Hoped that this would be more effective than the snorewizard, however, it is sadly not. The device is difficult to fit effectively due to the need to press your tongue against plastic that has been dipped in boiling water... perhaps I am the wrong type of snorer and the device is not to blame, however the fact that you can't return it after opening (for obvious reasons admittedly) means that you are taking a risk spending the money and hoping for a cure. On the plus side this is more comfortable than the snorewizard... but as it doesn't work this is fairly irrelevant.

Apart from being a challenge to mould according to the instructions, this mouth guard is simply too big and clunky to be comfortable (or work) sadly.
Tomed SomnoGuard 3
on the 13th Jun 2015
Hi. I was diagnosed as not having apnoea but I continue to believe I wake myself up by snoring loudly - I normally sleep alone by the way. So the appliance was recommended by the consultant to try to assist with this. It's a little difficult to seal my lips with the appliance in my mouth and I am finding I wake up and the appliance is on the pillow having fallen out (been rejected from) my mouth. So I'm not sure if I'm starting to get any benefit. Perhaps I should mould it in hot water again so that my mouth shuts more easily???

I did the snore test which recommended this product. My girlfriend now wears ear plugs instead so you'll probably see where this review is going... It is very hard to get used to having your lower and upper jaw joined together while you sleep. I slept for maybe an hour in total the first night I wore this product. When I did sleep I only woke with drool on my pillow or almost choking on my own saliva that builds up with this product. The only redeeming feature is that my girlfriend said the snoring was less noisy but she still needed earplugs so it didn't really work for me. I did try again, and again but considering the aching jaw every morning and the drool (I'm not sleeping on a towel as some people recommend like some kind of man-baby) and the fact that it only partially helped my snoring its not getting a great review or rating.
Not for small jaws

I can see how this would work however as I am a small woman, this is another to be added to the pile of devices made for hefty men. I was barely able to get it inside my mouth to fit it without feeling like my jaw was going to dislocate and it left me with lacerations inside my cheeks because it was just too big. For those who like me are on the small-skulled side, don't bother; it's made for rugby players.
Hard to set up
on the 2nd Dec 2013
Product arrived well wrapped and in good condition..I read the instructions carefully regarding the heating time for the item, and as i have fitted numerous kids sporting mouthguards considered myself and experienced user. However the product is made of REALLY soft thermoplastic and on heating became so soft that it adhered to itself thoroughly and despite much care was unsalvageable..£35 down the pan..havent made my mind up if i'm going to try again as its a lot of cash for what is not much more than a sporting guard.
Tomed SomnoGuard 3

I was amazed with the product, it actually worked, after years of loud snoring, I finally had a quiet night sleep, my partner was very happy. However, it only lasted 4 nights, the Somnoguard wasn't strong enough! I tried to re mould it as of the instruction but it totally went of shape, I since bought similar guard through my dentist and it's been fantastic.
Didn't work for me
on the 13th Aug 2013
I had tried the Snore Guard previously as being the cheapest device available to stop my snoring. This didn't work perfectly as my lower jaw tended to drop whilst asleep and the noise started again. I reviewed the other devices available and opted for the Tomed SomnoGuard 3 as the next best priced device. I had great trouble with the moulding the sides collapsed during the process and the device was beyond recovery. BSSAA were very helpful and gave me another device free of charge and talked me through the moulding process. I tried again and had a degree of success in that my top set of teeth had a good degree of retention but the lower jaw had very poor retention so when asleep my mouth dropped open again. BSSAA recommended the Tomed SomnoGuard AP, and I watched the video showing the moulding process. It looks to me to be the solution as the retention seems superb together with incremental adjustment for the advancement of the jaw ...... but another £130! Given my time again, I think that I would have gone for this but I did struggle with forking out £130 which is why I experimented with the cheap options, now I have spent around £80 and have a couple of nasty plastic blobs of no value to me ...... I guess I could try selling them to the Tate Modern! My advice would be ...... go for the Tomed SomnoGuard AP rather than SomnoGuard 3 as the moulding process and retention seems superior.
