Tomed SomnoGuard 3

So after years of snoring and finally causing my wife to sleep downstairs and not sleeping well something had to be done. I researched and found this device. The science made sense and the success rate and reviews seemed to support it so I bought one. Fitting was easy and in simple terms I have not snored since!Positives I literally stopped snoring as soon as I wore this device. No discomfort for me. My mouth closed fully over the guard so no dry mouth. I am missing a few rear molars and this is not a problem. No personal sleep issues Negatives Apparently I look like Hannibal Lector! Slight teeth realignment in morning which soon corrects. I don’t understand why this doesn’t work for everybody as the science is logical so all I can say is give it a go and be patient. Any negatives will outweigh the positive of not snoring!

This was the 6th MAD I have purchased and I have found them very effective so far. However, when trying to fit this latest one I had a disaster. It collapsed and folded in on itself. I tried to re mould it but it got worse, splitting where the stick goes in. Returns are not accepted so I am left with an expensive blob. The quality is nothing like previous purchases and although I am not sure, i feel that the timings are also different to previous instructions. Maybe too long to be immersed in hot water.

I was diagnosed with mild sleep aponea and I'm waiting for a CPAP machine. I thought I'd give this a try whilst I was waiting. Easy to fit, although it took a second attempt - be careful not to bit too hard on second fit! Reasonably quickly got used to wearing it but instant results. Snoring and breath holding stopped instantly. Although, only two weeks in my teeth are still aching when I wake up but I feel refreshed and my wife is no longer being disturbed. One night I didn't wear it and I was back to breath holding and snoring. I'm convinced this works well for my condition and I assume it is much better than wearing a CPAP mask.

Please be aware that if you are a woman, or man with a small mouth, this device will feel very large in your mouth and induce the gag reflex. I can't even keep it in my mouth for more than 2 seconds without the need to gag and remove it. My lips don't fit over the plastic at the front and the thought of actually getting to sleep while wearing this is a non-starter. Very disappointed and complete waste of money as no refund is possible as I've taken it out of the packet.

Hi I recently purchased this item as snoring has been a serious problem for myself and wife for many years. After checks from the hospital which confirmed there was nothing medically wrong led to even more frustration. After ten years my wife and I finally separated and divorced , we finally reconciled but the snoring was again becoming a serious issue.we researched on snoring on this site and purchased the product with hope of a little noise reduction, night one was an amazing success and has continued to be successful. We have now remarried, and yes the mouth shield came on our honeymoon too. I had absolutely no problem adjusting to wear which again was a blessing. I am a sceptic so didn't really think such a simple device like this would work but it's worth every penny and more. I seriously urge anyone to try it , I love my wife and through no fault of my own was causing a terrible amount of stress to her through lack of sleep. Please try it and I sincerely hope it works as well for you as it has for me. The snore test was very accurate too.many thanks

Purchasing and using this is an absolute revelation. Amazing is a superlative that is just bandied around these days, but to use amazing when describing what it has done for my wife and I is an absolute truth.Our relationship was on the brink of meltdown (not breakdown) because of my snoring. I felt rotten because of what my snoring was causing and my wife felt rotten because of a lack of sleep and the related job issues, in particular attendance.However, we purchased this on the Tues lunchtime and it was here by the Thur lunchtime so top marks for a prompt service, especially during the Christmas rush.Having read a few reviews, paying attention to the fitting issues and having read the instructions a couple of times I was confident to fit. It really was as straight forward as the instructions suggest, despite the manufacturers recommendation to get it done professionally. Just remember to suck, push with the tongue and on the sides with your fingers. It works. I did find the initial fit not quite right so I immediately remoulded (remembering to only submerge in hot water for 10secs on successive remoulds) and achieved a good fit.Now I snore fairly shortly after hitting the pillow and I have been known to snore with the best of them. My snoring is exacerbated when I have a cold or when I drink alcohol. My first night of use was on the Thursday, after my works do and with the obligatory seasonal cold in tow as well. So coupled with the fact that this was to be my first wearing it was an absolute trial by fire. The perfect storm so to speak!Result! I did not snore. I did not spit it out, choke have breathing issues or anything else.This thing, in my case, really does work. Second night of wearing last night with duplicate results.It really is easy to wear (poss I have a big mouth!). If unsure of the lower jaw position required just ensure that the lower teeth are in line with the upper teeth when moulding, well that was enough for me to bring my lower jaw forward and stop the dreaded snoring.Difficult to believe that something this simple in relative terms (although I do appreciate the technology that has gone into it) can have such an absolute and startlingly profound effect.Would I recommend this product? Abso-bloody-lutely! In fact I've already recommended it to two friends who are also in the professional snoring club.Tomed SomnoGuard 3 - A HUGE THANKYOU, from both my wife and me.Merry Christmas.

I've used the previous models and been happy with them. This one does not impress, probably my own fault. The instructions do say in bold that for best results it should be professionally fitted, which trebles the cost of the appliance at the least. When it comes to fitting, getting the timings right as regards the hot water is crucial. To long, even by seconds, in the water and it is far too soft. As it says in the instructions, fitting can be repeated, which was essential.However, while fitting nicely, it is far bulkier that the previous version to the point of discomfort. I've gone back to the old one, I hope I can get another.
Has helped my wife a hell of a lot

Has significantly reduced the amount of snoring _ although hasn't eliminated it entirely. However, in general, it at least works to allow sufficient time for my wife to fall asleep. My wife tells me that snoring isn't as loud either.It definitely moulds to shape, just follow the video instructions, its very strange the first time you wear it, feels like you can't breath but actually just need to breath more through your nose, once asleep don't know its there and after a day or two it just becomes habit.Wife is a lot happier and def less arguments regards sleep, so very happy with this, hope it continues to work.

I completed the snore test and this device was recommended and it arrived promptly after ordering.When moulding the device to fit I succeeded in crushing the edges and splitting the where I bite at the front. Therefore I have not used the device because the instructions state that if it is split it should not be used.The instructions do recommend not attempting to mould the device yourself and clearly I am not competent enough to follow the instructions provided.I am going to try to find a technician/dentist who can fit/make a device for me.As a result I cannot possibly recommend this device.

Your product has saved my marriage! Lack of sleep due to a partner snoring, is terribly hard to live with. Your MAD has totally stopped all snoring..I'm amazed. Thank you so very much
