try something a little bit different, then The Pacifier is definitely a product that you should take a second look at.
